Listen to Your Voice

Amy and Ed are part of a collective of leaders sharing the leadership development journey. We were in a phone conference where Ed had asked for assistance with an issue. Ed’s organization was making some tough decisions and people were unsettled and afraid. Ed had organized a series of meetings with non-management facilitators and had asked for our feedback.

As our dialogue deepened, Amy and I were not certain we were providing any assistance. That is when Amy’s wise intuition took over as she asked, “Ed, where is your voice in all this?” It turns out Ed’s voice was in his planning from the beginning and becoming conscious of this fact made Ed more resolute in his approach.

Amy and Ed are learning to recognize the sound of their own voice at all stages of decision and choice. They are learning the sonorousness of purpose.

The music of your purpose must be heard. You first listen internally to find voice. You then learn its sound and consciously allow it to be heard. Being at peace with who you are fuels purpose.
