"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader"

 

John Quincy Adams

 

Leaders, before they can be inspirational to others, need to discover what conscious and unconscious beliefs and behaviors are at work in themselves. Everyone, including the most effective leaders, experience doubt, anxiety, fear and cynicism from their “Inner Critics”. While these doubts and fears manifest differently, because each of us has perfected unique coping strategies, the fact remains that our effectiveness as a leader is compromised. Once, through coaching, a leader becomes aware of these limiting beliefs the doorway is opened. It isn't enough to merely change the way we think or the way we behave -  it is imperative to gain an understanding and control of the patterns that govern our minds; our worldview;  our beliefs about what we deserve and what's possible -  and learn to lead from our "being".  That is the zone of fundamental transformation.   It is the core of CommonGround's coaching philosophy.
