On the McKinsey Quarterly website, Joanna Barsh Josephine Mogelof and Caroline Webb describe how "centred leaders" can achieve extraordinary results. They claim that executives can succeed in work and life by adopting a leadership model that identifies their strengths and allows them to connect with others.
The authors have distilled a set of five leadership capabilities which they say generate high levels of "professional performance and life satisfaction" when combined. The capabilities, which make up the model of "centred leadership", are:
1) Finding meaning in work.
2) Converting emotions such as fear and stress into opportunity.
3) Leveraging connections and community.
4) Acting in the face of risk.
5) Sustaining the energy that is the life force of change.
