Allow life to be

When you leave others to be, when you just be, then see the magic happen.

when we do not exert a negative or resistant thought upon something, when we leave the universe to work, see what happens. Just give up the fight, nothing comes from it other than exhaustion and the wrong outcomes.

When we overly try to engineer an outcome it rarely comes, and what does come is out of force and coercion, therefore, it won’t last.

When we leave it and step back, remove the force and allow things to flow and occur naturally, then the amazing happens, the magic works and we allow life to be.

Management corrodes, leadership nourishes.

The system loves management, it enables efficiency, it maximises the return from all of the assets.

Management is control, is fear, is catching out, is replacing trust with systems, is removing creativity, is imposing compliance, is organising assets, is anti-human. It is the corrosion of people.

Leadership is not about authority, it is about inspiration, about trust, empathy, inclusiveness, is about creating safe environments, is about the human, not the asset. Leadership is about everyone, not the leader, it is about putting people first. It is about collaboration, not coercion.

We do not need more management, we need true leadership. We need to break out and try creating organisations that truly inspire, that make people feel good, trusted, appreciated and worthy.

It takes a brave person to lead and a weak person to manage and control.

No one needs more being told what to do, they need more appreciation of what they do right. No one tires of good feedback, support, understanding, being made to feel worthy and trusted. Most importantly, no one ever gets tired of being praised.

It is that simple, but it requires all of us to take on the responsibility of being leaders and being the change we want to see.

Management is corrosive, we all flourish under true leadership.
