Energy Leadership – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

Though we missed Lawrence Henderson as co-host during this month’s Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership event, I would like to extend my sincerest appreciation to Phillip Williams for accepting our invitation to be his fill-in. We had a very informative and insightful event, learning so much about Energy Leadership, its applications, its tools, its framework, the related disciplines, as well as how we can apply Energy Leadership in our everyday lives and our coaching practices.

Energy Leadership is a methodology and certification offered by iPEC, and we are in the process of bringing in some iPEC representatives to answer any further questions about their programs after Kimberlie Gridley, our guest panelist and multi-certified coach, consultant, and environmental advocate, sung the praises of the iPEC organization and its programs.

Join C3 to watch the full replay!  You won’t want to miss it.

We discussed:

  • What is energy leadership?
  • What are the 7 levels of energy?
  • Of all the levels, which creates the most resistance to conscious change?
  • What are the 2 types of energy?
  • What are the influencers of energy?
  • What are the disciplines of energy leadership?
  • What applications does energy leadership have to Human Resources?
  • How does energy leadership relate to environmental advocacy?
  • What are some common meeting mistakes that fail to set an engaged and productive energetic tone?
  • What is the distinction between energy leadership and the Energy Leadership Index (ELI) assessment?
  • How is the ELI assessment distinct from the other assessments used in leadership and talent management?
  • How does the ELI help you recognize how much stress is impacting how are you reacting and responding so that you can recover your energy faster?
  • What are the aspects integrated within iPEC’s energy leadership coaching methodology?
  • How does taking stock of what gives you energy help to better utilize the concepts of energy leadership?
  • How does energy self-awareness help you gain and exercise more confidence in your role as a leader?
  • How can it help you have more transformative conversations?
  • How can self-awareness of energy impact hard conversations, including negotiations?
  • What are the five choices that you can make related to leadership dynamics within core energy dynamics?
  • Do trust and energy leadership intersect?
  • After becoming aware of the need for a shift in consciousness in every aspect of your way of life, where do you start?

Improving Access to Resources and Opportunity – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

I’m going to recommend something I haven’t before – even if you attended live, I recommend that you watch the replay of this month’s Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership – Improving Access to Resources and Opportunity. The replay, as usual, is posted in our C3 Community on LinkedIn, so if you’re not there, request membership today.

About 20 minutes into the event, and 15 major insights later, I realized what an opportunity it was to be able to listen with greater presence to what was shared. Some points were just begging to be reinforced with another listen, while other major insights were so surrounded by other major insights that I missed them during the live event.

C3 members and this month’s panelists, Dominique “D” Ross, Personal and Professional Development champion and Sharon Clinton, Deputy Executive Director and change-maker for the City of Philadelphia, shared critical perspectives on how to improve access to resources and opportunity whether you are a leader in charge of assessing and executing greater access for your teams and communities or whether you are an individual with access challenges and obstacles of your own.

Here is what we discussed:
  • Why is a change is necessary for today’s time?
  • What is the distinction between equality and equity?
  • What are the three major components to improving your own access to opportunity?
  • If you don’t have a mentor, where can you find one?
  • What is the danger of adults projecting their baggage (limits) onto youth?
  • What’s wrong with conventional ideas about providing equity today?
  • Do you give people something additional to overcome the barriers, or do you remove the barriers?
  • What does it take to understand the meaning of access to opportunity?
  • How does the Horatio Alger DEI exercise teach people about equity and privilege?
  • How do we gain an understanding of how far an individual has to go to achieve equitable opportunity and at what time?
  • How can you determine how to maximize ROI on the investment in providing equitable opportunity?
  • How can you manage the multitude of valid experiences and do something productive with the collective brain dump of ideas while still giving people an equitable contribution?
  • How do you decide what kind of effort are you trying to make and what will be sustainable based on capacity?
  • How do you bucket the ideas and what model is best to evaluate the ideas?
  • What is the best tool to assess your teams to provide equitable opportunity?
  • What is the best mindset when you face challenges and obstacles in elevating your own access to opportunity?
  • What are the personal and systemic challenges our panelists had to overcome to achieve their level of career achievement?
  • How can you synthesize the plethora of advice you may receive in your quest to elevate our opportunity?
  • How can you use what you know about yourself to overcome challenges that pose a threat to your success?
  • In the midst of all of the moving pieces necessary to create a more equitable world, where do you start?
  • After starting, what was the next step our panelists gave themselves permission to take?
  • When you have to pivot and start from scratch, you may be losing, but what are you gaining?
  • How can you get to a point of mastery in elevating your own opportunity?

