Personal mastery is about self-leadership:
Ability to discover ourselves set our vision and roadmap for ourselves and leads us towards our vision. It involves knowing our competencies, self-image, traits, and motives all of which form our self-concept. In an organization, when leaders have a high level of personal mastery, they can align with the organization’s vision and goals with ease. They will find it easy to have a shared vision, share their mental models, their (leadership) team learning will be good, and develop systems thinking. The highlights are the five disciplines that Peter Senge is referring to as essential for a ‘learning organization’.
Believe in yourself
You must believe in yourself. Whatever you want to teach and be prepared for the subject well. A good leader is considerate, simplifies the explanation of the subject, and kind, thoughtful, and good TEAMWORK. Have others believe in the products if it’s a sales job and have good knowledge of the items. You have to believe in your products to truly sell them. Keep in mind that not everyone would agree with your thinking or the system, but being a good communicator is another key to success in your leadership. Don’t forget about the ownership mentality, it is a must for success.
Leadership mastery is about seeing people, environments, and circumstances freshly, as if for the first time. The truth is, we are seeing everything for the first time because everything constantly changes at an ever-increasing rate of speed. Leadership masters are so free of preconceived ideas that they even question the validity of leadership itself, at least in the old-fashioned sense of the world. A great leader of the past was seen as indispensable to the success of their groups. But today’s great leader realizes that no one is indispensable, not even themselves. In today’s environment, a highly personalized, individually centered, crudely aggressive leadership style is rarely effective, and certainly not over an extended period. In today’s world, however, it is almost impossible for a purely authoritarian style of leadership to remain successful over the long term. People just won’t put up with it. And society has changed so that they don’t have to.
