From the time we are infants, we begin learning techniques to control others. For instance, a baby may realize that crying is an effective way to get attention and have his or her needs met. As adults, many people still seek ways to gain control, which is often driven by our inherent need to feel safe. However, when it comes to motivating others and bringing out the best in them, influence tends to be a far more effective mechanism than control – particularly in the context of teams and organizations navigating change. 

As a professional Certified Therapeutic Coach and the creator of the Clear Beliefs Method for deleting limiting beliefs, healing childhood wounds, and resolving traumas, Lion Goodman has over 40 years of experience as an executive teacher, healer, and subconscious pattern detective. He is also the author of five books, including “Clear Your Clients’ Limiting Beliefs” and “Creating on Purpose,” has taught workshops on four continents, and has been a featured speaker at summits and on radio programs, podcasts, and television shows. In Episode 144 of The MINDSet Game® podcast, Lion discusses the following:

  • Why hierarchies – in which leaders tell their teams what to do and think, and expect them to comply – are no longer the most effective structures in today’s world, and why organizations that prioritize collaboration are more likely to thrive
  • Why it’s important for everyone (particularly leaders) to become more aware of their own beliefs, and strategies for how to do so
  • How getting curious about others’ beliefs can foster a more collaborative, productive environment 
  • The value of encouraging people to shift their beliefs from the inside out, rather than simply telling them what they should change 

Lion offers a few websites if you’d like to learn more about him and his work: for leaders and organizations if you are interested in his methodologies and trainings for Lion’s personal website, where you’ll find his articles on control vs. influence and more
