A Leader's Shadow: Module 1 - The Shadow and Projection

Entering a culture (family, national, religious, vocational) we are required to adapt. This means sorting our character into traits that will do well in the culture and those that need to be hidden. Because the expressed qualities are a source of pride, the suppressed parts are dualised as sources of shame. They reside in a denied, ignored, neglected part of the psyche called the shadow. A symptom of shadow is projection. When we deny a shameful trait, we delete how it affects our perception of reality.  One such filter is its attribution of our own denied qualities onto others.  This can cause fascination or repulsion with the object of our observation, depending on the nature of the denied trait.  The impact on relationships can be damaging. Owning our projections and integrating the shadow quality back into our personality has a profoundly positive impact on leadership.

Thank you for shopping with us. This module comes with a 45 minute video and a journal explaining all the theories.
