Change the World

If only because you can
Because it should give life, not destroy it:

Transform Your Organization

We create belief in truths that give rise to Excellence
Entering "The Fundamental State of Leadership"
(a.k.a. "LIFT")
LEARNING IN REAL TIME
When we actively and genuinely seek honest feedback people trust us more and tend to offer more accurate feedback. A cycle of learning and empowerment is created, allowing us to see things that people normally cannot see and to formulate transformational strategies.
DRIVEN BY PURPOSE AND RESULTS
When we clarify higher purpose and the results we want to create, we move toward possibilities that do not yet exist. We become more proactive, intentional, optimistic, invested, and persistent. Our impact on others becomes energizing.
SEEKING THE COLLECTIVE GOOD
When we put the collective good first, others reward us with their trust and respect. We form tighter, more sensitive bonds. Empathy increases, and cohesion follows. We create an enriched sense of community, and that helps us transcend the conflicts that are a necessary element in high-performing organizations.
DIRECTED BY CORE VALUES
When we stop merely complying with others’ expectations and conforming to the current culture, we become more confident and more authentic, and we behave differently. Some are attracted to our new behavior, others are offended by it. That’s not prohibitive, though: When we are true to our values, we are willing to initiate such conflict.
REFLECTION EXERCISE
Think back to a time when you were at your best as a leader. How well do the four paragraphs above describe what you personally experienced in that time?
