The luck of the blind climber

Andy Holzer from East Tyrol has overcome six of the Seven Summits, the highest peaks of all continents. He is a mountaineer. And he is blind from birth. But he is also a mountain guide and people trust him. Not blind, but because he encourages other people. Like a good Essential Leader!

How important happiness and satisfaction are for people is no longer the slightest doubt - neither in the social sciences or in business psychology, and certainly not in the entrepreneurial reality. In an interview, the blind climber Andy Holzer was asked why he did that, he could not even enjoy the wonderful view on the summit.

It depends on satisfaction and joy

His answer: that does not matter. The satisfaction and joy comes from overcoming the great challenge of making the right decisions, taking the right steps.

You do not have to see this, it happens in the mind. Andy Holzer is a guide and mountain guide. People trust a blind man to become a climber. Here is the allegory for the Essential Leader. He is also a guide and leads to make the right decisions for the right steps.

Too much control creates uncertainty

This also happens with the right spirit for the whole, through the attitude and inner attitude. The Essential Leader has an unshakeable belief in success. Even if the route is difficult. Ways are different. Many executives control the way and go in if it is not gone as they imagine.

They don't trust the skills and strength of the people to get there in their own way. This lack of trust creates this with the employees. You will be unsure. You secure yourself with the manager and they get the impression that they have to do everything themselves.

Stimulate and encourage action

This is merely the cycle of trust. This is similar to a mountain climb. The guide gives impulses on how we get the safest and best to the summit, he does not take the ascent. Its task is to be able to create the self-encouragement.

This is exactly what the Essential Leader does in his role as a guide. Give the right impetus and encourage action. It takes a lot of confidence in yourself and in the others. Just like a blind mountaineer and guide.

The two pillars of happiness

Because: Luck has two very important pillars that you should always keep in mind:

  1. It's a feeling
  2. It is homemade

"Stay on the factual level" does not work

Feelings have been banned from the business world. At least on the outside. This is not possible internally, because no feeling is impossible. Even the speech “We want to stay on the factual level” is connected with a feeling.

Rarely, this sentence achieves what is to be achieved with it, namely, the elimination of unwanted emotional human impulses, which managers and executives often can not handle badly.

Unfortunate employees are resisting

Of course, working people move to the material level immediately, but they are not happy. They feel misunderstood, helpless or inferior.

The consequence of this is resistance. Usually subtle in the form of forgetting the factual deadline, pushing the factual importance of other tasks, factual “impossibilities” and so on. Everything can be factually explained and checked.

The two qualities of happiness

In addition to the two pillars, there are two qualities of happiness: the short-term durable and the permanently effective. The short-term feeling of happiness always arises when we get something that meets our value system and meets our needs.

That is why different people are happy with very different and different things. But not very long. Gifts are unfortunately forgotten quickly, their half-life is clear.

Long-term happiness is created by our own efforts

Long-term effective happiness comes from the satisfaction that comes from our own efforts. It is when we can bring our essence into effect through our own contribution.

For that, we need the encouraging climate that the Essential Leader in Company to create knows through an empathic perception of the personality and the essence of the people expressed in their feelings.

The Essential Leader as a leader and climate designer

The Essential Leader is a feeling leader and a climatic designer. Emotions are valuable signals for him, which lead him directly to the essential in his leadership task: the understanding of the uniqueness of the person he wants to lead and the recognition of their potential.

With this knowledge, he can encourage them to live these potentials and use them in the company. People who feel so understood are happy people and joyfully make their contribution, the basis for holistic profit in the company.

    Happy employees? How sweet! With what goes wrong in Germany, it is no wonder that more and more highly qualified people are leaving. Nevertheless, I find your efforts to inform your readers admirable.

  2. Carl Kruel

    Do you also offer individual coaching? That would really interest me.
