Another unsurprising pick from the C3 community, this month during our Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership we focused on Inner Journeys. It’s not surprising because we tend to talk about self-awareness during each and every monthly event we have done, because that is where all conscious efforts begin. Inner journeys are something all conscious leaders have in common.
Our panelist, Christopher Waters, Social Impact Strategist and award-winning professor, opened up the topic by positioning inner journeys as a way to look at how you develop professionally and personally, and how we reflect and move forward. We proposed that how in-depth we take our journey can determine how far we go, and we talked about why that is.
We opened up talking about how some journeys are not self-led – in other words, they are not conscious, they are not internal, and went on to discuss how you know. Join C3 to watch the replay and hear what was said about that as well as the following aspects of inner journeys:
- What are questions you can start with to direct your inner journey
- How does our inner journey impact various realms of our lives
- How can we make the inner journey more accessible to more people
- What does it mean to sign yourself up for a journey and are people still doing this
- What an inner journey isn’t
- What does it look like operationalize inner journeys in your life
- How do you help someone accept that development is an unending effort
- How do we discern if we are being authentic about our inner journeys and how do we remain there as we navigate
- What are the detriments of avoiding the inner journey and following the “programming” and what is the payoff of doing the work of an inner journey
- What is the hero’s journey and how may it apply to your journey
- What should you not mistake for progress
- How does an inner journey compare to navigating an actual journey
- How do you help people identify their own inner why
- As a teacher, how can you challenge students to understand the difference between the work that goes deep and that which fails to go deep
- How can a boomerang help you understand gaps that need to be filled
As Lawrence said as we wrapped up, and as is true for nearly every Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership event, we barely just tipped the iceberg on this topic.
We didn’t even dig into some of the major tools and methodologies of inner journeys, though a few were mentioned.
What are some tools that you have used to navigate your inner journey?
Join C3 today for the opportunity to speak about critical conscious leadership topics such as this, to connect and co-create with other conscious leaders, and to access the replays of our events.
