CONNECTING WITH ALL PEOPLE, SYNTHESIZING, AND USING DISCERNMENT IN MAKING CHOICES
Leadership requires trust, safety, and respect. A leader must value emotional intelligence and authenticity to be effective. Leaders are called to handle tough decisions with respect for all individuals, while still answering to a greater collective need. Leaders must remain integrated and connected within the communities they serve, and take appropriate time for self-care.
Leadership relates with Community, Nature, and Spirit through human humility. Spiritual Leadership recognizes and upholds the individual journey we are all on. The Spirit of Leadership finds courage to live a life from the heart, one focused on learning, growth, and intimacy with the world. In Community, a true leader allows others to lead as well. A Natural Leader allows Nature to lead with its brilliance.
I practice balanced leadership – walk the line between cutting and discerning, giving and receiving, emerging forward and stepping back to hold the space – by leading only as much as it is needed. I am deeply interested in collaborating with others and I try to lead only as much as a group needs to move forward because, like in nature, anything more is excess and takes power away from others.
