ArtistsMBA Track 5 – Artist Entreprenuer

The Mindset of a Leader – Part 3

Artists MBA, Professional ProgramWhen we think about leaders, usually our focus is on their behavior and how their behavior influences the world around them. And perhaps we try to emulate that behavior with varying levels of success.

The reason we have varying levels of success is because behaviors come from underlying beliefs about our world and our place within our world. In order to become authentic leaders in our own lives, we must build a foundation of beliefs that empower leadership behavior.

In this, the last of 3 classes, using Christopher Howard’s 18 Assumptions of Empowered Leadership, we explore:

  • The final 6 Assumptions of Empowered Leadership
  • The benefits and challenges of each assumption
  • And how we can apply them in our day-to-day lives

The Mindset of a Leader – Part 2

Artists MBA, Professional ProgramIn this second of three classes on the Mindset of a Leader, we continue the discussion about what a leader thinks and believes.

When we think about leaders, usually our focus is on their behavior and how their behavior influences the world around them.  And perhaps we try to emulate that behavior with varying levels of success.

The reason we have varying levels of success is because behaviors come from underlying beliefs about our world and our place within the world.  In order to become authentic leaders in our own lives, we must build a foundation of beliefs that empower leadership behavior.

In this, the second of 3 classes, using Christopher Howard’s 18 Assumptions of Empowered Leadership, we explore:

  • The second set of 6 Assumptions of Empowered Leadership
  • The benefits and challenges of each assumption
  • And how we can apply them in our day-to-day lives
