We’ve worked with leaders all over the world and these high-achievers often fall into common unconscious patterns that stifle their creativity and limit their growth. We’re exploring the three dominant leader personalities with us: controlling, avoidant, and indecisive, to uncover the emotional triggers and unconscious fears that may be holding back your potential. In this episode, we discuss:

  • The meaning of success from a Jungian perspective
  • 3 persona types that affect leaders
  • How to transcend these patterns for true success

We’re gonna start the series looking at the shadow, because we always begin individuation with the shadow. What are the common shadow traits that a leader, a business owner, or an entrepreneur, or somebody in the corporate world moving up in their profession, what are the traits they have to consider in reaching that success they’re going for?

We’ve worked with leaders from big multimillion-dollar companies, to celebrities, to new entrepreneurs, women in the corporate world, men in the corporate world, people that run non-profits. What we found is that the things that are available out there for these leaders, when I was in the corporate world and when I started out as an entrepreneur, it was a lot of mindset work of changing your behavior and your thoughts. Even in the leadership, it’s about changing your personality or your patterns and behaviors. We’re going to approach this, and the shadow work is really a different way. We’re teaching this because we’ve worked with people on these topics for a long time. We’re going to put our spin on how to approach leadership in a deeper, more profound, spiritual and psychological way.
