One of the most vital skills all leaders must have is creativity. What I see out there especially among women is a complete disconnection from the beauty of imagination. Why?
Over compensation. Female leaders hide in strategy and metrics where they feel they have to be in order to keep their place in a "man's world". No this is not a rant and no this is not about blaming. Just a simple observation. One that I have personally chosen to believe. Here's what I learned though...the more I suppressed my creativity the sicker I felt. Clear cut. No bullshit. So I started to question this. How could this be "RIGHT"? It was time for a new rule and new playing field. I learned to lead from my intuition, my heart and my imagination. Then I simply snap in the logic.
Results - my business became fun and profitable, I dropped 45 lbs without the bullshit, reclaimed my health and above all really embrace the juicy moments I spend with my loved ones.
Use your creativity. Trust it. Let that right side of your brain shine! It will feel so liberating and isn't that what you really want? For your life and for the lives of the people you serve?
Let me drop some tips here for you to nurture your creativity. They help me everyday and I know they will support you too:
*Draw your dreams. Try this a few times. When you wake up in the morning and you actually remember what you dreamt, grab a scrap of paper and describe it in a sketch. It does not have to be elaborate but if you are serious about gaining a leadership edge you'll take the time to do it.
*Creativity foods list. Add this list of foods that support the parts of your brain that are responsible for insight and invention:
Cold Water Fish
*Long walks. In nature if you can. No fitbit. Just you, your breath, perhaps some music and your imagination.
*Play more games! This one is particularly fun for me personally. I just spent an epic morning teaching my kid to play checkers.
Try any or all of these and then shoot me a message. We can go way deeper together to access and support the right hemisphere of your brain in ways that will radically improve your business, health and life. BOOM!
