“The art of communication is the language of leadership.” James Humes.
Welcome to “The Modern Alchemist”
Alchemy; the ancient Art and Science of transforming lead into gold, represents an ancient and richly colourful pathway, and a fresh perspective in today’s climate of leadership and communication chaos. Becoming a powerful communicator and leader is desired by those who wish to make a difference, whether in a conscious manner (through intentional education) or through the tumult of worldly experiences that finally leads to increased awareness.
“The Modern Alchemist” takes all the challenging leadership and communication issues facing today’s leaders – organizations large and small – through the art and science of alchemy, transforming them into imaginative, authentic solutions and cutting-edge communications.
It is said that Walt Disney could squeeze out the creativity from his artist’s minds after they themselves believed that the ideas had dried up. Walt Disney helped people go a step beyond to make fantasyland a real place, his real magic was creativity and communication. President John Kennedy had the ability to activate a nation by asking what they could do for the nation, his real magic was to touch the best in all who listened. Mother Theresa inspired us all, by giving nourishment to the hearts all people. Martin Luther King Jr. words transformed the way a society looks at itself.
These leaders and others have something in common. They had the ability to move people to greater achievements, to appeal to the highest motives in the individual and to help everyone feel involved. Their leadership skills are relevant to all of us, which are in roles where success depends on the ability to influence and motivate others to action.
Whether you call yourself a leader, a manager, a coach, a parent, an administrator, or president, your most important resource is your people. The most crucial element of success (in reaching your goal) is your ability to influence, inspire, motivate and encourage your people.
To effectively reach, inspire and persuade today, values-based communication and authenticity are essential. The employee and employer of today has unprecedented access to information and choices, they are different from any that preceded them, and they want it their way. To ignore these trends (the way they think and their high level of awareness and discernment) can spell disaster for today’s leader.
Coaching for me is a committed and personal experience, I am here to help you get the most from the experience and to assist you in your personal quest.
All the best Geoffrey.
