Year In Review – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

What a year. What a community!

Last Thursday, we welcomed back 18 C3 community members who stepped up in co-creation with us this past year to discuss various topics related to conscious leadership.

Our panelists filled us in on their year, what themes seemed most emergent, and what they see as areas of focus and growth for the future.

Join C3 and watch the replay to see what our panelists said about:

  • How the last year transformed how we build relationships, community, and corporate culture
  • What change are we keeping and what are we going back to
  • How the corporate landscape transformed, and how “the great resignation” threaten companies that try to go back to the way it was
  • What hasn’t changed, and what change is still left ahead to make
  • How can we leverage the momentum started, the waste we eliminated, and the space we created to tackle this change
  • What Nick Dillon meant when he said the focus that came out of the past year was “believing beyond what’s comfortable”?
  • What new opportunities, possibilities, gifts, blessings, and new purposes were created or emerged in the midst of the crises of 2020
  • How we can get more intersectional
  • How we take our shared experiences and share the responsibility of creating the world we want moving forward

Sharon Clinton said, “We have to continue to carry the torch that all are welcome at the table, and all voices have value.”

That’s what the C3 community was created to do! Make your voice count and join today.

A good group of new topics bubbled up for our future Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership events and ConCon 2021, which will be held virtually Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6th. Some of them include Unconscious Bias, Anti-fragility, Trauma Sensitivity, and Measuring Social Impact.

Join C3 and let us know what conscious leadership gaps you would like filled in the next year.

We invited our panelists to help us cover more of these topics and step further into co-creation by hosting additional monthly events. We have at least one new host. Please let us know if you, too, are willing to co-create additional monthly events, and, if you are interested in speaking at ConCon, fill out this application. Share it with speakers you know would add value to our community and invite them to C3.

At ConCon, we will be giving two awards, the Co-Creator Award, which goes to the panelist(s) of the Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership event with the most member votes, and the Conscious Leader Award. Nominate someone for the Conscious Leader Award that you feel walks the Conscious Leadership walk by exemplifying and offering:

  • Authenticity
  • Vulnerability
  • Psychological Safety
  • Awareness
  • Empathy
  • Accountability

Below was the final lineup of guests for our Year In Review. We are so thankful to have these amazing leaders come back to spend more time with us and to have these people in our community.

If you haven’t reached out to get to know these people and explore co-creating with them, I invite you to join the C3 community and do so, and maybe next year when we review, we will learn all about waves of conscious change you co-created.

Using Active Voice vs. Passive Voice – Answer The Call To Conscious Leadership

When Lindsey Ackerman, Geotechnical Project Manager, came into the C3 community, she introduced us to a change that she made in her communication style that helped level up her conscious leadership. As it turned out, the C3 community proved very curious about this change, using active voice instead of passive voice, and so it became the last topic of our 1st year of these events, and what an event it was. Lawrence and I were joined by Lindsey and Jay Hurt, COO at The Academy of Creative Coaching, who came to serve as our persuasive communications expert and co-panelist.

The usual topics came up, but so did some things we realize we need to spend more time talking about in the next year.

Check out the highlights of our event listed below and be sure to request to join the C3 community so that you can get the replay link.

  • What was the feedback that spurred Lindsey to make this change?
  • Can you be nice and be an effective leader?
  • How quickly did Lindsey realize better results and what were they?
  • Why is it important for women to adopt active voice?
  • What is a tool that you can use to help increase your self-awareness of when you are using passive language?
  • What are some words that you can eliminate and add to activate your voice?
  • What are the costs of using passive voice and not communicating well?
  • How does active voice most effectively facilitate the sales process?
  • What are the two different kinds of closing in sales, and how can both active and passive voices fit in?
  • What is the value and the detriment of selling to people’s pain and what works even better?
  • What skills are leaders going to need in this century and in the next century to be successful?
  • How do we sabotage ourselves and limit our leadership capabilities when we use passive voice with ourselves, and what happens when we start using active voice in our self-talk?
  • How do we get people to care about making these changes?
  • How do we build up our vulnerability muscle as we become better at using active voice?
  • What does the new leadership narrative look like?
  • What is reframing and how does that help leaders better leverage self-awareness? Plus, how did Jay use reframing to lead his team to #1?
  • How do you e-mail like a boss?

