Beyond Sight: Unlocking Leaders Vision Towards Possibilities

Do you believe what you see, or you see what you believe?

Every eye holds a story, yet every eye narrates a different story. It’s the same eye that carries the picture of reality in our brains and it’s the eye of the brain that holds the capacity to carry our life. But from not what we see, but by how we see. As a leader having a vision is to see something that does not exist yet has the potential to become a reality.


Restricting the Flow of Vision

Sense organs are about inner perception of our external world and vice versa, when we put our vision in context of leadership. It’s the ability beyond Sight leaders vision the future beyond restriction but what is it that still restricts the mind to expand. It’s the experiences of the past visions that we hold in present which stops us from believing in the new possibilities, it majorly and subconsciously restricts us to try new perceptions and we end up repeating in the same pattern of business, like whatever we see we record it in our mind and till how much duration we hold the vision impacts our decisions.

Sometimes we feel hard to let go some of the scenes of life be its good or bad and that stops us to the natural flow of ideas. In our mind we hold onto many perspectives from the past experiences and whenever we get any unicorn opportunity to jump into a new vision. We usually tend to lose it because of the fear of losing the vision we earlier believed into. A leader only grows if he/she aims to become a better person from the past rather than using the bitterness to oneself, to employees and its organization. The past vision which we carry had a chapter to learn and complete, and by not turning the page to the new visions of life we fail to leave our impact as a great leader.

Observe and Absorb

If as a leader we avail the power to go beyond sight leaders vision that doesn’t serve the good in us we automatically tune ourselves into the present moment. The state of being present in our vision and mind it is eventually a present for us in life. When we are at the most attentive state and fully delved in a moment we see beyond our sight.

We absorb the whole nutrients from the environment we been viewing. for example in a metro usually we see people on phones or talking to someone and others thinking about something. Usually people view this scene as it is but as a mindful leader in the same scene. We would be more aware of the crowd and would surely get some idea to implement in the organization. Learn about people and trends that can be creatively utilized in the favour of our organization.

Clarity and Purpose

While a leader is quiet observant in his/her viewings, he/she moves ahead towards the path of clarity in life. Having a clear vision of what we want, is a huge impact a leader creates in his life and of others. Many face problem in knowing what they want and what they can give, that’s the reason they lack purpose. We usually see people looking through others vision and believing in their viewpoints which eventually leads to fulfilling their purpose. This differs us from not being a leader but a blind follower spending whole of our life in searching value.

In the process of being observant in the moment we connect with our inner ourselves, we realize our purpose and that is how beyond sight leaders vision their future. This allows us to bring clarity in our lives, we get the ability to see the bigger picture, identify opportunities and obstacles. Become a guiding light to others that illuminates the path forward. Like the eye visualizes the world around us, visionary leaders visualize the outcomes they seek to achieve.

Vision Inspires Action

We as leaders are always ready to make a move, to make a change but change can only be enabled. When we perceive our senses through growth mindset, everyday life gives us an opportunity to see some same set of things from different perspective and act uniquely. As, we act how we think and we think what we see. We embark on the potential to make our visions into strong reality, we inspire the world around us. The sense organ eye not only allows us to perceive growth in business but also enable us to empathize with others. Through visual cues and expressions, propelling the organization towards the realization of their shared vision.

In the realm of leadership, the visionary leader’s use of the sense organ eye is not confined to mere sight. It is a beacon that illuminates the path to greatness, and transforming one’s own vision into reality, shaping the future with its remarkable ability to perceive, visualize, empathize, and empower to achieve extraordinary outcomes.

Leading Empathy In Corporate Culture

An often overseen and trivialize quality of a truly effective leader is their ability to exemplify empathy in corporate culture.
There exists a new rise in demand of a great leader rather than just a good manager to create a good work culture and lead an organization on the path of success. Recent trends in leadership showcases the demand of empathy along with the high-driven zeal to work with the organization, for the organization and for self as well.

Making empathy central to your company culture along with the performance-driven outlook is the new highlighter for job fit. But often the quality of great leaders that went overseen and trivialize is – empathy. Prominent leaders such as Naushad Forbes, Saugata Gupta, Bharat Puri, Pankaj Arora, and Shailesh Haribhakti stress on the Importance of Empathy in the Workplace and in leadership.

Hence, the question arises, how making empathy central to your company culture has to do with the exceptional leadership in success of any organizational goal.

Tech-firms makes up to 60% of the empathy index (an annual ranking of businesses on the basis of how empathetic they are), as per the reports of Empathy Index, 2016.

