You have a deep passion for helping others. But it's often lost behind daily urgencies, competing family demands, disappointing systemic & bureaucratic challenges, staff tension/turnover, budgetary constraints, and more.
You're ready to tap back into your purpose, restore energy, and feel more calm than chaos.
The model of infinite growth is flawed. All around us creatures and environments exist in cycles of creation, nourishment, growth, and rest. And yet, many of our business and leadership models center around non-stop growth, with success measured by more revenue, bigger budgets, more programs, more staff, more people served... More. More. More.
At home, the world the pressures us for more too, encouraging (or demanding) we spend more time caregiving, more time volunteering, get more exercise, buy more newfangled gadgets, more date nights, get more sleep... More. More. More.
The persistence of more more more is like a leaky faucet; eventually it drip drip drips beyond capacity and overflows. Or drowns. Sound familiar?
For you brave changemakers doing the critical work of putting humanity on a better path, it's time we abandon the infinite growth mindset and instead quest to achieve something more sustainable. What if in a culture where more more more drip drip drips we focus not on whether we are sinking or swimming, but how well we float?
Every living thing in the world around us requires a delicate balance of energy, resources, and environment to survive and thrive. Restorative Leadership Coaching considers these elements the foundation of what we do, and deploys them in each engagement:
In nature, anything without energy is dead. Anything that requires more energy than it can access is dying. In our organizations, energy has many synonyms (how someone 'shows up' for example), but rarely do we teach leaders and teams how to build an active practice around energy. Each of our engagements begin with The Energy Leadership™ Index assessment to gain a snapshot of how you're showing up and build a common language around energy for our engagement.
Are you extracting more than you are giving? Are you consistently 'under-resourced' and operating in scarcity mode? During our coaching sessions, we'll pay special attention to resources, both ones that can be better leveraged to improve outcomes, and the limiting beliefs holding you back.
Environmental influences are often overlooked or minimized, but, just like in nature, are critical to be aware of to thrive. Our coaching sessions are dedicated time for judgement-free exploration of what's influencing leadership and culture in your surrounding environment. Bring on all the hard things. We'll work together to build resiliency and partner to ensure navigating your biggest challenges is never a lonely venture.
