What does being “In The Moment” really mean?

Today I made a fantastic distinction around Diversity = Dynamic

One of the challenges of sharing ideas in family, team, and community – is we can experience control or get upset and regularly come away feeling confused by another person’s strong point of view around systems, a project or start-ups. I believe this is attributed to our different styles of thinking, not learning. We each go through our own unique thought process to come up with our interpretation of a situation.

These interpretations are expressed by the way our personal neuro pathways are fired up in the brain; an array of electrical impulses and connections that help you to express yourself. And yes, I know we have all heard about all the different learning styles, but this is different.

What I am talking about here is “how do we stay present with each other without being dominated by one person’s particular thinking process?” I believe the reason for all the discord or control in relationships, be they personal or professional and even cultural and community are due to this very thing.

I term this behaviour ‘the thinking wars’ – Dominance = Disconnect.

However, where we need to move to as a species is – Diversity = Dynamic

And of course this all sounds good on paper or on a wiz bang power point, but how do we do it in real time, real life? We must be willing to cross the bridge with one another, we literally have to drop out of our thinking for a moment or two and connect to the intelligence of our heart.

If each person present can accept that the only way they can truly understand each other and make a valuable contribution, is through a genuine heart to heart connection, this is in fact what empowers people. Because the real power is when and where lasting trust is built. Truth is, we are never going to really understand the way another person thinks because we are not that person.

Moreover, we most certainly can connect with each other through our aligned values, which are born from the heart.

Our aligned values are what make up the unbreakable connections, which can form this powerful and effective Diversity = Dynamic bridge.

The new wave of relationship in business is emerging: where people adopt a very different, but progressive model of teamwork… Because it will be through our surrender to the power of the heart that we will experience the benefits of cordial collaboration, social synergy, cohesive community and contributing more than money.

So, my dear humans take heed…

HEART to HEART CONNECTION is the currency of the FUTURE. 

The great news is, we all have one!

THE ARTIST

THE ARTIST – Creates COMMUNITY/TRIBE

Some other choices in this category are Designer, Painter, Musician and Poet. Through your expression of life as an Artist you create tribes or followers that form community. This is how you grow your style of leadership. It is through your followers/community that you can see how your visions and artistic talents as a new style leader benefit others. By simply sharing your talent, art or craft, your community then starts to enroll others to support your leadership and vision as their own.

Community Needs Your Leadership.                                                                    

THE CHANGE AGENT

 

THE CHANGE AGENT – Lives with COMMITMENT

Some other choices in this category are Forerunner, Overseer, Futurist and Regulator. 

Being a Change Agent demonstrates commitment. You have a clear vision of the future and your life purpose, which inspires you and encompasses your highest values and priorities.  You have the capacity to envision what is not yet conceivable. You also have the willingness to proclaim a vision without regard for personal gain. You are committed even when you don’t want to be, don’t feel like it, or it isn’t fun.  Standing firm in your commitments pushes you to achieve anything you say that you will, regardless of feelings, circumstances or challenges.

Commitment Inspires Your Leadership.

Real Deal, Real Time…

I so love doing real seminars in real time. Because that’s the only way to create a lasting shift in people – as humans we need to FEEL in order to LEARN that is what we call having an EXPERIENCE, which is also how we gain experience. I believe we have confused the word experience with the word stimulation.

AS HUMANS WE NEED THE EXPERIENCE OF BEING EXPERIENCED – this is a proven fact of how human beings grow.

Perhaps we are living in a world that is looking for the ‘ultimate experience’ simply because of our lack of genuine attention and being over stimulated in our life.

Keep it real so it lasts, I say.

Sublime Style 

Fashion is nothing to do with sex, fame or status and everything to do with your Attitude and Creativity – The way one presents to others is only ever related to the person wearing it. Indeed, we are what we wear – as we are what we share.

 #6. Establish COHERENCE

Coherence is all about quality connections. If your team around you is not coherent, your leadership style will not evolve. Coherence is the glue that keeps a team sound and again connected. Being coherent requires a commitment to the whole; it requires being fully present on all levels.

Coherence creates community.

Become A Social Entrepreneur Connector 

Home truth coming your way… I haven’t always been the best at the whole networking thing. I use to think, if I always do my best the business will come. Well that does work to some degree, but the truth is good networking does work and great networking rocks!!!