I’m going to go ahead and answer that last one without you having to watch the replay, though I still encourage you to: Gain mastery by using the C3 Community as a place to practice! Take your ideas, find a co-creator in the group, and take Sharon’s advice and get STARTED!  How’s today?

Guest Post: Increasing Access to Opportunity

This week’s post is written for you by C3 community member, Isabelle Dominique “D” Ross, as an invitation to join us tomorrow, April 1st at 1:00 p.m. ET, for our discussion on Increasing Access to Opportunity. Dominique will be a guest panelist during tomorrow’s event, along with Sharon R. Clinton, Deputy Executive Director at the City of Philadelphia. Please be sure to join the C3 Community to join the discussion tomorrow and connect with the guest panelists and members.

****************************

I’m looking forward to the upcoming “Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership” event, which is facilitated by Coaches Karen Huller and Lawrence Henderson, because this month’s panel will be discussing a topic that I’m deeply invested in and passionate about— “Increasing Access to Opportunity.” Friends and even connections who know me well can attest that this is a topic I will readily discuss at length.

Consider these questions:

  • How many of the organization’s lower-level and mid-level supervisors and managers can competently explain their tuition assistance or education and certification reimbursement programs, particularly if they’ve never accessed those programs themselves?
  • Do the organization’s team members understand the Employee Stock Purchase Plan or the 401K’s investment options? What about Employee Assistance Programs? What do those entail?
  • Why would an employee opt to access these benefits or maximize these opportunities?

Why is this topic so meaningful to me? I’ll share just a few snippets from my own journey in accessing opportunities.I was born overseas and I had a very “atypical” upbringing, so when I finally came to live in the US at the age of 19, I’d only formally completed a sixth-grade education. I quickly realized that my scholastic background severely limited my potential career options, so within several months of arriving in the US, I took and passed the General Education Development (GED) test and joined the Air Force.

In 1998, following my first couple of military assignments, I finally mustered the courage to register for my first college course with the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), using my military tuition assistance benefits. I was an active-duty military member, which meant I was already working full-time, and in my mid-twenties when I got started, so I was a “non-traditional student.” I knew I was coming from behind academically, and I’d have a long, long way to go to “catch up.” Because I was uncertain about my ability to succeed in taking college-level classes, I took just one speech class that the first semester, so I was excited to earn my first “A” grade in the course. The next year, I decided I could handle two classes at once, and the following year, three at a time. Due to my deficient formal educational background, especially in math and science subjects, I was required to take both “Elementary Algebra” and “Intermediate Algebra” before I could even qualify to complete “College Algebra” and satisfy the Basic College-Level Skills requirement for my undergraduate degree (I later learned during my graduate studies that needing to pay for and take remedial courses that “don’t count” can be a significant factor in why some individuals don’t complete their college studies, but I was fortunate to have tuition assistance benefits that paid for the majority of my undergraduate studies).

With my confidence buoyed after a few successful semesters, I’d set a new, more ambitious goal: I decided to finish my degree and apply for a commissioning program to become an Air Force Officer. However, since I’d merely taken one class that first semester of 1998, and then had only completed two classes per semester during the fall of 1999 and the spring of 2000, I knew I needed to get creative and find alternate ways to accelerate my studies if I was going to have any chance at completing my bachelor’s degree during the rest of my time in Alaska. To accomplish this, I became an avid researcher of the academic catalogs and the policies and processes within the university’s programs. By the time I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Russian Language from UAA in the Spring of 2003, I’d not only amassed 88 credits through the university, but I’d also earned eight additional natural science credits through academic petitions, and 52 credits through the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) testing and the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), which allowed me to apply for the commissioning program the following year.

