​​​​​​​But *Enlightened Leadership* is more important to us than ever before.. We are facing a global crisis. The media constantly bombards us with news which highlights division, aggression, lack, and disaster. The numbers of people who are isolated, unhappy, stressed, anxious and depressed are already at epidemic proportions – over half the prescriptions in the UK are for anti-depressants – and there seem to be no signs of the numbers reducing. The pace of change appears to be accelerating and around the world, people are struggling to deal with its impact. There must be a significant change in both the way we approach the challenges of today and in the quality of leadership at every level of society.

What does it really mean to be an Enlightened Leader? We are currently surrounded at every stratum of society by examples of leadership which is anything but enlightened. The cost of poor leadership is high and far-reaching and affects us all. It is time for a change, a paradigm shift is required if we are to stem the tsunami of stress, depression, and anxiety which is being created as a result of leadership which is based on ego, division, and fear.

We are bombarded with information via the news, social media, and documentaries. The vast majority of them are spewing out news about political mudslinging and uncertainty, wars, people being displaced, hunger, global warming, poverty, division, and natural disaster. There was a time not so long ago when the news was limited to the daily newspaper and the news programs which were shown a few times a day on terrestrial TV which closed down for the day at midnight.  Today there is no let-up to the onslaught of information via phones, tablets, PCs, TVs, etc.

This time last week I was enjoying the extremely well organised UK Business Awards (thanks to all the staff there). I was one of the five judges tasked to pick the winner of the Inspirational Leader category. I absolutely loved the day – tiring though it was, but in every way the best sort of tired! To listen to so many clever and dedicated people who are putting their heart and soul into their work - grafting to create a better way, to motivate their teams and to do their absolute best every day – well it was an inspirational time.

Would facing this panel feel stressful_.png
As I type, I am getting into position behind my very own judging panel table, ready to judge a succession of hopeful people who are no doubt deeply anxious and stressed by the whole occasion! I am obviously not judging a dancing competition (that probably didn't need clarifying for those of you who know me!), no, no. I *am* judging the #InspirationalLeaders category in the UK Business Awards 2019.

Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy social depression interview with gina gardiner.png
I believe the western world is being badly affected by what I describe as 'social depression'. A feeling that you are helpless, that things are being done by others over which you have no control. A sense of overwhelm, fatigue and low mood which persists and you are not quite sure why. I think we are absorbing the negativity which surrounds us and for the most part are unaware of the growing miasma until it sucks our vitality. Rather like the Dementors in Harry Potter.