The thought of networking at conferences and industry events can make some social entrepreneurs a little bored, twitchy or even nervous to say the least. But if you go into it feeling that uncomfortable, your results will be mediocre. Attending “Great Connecting Events” are a major part of being a successful entrepreneur, so it’s in your best interest to get being really, really good at it…

Its time to learn how to be a spectacular “Tribe-Talker”

Here is a simple format to help you make valuable connections and find ways to unleash your expressive, dynamic and passionate tribe-talker within.

Slide05

1. Ideas = Intention

Identify your intention before you even get to your event.

What are you looking to get out of the event?
Are you there to generate leads?
What kind of people do you want to meet?
Which speakers do you want to connect with?

2. Integrity = Identity

Leave your intrusive elevator pitch at home.

Remember you’re not there to close a sale. Avoid selling yourself and telling everyone why your product or service is the best. Instead, ask everyone you speak to… “Is there anything I can do to help your operation.” This generous approach will leave an impression that ensures they’ll answer your phone call or email after the event.

This display of “Generosity of Spirit” starts to build your relationship for future discussions. Don’t forget to follow up with everyone. Make contact within 72 hours of the event. This keeps your encounter fresh in peoples minds.

3. Passion = Purpose

Don’t sound robotic. Let your true personality shine through. Be authentic.

Building 4 or 5 meaningful connections is better than collecting 30 business cards from people you wont speak to again. Sprouting off your script-like spiel might get you a business card, but probably just to make you go away.

Take time to be fully present in your conversations and remember your follow up time after the event is important. Those “being totally present conversations” can often lead to valuable business opportunities.

4. Leadership = Leverage

Be heard and seen.

Nobody is going to remember you unless you are engaging. If you are at a conference make an effort to ask at least one question during the Q&A session following each presentation. Not an empty question with no real purpose – it needs to be an interaction of authenticity and intelligent. This is a great way to get on the radar of everyone in the room. People will approach you to connect and will initiate conversation. If you seem even a little savvy around a topic, you become attractive, a magnet that can pull in contacts from many directions.

5. Diversity = Dynamic

Team up with a people who compliment your flaws and strengths.

It’s always easier when you have others on your team – it gives you extra confidence and if you select your networking partners carefully you can make sure you are equipped with people who make up for your shortcomings.

For instance, if you are a bit of a risk taker or change agent partner up with someone that is a people pleaser and mentor. Let them open up some conversations and introduce you to bring it home and make new connections. And equally, you can support them when need be, with your unique strengths.

Slide06

You attend networking events and conferences to make valuable connections, right? Use this simple format to make sure you make the most out of every event you attend.

Trust + Truth = Unity

real deal copy

Learning the importance of being connected and staying connected with people with whom you resonate with, is in fact what builds an effective community.

Trust + Truth = Unity

And It’s through our frequency of interaction and transparency, which eventually creates true prosperity. This is our new currency that also leads to greater levels of human resources.

At this level of connection, we enter a higher level of possibility and creativity, which is the nature and desire of the TribeTalker.

The only intention of the TribeTalker is to reach higher ground. They are the forward-thinking business owners, life coaches, trainers, students, presenters, and entrepreneurs, who want to see a change in our world by genuinely helping each other succeed.

Do you want to highlight your talents and promote your personal brand, through the power of edifying and unifying people?

If so, you are indeed part of this emerging breed of new style leaders.

Elizabeth is excited to be the facilitator of an authentic and amazing new way of being in a relationship, business and community.

We show you how your ability to share your life experiences with others gives you clarity and confidence to effectively share other people’s stories, which creates a currency between people that promotes true prosperity. This new way of being takes us out of the old Silo paradigm that promotes scarcity to a new and vibrant Tribe paradigm that promotes there is always enough, if we share.

And I genuinely believe we need to thank our bright new generation of individuals for this shift, they have arrived at the table with the thought provoking message…

“I don’t care what you know, until I know that you care”.

What a great way to live in relationship, business and community, which fits perfectly with the TribeTalkers creed of “We are what we share and we share if we care”

Look forward to meeting you at one of our events in the future 🙂

Collective Visioning

Lead with questions, not answers…

New style leadership doesn’t mean coming up with the answers and motivating people or your team to your larger vision. It means having the humility to see that you don’t have all the answers and to ask questions that will lead to the best people with the insights to make your vision a collective one.

Living in a world of rapid change and constant competition it still comes back to the reality that companies don’t innovate and get results, people do.

A new style leader who is serious about creating a culture that unleashes creative potential to overcome issues and introduce innovation will succeed. They say the best way to respond to change is to create it.

Great leaders who take on the role of coaching and encouraging people can better navigate the future through the practice of collective visioning.
