“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
~ John Quincy Adams (1825-1829); 6th US President
It’s time to prepare, employ and grow
When we appreciate the worlds, nuances, languages, systems, signatures, cultural norms and values of our colleagues, collaborators, constituents and friends, we’re better able to walk a mile in their shoes, deepen our connections and call each other forth. We must make time to know ourselves and one another if we want to lead well and optimize our circumstances.
Now is the time to prepare, employ and grow your organization and its leaders. In order to bring it together as a harmonious whole, it’s essential to tend to its unique parts and people.
We define 21st Century Leaders as individuals, in all parts of life, who are willing to:
(re)claim and own their power, build a healthy relationship with it, and use it well and in service of those they lead/support.
21st Century Leaders are committed to becoming
Whole People with Whole Power.
So what is Whole Power?
Saying YES to life and deeper connections, turning towards its complexities and depth, and being curious about who and what you might find when you do – your Whole Self.
At the core of power used well is choice and compassion.
“Becoming a leader is a process that begins with a decision, one that we get to live into every single day for a lifetime.
Self-awareness comes first and with intention.
Self-leadership comes over time and with practice.
Self-mastery happens as we choose to mature and become better versions of ourselves in service to others.
Each rests on a commitment to lifelong learning, on a desire to remain curious, grow, serve and evolve, and on our intention to be who we are at the core of our being, without apology or excuse.
It is how we stay relevant and become trusted advisors, servant leaders, sought after mentors and
respected elders later in life.”
