The Five Discoveries

by Goleman, Boyatzis & McKee

Primal Leadership includes the best model that I have seen for self-directed learning. It takes and continues you the learner on a sustainable and circular path of life long learning. To get started, make these five discoveries.

1. My ideal self: Who do I want to be?

2. My real self: Who am I?

Pause to discern the strengths and gaps.

3. My learning agenda: Building on my strengths while reducing gaps.

4. Experimenting with new behaviors, thoughts, and feelings.

Practicing the new behavior, building new neural pathways through to mastery.

5. Developing trusting relationships that help, support, and encourage each step in the process.

This is the core of the Primal Leadership process. However, to get the full and feel the full authentic impact, get and read the book.

    The five steps should be done in order, with reflective deliberation at each step, as one thing does lead to another. The process then remains iterative –
