Times have changed.

The personal transformation of leaders is what will sustain corporate success. Corporate transformation and personal transformation are inextricably linked. The obvious truth many have lost sight of is that organizations cannot change if their people don't change.

In the age of “Me Too” and other social justice movements, it is critical for corporate leadership to be flexible and adapt quickly. Leaders can no longer afford to ignore how their actions impact others – within their organization and beyond.

As change efforts amplify and the work environment becomes more complex and diverse, building bridges that strengthen vital connections as well as personal transformation will be key to gaining and sustaining a competitive advantage

It is not enough to take responsibility solely for results and tasks. You must also take responsibility for your emotions and behaviors and those of your employees. You are as accountable for the impact of your behavior as you are for business results. It’s time to shift unconscious patterns and foster Aware Leadership within your organization.
