What is New Style Leadership?

Why is New Style Leadership necessary today?

How can New Style Leadership succeed in the real world?

New Style Leadership is not based on the old model of just seeing results; the old bottom line system address’ only one aspect of the whole process. While the New Style Leader focuses on staying in a unity-based context, which defines and gives structure to the role of the New Style Leader as a co-creator.

The first step in becoming a New Style Leader is saying YES to the call…

What does that mean?

A New Style Leader knows that social and spiritual awareness are one in the same and play a large part in being an effective leader. Saying yes to the call is actually saying yes to your conviction as a social and spiritual entrepreneur.

People may say “but I am not socially active and I am not particularly spiritual either”. Let’s view the idea of social and spiritual – there are many definitions in the dictionary that describe spiritual, many of which are focused on religion. I suggest this is not the case for most people in society.

Here are three definitions, which I believe are how many people view the idea of being social and spiritual today.

Definition – Social

  • Pertaining to, devoted to, or characterized by friendly companionship or relations.
  • Living or inclined to live in companionship with others or in a community, rather than in isolation.
  • Have or pertaining to the life, welfare, and relations of human beings in a community.

Definition – Spiritual

  • Relating to, consisting of, or having the nature of spirit; not tangible or material.
  • Pertaining to having a spirit or soul, different from the physical nature.
  • Having a relationship based on a profound level of mental or emotional unity, pertaining to a refined and higher quality of emotions and actions.

What I am suggesting here is the idea of being dedicated to social and spiritual awareness, which are at the heart of every New Style Leader and one cant create long-term effective change in the world without these two very powerful and necessary elements.

Social and Spiritual  

We have turned to many metaphor duets over time and Social and Spiritual can indeed come under that category.

Here are just a few popular examples – as above/so below, within/without and the micro/the macro. The connection between Social and Spiritual awareness plays an important part in our human experience, we are much more than our immediate world of material matter, we are also made up of our inner more sensitive world of emotions, which are connected to our thoughts, feelings, desires, and visions for a promising future.

However, the moment one starts to talk in these terms, their audience often becomes dismissive, defensive, and disagreeable. Perhaps that’s because people have thought you must keep social and spiritual concepts separate.

But what if keeping them separate has actually created many of the hardships we are facing today. I believe there is no separation between social and spiritual; unfortunately, humanity is repeatedly creating this illusion of separation, which is supporting our unstable and disturbing reality.

The New Style Leaders role requires bringing these two worlds/realities; social and spiritual together. It doesn’t involve becoming a preacher or religious person. All it requires is the desire to cultivate a promising future for humanity, one where both social and spiritual needs are met and respected.

It is acknowledging, honoring, and participating in the process of creation…

Every culture throughout early civilization was centered on a creation myth of some kind. A creation myth (or creation story) is a cultural, traditional or religious myth, which describes the earliest beginnings of the present world. Creation myths are the most common form of myth, usually developing first in oral traditions, and are found throughout human culture. A creation myth is usually regarded as conveying profound truths, although not necessarily in a historical or literal sense.

They are cosmology myths, which describe the ordering of the cosmos from a state of chaos or nothingness. What I am suggesting is that all human culture was originally based on similar concepts, like the social and spiritual connection. This is not a new or unusual concept; perhaps we have just forgotten the nature of our origins. I’m not saying we need to return to such ancient practices, but rather we can draw on these ideas that were unity-based.

Basic types of creation myths are: EARTH DIVER – EMERGENCE – OUT OF NOTHING – WORLD PARENT – CREATION FROM CHAOS

Here are three simple definitions that I believe are aligned to the social and spiritual model of leadership. I see the concept and application of creation and co-creation as being a very valuable tool in our world today.

Definition – Creation

  • The act or process of creating.
  • Something that has been brought into existence or created.
  • The act of creating or engendering; give rise to.

These three neutral definitions of creation also provide a great platform from which to form a new and stronger style of leadership. The idea of creation is the combination of being in the continuous process of social and spiritual activity. Creation could, in fact, be the process and the result of how we grow as human beings.

