What is Whole Leader?
Because leadership starts from the inside out; through learning to lead ourselves before we lead others, I have come to believe a holistic approach to leadership is essential. This is especially true given the high pressure and fast-pace work demands that most of us face today. How can we expect to be strong or even effective leaders when our metaphorical cups are empty? Leaders are humans which means we have a primal need for nourishment that feeds the mind, body, and soul. Here, you will find a wide range of topics related to leadership – some more loosely than others – all with the intent of providing tools which will help you become more whole and ultimately, the best version – and leader – of yourself.
My promise to you…
I promise to be honest and authentic in my words to you. I hope you will find my voice to be a true reflection of the person I am.
I am thoughtful and methodical. I care deeply about the things which are important to me. I am compassionate, but realistic. I am occasionally cynical and, at moments, self-deprecating.
I will always research the topics I write about so that the information I provide is as accurate and reliable as possible. I will write from my own experiences, from my heart, and about topics that are truly important to me. I will write from my own perspective and share the things that resonate most with me.
I will not have all of the answers. I will not always be right. After all, no human is perfect (I know someone out there is saying, “well, there was that one guy…” so let me clarify – no human I have met has had all of the answers or has always been right or in any other way fulfilled the standards of perfection – at least not to this point in my life! So, let’s be realistic here…).
I don’t expect that you will find everything I write about to be personally relevant or meaningful. My hope for you is that you will find this blog helpful to you in whatever way you seek. Maybe you will find some tidbit of advice to be of use and the rest you can set aside. Perhaps, you will find a sense of community. Or, you may simply find comfort in knowing that you are not alone.
Whatever has brought you, please know that you are welcome here, and you are not alone.