Throughout my undergraduate studies, I developed and honed invaluable skills in researching, identifying, and demystifying academic and organizational requirements, policies and processes, that I’ve since applied to my subsequent graduate studies, pursuing and earning the Project Management Professional (PMP) and Professional in Human Resources (PHR) credentials, and in accessing other, sometimes obscure, organizational professional development and total rewards programs. The best part in all of this though is that I’ve been able to use these capabilities to guide and mentor others in doing the same.

My culminating assignment in the Air Force was as Instructor of English, Study Skills, and Honors, an Academic Advisor, and Dean’s Executive Assistant at the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School, where the mission is, “to motivate, prepare, and evaluate selected candidates in an academic, military, moral, and physical environment, to perform successfully and enhance diversity at the Air Force Academy.” Nearly 20 years before, I’d begun my Air Force journey with a sixth-grade education and a GED, and I was able to close out my time, serving others who came from similar backgrounds who wouldn’t have otherwise had access to those opportunities—they were prior-enlisted service members, first-generation college students, English Language Learners, etc.

Many years ago, during my time at UAA, I purchased a bookmark that featured a quote from Epictetus: “Only the educated are free.” That maxim became my mantra and the impetus for my educational and professional pursuits over the years. When I think about what it means to be “educated,” I see it as any learning event, program, or experience, whether it’s a formal higher education program or otherwise, that can propel an individual to that “next level,” enhancing their quality of life and their overall sense of well-being, not only for themselves but also their family members.

Being “free” means having options and choices. Discovering, accessing, and maximizing opportunities transformed my life, and there is no greater reward for me personally than being a conduit who helps another individual access an opportunity that leads to greater freedom in even just one aspect of their life.

Leading With Vulnerability – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

Vulnerability in leadership proved to be a very fruitful topic, and I thank our C3 community for selecting it as our March Answer the Call to Conscious Leader event topic. Senior Human Resources Leader, Vince Blando, and The Believe Coach, Nick Dillon, offered us invaluable insight from their personal experience as leaders who model vulnerability. If you didn’t make it live, catch the replay by joining the C3 community.

Here are the questions we answered in our hour-long discussion:

  • How can you create other leaders who model vulnerability?
  • How can you be a true vulnerable leader?
  • Can you really be open to every opportunity without being open and vulnerable yourself?
  • What does being vulnerable really require of leaders?
  • What does vulnerability feel like when you don’t possess those qualities?
  • How did our panelists develop those qualities?
  • Why do you have to be willing to be vulnerable?
  • What happens when a leader holds back?
  • Are people born leaders?
  • When does being vulnerable serve a leader well and when doesn’t it?

  • What is it about being a vulnerable leader that enables your team to show up as their best selves?
  • What is the only way to be effective as a leader these days?
  • What are perceptions of vulnerability that are now very outdated and need to go?
  • What happens when you are a vulnerable performer working for a leader who does not model vulnerability?
  • What happens if you grow weary of being available to your team members?
  • Is it appropriate to show your team members that you feel their pain or should you detach?
  • How has compartmentalizing pain and trauma been working?
  • How have our panelists navigated modeling and normalizing vulnerability in the workplace?
  • Why is now the time for us to go from aspirational to executable in being whole at work?
  • How do we gain traction in the movement to normalize vulnerability and empathy?
  • What are the consequences of not enabling empathy in the workplace?
  • What are the hard business reasons companies need to go in this direction?
  • What is the only true way to attain 360˚ leadership and be effective?
  • Do people leave jobs or leaders?
  • What happens when people practice the new brand of leadership in traditional business environments?
  • Where can a leader start introducing vulnerability in traditional business environments?
  • Where do EAPs fall short and how does a leader fill that gap?
  • How has the lack of financial stability spurred a greater need for vulnerability in leadership?
  • When your past has mistakes, what is the mindset to move forward from that as a vulnerable leader?
  • What does the military teach around leadership and does it conflict or align with being a vulnerable leader?
  • What is a major mistake that leaders make after having success in leadership that inhibits vulnerability?
  • What is “contextual empathy”?
  • What does a leader have to do to maintain psychological safety to continually nurture vulnerability?
  • What are the landmines associated with being a vulnerable leader?

