The Power of Us

I’ve been active in a professional organization now for five years. My contributions are in response to what I continually receive … and what I want for the future. Each year the current & incoming officers meet to do a strategic handoff. After our ‘2006 to 2007’ session, we all received an email from one of our colleagues who participated in that meeting. What she expressed, and how she expressed it, was simply beautiful. It is what I wish for all your gatherings as a Leader:

“… it is a rare gift to enter a space in which everyone can be fully who they are and in which it is not a risk to contribute from the center of our beings, to say what we think without censorship, to leave the meeting feeling affirmed and affirming of everyone present: not of any particular contribution, but of who we are individually and as a group. And as we grow, the organization grows. This is a very personal, shared process. I love our history together, our present, the place we are right now, and our plans to unfold into the future.”

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
