Do you have the courage to think about embracing the new leadership paradigm of ‘Leading So People Will Lead’? Do you have the courage to embrace something radically different? When my children were young and I took them on trips and couldn’t find our destination, they had learned not to ask ‘are we lost’ but rather to ask ‘are we having an adventure yet?’ As adults, they still ask me this question when I am driving, and when I say ‘yes’, I look out of the corner of my eye and see a big smile.
When you learn about Nourishing a Culture of Leadership with us, you are encouraged to question, experiment, play and explore with the ideas and concepts that are shared with you. We consider that you are on a learning adventure, that you are learning all of the time, and that you are curious. This combination puts you clearly in the picture of your learning, connecting more deeply to who you are, while taking in some information that is intended to be useful to you. In the end, it is you with your own deep connection to yourself and where the learning fits into ‘you’ that will take responsibility for applying the learning.
Anything to do with Leadership itself and with Nourishing a Culture of Leadership cannot succeed if it is not coming from a deeply rooted place in you. We refer to this deeply rooted place as Genuine Contact.
Surprisingly, being in genuine contact with self and thus with learning integration and application feels scary to a lot of people.
Maybe it is just the right time in your life to accept that learning a system that is designed by someone, and being expected to religiously follow it might be too limiting. Learning something, and being invited to make it yours in your own unique way, to expand on it, to be curious and to make adjustments might be something you are now ready for. It is scary because you venture into the unknown and because there might be a feeling that you might fail. However, think of the limitations you leave behind as you open up a path forward for yourself and your leadership to greater possibilities.
