Starfleet Leadership Academy - Leadership Through Star Trek

VOY: Message in a Bottle

Your mindset determines your thoughts, which then determine your actions. Just ask The Doctor!

3 months ago

On this episode, Jeff Akin reviews Star Trek Voyager, Message in a Bottle (Season 4, Episode 14). He will examine the leadership lessons from The Doctor.

Mindsets determine how you see the world around you. Your mindset directly influences your thoughts, and your thoughts determine your actions. The Doctor, as he works with the EMH Mark 2, gives us the opportunity to talk about 4 different mindsets:

  • Abundance vs Scarcity
  • Intentional vs Victim
  • Authentic vs Image
  • Unity vs Detached

In choosing positive and productive mindsets, you can, and will accomplish amazing things, just like the two Emergency Medical Holograms do.
