SUITED MONK LEADERSHIP
Many leaders are successful in their ''Suit'' (external status and financial success) but have not realised or connected with their ''Monk'' (true purpose). As a result a GAP has been created between the leader they represent to the world and the authentic leader that they truly are. In a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world, how do we manage ourselves through changing and complex times and lead from within with purpose and authenticity? How do we build a profitable business that supports both the good of society and our own wellbeing?
In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous VUCA world we need a fresh perspective on leadership and the way we manage ourselves, our teams and organisations. The VUCA world needs wise leaders who not only rely on 'fact-based thinking' but also on their own self-awareness, intuitive thinking and ethical behaviour, to close the GAP between their Suit and Monk.
The wisdom of Suited Monk Leaders brings a fresh perspective to these leadership models (servant leadership, transformation leadership, authentic leadership) in ten ways. Suited Monk Leaders:
1. Makes wise decisions by establishing facts combined with intuitive insights for the good of all
2. Achieve high-performance around a shared purpose and vision
3. Encourage intuitive insights and innovation
4. Develop imagination and foresight
5. Encourage their teams to self-realise and to find true happiness
6. Practice Monk-to-Monk communication which touches hearts
7. Pursue a vision for the good for society at large as well as for their organisation
8. Work with others in humility and integrity
9. Lead with emotional stability
10. Work with the internal flow of energy flow to navigate through the VUCA world
The Suited Monk Leader is well-equipped to meet the challenges in a VUCA world, to rise above petty self-posturing and a fearful concern for self interest. The Suited Monk Leader is a leader of poise and gravitas as well as a humble leader.