We are creation its self, so through the process of becoming socially and spiritually creative, it enhances our ability to create even more. Creating a new, creating together, creating social systems and creating spiritually sound relationships. This is how we grow a vibrant and creative new humanity.

I don’t see an end to the process, but rather it requires a commitment to stay in the process until your time is up; your personal life cycle is complete. We need to stay in a continuous process of creation in order for the new humanity to remain just that; it must always remain in a state of new.

New Style Leaders collectively have the what, why, how and vision to respond to the call of creation.

So, in conclusion, I suggest that social and spiritual are actually one of the same and do need to co-exist. We require social structures that have a sound unity-based context, in order for the refined qualities of our human spirit to be creative and fully expressed. The New Style Leader is committed to maintaining and repairing the social and spiritual fabric of humanity. The New Style Leader is prepared to stay in the process of creation for as long as it takes to fulfill their life’s purpose.

If we are able to observe the perfected patterns of nature; Creation, desirable results form organically and the true nature of success takes up its rightful place in community and humanity.

Your Vision Steers Your Leadership Style

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I really know what makes my heart sing?
  • What do I usually tell myself to avoid taking action?
  • What does my role as a New Style Leader give me?
  • How do I measure my improvements?
  • Do I believe I can make positive changes in the world?
  • What do I already know? What skills do I have?
  • What do I want to communicate and participant in?
  • What are my personal values?
  • What have I learned from my experience, and how can I apply that now?
  • What can I offer to support our team vision?
  • Do I need encouragement?
  • How do I feel about my current reality as a New Style Leader?
  • Am I happy in my role?
  • Where am I on my social and spiritual path?

These questions are to help you gain a clearer picture of what you may need as an up and coming New Style Leader, and what changes you may consider making to enhance your experience.

11

Discovering your Creative Self.

Know yourself.Decide what your larger vision is.Think about what you value most in life, and how your current vision could match that value.

Brush up on techniques. Perhaps you might need to get advice in some areas, or some guidance. Talking to a mentor or spiritual counselor may help here. Or it may be time for you to become a mentor.

Keep a cool eye and a firm hand.Commit to a course of action with your team or perhaps you need to find a team and apply an ongoing strategy that will aid in keeping your focus as a team.

Enjoy your role as a New Style Leader. Reward yourself and feel good about what you have committed to and where you are heading.

REAL DEAL 12 C’s

#5. Live your COMMITMENT

Know your commitment. Create a clear Vision Statement for your life and your business that inspires you and encompasses your highest values and priorities.  Be committed even when you don’t want to, don’t feel like it, or it isn’t fun.  Standing firm in your commitments will push you to achieve anything you say that you will, regardless of feelings, circumstances or challenges.

Commitment inspires leadership.

Is life meant to be soft, hard or fun?

#2: Express COURAGE

Don’t wait to feel courageous. Act courageously even when you feel it the least. Only when you act in the face of fear do you validate your true bravery and boldness. Be audacious in accepting challenges. Calculate your risks to help reduce apprehension, then defy your fear and step forward.

Courage Cultivates Leadership.

Letʼs talk money.

Slide16 

MONEY…

  • Maybe you want it real bad.
  • Maybe youʼre scared because you donʼt have enough of it.
  • Maybe it dictates how you feel each and every day.

And maybe, you’re giving it way too much power!!!

What if, as a real deal entrepreneur or visionary you can create an entirely new relationship with money.

One that is based in Love, Giving, Service, And Trust; because these are the energies that will allow you to thrive. For example, think about money like a personal relationship.

If you were always scared, holding back, and waiting for something better to occur, how long do you think that relationship would last?

Or what if you didnʼt like it that much and said things like “Itʼs not that important to me,” how long do you think that person would stick around? You got it….not long!

So the question is always: “How do I create a better relationship with money?” And for me that answer is simple, because itʼs the same formula to change anything:

1) First acknowledge that you need to change (it always starts with awareness and taking personal responsibility). You canʼt do anything differently until you embrace where youʼre at.

