There is a fact that most leadership experts know, but rarely discuss: great leadership requires bringing together people’s light sides (aspirations, values, and dreams) with their dark side (frustration, anger, and disgust with the status quo). Think of leaders you respect and admire, and most of them have enormous dark sides that are partially responsible for their success.
But how do we tap the dark side without becoming possessed by it? This presentation will show you how. This is the first time I will talk about this material, which will be the subject of a book I will publish in 2014.
The take aways include:
1. Discover some aspect of yourself that is new to use in your own personal leadership.
2. Use that aspect as a source of motivation to use in service of your work/mission.
3. Learn how to reframe your personal and professional challenges.
4. Discover how to develop a noble obsession that will cause you to be crazy productive in your business.
Great leadership requires tapping your dark side.
