LEADERSHIP COACHING

Human leadership is the most influential force on the planet. Authentic leadership is the superpower! YOUR authentic leadership is urgently needed to solve the climate crisis, racism, poverty, and disease.

The Demand for Authentic Leadership

President John Kennedy had the ability to activate people by asking what they could do for the nation.  Mother Theresa inspired us all, by giving nourishment to the hearts of all people.  Martin Luther King Jr. words added a new magnitude to the way a society looks at itself. Greta Thunberg inspired a generation of young people to stand up and fight for what they believe in.

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 because of ‘who’ they were.

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 by being yourself.

Authentic leaders call others to committed action and are often referred to as natural leaders or great communicators.  But they were not born leaders or communicators the day they entered the world.  No, as leaders they were born the day that they decided to get in tune with themselves and with this self knowledge led and inspired people to action. Embarking on the journey to authenticity can begin a whole new meaning to the life of a leader.

To effectively reach, inspire people 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.

Authenticity has received a significant amount of attention as more and more people search for meaning and happiness, particularly in their work lives. How one chooses to try to live more authentically depends on their own perspective on authenticity.  Different people have different views about authenticity, and everyone feels very strongly about their own views. What is ‘authenticity’?  Is being authentic being completely honest and participating in the here-and-now, eg, an honest conversation with a friend, completely focused on cleaning out the garage, getting the next goal etc. I suggest it is much more.

Authenticity involves many other aspects, including, eg, being ‘centered’ within yourself and others, living in a completely integrated fashion with your values and principles, always feeling complete meaning or sense of purpose in your life, etc.  Many philosophers assert that if an individual is not living authentically in their lives, then they lose meaning and can fall into chronic anxiety, boredom and despair.

Developing Your Context to Lead

This is a stimulating, results-oriented coaching program that prepares you to take your next step as a leader. During the AL program, you will have the opportunity to look at leadership from different perspectives and make some choices to become even more effective.

Through exercises, mini lectures and discussions you can increase your understanding and use skills such as creating agreement, focusing on solutions, resolving conflict and working as part of a team.  You are invited to look at your self-limiting attitudes, habits and patterns, and to examine different points of view to find out if they are more effective for you. You expand your context to allow yourself to be, do and have more of what you want as a leader. You learn an amazing amount about people, which will serve you in personal and professional interactions with others.

In critical situations everyone one needs an impartial view. Most of us receive feedback from the world directly in the form of results, good and bad and then indirectly by the quality of our relationships. We can only do our best based on what we know, the feedback you receive will increase your learning about yourself. It is often hard to get perspective when one is in the middle of a situation.
