    Why Warmth Is the Underappreciated Skill Leaders Need. 

    When it comes to success in leadership, there has never been just one playbook. Some leaders are extroverts, natural mentors, and charismatic speakers; others prefer to lead by example and take a more hands-off approach.

    There is, however, one simple fact that leaders ignore at their peril: those who demonstrate high levels of “interpersonal warmth” have a better chance at long-term success.

    Research confirms that a leader’s overall effectiveness is predicted more by warmth than competence! Do you agree?

    We create beliefs that sometimes are destroying relationships forever. 

    We create beliefs that sometimes are destroying relationships forever.

    They live between the lines of reality and “the obvious” which we construct. Our “obvious” is one of “many obvious”, and other people have different ones.

    Learning how to navigate this below the “obvious” construction zone, it’s a core skill. The objective of our growth is to become more conscious of the construction process. In both ourselves and others.

    We construct beliefs, using theories and judgments. We base them on selected facts and personal, subjective experience.

    Find out how you can learn to reconfigure your beliefs. And influence people and create more rewarding relationships.

    Grow and Progress with Change, Reconfiguring Beliefs. 

    Self-awareness is important because it helps us make the right choices in life, and it helps us understand how we relate to other people. Having an accurate understanding of your beliefs and motives is a key part of developing it.
