Why Become a Peaceful Workplace Leader?
Leadership style and effectiveness have a direct impact on employee engagement, employee retention, company innovation, productivity, and ultimately revenue. That’s obvious. What is perhaps more surprising is that in more than 90% of workplace conflicts, poor leadership has been shown to play a significant role. That’s why peaceful leadership is so important: to both improve coworker trust and relationships as well as to proactively prevent workplace conflict and the many risks associated with unhealthy conflict.
Core Principles of Peaceful Leadership
Peaceful Leadership is a leadership model that centers around three Primary Pillars and five Core Competencies. The three pillars are Trust, Psychological Safety, and Inclusion. These directly refer to humans’ basic psychological needs when acting as members of a system or organization. A Peaceful Leader’s role in fulfilling these needs is actualized through competency in five critical areas: Patience, Engagement, Appreciation, Curiosity, and Empowerment.
