Is Your Battery Running Low?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Imagine that your needs are like a discharged battery that you are able to charge through your life activities.

When the bottom cell is sufficiently filled, the next cell can be charged. All human beings have 6 essential needs, or power cells.

Though, some people have faulty power packs - with a corrupted sixth cell that has been taken over by a leaky fifth cell. That is, they care less about other people because their self-esteem is so overfilled they hold others in total contempt - because they matter less than me!

Beware overfilling any one cell: Gluttony and Obesity with an overfilled Cell 1, Excessive risk taking for Cell 2.

And many have a leaky battery, where their own needs never get filled.

What does this mean for you as a Leader?

1. Your own needs need to be met BEFORE you have enough to give others, and

2. Whilst things may look OK on the surface - people tend to hide their emotional needs fearing that they are the only ones who have them.

By this, you’ll be better able to ask the right questions and better positioned to serve others and help them fulfil their real needs.

Abraham as Leck wanted to add a sixth level to his renowned five level hierarchy of human needs. Today, with our increased understanding through behavioral neuroscience, it was right to want to include it. These six human needs are the essential drivers of our everyday behaviors, actions and reactions. What does this mean for...

...you as a leader? While every leader needs to understand how to fulfill their own needs and they're role in helping all of their team members their essential human needs. Ultimately, by doing so, those leaders can fulfill their own need to help and serve others. We start with an empty power back. If your needs are not men, you want an empty shell. Imagine your brain is being powered by this rechargeable power pack. The very first thing that you need when you want born is air. Soon after you need food, warts and shelter. Yeah, sorry to tell you. You were born needy and totally dependent upon others your basic survival, and that is your first and primary need. What does this mean you as a leader? Well, if you're...

...running on empty, you know much used to anyone and as a leader, you help your team understand what they need and how you can help them satisfy their needs. The first cell or level are basic survive on here, physiologically needs. Basic survival means that you have air to breathe, you're properly fed and watered, you're in good health, have suitable shelter to stay warm and rest, and your sexual need to being made.

What does this mean for you as a leader? Well, if you don't look after your health, exercise, sleep and nutrition, you won't be able to achieve much and to encouraging guide your team into a healthier lifestyle and good...

...nutrition. Suitable exercise and proper rest sleep once are physiological needs a met, we look for safety and security needs. We all need to feel and be safe and secure and be free from fear. In organizations, psychological safety is the number one differentiator for personal and team effectiveness. What does this mean for you as a leader? Well, if you do not feel safe and secure and free from fear, then you are likely to make this even worse for your team and as a leader, allow your team members to speak up without any negative repercussions. Protect them from other leaders. Encourage all members to speak up freely and always encourage useful conflict and opposing ideas. Encourage everyone to build...

...on previous statements with yes and rather than know. But, but our physiological needs are met and our safety and security needs our met. We need to belong. We all need to truly belong to a tribe of people connected to US and who help us meet our needs, a tribe where we have equal value and we are treated as equal. So what does this mean for you as a leader? Well, you need a tribe. If it's lonely at the top, you ain't leading your own a walk. Treat all team members equitably. They may not be equals, but they have equal value. Encourage sharing and proactively acknowledging each other. A fourth sell in our power back is...

...the need to matter and our base needs are being met. We need to be recognized matter and that what we do matters. What does this mean for you as a leader? Learn to recognize and appreciate yourself, respect yourself and achieve mastery in your leadership walk, go out of your way to catch them doing something good and deliberately recognize all team members achievements individually and specifically, not a cattual great job team that's about as genuine as it seems to you. To complete respect for others, and especially your team members. Coach them for mastery in their roles and beyond, and I'll basical needs are met. We've got we are feeling safe, we belong, we matter. Well, is...

...that need for fulfillment or self actualization? When we are healthy and safe, we belong to that tribemary matter. We need to pursue how God given talents, to be creative and to fulfill our destiny. What does this mean for you as a leader? A leadership develops daily, not in a day. Pursue excellent and keep learning how you can be and do better. Think before you speak, and please remember to pause and breathe. Secondly, encourage, develop, guide and empower your team members daily. Your task is to make them better than you. That's what will be noticed by those higher up the food chain. The sixth level is the need to serve others self. transcendency.

When we are personally fulfilled, we transcend to think more about others than ourselves. We need to give and to serve and to fulfill our spiritual selves. What does this mean for you as a leader? You will only be truly fulfilled when you give and give some more. If you have yet to uncover your purpose in life. He's a clue that's going to save you many hours. It's not about you. You will born to serve others. How you servant, I will be your gifts to them. As a leader, your job is to servivors, and when your power pack is filled to burst in you can charge them up and help them find out and practice how they to serve others.
