"Love is helping other people to complete themselves" Bill O'Brien
What I’ve noticed is that those who are most impacting in this area, are the ones who most authentically work from purpose and service, whilst simultaneously engaging in their own learning and growth through that very work.
And I’ve come to see the territory of this work as following two paths and spanning three domains.
- of being more Conscious
- of greater Service
The three domains are:
- Others or team
- System or something bigger
The three domains are mutually catalytic – deepening in one creates pull towards or opening up the others.
Time and again I see the leaders I work with moving between these domains and weaving through the different paths. Sometimes there is value in, or a need to, look at one more discretely than the others, although it nearly always makes sense to check in with all eventually. When clients push themselves too far into one domain or along a singular path at the exclusion of the others, it leads to imbalance, frustration, and a sense of something missing.
If this resonates and matters to you then I’m interested in talking further. I work as a systemic leadership sherpa providing coaching and facilitation for leaders and teams. With me alongside, this journeying comes with both gentleness and uncomfortableness, weaving through spaces of knowing and not knowing, uncertainty and sure footedness, travelling together in support of you being more conscious and of greater service.