2) Find a mentor/teacher/guide who you trust, respect, and can learn from…and then stop at nothing to be with them. Why try to struggle and figure it out on your own when there are so many people who can help you get to where you want to go faster and with more ease.

3) Shift your consciousness and things will change naturally, organically, and on their own… because consciousness creates your reality.

So, since you have found your way to me to be your guide in this moment, let me start by giving you some real concrete tools to create a powerful and new relationship with money.

To start, let me ask you this question:

What happens when you decide to give away more love?

Thatʼs right, you get more love! When you walk around with the intention to share your love, people feel it and return it with their own energy and attention….right?

So if you have been holding onto your money So Tightly and not investing in the resources, training, tools, or guidance that will help you create more money, how on earth do you expect your paradigm to change.

Because let me bold: it wont !

When the energy of trust comes into the equation. Because you will think to yourself: “How on earth could I give away my last remaining dollars when I donʼt know where or how it will come back to me?”

You must trust my friend….trust!

Yes, it will feel scary. Yes, you will doubt. Yes, people will try to convince you to play safe and hold back (”you can get that for free somewhere else”) and KNOW that you will get exactly what you need when you decide to say YES and follow your heart.

And because I can hear the critics barking already, let me be clear. Iʼm not saying that you should give away all of your money just to practice letting money flow.

10917923_761556057261803_1746661911132373918_o

What I AM saying is that if you want to make more money, itʼs important to learn the tools and knowledge that will help you do it. If deep in your soul, you know that a person, event, training, coach, or whatever, will help you get to the next level, then you must move mountains to make it happen.

Thatʼs when you let the money flow.

So to put this into action today, allow yourself to “invest” in something that you believe will help you progress, grow, and evolve.

Maybe youʼve been wanting to learn something new – register for it.

Maybe youʼve been wanting to hire that coach – do it.

Maybe youʼve been looking to make that move into a better office, go get it.

What is that thing you want or need to do?… take that inspired action and make it real today.

  • DREAM IT
  • CREATE IT
  • FEEL IT
  • LIVE IT

Show the universe that you are ready by taking that bold step forward to let money flow in your life.

And above all else, TRUST that you will be taken care of because you deserve to have a life of joy, fulfillment, and purpose.

Know yourself, discover your purpose is my motto in life… because when you know yourself, you Trust yourself.

So if you need more clarity around your personal brand and purpose, take that next step and contact me.

Moving from Me to We

casual-cliffs-enjoyment-590510

As we lift the veil of separation among women, what do we see?

Unfortunately, the first thing we see is fear, fear of loss, fear of control and fear of being left behind. We are in conflict with our self, we have fought for our liberation and here in the west, I believe we have achieved it. We are socially liberated but on the level of consciousness, we are not. We are still trying to find what our true liberty means, which of course comes from our inner belief systems. We now suffer from our internal conditioning rather than external conditions. It’s time to set our self free, free from all the behaviors our ancestral grandmother’s adopted in order to survive, these thought processes no longer serve us, its time to grant our self true freedom.

Is it time for women to stop competing for position and unite?

We are more than ready to bring forth the New Woman, our souls want to connect heart to heart and together dream a brand new day. The way of the past has weighed heavy on our hearts and we didn’t really know what was causing it. I believe the constant threat of competition has caused most of the destructive family and social behaviors among women. Today we have many choices and opportunities that bring us closer to our true potential. We know deep in our bellies that we are encoded with the power of unity. Where there is competition there is no innovation, but where there is innovation coupled with unity there is valuable momentum.

Are we responsible for our conditioned behavior?

Our conditioned behavior is an inbuilt protection system passed down from earlier generations, but now that system has become inappropriate for its environment. A bit like an old operating system on your computer, as soon as you know there is a new operating system available, everything about the old one seems to be irritating and slow. We can keep putting up with the old system or simply uploading the new one. Its all about responsibility; the ability to respond – It’s just a matter of choice and perseverance. The key for me is to keep uploading my New We Operating System. It works every time!

