Human-centric leadership?


The mission of THE SENSEI LEADER MOVEMENT is to support and develop human-centric leaders around the world. Leaders at all levels from the front lines to the c-suite. Leaders who care.

But what, exactly, is a “human-centric” leader?

There are 5 key components that make you a human-centric leader:

#1 Emotional Intelligence & Self-Awareness

A human-centric leader works continually to understand people and the self. To be aware of your emotions and their impact on others, particularly those who trust in your leadership.

#2 Interpersonal Skill

A human-centric leader cultivates strong, productive and positive relationships with others. Works to be an effective communicator and an effective listener.

#3 Caring

A human-centric leader cares––especially about the people you serve.

#4 Commitment to continual personal and professional Mastery

A human-centric leader is never quite finished. You live as an example for others and work continually to improve yourself personally and professionally.

#5 Sharing

Leadership is sharing––a leader shares. A human-centric leader shares power, authority and responsibility. You share respect, trust and loyalty. You know that your success is measured by the success of the people you serve and your success as a leader is in direct proportion to what you’re willing to share with others.

Does this sound like you? If so––excellent! Keep up the good work and remember always that:

“Perfection is not a destination––it’s a never-ending process!”

If not––excellent! That’s right––you’ve taken the first step toward becoming a genuine and effective leader. You’ve recognized areas where you want or need to improve. Now go for it!

A SENSEI LEADER is a human-centric leader––and some!

A SENSEI LEADER continually develops the 3 key characteristics of Courage, Compassion and Wisdom.

A SENSEI LEADER cultivates the most important assets of a leader: Respect, Trust and Loyalty. And does so first by sharing these assets.

A SENSEI LEADER Inspires, Empowers and Guides people to their very best.

The age of command and control is over.

Research is showing clearly people perform at their best, produce more and are far more creative when they know their leaders care. When leaders embody a common purpose and when leaders are willing to share power and authority. When leaders respect and trust them––first.

Admiral Grace Hopper said:

“Management is about things. Leadership is about people. For too long we’ve gone overboard on management and forgot about leadership.”

It’s simple. You lead PEOPLE. And leaders are people too.

Don’t get me wrong. Management is important too. And there are plenty of good people around to help you with that.

At THE SENSEI LEADER MOVEMENT––our focus is on people.

If this is the type of leadership you want to cultivate in your organization––let’s talk.
