I was invited to feature on the BBC Radio Anne Diamond show recently, talking about Cognitive Hypnotherapy and how it can help with a range of issues.
As well as discussing how Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help problems such as anxiety and trauma (which I will talk about in a separate blog) we ended up talking about how it can also help business leaders. We discussed how the aspects of their personality that can motivate and drive them to be highly successful can also be the things that limit them and hold them back such as fear of failure which is just one example.
There are many other fears that can hold business leaders and CEOs from reaching their full professional potential and in the book, Why CEOs Fail, The 11 Behaviors That Can Derail Your Climb To The Top And How To Manage Them, authors David Dotlich and Peter Cairo offer 11 cogent reasons why CEOs fail, most of which have to do with hubris, ego and a lack of emotional intelligence. They describe the most common characteristics of derailed top executives -
Arrogance— you think that you’re right, and everyone else is wrong.
Melodrama— you need to be the center of attention.
Volatility— you’re subject to mood swings.
Excessive Caution— you’re afraid to make decisions.
Habitual Distrust— you focus on the negatives.
Aloofness — you’re disengaged and disconnected.
Mischievousness— you believe that rules are made to be broken.
Eccentricity— you try to be different just for the sake of it.
Passive Resistance— what you say is not what you really believe.
Perfectionism— you get the little things right and the big things wrong.
Eagerness to Please— you try to win the popularity contest.
All of these characteristics can be behavioural responses to a range of limiting beliefs and problem patterns. Using Cognitive Hypnotherapy, I work with business leaders to clearly identify and respond to the actual root causes of issues. This delivers fast, long lasting and effective changes, allowing business leaders to be free to reach their full potential.
