Increasing Human Effectiveness:
Managing the Rapids of Change
Increasing Human Effectiveness is all about self-management and the well-being of the individual. Organizations don’t change, people change. When you give your people tools for self-management, they become accountable for their own success. The Cauldron Theory states that to pour water into another’s cup you must first have water in yours. Eric Boles presents concepts, teaches skills and provides tools that enable individuals to make desired changes in their lives and to thrive in the midst of change.
Perhaps the greatest challenge that you will ever face in life is the conquest of fear and the development of the habit of courage. Fear has always been the greatest enemy of mankind.
When Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” he was saying that the emotion of fear, rather than the reality of what we fear, is the cause of the associated anxiety, stress, and unhappiness.
Fearless Leadership is based on this premise. Just think: What would you dare to dream, be or do if you were able to overcome your fears. Fortunately, the habit of courage can be learned, just as any other skill is learned.
In his presentation, Fearless Leadership, Eric Boles helps people learn to systematically diminish their fears, while simultaneously build the kind of courage that enables them to deal fearlessly with the inevitable up and downs of business and life.
