Are you working in a company or law firm where executive coaches are hired to help high potential leaders develop their leadership capability? Does your company or law firm provide leadership development for high flyers? One of the most powerful questions you can ask is “What are you so passionate about that drives you to succeed?” Emotionally intelligent and socially intelligent leaders at the top make executive coaching and leadership development available for leaders at all levels of the organization.
What Drives You?
Talent does not necessarily determine success.. Rather, those who are the most enthusiastic about their work are the most likely to succeed. Peak performance depends on the choices we make with with our lives and the passion that energizes us.
Research on motivation describes our main drives in three primary areas:
3. A sense of community and desire to help others
Regardless of your driving force, you have to tap your passion to work hard enough to become exceptional. You have to be totally committed to an endeavor to have both feet in and fully engaged.
Organizations need to get better at allowing people to choose projects where there is intrinsic motivation to reach desired goals. to Unfortunately, organizations may actually inhibit people from developing their passionate abilities by providing extrinsic motivations..
Talent Is Insufficient
In addition to talent, there are other capabilities that are essential to drive for results.
o Belief in yourself unleashes talent.
o Initiative sparks your talent.
o Laser focus channels your talent.
o Preparation provides the foundation for your talent.
o Practice improves your talent.
o Perseverance energizes your talent.
o Character showcases your talent.
You must still prepare, practice and persist to achieve success. High performance is fueled by a strong purpose and a passionate desire to produce extraordinary results. Research is conclusive that talent and hard work are necessary for high performance.
Working with a seasoned executive coach trained in emotional intelligence and incorporating leadership assessments such as the Bar-On EQ-i and CPI 260 can help company leaders tap the passion that drives success. You can become a leader who models emotional intelligence and social intelligence, and who inspires people to become fully engaged with the vision and mission of your company or law firm.
