I believe Natural Leadership is about being yourself. A natural leader doesn’t lead, he or she just is, and others just naturally follow. A natural leader is inspired and inspiring. A natural leader is the heart, rather than the head, of an organisation, radiating both passion and love. A natural leader encourages, enables and empowers people. A natural leader holds a deep and dynamic vision, rather than authority. Natural Leadership is a way of engaging with your social network, community and colleagues to share a vision and unite people in pursuit of a common goal.
For me, being on the trail and connecting with Nature is a wonderful way of clearing out all the extra noise that rattles around in my mind, connecting back to myself, and solidifying ideas that support what is truly important to me in the present moment. I feel a great sense of interconnectedness. Being disconnected from home, family, work and social life makes me take a good look at my life and myself. ‘Look deep into Nature, and then you will understand everything better’ [Albert Einstein] resonates greatly with me.
