Did you know that your heart is one of the first organs to be formed?
So it makes a lot of sense to check in first with your heart and gut, before you starting using your head to lead yourself, your team and your business.
Science is now confirming this. Being heart-centred in your life and your business is the next level of emotional intelligence that our global business world, staff and clients have been craving.
When you are leading your staff, do you measure them just using key performance indicators? Or do you connect with them on a heart-to-heart level. Who are they really? Do you know and understand their hopes, fears and dreams for themselves and their families?
If not, now may be the right time to connect not only with your staff and customers on a heart-to-heart level but also wholeheartedly with yourself.
When was the last time you checked in with your thoughts and feelings? Are you feeling positive, neutral or negative about your life and career right now? How is your relationship with yourself holding up?
Being mindful of your emotions on a regular basis can be an extraordinary tool to measure not only your own state of health and happiness but also that of your team and customers.
