How important luck and satisfaction for people, there is no longer the slightest doubt about that – neither in the social sciences nor in business psychology and certainly not in corporate reality. In an interview, the blind mountaineer Andy Holzer was asked why he was doing this, since he couldn't enjoy the wonderful view from the summit.

His answer: it doesn't matter. Satisfaction and joy arise from overcoming the great challenge of making the right decisions, the right ones steps to do.

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 unshakable belief in success. Even if the way is difficult. ways are gone differently. Many Executives check the path and intervene if it is not being followed the way you imagine.

They do not trust in the skills and abilities of the employees in their own way Objective get. This lack of trust creates this among the employees. You become insecure. You secure yourself with the manager and they get the impression that they have to “do everything themselves”.

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 are out of Business Welt been banished. 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, functioning employees immediately move to the factual level, but that doesn't make them happy. She feel misunderstood, helpless or defeated.

The consequence of this is Resistance. Mostly subtle in the form of forgetting the factual date, putting forward the factual importance of others Tasks, factual “impossibilities” and so on. Everything is factually explainable and verifiable.

The two qualities of happiness

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
