Are you a leader worth following?
PEOPLE ARE HUNGRY FOR A NEW KIND OF LEADER
They want leaders on purpose.
A leader who operates from a tether to something deeper than the thoughts inside your head.
They want leaders with integrity.
A leader who operates as integrity… integrity of commitment, integrity of values and integrity of the heart.
They want leaders who are trustable.
A leader they can trust with their deeper desires and challenges… way more than just the ‘work stuff.’
They want leaders with range.
A leader who will take a bold stand in one moment and then bring infinite compassion in the next.
They want leaders who are sovereign.
Leaders who remain open to possibility while having the courage to chart their own path.

This takes practice, commitment and a willingness to be uncomfortable. All the things I will ask you to do in our work together.
Can you meet this new leadership paradigm, or will it leave you behind?
Why You Should Care
If you want people to really connect to your mission, they have to connect to you.
They have to trust you.
They have to be willing to spend their effort and emotional labour on your cause. After all, It’s through your way of being, your depth, your presence, not your thoughts, that people decide if you’re worth putting their hearts into.
This is about way more than a theory. It’s about leadership as a distinguishing feature… for your life, for your organization, for the world.
There are a lot of people out there who will work for you while quietly putting their discretionary effort into another cause, another mission, a bigger vision, a better leader….