15 Ways to Leverage the C3 Community to Accelerate Consciousness and Your Career

 

In 6 months, Lawrence and I grew the C3: Corporate Consciousness Co-op Community to over 100 people, and we’re still growing.

This group’s vision was to put together leaders who have individually created their own ripples to elevate corporations’ consciousness and recognize that by working together, these ripples become larger, faster, and more powerful waves of transformation.

It’s for those who share a sense of urgency about how quickly we as a planet need to outpace technology, climate change, and greed before we destroy ourselves. 2020 was the largest global challenge we’ve experienced in our lifetime, but there is every reason to believe that other, perhaps greater, challenges lie ahead. We need leaders willing to sacrifice popularity and security for effectiveness in creating change.

The C3 community is not for wish-makers but action-takers. We are in it for the mutual value we are creating. Not only do we get to go further and faster together, but we also get to promote our own initiatives to garner more significant support. We get to support our counterparts’ professional endeavors to help them get further on their journey, as well.

Our goal for 2021 is to expand this group while maintaining quality, which we will measure by engagement. We don’t just want any members who request to join. We want those who are willing to participate and willing to add value.

Once you are in the community, you’ll be invited to engage in a few different ways. We’ll also use these guidelines to assess our engagement and growth success.

Introduce yourself. Reintroduce yourself.

Once your membership is approved, you will be welcomed, tagged, and asked to let the community know what topics and practices related to conscious leadership that you like to speak on. When you do this, your topics are truncated down to 30 characters and are added to our topics poll. This past month we had so many topics we split them into 3 polls and down to a final poll. Topics that have votes (or relevance/timeliness in their favor) are carried over to the next month, but they won’t always, especially as we expand.

If you were an original member, you might have only introduced yourself to a few people, whereas now there are over 100! So hop back on and reintroduce yourself! You may have also thought about other niche topics you want to speak on. Go ahead and share!

We aren’t threatening to delete anyone right now, but because of our engagement goals and our commitment to filling this community with co-creating action-takers, we may eventually do some house cleaning. Don’t just be a passive observer. Stay active and add value!

Read other people’s introductions

None of us have reached complete conscious leadership enlightenment, yet we all have valuable expertise. Someone right here in the community may be an expert in something that you are struggling with right now. As long as we maintain the group’s quality by ensuring that members are all committed to the same thing, co-creation, expect a warm reception to an invitation to exchange expertise. Follow up when you receive such an invitation, as well.

Vote in event topic polls

Vote for yourself or vote for someone else. Just vote! The point of voting is to ensure that our content co-creation is what you desire, even demand, based on what challenges are relevant to you in your conscious leadership journey. On the other hand, say you really want to hear about a topic, but you know you won’t be available on the first Thursday of the month at 1 PM ET, vote for another topic.

Did you refer someone into C3 because you knew that the community would add value to them and vice versa? Vote for them! Remember that a vote for a topic is also a vote for a member.

Spread the word

As I’ve said, we are not interested in growth alone. We do not want to dilute our community with people who are not practicing and promoting conscious leadership. We don’t want people who are more interested in serving their own brand interests than contributing to the movement.

