As we grow, we gain new experiences and insights and we develop new beliefs, some of which are limiting for our potential. Personal leadership development is an ongoing process of self-discovery, application and discovering new ways to achieve for yourself and others by breaking through your own assumptions, which may be untrue, yet lived as true. As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country. As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.macbeth.dev3.develag.com/map2.php
A Way of Being by Carl Rogers – Cum Grano Salis – Medium
And now as I lie on my deathbed, I suddenly realize: If I had only changed my self first, then by example I would have changed my family. From their inspiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better my country and, who knows, I may have even changed the world. Through this online platform, my intention is to stimulate your thinking about your personal leadership, to support and encourage you to achieve what you want for yourself and others.

I believe personal leadership is about taking responsibility for your life and discovering and realising your potential to be the best YOU you can be through: On a more serious note, here is how not to help people on Rogerian terms: But there is a way to help. Everybody needs a climate that promotes growth.
You can help by providing that climate, to allow their own self-actualization to unfold. This is why this approach is called person-centered and non-directive: People have a potential that will manifest on its own given the right climate.
So, what does this growth-promoting climate look like? It has, Rogers explains, 3 components:.

You might recognize these as the components of authentic communication. In my understanding, the difference is that in this case the communication is asymmetric. The focus of the conversation will inevitably be on the person in need of help, who feels a lack of congruence, self-acceptance or understanding, and the helping person is there to provide that environment to foster their growth.
These components help persons develop by allowing them to. This quote alone feels liberating to me: Here is a characterization of congruence:. If find this concept so cool, and so counter to what our intuitions are about what a therapist is or should be like.

I happen to know that Acceptance and Commitment therapy a more recent form of therapy has the same approach: With regards to acceptance , Rogers says:. How can the therapist make sure to be experiencing such radical acceptance?
Again, this hints at a radical approach to therapy, where human meets human. Then I attempt to formulate a synthesis of what I heard instead of trying to find a clever comeback. Surprisingly to me this has lead to deeper conversations. But it seems well worth the effort. There are other interesting chapters in this book I completely ignored in this article.

Worthy of note are his concrete examples of the effects of his principles, his descriptions of his experience of growing old, and his attempt to build person-centered-communities. Carl Rogers introduced his principles as the necessary and sufficient conditions for growth.
Meanwhile, especially within Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy, a large number of targeted and effective psychological interventions for specific issues have been developed. While a nondirective approach might lead to progress, such targeted interventions are most likely going to lead to a quicker resolution of specific problems. Nonetheless, for therapists and non-therapists alike, Carl Rogers has a lot to offer.
Additionally, as I said in the beginning, the focus on authenticity as something you can feel hints at something even deeper: I have talked about this process elsewhere , but I intend to investigate this further.
