At our core, we aim to help individuals and organizations pause - exploring the macro view - to inform better on the ground action.
Our Mindful Leadership Model is the proven framework that connects EVERYTHING!
The truth is, this work isn't all that complex. Given the pace of change, real-world challenges and the need to pivot-on-demand, the real rub is in the ability to simply slow down, trust the process, and stay the course. Not to mention juggling the availability and attention span of internal resources to meet the need.
Yet you simply can't address organizational demands without a thriving support system. Our work uncovers real-world solutions, setting you up for success.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
Following hundreds of hours spent coaching and working with teams - and doing our own work - The Mindful Leadership Model emerged as a predictable, repeatable framework for helping shift toward leading from our highest self with confidence. The arc steps through a mental model that when practiced over time becomes habit:
- First, GET PRESENT: The simple act of 'hitting the pause' button has profound implications. Eliminating distractions, we can really be with the present moment, vs projecting the past or charging ahead to the future.
- Next, PAY ATTENTION: What's here right now that's really important vs perceived threats and assumptions? Noticing triggers, emotions and listening with curiosity, judgment-free allows us to hone in on the truth and what matters most.
- Now, CHECK YOUR INTENTION: What do I really want? What do others want or need? What is my core purpose/mission? How do my values inform? What's the impact I want to leave behind?
- Last, TAKE ACTION, fully awake, informed, and aligned, + STAY PRESENT to the experience, the outcomes, the learnings. What shifts when you slow down? What is challenging? How might you adjust for next time? The value of simple observation is most compelling.
Emotional and social intelligence theory combined with mindfulness practices are core to the process. When we establish capacity for self-awareness and self-management we are then able to participate more authentically, fully and boldly in relationship with others.
We bring the model and frameworks to every program we offer, whether a leadership development program, a team intervention, a strategic planning session or a desire for heightened personal performance.
