To Be Impeccable Is to Be a Mindful Leader

Posted on by admin

Of all the 9 Ways to be a Mindful leader, being “impeccable” is the one people consider to be the toughest.  In fact, some people have gone as far as to say it is unachievable.  I could not disagree more.  And I think it comes from a misunderstanding as to what it means to be impeccable in this context.

It’s important to remember that being a Mindful leader is not a game of perfect.  Some days we are more brilliant than others.  It is about intention, effort and constantly moving in the direction of being increasingly Mindful.

Being impeccable is not about being super human.  It’s about acknowledging that we are human with all our frailties and all our wisdom.  To be impeccable is to honour others, to enable their success, and then to celebrate it, to showcase their work, to admit we have made a mistake, to admit we were wrong, to stand up for ourselves when it would be easier to say nothing.  All this requires courage.

As a Mindful leader it is important to “get out of the way”.  When you give someone responsibility have the courage to not interfere and impose “your way” or “your will”.  Their success is your success.  So, stand on the sidelines to guide if required, to support if needed, and to showcase their work and celebrate their success when it is warranted.  That is what it is to be impeccable.
