Leaders Can be Principled AND High-Performing at the Same Time: Here’s How

Do you ever look around, at work or while reading the news, and wonder where the principled leaders are? If so, you’re not alone: systematic leadership failures are deeply troubling. They leave observers and stakeholders asking:
Do you have to leave your ethics and morals behind to become successful?
The answer is no, and there is hope for change. Tarra Mitchell, author of The Yoga of LeadershipA Practical Guide to Health, Happiness, and Inspiring Total Team Engagement, says we have the power (and the responsibility) to stop accepting unprincipled behavior.
“The time is ripe to acknowledge that principled leadership and high-performance can and do go hand in hand. In spite of what some might believe, you can be principled and lead successfully.”
The trick to becoming a more principled leader? There are three the traditional practice of yoga offers:
  • Discipline
  • Self-study, and
  • Orientation.
Inspired by kriya yoga, referred to as the work of the yoga practice, the above efforts combined support both high-performing and principled leadership.
Tarra’s article, Leaders Can be Principled AND High-Performing at the Same Time: Here’s How. (attached) explains this in depth, with actionable steps for resetting your moral compass as a leader.
