Food For Thought: Embrace a Sherpa Leadership philosophy to be fulfilled and successful…
💡 If you set out to climb Mt. Everest, one of the first things one does is hire a Sherpa, the leader of a mountain climbing expedition. What is unique about the Sherpa❓
Sherpa don’t celebrate how many times they reach the summit of Mt. Everest, BUT rather how many times they have helped others get to the top i.e. being of service
In business terms (or even in one’s own personal life), here are some personal lessons #entrepreneurs can embrace through the Sherpa leadership philosophy:
✅ When we shift our focus from making money to what our real “core for existence” is, we begin to transition from being transactional focused to being servant focused, in light of helping others reach their full potential. The more we make it about others, the more individual success one will begin to enjoy.
✅ Brand positioning based on serving and creating value vs purely a transactional focused mindset i.e. facts and figures, creates a brand reputation of one where we care about our customers, employees and other stakeholders
✅ To win in anything we do, Sherpa don’t lead from afar but rather climb the mountain right alongside their teams. Similarly, to win trust and respect with anyone, we cannot ask someone else to jump through a fire unless we are willing to do it too.
💡 Unlike a bull, humans are fully equipped with psychological privileges such as hindsight, foresight, and other mental processes that fit into the category.
So with the ability to plan ahead and learn from past mistakes, how does one possibly avoid being deceived by a waving red flag?
✅ Firstly, obstacles are always bound to arise regardless of our level on the food chain. How we deal with them is what counts…
✅ The next time we freak out because someone (or something) has found the golden ticket to our last nerve, STOP and THINK about the outcome for a second.
✅ Remember, arousing others is easy — IF we don’t care what kind of action we inspire❗️ If we wish to create a positive response in others, we do so by example and through the art of gentle persuasion, not by daring them to attack.
✅ A raging bull eagerly charging forth into a meaningless death over a game that was designed to destroy him is pointless. Is that the type of situation we want❓

💡 As entrepreneurs, how we respond to stress has a big impact on our physical and emotional wellbeing. Stress is almost always an initiating factor in any crisis…
In many cases, especially early on in my entrepreneurial journey, I came across feeling that I was fighting fires consistently… until I realised the following:
✅ The decision we make shapes a leader’s week. Every decision we make is an opportunity to choose whether we own up and tackle our challenges, or allow our challenges to tackle us❓ The point is to choose well.
✅ There are NO guarantees in life, except that everyone faces struggles. This is how we learn (and grow as individuals in life and business).
✅ Sometimes, we let our fears get the better of us. And it often affects our performance and outputs as our psychological aspects in our brain i.e. our mindset is not programmed to look into the future, but lives in the past.
✅ Remember, it is alright to have fears, but there is also a future ahead of us – so what we do about our story defines how we prime ourselves mentally and strategically to be successful in life.
