UAE. Leaders across all walks of life and business must take responsibility for their own learning development, according to one of the region’s leading learning consultants, Carol Talbot.

Talbot urged leaders to take responsibility for self-development in order to come through stronger in today's shifting marketplace. She suggested that in this age of technology, leadership success isn’t necessarily based on how brilliant you are or how high your IQ is, but it is about how you lead.

“The demands on leaders to maintain the competitive edge for their organisations, their products and themselves are greater and more complex than ever.

“But the good news is that research shows that today’s winners are leaders who can think outside the box, create and deliver a vision for themselves and, most importantly, influence others.”

She said that leaders must be inquisitive to discover what is really going on inside if they want to dramatically improve focus, personal power and results.

“To get a head start, you must get inside your own head! It is vital to learn about your own patterns and programmes, and how you can change to enhance flexibility, choice and control across all aspects of life.

“Change is a door that can only be opened from the inside. Change your mind, maintain that change and give yourself a head start,” she said.

Talbot is considered by some to be the region’s leading Master NLP Expert having worked with more than 20,000 people across multiple sectors in her twenty year career. 

She said that NLP provides the tools and techniques that can influence and transform performance, and has had a profound impact on the field of personal development since its own development, nearly twenty-five years ago.  

“NLP is used by leaders, management and top businesses to manage and motivate responsibility for results, planning and control. It also provides techniques for setting business goals, accelerates learning and encourages a flexible approach to problem solving.

“Indeed, NLP is a highly effective methodology based on the belief that all behaviour has a structure that can be modelled, learned and changed,” Talbot concluded.

Note: Carol Talbot’s first book, “Hitting the Wall…..and breaking through” (published in 2007) shows how to tap into creativity to find new ways forward and deal with life, effectively - available on Amazon