Lindsey was hesitant to present herself as an expert on the topic because this was something she learned about, applied, and realized success. And guess what – this was a perfect example of how powerful sharing your knowledge with our community can be. We learned so much from Jay and Lindsey’s anecdotal experience and Jay’s expertise.

As Lindsey said, we’re all a work in progress, and it’s all just practice. As Lawrence said, it’s all about the reps. Aim for progress, not perfection. Perfection is an illusion. What matters is – Are we showing up? Definitely show up. Here’s how!

Join the C3 community, introduce yourself, and please share with us something you’ve learned that has improved the way you show up.

Then, join us next month to commemorate the end of our conscious community’s 1st year with a year-in-review. What a year it’s been! And, find out what we have planned for the C3 community in the coming year – we have very exciting news!

Adventures ahead!

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.

  • 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?

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.

When You Finally See the Dark Side

When you are a confidant to people in bad job situations, you become privy to some pretty dark intelligence.

What do to with that?

Certainly, I don’t go public with it. If I am to remain a confidant, confidentiality is critical. Also, when I hear reports indicating a lack of conscious leadership in a company, I aim to help – not alienate – them.

I do keep a list, and I do index news and comments about unconscious companies and leaders.

So, what happens when a client, or a close contact, asks for help landing in companies I have “dark intelligence” about?

Well, it’s tricky, but I have adopted a policy and a protocol for making conscious decisions, meaning decisions in the highest good.

Some of my clients are coming to me to escape an unconscious company or boss because they feel stifled in their ability to lead consciously while succeeding in such an environment, and they want to make sure that their next opportunity is better aligned with their values and style. Since confidentiality goes both ways with my clients, I will tell them what I know and trust that they will use it only for the highest good.

Others want guidance in how to navigate their current environment and maximize their impact to leave it better than when they came. In this case, I provide them with questions to ask in interviews and in networking to qualify that the challenges that exist there are challenges they are going to confidently overcome to make the desired impact. The questions also ensure the existing challenges won’t be an obstacle to their impact or a career-killer, putting them into ethical predicaments that will force them to choose between becoming a whistleblower against their will or becoming complicit. I advise my clients only to go to this company if they are willing to be a whistleblower, which can have devastating effects when an industry is wrought with unconscious practices and leaders, and few conscious choices exist. However, should the need to become a whistleblower arise, they know I will be there to help them reinvent and redeem themselves so that they can move on to make their desired impact elsewhere.

Sometimes, it’s in the highest good that one of these companies hires my client, and sometimes it’s in the highest good that clients land where they can bring their whole selves to work and be uninhibited by unconscious conditions. If they are uncertain, as a coach I ask questions to help them come to their own conclusions and be at peace with their decision.

Over the years, especially earlier in my company, I found great joy and satisfaction in helping individual contributors breakthrough their corporate growth barriers and step into leadership. Unfortunately, the joy was diminished by reports of new insights they learned as they took on greater responsibility and had greater access to information, and had more involvement in strategic planning.

This was the point in my career that I started leaning further into conscious leadership coaching.

When dark intelligence about an unconscious company’s employment practices makes the news, certain comments, like, “The door is always right there. They can just work somewhere else,” seem super naïve, even ignorant. Coaches like me exist because decoding career campaigning isn’t everyone’s skill set, and we deserve to earn income for our skill set, so it takes someone with a budget to afford us. Many of the victims of these employers have been underpaid and overworked, resulting in additional challenges to hiring a professional like me.

There are not enough conscious companies for all of my clients, let alone the volume of talent out there reaching their limits with their current career situation.

Some will have to be the change they wish to see, and that will mean being trained as a conscious leader, and training other conscious leaders.

Either that, or you adapt. You learn to play the same political games and you become complicit in perpetuating a toxic, unconscious work environment.

Have you ever had a moment where you felt like you traded your values, maybe even your morals, for success in an unconscious company you once admired?

What did you decide?

What is your next move?

Ask yourself: What is in the highest good?

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?

  • 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?