Are you ready to move from a ME reality to a WE reality?

Please share…

 

Living With Desire

 

It’s imperative that we bring forth our soul’s greatest desires.

Our life is a gift not to be squandered and if we pick only one true heartfelt desire to achieve in our outer world and only one heartfelt desire to achieve in our inner world, we can aid in the betterment of the whole world. In fact, if it changes us individually for the better it most defiantly will change the world because after all we are all connected by the Divine Web of Creation.

You might ask, “Why is this important?” It is because desire is the spark that ignites the flame of your soul and illuminates your innate creativity, imagination, and vision. Through your pure, heartfelt intention you will summon one of the most powerful agents of change in the universe—Desire.

So imagine if we really got cooking and accessed all our creativity and heartfelt desires – perhaps we really could create world peace.

In its purest form, your soul’s desire is a magnet pulling you toward the life you want to live. Your desires will source you with the inspiration to release your outdated beliefs and let go of whatever behavior is keeping you stuck in the past.

Your soul’s desires compel you to grow, evolve and move closer to your highest potential. Beneath the surface of your ego’s insatiable cravings, your authentic desires are waiting patiently for you to recognize, declare and communicate them.

My passion and quest are this – I am committed to raising self-esteem in women, young children, young women and the men in their life – I see an urgent need to ignite hidden desires and to help people step aboard the creative flow of life.

Joyously lifting them up from a mundane material world to a place of purpose and full expression.

I see that many young people have lost the ability to be creative – they’ve been born into a world where life has been presented to them by the means of “whatʼs in it for me?” and sadly when one comes from a place of constantly taking, they lose sight of whatʼs real and have no vision or more seriously they don’t develop the ability to give of themselves creatively.

Of course, it is not only our youth, but we also have been spoon feed information now for a couple of decades and have forgotten what it is like to explore and play in the realm of our imagination, in some ways we have forgotten how to really think, play and feel. Finding one’s self is more than a little personal development, it is a journey into the extraordinary fabric of the unseen worlds and the ability to bring back the treasures you found there.

Itʼs the ability to bring them back to our world and develop them for the greater good of all.

That is what a true Artisan, Visionary or Leader is – they are not afraid to be different, they don’t ask whatʼs in it for me, they are jubilant and thrilled to live their life with passion and conviction. They know how great it feels to be in flow with all that is and to use the time that they have been given wisely and to the best of their ability.

I am not saying that the information age and globalization has been entirely bad but sometimes when there is so much to choose from we choose nothing or just take what we are told we need.

What if this is the Humanitarian Age!

I invite you to share what your real deal passions and desires are in your life?

Generousity Of Spirit

Little child plays superhero. Kid on the background of sunset sky. Girl power concept

Over the last few months, I had the privilege of participating in a very powerful process with the Unite Your Light WOMEN team; It was the process of writing one version of my life story.

I introduced a very specific tool for us to use as we journeyed through our stories, which actually provided deep and comprehensive results, much more than I ever imagined.

As a personal development facilitator for more than 20 years, I have done many transformative processes, but this would have to be the most profoundly natural and liberating experience I have ever participated in.

The revisiting of my former SELF in the form of my own story was a rewarding and very specific inner exploration. The repeated meeting of my SELF at various stages of my life was extremely healing and empowering. – It organically allowed my SPIRIT, step by step, to come forth and reveal its true nature to my present SELF. Ultimately, the old concept of SELF-faded and what remained was the true VALUE of my delicate but victorious feminine Spirit…

In the process, I shifted from being just OK about the value of my vocation to a place of being totally grounded and responsible about what my true value actually is. As I moved through this natural process of empowerment I could feel a real sense of unquestionable spiritual maturity growing.

I could actually feel my value growing within me.

I had fought hard for my life more than once, and it soon became clear to me that my efforts in this lifetime had been victorious for a reason. I had indeed overcome my own suffering in order to empower other women, so they could become the leaders of their own life and become the new style leaders we need in the world. My tests had been heroic for a reason and now my true value was paving the way for me to serve my much-loved planet.

