“I’m confident in our story.”

He said this to me when talking about an upcoming meeting with one of the organization’s top leaders. The purpose of the meeting is to assist her in speaking to the relevance of the work of my Client’s team.

As he spoke of this task he said something very important; “Outcomes may cloud judgment.” The possible meanings in this statement are many.

My Client has a story to tell about his team. Because of the content of his particular story, the meaning my mind assigned to his statement had to do with detaching from the outcome. While he is focused on continued relevance – and knows the importance of sustainable results – he is keenly aware of the importance of presence to his story.

And it is in this presence where his voice finds its tenor and his confidence shows through. Something else he said I feel perfectly defined his confidence for the story – “Being open and neutral in order to guide people to where they need to be.”

It seems to me he doesn’t need to be too concerned about relevance.

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.