If you know someone who sees issues in the corporate world that we cannot continue to facilitate, wants to serve better and is willing to reach their hand out, they are who we want in this community! We want to combine our expertise and knowledge, and help bring new people into the movement to change the way we work in the corporate world! Send them this link: http://bit.ly/LI_C3

Attend the events and comment/ask questions

Lawrence knows what he’s doing on Streamyard! He makes the radio operator in me proud, watching him keep his thumb on the conversation while also posting relevant links and tracking the comments. All while highlighting the nuggets of wisdom and thought-provoking questions of our audience. We would love to see expansion in participation and conversation-starting questions during these events!

Several of our panelists started as people who were engaging in the events! Visibility is part of the value we intend to provide to you, your experience, and your expertise. We create a safe space for people to share a different perspective. We believe that this is completely necessary if we are to achieve consciousness in the workplace.

Watch the replays

Each month, I list the questions we answered or even questions that beg for more answers. If you go down that list and find anything curious, go back and check it out! Let’s keep the conversation going in the comments. Share your thoughts and reflections. Share your tips!

Share the event summaries

The event summaries are meant to entice anyone in C3 who didn’t attend to watch. These summaries are also shared across social media to drive like-minded professionals to the group. Share it either individually to people who would appreciate the insights or publicly on your own social media pages (with relevant audiences).

Engage with us on Clubhouse and Twitter

Lawrence and I are everywhere, but there are a few places where we include the flow of our daily lives. We have collectively and individually created some ancillary outreach to continue finding new conscious co-creators for our community.

Every other Tuesday at 1:15, Lawrence (@bossllab) and I (@ripplemaker) jump off our telesummit strategy call and into a Clubhouse room. We talk about the tenets of conscious leadership and crowdsource ideas for keynotes and breakouts. If you are on this platform, follow us both and put our next event, March 9th, on your calendar. We’re talking about psychological safety and whatever else seems important to discuss.

This Wednesday at 11 AM ET, I’m re-starting Twitter Chats, at least experimentally. I’d like to see what the Twitterverse has to say about conscious leadership. Find the chat by searching #ConsciousLeaderChat just before 11 AM. You can also follow me @EpicCareering and engage from my profile tweet.

Share relevant articles/blogs – even your own – just ask a thoughtful question

The problem with many of the other groups for practitioners I am in is that it becomes a blog dumping ground. Everyone shares their blog, and no one engages. I mean, post after post with no engagement, not even likes!

For this reason, many group managers have prohibited promoting external links at all.

We are pro-promotion, which is rare. And, we get where these group managers are coming from, as well. When you share a post or article, start a discussion or ask a question, be sure to tag people with relevant experience and ask them to share their opinions or experiences.

Invite other members to connect

Connecting obviously makes it easier to co-create. As an OG LinkedIn trainer, I encourage you to add a note and explain your intentions. Mention the C3 community. If we manage this community right, you will find warm receptions to these invitations.

Promote your event

Do you know of other groups or organizations’ conscious leadership events? Let us know! Knowledge-share is yet another critical value of this community.

Attend someone’s event

When you see an event posted, and you have the time available, go. Engage. Let people know what we’re doing here. Bring a few great people back with you, especially insightful speakers. Talk up the C3 member who is hosting or speaking. Share with us a summary of the event. Give those of us who couldn’t attend an overview of what we missed and pieces of value!

Co-create a new event

We don’t have a monopoly on events in C3. If another topic is in demand, and you are an expert in that topic, create a new event. Even better, consider co-creating that event with some of the people who also voted for it. You can host it and invite others to be panelists, or you can ask someone else to host so that you can be a panelist and bring in other panelists – or not. We have found that we have tremendously enjoyable and valuable banter with 4 perspectives contributing, but that’s not a rule.

Give us more ideas

Most other LinkedIn groups that I am in are not very active. On the other hand, many of the Facebook groups I am in are very active, yet the group I created (Raising Corporate Consciousness) had nearly no engagement over several months. If you see other groups doing things to nurture co-creation, engagement, and value, please let us know about it.

