Interview Questions

Click over the below for the answers

What does the term “Conscious Leadership” mean?

“Conscious Leadership” supposes an opposition to “unconscious leadership,” or that, which is on autopilot, without ‘awareness’ of oneself or those one leads and serves.  Consciousness provides an opportunity to do things differently. A “Conscious Leader” is better able to demonstrate empathy, compassion, love, and other attributes that coalesce others to follow.

Where can these concepts be applied in everyday life?

The principles are aptly applied across a wide array of professional and personal applications. Leaders include parents, educators, community and civic leaders; and anyone who coalesces others’ talents, energies, collaborations, and behaviors to achieve a goal. The principles offer everyone valuable lessons in not only improving one’s life and reality but affecting everyone around him/her.

How are you qualified to teach on this topic?

After 3+ decades in corporate America, I realized I was living below my potential. My life coach and I explored this topic. My MA program in Transpersonal Leadership brought me to a crossroad of applying these principles in my career. For several years, I have led a large employee base utilizing the principles and realizing compelling results.

What can people truly expect to learn about change from your work? Do you inform or are you more of a practical Change Agent?

With slight changes in the dance steps, leaders learn a greater power than previously known— connecting with employees and customers in a focused and genuine manner. Living true is a choice. I am a vocal evangelist and practical magic maker, inspirational speaker, author and performance consultant able to identify and train others. I am the ignition switch to this transformation.

Where have you currently implemented this in the world?

This approach has been implemented in my work with Bank of America in Atlanta and Los Angeles as well as within my family and all my interpersonal relationships.  This is a way of living.  Our lives are not a dress rehearsal.  This is the real deal. It’s time to wake-up.

Which of your 7 principles do you find the hardest to implement in your own life?

‘Be a Risk-Taker’ is most challenging for it calls into question a pivotal driving force called- fear. Leaders are fear-crippled to share honest feelings, lest they be classified a naysayer or troublemaker. It’s risky business being a risk-taker. Fear has many faces. Living conscious to the impacts of fear requires courage, trust and integrity.

Which principle do others struggle with the most from your experience & why?

Be a peace-builder: quell the fires within presents struggle for most. We are oblivious to deeply held firm belief systems, our pain points from past injuries/disappointments, prejudices and biases and unresolved issues. Our professional lives are internally scarred by the fires that continue to rage within. The real you can’t come out unless you extinguish the fires.

How long do these concepts take to begin to notice the changes in people’s lives?

What you put out comes back. Living from a state of consciousness gives the opportunity to live life by taking charge. You immediately know a difference in yourself and in those with whom you interact. Operating from these principles brings about an energetic flow that is connective and attractive, not shut off and negative. Everyone benefits.

Are they permanent changes of a sort or do they need to be practiced every day, like ‘healthy eating’?

It takes practice and commitment to live consciously. Our society, with its attention to win-lose philosophy, does not easily support conscious leadership because it potentially challenges the status quot, calling for honesty, integrity, ethics, love and compassion— not exactly how mainstream defines success, but once the decision is made it becomes second-nature.

How do you help people in ways that others who claim to offer these concepts don’t or can’t?

I offer extensive experience and proven results using these methods while working for a major corporation. Also, I do not espouse changing a company’s practices or procedures. What I offer works within your existing structure—-working from the inside out. What you do is important but HOW you do what you do is the transformative magic.

What is the first step to implementing these principles?

WAKE UP! In many companies it’s taboo to speak in terms of love and compassion. The closest I have experienced is the term, ‘purity of intent.’ The time is now to stop the false dialogue that refuses to recognize that honestly caring for those you lead and serve means engaging them from a perspective of love, compassion and understanding.
