Get to know me
In this video I share how I went on a quest to find what would transform the 20th century ineffective leadership models. I also reveal some key features that today's leaders need to succeed in the current, modern and unforgiving business landscape!
My quest to connect consciousness into the business world
In 2005, I foresaw emergent cultural changes were going to force fundamental and drastic changes to traditional leadership models. That vision manifested in 2020.
That vision drove me to prepare for this shift by identifying and defining new leadership mindsets, models and methods that were in line with a higher level of leadership consciousness I knew as going to be demanded by new generation of worker.
To achieve my goal, I sold my brick-and-mortar company and started my current consulting firm to devote more time to studying the field of consciousness. I wanted to add a deeper understanding of Consciousness to my traditional business based leadership skills.
I literally spent thousands of hours passionately studing, writing, and creating as I struggled to bridge the two worlds I inhabited: business leadership and Consciousness. As I did, I wondered if the business world would embrace the wisdom of Consciousness. Initially, even I wondered if those two worlds played by different rules. Then I had the realization.
There is only one set of rules; that is the reigning rules of Consciousness.
So, while people in the business world may not naturally embrace the world of Consciousness. The truth is businesses are driven by Consciousness. At the micro-level it is the Consciousness of their people. On the mega-level it is the universal Consciousness that drives the world in which we all exist.
Everything operates under the rules of true Consciousness.
This is where we are now: at the nexus of business and consciousness. Those who recognize and embrace this reality and who educate themselves in the ways of Conscious Leadership will maximize their impact in the new world that is unfolding in front of our very eyes.
Welcome to the new age of leadership. Welcome to the world of Conscious Leadership in Action.
For decades I traveled many paths in my quest to gain greater understanding of Consciousness and the powerful role it plays all aspects of life and specifically in business and leadership. I explored many Eastern, western and Native American teachings. I delved deeply into the study ‘energy’.
Along the way I became a Reiki master and energy healer. Then in 2020 I met the most powerful teacher of Consciousness, itself and I learned how Conscousness affects literally everything around us.
During my journey a powerful inflection point came in 2016 when I was called to use all of these tools because I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. As I lived that experience, I knew I was in the most powerful class on Consciousness, energy healing and personal growth in my life.
I decided to view the experience as a class to teach me about love, empathy and consciousness. As a result, what could have been a devasting period in my life became the most beautiful. I had been gifted with the greatest learning experience about life, myself and true leadership I ever could have imagine.
In this video I share what cancer taught me about myself, energies, consciousness and even conscious leadership.
Now my life’s goal is to share the lessons of my blended experiences with others who share my desire to not only expand their consciousness but who are committed to becoming Conscious Leaders in Action who’s goal it is to honor those who came before us; serve those in front of us and to respect those who must follow us.
