Clarity, presence, and clarity of presence attract me to the stream. While clarity gives me the ability to see the contents of the stream, and to feel more in control, it magnifies my presence to the inhabitants of the stream.

The stream itself is enough for the peace I seek. The more I seek to fully understand the stream, the more I understand its inhabitants. And let’s face it, I wade the stream in part to stalk trout. I’ve learned that if I want to catch trout I must understand trout behavior. I also know that I have much yet to learn and practice.

While understanding doesn’t give me control over trout behavior, understanding gives me control over my own behavior as I seek the bounty of the stream. The bounty is wary and I must work hard to understand the worthy adversary. As I intend to lure the bounty from the stream, I’ve had to learn how to practice stealth.

In the sense of wading the stream, stealth is less about concealment and more about making a connection. Stealth is the skill acquired from practice guided by an ever developing understanding.

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.