If you see a post or event outside the group you feel is worth mimicking, post it yourself. We are not here to hog the spotlight; quite the opposite. We are here to elevate YOU!

Volunteer

With more ideas, we’ll need more volunteers to help support execution. With more volunteers, we can do more events and highlight more of our members. There are already ideas on the table for which we could use man/woman power, for instance – a structured mentor program.

There are gaps in our ability to engage on all platforms to promote the C3 community and our value. We are a part of many other platforms such as Slack, Quora, and Reddit. If you are savvy with any of these platforms, let us know. We can talk about how you can leverage the time you are already spending to add value to the community while also using the community to add value to your career and conscious leadership momentum.

Future Vision:

As of now, there is no monetization for this group. In fact, Lawrence and I engage our assistants’ help to help us manage the administration and promotion of this group, so it’s operating at a cost. This means we do not have a budget to pay for speakers.

However, stay tuned for an announcement about a June telesummit. This will be an event born from the C3 community that illuminates the thought-leadership, expertise, and value of its members.

C3 won’t be the best-kept secret forever, and the odds of having your topic chosen as our monthly topic will go down as membership goes up.

Take advantage of being a charter member of this group. Consider yourself at the forefront of this wave of conscious corporate change we are co-creating.

Authentic Leadership – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

During yesterday’s Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership event, Carl Shawn Watkins and Isabelle Dominique “D” Ross helped us delve into Authentic Leadership – the risks, rewards, landmines, and sticky situations that leaders can find themselves in, especially today.

In yet another value-packed hour, we explored all of the following, and more:

  • What does the concept of Authentic Leadership conjure in terms of self and others?
  • How does being an authentic leader allow for people to bring their whole selves to work?
  • What are the key qualities of being an authentic leader?
  • How does being an authentic leader nurture an environment that facilitates better problem-solving?
  • When you are bringing in new talent, and people are coming from various backgrounds with potential unawareness about moral standards?
  • How can keeping it real go wrong in leadership?
  • Keeping it real is so subjective, how can you reconcile that as a leader?
  • While leaders have subjective views about authenticity, how do you use yourself as a model to set moral expectations?
  • How do you own mistakes even amidst judgment?
  • What is the key ingredient in honoring self and honoring others as leaders?
  • How do you productively respond to a failure of your team to reach the moral bar while maintaining authenticity?
  • Does Cancel Culture inhibit or facilitate authentic leadership and at what point do we say leaders are no longer allowed to continue as leaders?
  • How do you determine a violation is unrecoverable?
  • How can leaders prevent crossing that line?
  • Do we want to create a climate in which we allow unconscious beliefs and thinking are free to emerge so that we can sort that out of leadership or at least address it?
  • How do you maintain your moral code in the midst of crisis when survival mode kicks in?
  • Which is better – working for a great boss in a smelly bathroom or a bad boss in a beautiful office?
  • How can we move through this cancel culture together to come to an agreement about what is moral?
  • What is the hardest part of authentic leadership?
  • What is the distinction between authentic leadership and authentic leadership under the umbrella of conscious leadership?
  • How do you come to recognize when you are justifying self-preservation over authenticity?
  • What is the right combination of moral standards, psychological safety, and accountability to ensure that you are in the learning zone versus in crisis mode?
  • How do you restore your team post-crisis?
  • What has science and practical experience prove is necessary for leaders to optimize mindset?
  • How are leaders preparing their team members for capacity expansion and growth?
  • Do we avoid letting opposite beliefs cause drama and division, while still fostering an environment where people feel free to bring their whole selves to work?
  • Is there a conflict between being authentic and bringing your whole self to work?

Empowered Goals – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

Last week we had another groundbreaking Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership event with Kenston Henderson, Sr. and Jennifer Wildgust as panelists to talk about Empowered Goals.

I, actually, didn’t develop goals, and you might have seen me mention what I did instead last week. By watching the replay of last week’s event, you will learn how you can apply the same neuroscience hack to re-engage with your goals.

