Leading Change Program Continues

Yesterday we had Leading Change session 6 of 15 sessions. The emotional intelligence work that the participants have been doing is starting to show results. Participants are reporting more energy and less fear. They are seeing changes in others around them as they let go and embrace their real power.
• Real power is about being able to transform results into a sustainable reality.
• The capacity to translate your intention into reality.
• Webster’s definition which I like; the ability to act or produce an effect. Real power is revealed by its absence of fear

Next Program starts July 24th. Applications due July 10th.

Leading Change Continues

Last session I could feel the sigh of relief as the participants in the program realized that all of us, especially leaders miss the mark. There is who we are and who we want to be.  

As we stop being so externally directed and become internally directed we start to notice a gap between who we are and who we want to be. On one level or another all of us are pretending as if that gap doesn’t exist (we ignore it) and deep down we then worry that we could be or think we are a fraud.  

Now, realizing this is great news. When we are willing to be aware of and monitor the gap, we gain access to the leadership state.  Accepting the truth about our hypocrisy helps us transform it. Integrity is the continuous process of alignment between calling and conduct.
