Presence is fully being in the moment and consciously choosing self-awareness to invite and inspire self and others for mindful actions or non-actions resulting in impactful results.
Shifting mindsets from egocentric to service centric.
The secret to personal fulfillment lies in our ability to break free of self-imposed constraints created by a mind habituated to its routines. Learn to create full alignment of mind, heart, spirit and instincts and experience the extraordinary human greatness.
Shifting mindsets from ‘that is how it has always been’ to ‘living in possibilities’.

Are you running on overdrive with candle burning on both ends and experiencing a sense of dissatisfaction? Predominant cause for dissatisfaction is lack of alignment and meaning. Inherently we are not afraid of ‘Doing’ but rarely have the time to slow down and take deliberate steps towards ‘Being’ – a quality critical for participating in shaping the future. When ‘Doing’ predominates the culture, it brings more of the same, adding to the chaos without providing any real breakthroughs. However, when ‘Being’ predominates the culture, there is immense courage, fearlessness, trust, wisdom, meaning and alignment to fully participate in shaping the future with compassion, accountability and responsibility.
The simplest way to describe being is the level of awareness and alignment with personal core values. When individuals bring their whole selves to work and they are BEING driven by their core values and such BEINGNESS exemplifies positive behaviors, which in turn impacts the team, the team impacts the climate and the climate impacts the culture. Transformation an inside out job that begins with BEING and has a far-reaching impact on the triple bottom line.
To help understand whole systems within an organization, it is important to look at an organization as a living organism with infinitely complex patterns. They are created by repetition of a simple process over and over again. Similar to individual habits, organizations have complex habits that show up as unspoken rules, drama, politics and positive values and limiting values.
To create a change in the whole systems, it is imperative to understand that organizational transformation begins with the personal transformation of the leaders. Organizations don’t transform, until individuals transform. What is the smallest step you can take to create a change in the whole system?
The key difference between an ordinary leader and transformational leader is the ability to know and intervene in the highest leverage point within a system. Most tools used for problem solving are geared towards the outer two layers of ‘Doing’ and ‘Thinking,’ whether it is increasing, decreasing or enhancing what is. However, any change made to the outermost layer can refine or fine tune the results at the most. In other words, more ‘Doing’ and ‘Thinking’ from the same mindset will ultimately create more of what has been. “Doing’ is highly effective in putting out fires. ‘Thinking’ on the other hand is effective in preventing fires for the most part, especially if those fires have been dealt with before. When the results of ‘Visioning’ are communicated effectively throughout the organization, it expedites achievement of desired results. ‘Being’ brings about clarity and focus empowering confidence in shaping the future. ‘Being’ has a ripple effect from the inside out and impacts the quality of thinking and doing.
