If we want to build a spirit respecting community and workplaces , the answers to these questions inevitably lead us to transform the role of the executive leader. We shift our thinking from focusing on the product, the task, or the tangible outcome to being in service of those who make the product, perform the task, or produce the tangible outcome.

We shift from being responsible for the production on one million widgets generatin...

On the path of Courage, leadership is seeing "things as you would have them be" and then have the courage to be the change you would create.

On the path of Courage, there is an instant in which the Heart Leader comes to know what is possible.

With spirit as guide, the leader believes all things are possible, and from spirit the leader knows that "if I can think it, it can happen"...

When our organizations choose to lead from the heart in the Path of Courage and build self-respecting communities/workplaces, there are also prices to pay as well as the rewards to reap.

We choose to:
* Give up being driven by events and accept being guided by our vision and values.
* Give up money today to invest in our guiding principles.
* Give up our negative beliefs in our people and accept our role in creating circumstances and o...

What is the Cost?
The ability to lead from the heart and live from spirit is the result of choosing to live consciously. Being committed to living consciously in a society that largely muddles through on autopilot isn't easy.

There is a price to pay for choosing to live consciously, and sometime it's a hefty price tag.
Our Wonder Child was born with spirit, and living from spirit is free... from birth before all the insulatin...

Fear is going to be there; if we are to grow and learn as individuals, as organisations, as communities, it is essential to accept its presence.

On the path of Courage, Heart Leaders consciously acknowledge fear as a warning sign for what is a caution, not a stop sign. When we are able to look at fear consciously, we can talk about whether our fear is rational. When fear is rational, we can exercise caution and prudence merited by ...

If we wait until something is absolutely safe, we do nothing. safety in decision making is only an illusion.

The safety that most organizations seek in rules can be accomplished more simply by accountability, accepting the organization's role in creating its problems - practicing prudence and good judgement that is achieved by organizational learning.

Why live by these rules anyway?

When we are being our fear we need crutches to lean on to ensure us we will survive and protect what we've come to believe must be protected. our rules enable a set of strategies which we use to psychologically delude ourselves into thinking we are secure.

Perfectionism, self-judgement, judgement of others, righteousness, cynicism and resentment are all fostered by our rules. They are so much of ...

Avoiding Fear creates what we Fear the Most. Many believe that all human behaviour is motivated either by fear or desire. As I've said previously, I believe that fear and desire are almost always related. With almost every fear, there is an implied desire.

Attached to virtually every desire there is an associated fear. I believe that until we name the associated fear and make peace with it, we never achieve what we desire in a s...

Making friends with the dark side. All that we have to accept about ourselves isn't just love and beauty. In each of us is a dark side. Fear, Righteousness, Judgement, Perfectionism, Resentment, Confusion, Regret, Blaming, Guilt, Cynicism, Worry, Control mania, Arrogance, Victim-hood, Greed...

Just as all the good qualities we see in others are a reflection of those positive qualities in us, all the things we dislike about other...

Love ourselves? Accept Ourselves? Be kind and peaceful with ourselves? Starting our spirituality with loving ourselves is difficult.

There we stand alone and naked with no one to blame or lean on. Until e love ourselves, we always depend on others to love us, to give us approval, and to give us positive feedback.. We are forever drawn from our spiritual centre by the desire to please others or by the fear of not pleasing them.

Peace is an essential part of our spirits. When we live and lead on the Path of Courage, we come to know a deep level of peace that pervades our whole being.

We may still be afraid, angry, frustrated, or irritated at at event of the day, but guiding us like a rudder is a deep sense of peace that tell us we are on the right track.

This peace is generated by a a spiritual connection made possible by self-awareness and conscious livin...

For most of us, going mindlessly through the day on autopilot is so habitual that it takes a lot of practice to being truly present.

Millions of hours are wasted each year in organizations with CYA (Covering Yous Ass). memos that rehash how we handled the past or aim to control the future. yet people regularly relate how their best management performances come when they are focused on being completely present in the present..

When we are not present and when we are not aware, we also loose connection. When we think about something we are going to do or something we should have dome differently, we rob ourselves of the connection that allows us to build trust, faith, cooperation and community.

When we don't address and resolve conflict in a healthy way that respects everyone involved, misplaced anger almost always results. As human beings, when we keep suppressing the emotions around unresolved conflict pressure builds; over time we become more and more volatile. Eventually a mere spark in the area of our resentment can set off a raging fire of anger.

When we want to truly resolve conflicts so that relationships impr...

When we connect deeply with one person or more on a deeply personal level our lives change forever. On first experiencing a deep connection I was made keenly aware on how superficial and empty most of my relationships were. I no longer wanted to live in a superficial world. I wanted deep intimate relationships, which differed from my old ways.

When we commit to creating meaningful relationships and to the learning that those relat...

If we are to be completely in a relationship, we have to be whole, aware individuals who know what we feel and what we wants well as what we think, and we have to truly want to be in community with others. We have to be full and complete with ourselves. We can't come into a relationship as people who depend on others to provide approval to make them feel whole.

When we come into relationships as whole individuals committed to a...

When we are in our brains and egos, we believe each of us is a discrete entity, separate from others with whom we live and work.

When we are in our spirits, we know we are intricately connected in a web of relationships that makes it impossible for us to take even a single action without affecting the entire connectedness.

Our relationships, our families, our companies, our communities, and our world are like a delicately balanced ...

I spend a considerable amount of time in organizations helping Leaders discover what they didn't know they knew. Including those things that they believed to be true that were false.

The conscious mind has the ability to process 7 pieces of information per minute. The unconscious mind can process 300,000 in the same time. Most of this vast library of information is carried in the unconscious, that part of the brain "we don&#...

We only know what we know - what we have been taught by books, by videos, by audios, by others and by our experiences. That is all we know. Or is it? Is it possible that we don't know what we believe we know? That we know what we don't know we know? Once I was sure I knew how to get ahead: get a good eduction, find a good company, work hard, do what I am told and be loyal. promotions will come, I will 'move up the ladde...
