Down dog for posture, warrior pose for leadership
Yoga has a lot of benefits. It’s good for stress reduction, it’s good for your felxibility, and it’s a great excuse to wear sweats out of the house. As this Eblin Group post points out, though, yoga is good for your leadership skills, too. Here’s one way:
Ego Can Lead to Injuries. This one’s kind of ironic because I wrote about the common denominators between injured yogis and injured leaders a few months ago. It’s not much fun eating your own dog food, but I should have followed my own advice. I learned this last month when I ended up with a really stiff neck for the better part of a week. I got it from forcing myself into a headstand when I didn’t really have the mojo to do it one day. It was a total ego thing – “I always do the headstand and, damn it, I’m going to do it today.” I got the headstand, but also got a stiff neck. Leadership Lesson? Your ego can get you in trouble if you don’t pay attention to all of the input.
