Happy 2nd Anniversary, C3!
Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership June 2022 – Empowering People, A 2nd Anniversary edition
I was attending my eldest’s academic awards ceremony this month, so I personally was not in attendance, but I had every confidence (zero trepidation, Lawrence) that my partner, Lawrence Henderson, was going to facilitate deep, meaningful insights from our panelists Dina Kelly, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at American House Senior Living Communities, and Dr. Shané (“Doc Shané”) Teran, Executive Coach, Licensed Therapist, and Org Health Consultant from SP Consulting Group, LLC. I am appreciative that he did so that I could be present to my daughter to celebrate her hard work, though, in watching the replay, I wish I had been able to be there, too, especially because I just realized that this June event marks the 2nd anniversary of the C3 community and these Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership events!
We had attendees from Charlotte, Detroit, Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Delaware, while Dina attended from Nashville and Dr. Shané from Los Angeles.
Both panelists started out with massive wisdom bombs, Dr. Shané sharing, “Whatever is going on for you personally is going to affect you professionally.”
Dina defined empowerment as leadership that is about bringing up other leaders with you and helping them become autonomous. Let them make some moves on their own, even if you disagree, and let them prove you wrong.
The hour just continued to add immense value. Watch the replay in C3 now to find out what our empowerment powerhouse panelists said about the following:
- What does empowering people even mean?
- What makes a person feel empowered?
- How do we get people to move in a direction where they start communicating their needs?
- What is the conditioning that prevents people from building a trusting relationship with leaders?
- How can you help people who are set in their ways evolve past this conditioning?
- How do you decode and recode leaders to reach new levels of success?
- How did the paradigm of “promote and try to replicate technical experts” hurt progress overall?
- How do you make it so that every element of a business is being tended to with care?
- How do you recognize when you are no longer evolving?
- What must be overcome in an individual to not feel like they are giving something up by offering someone else the credit, the spotlight, the responsibility, the power?
- How do you integrate empowerment into the employee journey starting with hiring and onboarding, especially with leaders to whom leadership does not come naturally?
- What is the one thing that you can do today to start practicing empowering yourself?
As we move into our 3rd year, we want to continue adding people to the community who are out there making a real difference in conscious leadership and are committed to co-creating a more conscious corporate landscape.
