Heart-Centered Leadership: Lead Well, Live Well
In today’s business climate, companies are often forced to implement sweeping changes in an effort to grow and survive. Organizations must be able to authentically connect with their employees by showing respect and care for their well-being – on and off the job. Amidst financial challenges, intense time pressures and limited resources, awareness of your employees’ needs tends to be the first thing that falls by the wayside.
The Need for Heart-Centered Leadership
Heart-centered leadership, characterized by care, concern, honesty and humility is not a “soft” skill but a “dollars and cents” one — which will ultimately provide realistic solutions to retain productive, content employees.
Heart-Centered Leadership begins with research, studies and scientific fact, all compiled into a book co-authored by Steinbrecher that took a bold new approach to how successful leaders achieve their legacy and emotional intelligence from the inside out. By adopting the principles of heart-centered leadership, you’ll boost over-all profitability by:
- Creating emotionally engaged, tuned in employees who are highly motivated to want to do their very best work for you
- Creating a workplace that attracts—and keeps—the best and the brightest
- Keeping customers and clients satisfied and using your services again
The Heart-Centered Leadership presentation explores both the heart and science of leadership setting a clear path for the attendees to achieve highly effective skills by: exploring what defines a good and bad leader and the impact of each, and reviewing research that indicates how, through a positive emotional climate, employees’ attitudes drive financial results.
The 7 Core Principles and Corresponding Virtues of Heart-Centered Leadership:
|1. Know Thyself||1. Commitment to Personal Growth|
|2. Don’t Judge||2. Open-Mindedness|
|3. They Need What You Need||3. Authenticity|
|4. Letting Go||4. Detachment and Trust|
|5. Know Your Impact||5. Integrity and Foresight|
|6. Associates Have a Choice||6. Humility and Humbleness|
|7. Care for the Heart||7. Self-Care/Emotional Health|
As each principle is introduced, Steinbrecher gives real business-leader examples of when the principle was practiced, or not, and the impact on the leader and the company as a result. Participants are asked to complete a personal development plan committing to enhancing and reinforcing their skills in the principle of their choice. This keynote closes with an inspiring and thought-provoking short video that reinforces the key messages in the workshop. It leaves the audience feeling motivated to reflect on their personal leadership style and to consider changes. The presentation is highly interactive and fully engages the audience from start to finish.

Manage Workplace Conflict
One of the most challenging roles of an effective leader is that of “peacekeeper”. Learning how to deal with conflict—rather than avoiding it—is crucial. Resolving conflicts in the workplace takes negotiation skills, patience, and a healthy dose of emotional intelligence. When a heart-centered approach to conflict resolution is engaged, more often than not, it can make the difference between positive and negative outcomes. It is also important to understand how the human element shows up at work. Many types of problems result when the needs for self-esteem and meaning are not valued or are even thwarted.
Susan imparts sound advice that will improve a leader’s communication and listening skills that will ultimately set the tone for successful resolution.
