A Leader's Journey is an exceptional leadership development process that includes on the job practice for experiential learning. It is the coaching of the inner being and experiential aspect that creates retained learning and growth. There are numerous courses and workshops about leadership today that produce intellectual knowledge. Leadership is so much more. It's about the heart, the spirit and the emotional nature of the leader.
The authentic connection to people is the vital link. It creates a culture of trust, respect and openness that produces the inspiration for engagement, alignment and achievement. However, before leaders can have an authentic connection with others, they must connect authentically with themselves. In addition to leadership coaching, leaders have an option to do authentic work through our Hoof & Heart Experience, which is our popular equine assisted coaching process.
Most leaders start their journey with acquired skills such as marketing, finance or professional expertise. Few are aware of their motivating behaviors and needs, strengths, unique offerings to others, or how they make a difference in the world around them. We coach you to become aware of your inner identity and natural talents, mission, vision, purpose and values, which are critical to growth and authentic self-expression. By expanding your use of these inner resources and innate power, you develop a deep trusting relationship with yourself and make decisions based on your own truth. The deep, connected relationship with yourself creates a platform for leading authentically. Your authentic self-expression will create value and inspire others to follow with passion and energy.
Leadership development is a comprehensive process. It's not only about authenticity, presence and the ability to inspire others to follow, but it is also about having good business acumen. Predictive Index has gone through an extensive process to define what they believe are the top eight qualities of a good leader and wrote a short rubric called, "Leadership
Development" that outlines those eight qualities. They have also created a "Transformational Leader Checklist" that includes
four leadership qualities that increase employee motivation, morale and job performance. Download these articles at the bottom of this page.
Part of a leader’s journey is creating an authentic connection with their team. Leaders impart their own learning journey as they model new behaviors. This impacts team learning and enhances authenticity, chemistry and alignment, utilization of natural talents, diversity, equality, and inclusion.
These team dynamics create self-awareness, acknowledgement and action to establish new behaviors and sustainable change. Teams support each other through sharing, questioning and giving feedback. As a result, the members develop trust, close relationships and a deep sense of belonging.
On a company level, the leader and team journey provides guidance in establishing an authentic mission, vision and purpose that inspires employee engagement and sets company direction, along with company values and guiding principles to drive optimal business outcomes.
Take a Leader's Journey with your team.
"Joan worked as a coach-consultant to me and my team of four Vice Presidents for a year, meeting with us monthly. We worked in areas like strengths, building trust among ourselves and with our followers, and recognizing and employing a broader range of situation-appropriate leadership styles. Joan is an excellent coach! Even among a group of "seasoned" senior leaders, she engendered a remarkable amount of growth and development. Joan is a pleasure to work with. I sincerely recommend her."
