Greetings!

Follow your heart and your mind will soon follow. Sounds a bit familiar, like you’ve seen it on a greeting card, book cover, or in your Instagram feed.

What the heart, and its counterpart, the mind represent are the intangible elements that enable us to do what we do. The heart focuses on emotion and feelings; the mind on rational thinking and problem-solving. Now take a moment to consider what might happen if leaders, rather than choosing one or the other, lead with the heart and mind as one.

They are not as odd a couple as you might think, and in many ways are complementary when engaging with others. When your heart and mind are connected your reaction to any given situation, both as a participant and an initiator, begins to change. Their synergistic collaboration links how we identify and recognize our emotional sensibilities and capabilities to educate, engage, and empower our teams. 

When your heart and mind work in tandem, your intentions and actions are aligned. It’s that simple, but not exactly easy to practice every day. This begins with mental clarity and focus, followed by a shift in perspective, and an increased presence, or awareness. And as I’ve shared before, self-awareness is the key to cultivating great leaders on their path to greatness.

Yours on the journey,

Hal