My SPIRIT had always been my guiding star and here it was again shining its light on my true value as a woman.

I learned that I need not worry about what others think of me, because it’s only those who resonate with my message, my story and my values that will pay attention anyway.

Now when I create and offer my services I ask myself…”Who would this be of VALUE to?” then I create the appropriate strategy toward serving those women. It is what I deeply value that adds value to another person’s life.

I learned that my ‘Generosity Of Spirit’ is the most valuable gift I can offer another human being.

Here is an exquisite example of my experience expressed through the beautiful voice of Diana Ross… Enjoy

If We Hold On Together

Don’t lose your way
with each passing day
You’ve come so far
Don’t throw it away
Live believing
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope, and glory
Hold to the truth in your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by, for you and I

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end

Valley…Mountain
There is a fountain
Washes our tears all away
Words are swaying
Someone is praying
Please let us come home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

When we are out there in the dark
We’ll dream about the sun
In the dark, we’ll feel the light
Warm our hearts…everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
As high as souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and I

When you think you have it all…

Hi there Social and Spiritual Synergy Spinners,

Well yes Adele we do think we have it all till we see our brothers and sisters, our children, our animals and our environment suffering, then we know deep, deep in our soul we don’t have it all unless our whole planet has it all.

I am deeply in love with my Husband, my Sons and my World around me. In fact I am in love with a life that has been wounded by insane speed, greed and needs. What we all want is real FREEDOM… a pure and undiluted freedom. I really love the urgent and heavy heart beat of this song, it makes me want to get up and demonstrate my PASSION for such a wonderous LIFE.

It creates an impulse of SHE power (Spiritually Healthy Entrepreneur)… I believe it is community that holds the freedom we are looking for, not a stuffy, sticky or intrusive bunch of people who don’t know who they really are. See the truth is we all long for contact with those who understand our heart song,

  • We long for connection with all that is curious and creative.
  • We are creatures who belong to each other for reasons beyond analysis, it is our hearts desire and our life’s dream to fulfill a worthy story.
  • We ache with a need to connect and create or sadly the other is we become numb and indifferent.

Be a courageously creative creature and connect to those who want to create with you.

Thank you Goddess Adele, your expression of the feminine is amazing !

Heart to Heart Elizabeth

Revealing Your Gift

What follows is my take on revealing one’s gift to the world.

We’ve all had experiences that demonstrate what being a New Style Leader feels and looks like and how it works in our life.

And it is through my own social and spiritual discovery of our inner and outer worlds, that brought me closer to the experience of the New Style Leader within. As we create more harmony in our soul, we are able to draw from the worlds around us and within us.

What I am referring to is an insight I had many years ago, about everything having an available symbiotic system that works in harmony with each person. And of course, there are other systems that are equally available but don’t necessarily aid in the same harmonic fashion.

Some are life generating while others are for the purpose of entropy.

The Living Attributes Typology is a complete system for the purpose of creating harmony between your inner and outer worlds, and through this balancing process (correct & transform) of the soul’s environment you ultimately reach your true potential.

The acknowledgment of the Light in all things – celebrates the power of creation. Even if a person can’t fully embrace this experience at first, faith in it eventually delivers their true purpose to them. I believe the experience of attributes such as Unity, Love, Beauty, Peace, Joy, and Kindness are key factors in demonstrating and celebrating our creativity.

Through the use of symbolism (art), colour, words, sound (song) and union, there is a shift that occurs in ones whole system (self/body), graciously aiding in the shift of the whole and larger system (Earth). These mediums are in a way like portals to Other Worlds, they are systems and the environments for particular light/energy forms. These Light forms (energy forces) are available to work with us, they are there to guide us into our full expansion, where we become one with the authentic power of being a New Style Leader.