You’ll also get the answers to these questions:

  • What is the distinction between empowered goals and plain goals, or other kinds of goals?
  • How can empowered goals be used in leadership to manage at an individual and team level?
  • Where do you start when helping your team develop empowered goals?
  • How does the first week of the year help you set up a successful year?

  • What is a critical component to staying motivated?
  • What are the reasons people fail to reach their goals, and how can the C3 group fill that void?
  • What are ingredients leaders can ensure their teams have to enjoy repeated success?
  • Where can a leader learn how to achieve huge goals?
  • What are the steps that need to be taken to maximize goal achievement?
  • What is the trick to developing empowered goals with your strong-willed “rebel” team members?
  • What is the trick to keeping your rebels accountable for their empowered goals?
  • How does the control-influence model come into play?
  • What are good questions to ask when reflecting on the previous year’s goals, especially after a year like 2020?
  • How can you use the unmet goals as fuel?
  • How do you allow yourself grace while not letting yourself off the hook?
  • How can you use your imagination to achieve your goals?
  • How can you mentally prepare yourself for possible hardships that can derail you?
  • What if your team members are not in a conducive emotional state when goal setting?
  • How can you help your team members process their emotions so that they can get into a conducive emotional and mental state to set empowered goals?
  • How can leaders guide their teams through building the habits that will support goal attainment?
  • How can you reinforce your team in achieving their empowered goals?
  • Why do we have to reframe failure?
  • No matter what happened, what do you have to do to continue crafting better goals?
  • What is the best metric for assessing goals?
  • What is the one thing that you think people need to know to feel empowered about moving forward?

Our panelist, Jennifer, said, “I’ve learned so much in just this little bit of time!”

That’s what these events are all about! It’s so powerful to spend this hour on the first Thursday of every month leveling each other up.

I’m so grateful for the members of this community and look forward to offering them a spotlight to contribute to this cooperative movement toward conscious leadership.

Leading Through Change – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

We all couldn’t believe that last week’s Answer The Call to Conscious Leadership event was the last of the year. I think we can all also agree that 2020 has felt like the longest year ever.

I’m calling 2020 “The Year of Perfect Hindsight”, and I truly believe that through the C3 community, with these events and other co-creation between members, we are doing the important work of discussing the common issues that are impacting innovation, productivity, and progress the most. Additionally, we are exploring how to level up our leadership skills so that we can resolve the most urgent issues and collectively move toward a better 2021 and beyond.

In this last event of the year, Tiffany Frasier, President-Elect for ACMP (Atlanta Change Management Professionals), joined us as a panelist to offer her expert insights into how to lead through change. The topic of this training was voted on by our very own C3 community.

Here’s what we discussed:

  • What does it mean to walk in your superpower?
  • What are we aiming toward?
  • What is change aiming to accomplish?
  • What is Gen Z contributing to the workforce now?
  • What is Gen Z contributing to the future of the workforce?
  • What does it mean to bring your whole self to work and when is that really going to be okay?
  • How do we reconcile the dichotomous agendas of change?
    • i.e. How can we allow for creative input to disrupt systems that aren’t working, while at the same time, making sure that creativity fits into the working systems that exist so that creativity makes a real difference?
  • How is political correctness working and how do we reconcile learning to treat people as they want to be treated while still feeling free to express ourselves so that we can bubble up conflicting belief systems to the surface?
  • How is compartmentalizing our various roles going and what is needed to be more sustainable?
  • What does it look like to be able to talk about anything with your team?
  • What do leaders need to embrace in order to level up in the ways that today and tomorrow demand?
  • What do leaders have to unlearn?
  • Do you even know who your whole/true self is? How do you find out?
  • Which leadership skill gap is sure to cause a mass exodus?
  • What do we need to learn about fear (ours and others) in order to optimize the good that can come from change?
  • What do you do when evolving means sacrificing relationships?
  • What is the 2021 motto to replace “model the way,” and why is that no longer valid?
  • What does it look like for leaders to really support each other through these volatile times?
  • Before you offer leadership programming, what do you have to allow and decide?
  • What is the distinction between functioning and moving forward and how do you move from one to the other?
  • How have we been measuring success that has been more harmful than helpful and how do we correct it?
  • What is the starting point of making change? (Hint: Tiffany says this is the best advice she has ever received.)
  • What do you do when you are juggling a lot of balls and some are sure to drop?
  • What happens when companies don’t invest in developing their leaders, and where does a company start developing its leaders?
  • What do you have to know before you can make decisions the right way?
  • How should we be thinking about selflessness and self-care in 2021?
  • What is the value of professional organizations?

