Who needs to hear more about the infinite game we are in and the true leadership that is needed?
The infinite game is the name of the game for business, for life. Leadership – true leadership is needed at all levels, individually in our personal lives, and collectively to lead the way with our organizations, institutions, reinvent them to serve all of us, all of life.
I love Simon Sinek’s work on these questions, putting words on what I have long sensed. Through his work I discovered a passionate part of me for leadership I wasn’t fully aware of. Because I don’t resonate with many of the managements in place instead of true leadership. Leading for a Cause, the greater good of all, as our hearts and souls call for.
And when I reflected over that emerging passionate leader part of me about a year ago, I also came to remember that it’s been with me for a while. That Debbie Warrener’s courses “Inner Leadership for Outer Change” were a one of the first sights of a leadership I could resonate with. Some years earlier it was “The Circle Way” that I came across, another invitation from life to redefine and understand leadership in it’s noblest way, in service to life, as a part of each one of us.
So leadership has been calling for being rediscovered and explored in a more life giving way than many established managements and powers. And it is tugging at me, asking me: who needs this? Where, in which ways can I serve with these wisdoms, courageous leadership?
Where do you see the need of true courageous leadership? And what kind of support is needed? To whom?
This video from a year ago on the topic of balance between feminine flow and masculine structure is so juicy and seeing it today as I recently came back into the corporate world, I see how this is a very actual theme for me. Ifind myself challenged in my balance, struggling to find a new way of being where my feminine essence is both nourished and also invite the masculine goal oriented doer in me to breathe and remember why I’m here.
After a few weeks connecting to the goodness and the potential of bringing more of what lights me up : to contribute to the change in the world I want to see, I am challenged, experiencing old ways of being in a similar environment to the one “back then” and wondering how to create balance, ease, and take care of this part of me that get caught in the stress and rush in the work culture and that is afraid when she doesn’t have all the answers to what is presented to her.
Obviously the difficulties I meet are beyond balance of masculine and feminine energies. It’s also trusting to slow down when everything seems to accelerate and push. Trusting that by pausing and not doing for a moment will allow me to see more clearly. And trusting that I can handle what is presented to me even if in the moment the amount of information feels overwhelming and I have no idea yet about the way forward.
I’m writing about these chalenges I face and my unhealthy ways because once again I’ve got aware that I mostly share with you when I am in a place where I feel good enough and when inspiration is back. That’s quite natural but it also participate to a faulty idea that all is only well and under control for me when it is not. And I don’t want to feed anymore the myth of having everything under control or feed the pretending shiny surface that so many present on social media letting each one of us feeling inadequate when life is challenging.
So I’m challenged and out of balance. Having top much activities, doing, and not enough down time. Not even willing to fully choose down time because I feel the urge to compensate for the non inspired draining hours. Not willing to listen until my body doesn’t allow me to continue and imposes me rest.
I’m grateful that I see it and know that this strong contrast is calling me to change my behaviors. To change my beliefs and change a narrative that no longer serves me. That there is always a way. And that I am learning all the time and I can celebrate how much I already have grown.
Balance Rest Silence Do Play Remember Letting go Relax Love Be Just be
And Trust, in Life, in myself and reassure the young one in me – everything is always working out for me.
This was the Creative Conversation we had on the topic of reconciliating feminine flow and masculine structure. Enjoy and share what resonates with you 🧡
What I want to bring Who I want to be What I want to seed
Peace Courage Confidence Appreciation
Breathing in the potential Loading with curiosity I enter the day
What’s possible? What joy is brewing in the here and now? Plugging into the sensual of the body Feeling every cell vibrating Of Life Connecting to the Present To the Now Open, receptive, ready For this new day
How does it look like To receive a loving command How does it feel To deliver a loving command
Sometimes Your are not In a place Of receiving Sometimes You are In the clouds Of melancholy
What does that place ask from you? Is it being heard? What happens as you push? Does it feel better?
What happens when you pause? What do you notice? Maybe a pain Maybe a tension Who wants attention
What does it tell you? What does it need? What would happens if you Allowed it to be Just the way it is right now No pushing away No walking over it No pitying Just listening inside Gently Without force Nor demand Patiently For the child To come In its own timing Maybe it won’t come today Just be there Come back Gently present Loving her
