So much of what is written about leadership focuses on needing tools, such as better communication or learning approaches, such as in collaboration with co-workers versus power-over attitudes.
As someone with a background in both psychology and integrative health, for the past 12 years as a Leadership Coach, my approach in working with all of my clients, brings an additional element. I also assess their health spiritually, emotionally, and physically. I do so because I am fully aware that disease in any of these areas consistently impacts the business and the energy of the leader. Needless to say, that also significantly impacts the pocketbook…
Healthy leaders have healthy pocketbooks. Plain and simple.
Spiritually healthy leaders know that life happens for them not to them and they are willing, if not anxious, to learn what it is telling them in any situation trusting their inner-knowing and/or intuition…
Emotionally healthy leaders know the ways in which they self-sabotage and have tools to come back into balance quickly without reacting or playing victim – in depression or rage.
Physically healthy leaders have the energy, focus, and strength needed to give everything the job requires and know how to eliminate or minimize the things it doesn’t.
When all three elements of health are in place, there is an awareness of your purpose, a connection to your passion, and a sense of power that comes from knowing you are exactly where you belong.
In that space, you bring in everything you need and more even if it doesn’t always look the way you thought…
Haven’t you noticed that when you are in a good place it seems as if opportunities show up out of nowhere?
That you meet just who you wanted to connect with?
Clients come looking for you?
It is as if you are putting out a vibration that says, “Let’s do this!” and consequently people just want to join with you.
Your pocketbook gets filled from all the opportunities and your joy, passion, and connection to your purpose lets you and others know you got this.
Healthy is the key word for thriving, not surviving. And to think it is all in your hands.
This is my reason for supporting those who are ready to fly, and ready to take themselves and their purpose to the next level. It feeds my purpose, my passion, and lets me know I have the power of experience, training, and living to bring it all together.
We all do! Here’s to your health!