It is said that the universal law of attraction guides us toward – What it is we want to give. This explains beautifully how our gifts are our quintessential drivers toward fulfilling our true purpose in life. As we recognize and work with our point in the heart, which is our homing device, we instinctively reach home base – giving us more clarity and ease than when we randomly look for what we think brings us, Bliss. Once we know what our inbuilt homing device feels like, and ultimately what it feels like to come HOME, we can then let go of the fear/anxiety of whether or not we are on purpose in our life. This surrendering of our fixed outcomes is actually our ticket HOME and it’s in honoring our gifts to the world (true talents) that we find the correct vehicle that can actually take us there.

We often take our gift or gifts for granted because they seem to come easily to us and therefore think they are not of any great value. The Creator gave our gifts to us freely; it is up to us to use these gifts wisely and with great reverence. Our gift is the most valuable possession we will ever own in this lifetime, purely because of where it came from, Source. Let’s look a little closer at the word “gift”.

A gift is usually a symbolic gesture of gratitude or marks a celebration of some sort.  If we view our gifts as something of a celebration, and we usually like to celebrate with others, so let’s start celebrating our ability to share our gifts with the world.

Everything about our journey on Earth is about giving; the ability to give is the most joyous thing we can do. Keeping everything to our self for the purpose of only receiving is counterproductive. It eventually creates a vacuum and we become either energetically congested to the point of wanting to explode or we implode energetically not knowing how to deal with life outside our self; lost in a sea of “where am I, who am I and why am I?”

Understanding and accepting the nature of our true gifts brings us home again, there is nothing to become anymore because the surrender was really only surrendering to the true nature of who we are. The Shadow Self’s real fear is; The Fear Of Being Fully Seen And Heard. Either way, the fear will kill our light and kill the life we were meant to live (by the way ‘live’ spelled backward is ‘evil’). So the evil of not sharing our gift is actually not fully living our lives.

Image if these people didn’t share their gifts –

Rudolf Steiner, Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, James Dean, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Michael Jackson, Edith Piaf, Shirley Temple, John Keats, Coco Chanel, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerburg, Meryl Streep, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Richard Branson, Anita Rhodic, Greta Garbo, Charlie Chaplin, Louise Hay, Buck Minster Fuller, Carl Sagan, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Stevie Wonder, George Washington, Sri Krishna, Emperor Constantine, Martin Luther, Socrates, Charles de Gaulle, Franklin D.

All these talented people have shared their gifts with the world and created a processional effect for many others. And of course, there are thousands of other individuals who have shared their gifts without the recognition. Interesting though, how all the people mentioned didn’t become less of themselves by sharing their gifts; in fact, they actually increased their presence because of it.

So if we view these wonderful role models and iconic figures as an example of what is possible, we see that if they hadn’t shared their gifts with the world, we wouldn’t be even having this conversation. Actually, I wouldn’t be able to write this article on my computer and send it out to the world. Their personal drive to do their work and share their gifts has served in evolving our planet in many ways. It doesn’t matter what arena we choose to play in, there is a divine reason why we have the gift that we do and from a big picture view, it is all-perfect.

The key factor here is – “Where do we like to be the most?”

This is how our inner homing device comes in to play; it’s our point in the heart that directs us like a compass to where we need to be. Each vocation is as important as the next.

The main areas of influence in the world are – Science, Arts, Industry, Education, Government and Wellbeing, all areas of creative expression aid in the evolution of the whole. When we are able to view life from a more conscious and contributing standpoint, our gifts begin to increase in value. We begin to see where we could be of value to the whole. We drop the need for it to be about money or personal gain and realize that our unique gifts are about giving to the world in the best way we can.

We are often hell-bent on collecting and holding on to what we think is rightfully ours – then it somehow slips away from us again. Like sand in an hourglass, we keep turning it up again hoping it will stay full this time. We haven’t learned the dance of giving a little here, give a little there and only take what you know you can give back.

Let’s remember we have and have always had something of amazing value to offer the world… our Gift.

Together we can celebrate the Gift that we were born to be and share… There is no beginning and there is no end, only the never-ending story – US.

What is your gift to the humanity that will light up the world?
