A Listening Tour

A Listening Tour

Over the past several months, I have been traveling to events around the country to promote my book, Circle of Impact: Taking Personal Initiative To Ignite Change.What began as a book promotion tour has transitioned into being a listening tour. You would have to be with me to understand the extent of insight that I’m gaining from talking to people on this tour.In these moments, I say the book is about:Personal Leadership, and,How we are all in Transition, personally, socially and organizationally.When I say these very words, people look me squarely in the eye, and step closer towards me. They want to know more. After some amazing conversations, most walk away with a signed copy of my book.Here are three things that I am seeing from this experience.

The Moment of Awareness

The Moment of Awareness

This experience is at the heart of the changes taking place in how leadership functions in our lives. Without uncertainty driving us towards certainty, we remain in a false self-confidence that we know what we need to know. This false security is why the process of self-discovery is one of the most challenging aspects of our lifetime.

The Universal Experience of Certainty

The Universal Experience of Certainty

True certainty is simply where we know who we are and are open to the full range of possibilities that emerge in the unfolding of our lives.

Without openness to learning, our lives can become closed and fear-fill. To be certain is a mark of our growing sense of just how we can make a difference in the world.

Uncertainty is the initial recognition that we are in transition. It is a universal feeling that we all have regularly, that tells us something is changing. We feel it but can’t put our finger on it. We may not have the skills or the perception to identify how we are in transition. If not, then we can become caught between what has been and what will be.
