Your Gut Check

[ The best way to tell if I am the right fit for you ]

 

My work is NOT for everyone, but it might be for you! I am a big believer in trusting your body’s wisdom. You will know if we are a right fit by seeing how you resonate with what I say below. If you don’t resonate, we just aren’t a good match and I wish you the best.

Who is a great fit for my work:

–> Leaders ready to make a difference

My work is about transformational leadership and transformational leadership changes the world. You can’t experience this type of transformation without an intrinsic desire to make a difference. My clients care deeply about others and the world. They see the change we need and are willing to do something about it.

–> Leaders willing to get honest with themselves

We all have blind spots. My clients are willing to get honest about their blind spots, their feelings, and their truth. They aren’t afraid to look in dark corners. Of course, the best part is that they don’t have to do it alone. This honesty extends to all parts of their lives: their work, relationships, family, feelings, behaviors, habits, and thoughts. My work is wholistic – you can’t separate your leadership from your life.

–> Leaders willing to do the deeper internal work

The first principle of my work is that personal development is the key to transformational and embodied leadership. My style of personal development is deep and powerful. Ideally, my clients already have some personal development experience and they love doing the internal work. My clients are here for deeper transformation!

–> Leaders who want both a joyful life & an impactful one

My work is not just about making an impact, it is about doing it from a joyfull life and a fulfilling purpose. Too many leaders have spent their leadership in personal burnout and caring for others more than than care for themselves. They sacrifice their joy for world change. Together, I help my clients lead from the inside out. They have to experience fulfillment and joy before they can focus on the change they want to make in the world.

–> Leaders ready to embrace their whole-body intelligence

Being embodied leaders means we have to embrace more than just our intellect. We have to embrace our body’s wisdom, our intuition and our emotional and spiritual nature. The world has rewarded intellect, but it is only a small set of tools in our toolbox. In the work that we do together, you will learn how to use your whole-body intelligence to become a better leader & a better human too.

Who is not a great fit for my work:

–> Leaders unwilling to be accountable or responsible

I can’t work with leaders who love to play the blame game. Whatever we are experiencing in our lives or work is related to us. That doesn’t mean that we aren’t dealing with real outside problems, but the first step to shifting things is to look at ourselves. I ask my clients to take a high level of responsibility for their world and their actions.

–> Leaders unwilling to look at their biases and their privilege

We ALL have biases and privilege, and the leaders that I work with are willing to own them. It is a constant learning experience and it requires a willingness to see ourselves in a new light. We have to embrace both our dark and our light. We have to be able to see where we have hurt others, disregarded them or minimized their worthiness. We have to be able to see where we have also done this to ourselves.

–> Leaders who believe leadership is about the carrot or the stick

Many, many leaders and leadership styles are based on the carrot or the stick. They motivate themselves or others through rewards or punishment. This is NOT transformational leadership, this is transactional leadership. I can’t work with leaders who want to continue to operate in this way.

–> Leaders wanting to change the world, but not themselves

When we are willing to work on ourselves & step into our full potential, we are in the right position to change the world. A lot of leaders want to change others and the world around them, but not really change anything about themselves. With my work you have to focus on yourself first.

–> Leaders who prioritize their ego over their humbleness

I have a very neutral outlook on ego. We need it to grow, but when it leads, it outlives its usefullness. Being humble, on the other hand, is the key to transformational leadership. When we recognize that we too are human, we can relate to others and the world in a more positive way. I work with leaders willing to let their humbleness lead.

Dealbreakers for Me:

Racists, sexists and those who uphold the frameworks that hold ANYONE back from being their full, glorious selves.

People who need to be manipulated or coerced into making a decision or investing in support. I refuse to pretend you are not wise & capable of making decisions for yourself.

People seeking shortcuts and wanting to hack their way through life. Transformation can not be hacked. If you only want surface change, this work is not going to be for you.
