In working one-on-one with leaders through the years, I’ve been led to a depth of work rich with experience, an immersion into connection filled with the rhythm of contemplation, poetry, and love.
Thanks to Mayra Porrata of Soul Publishing Group for encouraging this composition out of me! And thanks to Dan Roller for the rhythm around which this was written.
I hope you find deep encouragement for your inner leader; drawing such leadership out into a needy world.
What is the deeper context to which this work has led me?
This beautiful question brought me into conscious presence with where I then stood, in the middle of the flow of my own Trueness.
Trueness is your authentic self, from the beginning, with colors and hues on an original palette, simply waiting to be stroked into beautiful, present being by the dance and dialogue of artist and canvas.
In this book, I hope to encourage your Trueness, to offer words facilitating your unique impact in this world. For your Trueness is your rhythm, a poetic energy so needed in the world today.
As my friend Dan puts it, to know Trueness is, “To find the poetry in our work so that we can love our work and, most importantly, love others as we do our work.”
Learning to lead authentically begins within, at the unique source of Trueness.
Trueness is the poetic rhythm of an original voice, a resonance freed by experience and flowing ith the impact of presence.
I desire that you know the rhythm of Trueness, and my intent is that this book will bless you with the poetic presence of journey. The authentic pulse of your Trueness draws our trust to your brand of leadership love.
Regardless of age, your Trueness is intact. Regardless of the practical experience you may yet require, or may already have, what is needed to empower authentic leadership is right there inside you, now!
In this book, I advocate an intentional approach to leadership and a revolution.
The revolution is accomplished as a leader frees the flow between internal motivation and external validation … as the individual frees the authentic self.
This metaphorical wade will take you into the stream of who you really are as a leader; where you will find your confidence.
