Discovering Your Leadership Style


The 3H Model is a simple yet powerful mental model that helps people think, feel, and execute better. 

It is based on the three essential elements of effective leadership: head (thinking), heart (feeling), and hands (executing). 

 

The head first leader is all about logic and reason. They make decisions based on what makes the most sense and they are always looking for ways to improve. 

 

The heart first leader is all about emotion and connection. They make decisions based on how they feel and they always try to build strong relationships. 

 

The hands first leader is all about action and results. They make decisions based on what will get the job done and they are always looking for ways to be more efficient.

 

The model asks you to consider which of the three elements is most important to you as a leader. 

 

Are you a heads first leader who values intellectual rigor and strategic thinking? 

 

A heart first leader who is driven by emotions and compassion? 

 

Or a hands first leader who is all about taking action and getting results? 

 

There is no right or wrong answer, but understanding which element is most important to you can help you be a more effective leader. 

 

This model helps people to think about their own leadership style and how they can improve upon it.

Theory of Excellence

Arete is the theory of excellence in all things - it's what you do when your nature tells you to strive for beauty and goodness in all things. It can be summarized by two words: striving, or good-doing; this virtue is also known as "excellence" or "Ihsan". Philosopher Ghazali once wrote, "The best of all the things that humans can achieve is simply being beautiful."  To do beautiful things is the meaning of Ihsan. The origin comes from 'husn' or beauty. It means doing things with great skill, beauty, and elegance. The philosopher Aristotle once wrote that we should strive for excellence in all things.  Aristotle says that eudaimonia or happiness results when we live our lives using virtueful behavior - which includes doing good but also avoiding what's not good. It’s about living well by choice rather than chance alone- it's not just a matter of happening upon happiness but creating an environment where one can flourish into their full