I am also now referring to the C3 community as the public radio/television of LinkedIn Groups, because our content is directly community-driven. Perhaps the BEST thing about the group is that the content is also community-contributed!

So many of our members have been creating ripples in their own organizations and beyond. If you want to rock the boat, you need a big wave. If you want to flip the boat over, you need a huge wave. This is what we are working together toward.

If you are not yet in the C3 community and you are committed to co-creating a better world through conscious corporate transformation in 2021 and beyond, what are you waiting for?  Trust me – you’ll want to be around for the growth we are going to create as a community!

If you haven’t invited the other conscious leaders you admire to this community, what else can we offer to you in 2021 to support you in furthering the conscious leadership movement that would inspire you to invite ALL the leaders you admire?

We have a 2020 goal of 100 members, and we are SOOOOOO close. We only need 12 more members in the next 20 days to reach this goal. I challenge everyone to be that value creator for your leadership colleagues and invite them to this community.

Assessments – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

Conversational Intelligence – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

As usual, our topic for this month’s Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership event was voted on by our C3 community as something people wanted to know more about. One of our members, Phil Williams, actually mentioned it in his comments in last month’s event, and through that engagement, he was asked to be a panelist this month, which is really an ideal path we would like all of our members to take advantage of. I, then, used my sourcing skills to secure another expert, and I have to say I hit the jackpot in finding Gabriela Herrero, C-IQ Certified Conversational Alchemist.

This month, we shifted our platform to make it possible for people outside the C3 community to attend live and access the replay, though unless you were connected to Lawrence Henderson, you would find it hard to find that replay. We encourage you to invite other conscious leaders and aspiring leaders to request membership in the C3 community to watch the full event, which this month lasted about 40 minutes.

In that time, we covered:

  • The 3 levels of building trusting relationships
  • The 3 stages of elevating trust in conversations
  • The #1 step to enhancing conversational intelligence
  • Why conversational intelligence is a vital skill for conscious leaders
  • Why some leaders fail to communicate and how to overcome that challenge
  • What ho’oponopono is and how it relates to emotional and conversational intelligence
  • How to accelerate the path from self-awareness to being consistently conscious
  • The role of neuroscience in building conversational intelligence
  • Some of the hidden syndromes from which leaders often suffer subconsciously
  • How to ensure that you are being thoughtful in your conversations
  • What is needed for leaders to gain self-awareness
  • What conscious leadership is really about
  • Why a having a coach is the key to continual growth in conversational intelligence
  • How various cultures use language, build trust, and perceive feedback
  • What feed forward is and why it is a more palatable alternative to feedback
  • How co-creation becomes a source of renewal for leaders in a time when energy and time are extremely limited resources
  • What resilience is all about and why leaders need it
  • The importance of resilience and flexibility, and which comes first

This is not even an exhaustive list! As you can see, this hour that we co-create together provides tremendous value, and our C3 community continues to grow and increase in engagement.

We want to promote your intellectual value! We want your conscious leadership solutions to reach the people who need them!

If you haven’t already, please share your expertise with the community and suggest topics for which you could be a panelist. Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership topics are decided on by our community according to what are the most relevant and intriguing topics, which means that YOU could be our next panelist.

You can also be a host, so if you want to try your hand at that role, we want to offer you the chance to facilitate these amazing co-created conversations.
