The Three Most Effective and Helpful Tools in Leadership Training
Are you training to become a leader? Are you currently eyeing that new leadership post at work? Are you running for a leadership position in the government? Are you a student competing to become the president of the student body?
Regardless of what leadership challenge you are facing, you need to be aware that leadership is not something to be taken lightly. It is something you need to enter in with caution. It is a privilege, but it is also a responsibility. It is not enough to hold that leadership position. It is important to be a good leader. And for that, you need leadership training.
If you plan to have leadership training, here are some of the most important tools you should have:
1. Leadership pictures and posters. Have you seen CEO offices studded with photos and past CEOs or posters depicting leadership? Those photos and posters are not just there for decoration purposes. Not all people may believe it, but these photos and posters have a strong positive impact on anyone who wants to become a good leader.
Photos of past leaders, either past CEOs of the company or well-known national leaders, can create a positive environment conducive for current leaders. Past leaders can remind you of the legacy you are now part of and of the responsibility to uphold that legacy. Posters of well-known leadership personalities and even inspiring leadership posters can radiate a positive aura inside the room to immerse you in an empowering environment where you won’t feel down or discouraged, but feel motivated and inspired instead despite any challenges.
2. Subliminal audio tracks. Music feels relaxing when you’re doing something. Studies show that music can make the mind generally more receptive. If you’re training to become a leader, why not play the right kind of music in your office? And this kind of music is subliminal audio tracks. Subliminal audio may pertain to songs and sounds that are used to deliver subliminal messages to the subconscious mind. While all you may hear in the surface are songs and sounds, the audio is actually delivering positive affirmations to the subconscious mind.
If you’re not familiar with subliminals yet, these are products, usually in the form of audio and video, that are especially used to communicate with the subconscious mind. Their purpose is to program the subconscious mind’s way of thinking. Since it is believed that the subconscious is what rules most of our actions, behavior, thoughts, ideas, beliefs, habits, impulses, and instincts, it is a very powerful controlling force that resides within us. If the subconscious thinks its way towards good leadership, then you will become a good leader.
3. Subliminal videos. While you may use subliminal audio as the background music for your office, you can also back this up with a daily dose of subliminal videos containing positive messages about leadership. These subliminal videos take just a few minutes of your time but can have a great impact on the way you think and feel towards leadership.
This is a good habit to start the day with, so look for videos you can download over the Internet. They’re worth the extra investment as you train to become the excellent, wel-respected, and admired leader your followers won’t forget.
