Lead Your Team Leadership

Leadership Lessons: Linda Lauren, Psychic Medium and Shop Owner

There's no one "right" way to lead a business. Today's leaders have a lot of wisdom to impart about managing the modern workforce, because each one approaches leadership in his or her own unique way. Every week, Business News Daily will share a leadership lesson from a successful business owner or executive.

  • The leader: Linda Lauren, fourth-generation psychic medium and owner/operator of Linda Lauren's Embracing the Universe
  • Time in current position: More than 40 years as a psychic; 10 years as a shop owner
  • Linda's philosophy: "We intuitively have the ability to ascertain the right answers. By tapping into that intuition, we can resolve the issues that come our way." (Click to tweet)

Lauren explains the experiences that helped form her personal leadership philosophy:

"As a psychic medium and color/energy expert, I am used to using my intuition to guide me. I was brought up to believe that we are born with the right answers to any situation. What we need to do as leaders is to explore that and practice honing our insight through various sources available to us.

"One of the key practices I introduce people to is faithful, regular meditation. It is the primary tool necessary to respond to life with reason, rather than react to life with emotion. Meditation helps us to create an awareness based on our intuitive responses. From there, I introduce other metaphysical tools, like writing in a journal, creating a vision board or collage of goals and opening up to calming music. In these ways, I am ultimately helping people to help themselves more effectively."
