Leader, you are your organization and your organization is you. You know this. You feel it. You see it every day. It scares you.
That’s ok. You do amazing work every day to lift your organization into survival – to support your crew, your customers, your suppliers, and your community as you provide goods and services to make the world a better place. By bringing yourself fully to your work, your organization takes on the character of you.
The good news – and the bad news – is that if you really want deep change to improve your organization, you must be that deep change. Gandhi was right – be the change you want to see around you.
Sometimes it’s hard for you to change because being who you’re being is what’s got you this far. Unfortunately, your business wants to evolve and it cannot if you’re stuck.
On the other hand, if you change, your organization must change.
You may not know what internal changes you need to make in order to birth the changes you want for your organization. You may not know how to show up to your organization as you’re practicing the changes you choose to make to yourself. You may not know how to deal with the resistance – or the support – that may show up when you change. Working in this kind of uncertainty is part of your talent and your skill or you wouldn’t be a leader.
I turn to The Field for guidance around being my authentic self and showing up that way every time I leave my home. I ask The Field to help me identify those aspects of me that I need to work on and for help doing the heavy lifting. When I’m in constant communication with The Field my intentions align with The Universe. Having The Universe as a partner makes the game much more interesting!
When I begin implementing the recommendations coming through a Remote Organization Assessment, I work on the last bit – the part about where to focus my internal attention – first. As I work with the guidance, answers to my questions about the rest of the situation emerge. My seeing changes. A space opens for me to move forward. As I change, the world in front of me changes as well. This is your power.