Nestle India Chairman Suresh Narayanan said:
“Leadership is all about being effective by being authentic, empathetic, empowering, inspiring, enabling and trusting. Empathy should be like air … Sadly, in our corporate world, being successful goes with arrogance, ruthlessness, greed, ego and hubris.”
In the era of rising job lay-offs, high-level managers, righteously stated great leaders, are looking for a new human skill in the employees, i.e., empathy along with required job skills. The new age trends in leadership demands empathy at all levels of the employment. Creating a positive workplace culture in any and almost every MNC today.

said Jyoti Bowen Nath, managing partner at executive search firm Claricent Partners.


CASE STUDY (The Importance of Empathy in the Workplace)

Rashmi in employee working for the XYZ Company. She is a senior executive of the company. Due to heavy workload, she works for 10-12 hours daily. The behavioural change was noticeable due to the burnout. Without even considering, she ordered that all the employees under her must work for the same amount of time. The burnout started showcasing effects on professional and personal front. Being a leader, you would not want your colleagues to follow this mantra and suffer and affect the quality of the productivity and hamper personal life as well. So, by being mindful and empathetic, the executive can inculcate the sense of being heard, valued, and understood in the corporate among the employees so they can emotionally resonate with each other at all designated levels.

The success of any organization will be based on its ability to understand and serve the shifting needs of its customers, employees, and communities.

Enhancing The Senses: Leading The Art of Leadership

The 5 senses we hold introduces us to the world, how we perceive the world through enhancing the senses is what counts on to the value we create in our lives on our professional and personal level. As we navigate complex landscape of leadership, it is a skill that goes beyond intellectual processes.

It involves deep meaningful connections, inspiring confidence, clarity and creativity. We all have the same sense organs yet we carry different perceptions, adding onto a perspective on enhancing the five senses. Let’s make a dive into the depth of leadership through the lens of a leader.

Seeing The Vision

We see things from our mental blocks of past. In the world of corporates, the past is just a reference and the present must be invested to forge new ways to impact the world.
With every sensory adaptation, thoughts start processing with it. In the context of eyes, when we see something, a picture is been created in our mind. Our mind responds to the vision, how we respond to the vision is what makes a leader different from the crowd. Visual elements like colour, design, shape and physical surroundings have profound impact on mood, creativity and motivation. By diverting our focus to visual aspects, leaders can create great opportunities for the growth of the organisation
Example: An employee looking at the clock might think of the hours left to return home. While a leader looking at the clock might think of an idea to complete the task in the remaining time.

Listening Beyond Ears

We usually hear sounds but how we interpret is the response to our listening skills. Listening is a great art if consciously used daily. Mindful listening breaks the limitation of mind, it helps in current interpretation of context in a manner. That opens up the possibilities to understand the same thing from other people’s sensory adaptation. Mindful listening is a hallmark of impactful leadership. It can open the doorways to unheard ideas and feedback that leads to the culture of innovation.

Harnessing The Power Of Smell

Smell is the most direct trigger of memory and emotion, it reminds you of your past experiences. In leadership, a leader must have the ability to smell the new opportunities, trends and threats way before it arrives in reality. If the leader is mindful about the smells around. He/She gains the insight of what’s coming next and remembers of what has been in the past in order to not repeat any mistake. Scents too can strategically promote a positive and energizing atmosphere. By considering the olfactory experiences of their team members, leaders can ensure a comfortable and inclusive environment that promotes well-being and productivity.

Leveraging The Sense Of Touch:

While touch may seem less relevant in the context of leadership. But it truly encompasses not only about physical touch but also emotional and symbolic connect. We as leaders always hold the power to touch the lives of all our teammates and clients. An appropriate gesture that expresses the feeling of touch portrays the ability of the leader about his/her conscious practice of empathy. That highlights care, bonding and growth within the organisation.

Savouring Success:

A leader is someone who has the taste of failure and success, while integrating the sense of taste in the work place. It is closely tied to the concept of shared experiences. Leaders use their sense of taste by creating accurate opportunities for the company. Whether in achieving a milestone, overcoming a challenge or reaching a goal. That can be metaphorically celebrated and savoured within the team reinforcing a sense of achievement and unity

In the dynamic world of leadership, all the senses together play a very crucial role in enhancing productivity, innovation and growth. While unlocking the power of all individuals may leadership be a symphony of sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. A harmonious composition that resonates with the heart and mind of those who lead.
