The IN™ Approach
Why Inspire Leaders From The INSIDE Out?
Although most seek to create inspiring leadership from the outside in, history has consistently demonstrated this is a false path. External tools fade with time. The most profound “outer” skills are transient at best. What is permanent is the source of unwavering confidence and wisdom that lies WITHIN.
By uniquely overlaying Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and Leadership Development “Best Practices” with our proprietary Integrative Mindfulness Model™, the IN™ Approach empowers leaders with not just breakthrough insights, tools and tactics, but also the inner foundation needed to create unwavering success no matter what challenges they may face on the road ahead. Through our diverse portfolio of programs, IN™ clients discover an unparalleled edge in maximizing performance, decreasing stress and deepening overall professional fulfillment.
How Does It Work?
Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. The are four core competencies to Emotional Intelligence: Self Awareness, Self Regulation, Social Awareness and Relationship Management. Being emotionally aware of self and others — and leveraging that awareness in managing self and relationships — is critical to professional performance and effectively leading a thriving organization.
Leadership Development “Best Practices”
Developing empowered leaders is fundamental to the health and growth of an organization. With years of hands-on experience, we provide clients “best practice” insights, tools and tactics for being an engaging and effective leader. Some of the most common leadership development competencies we help clients master include, but are not limited to, executive presence, influencing up and down, strategic thinking, innovation, emotional intelligence, team leadership, workday performance, relationship building, time management, organizational politics, communication, change leadership, managing conflict, problem solving, and self confidence.
Our Integrative Mindfulness Model™
Our proprietary Integrative Mindfulness Model™ (IMM) focuses on bridging the practice of mindful awareness and workplace performance. The IMM model consist of three primary practices: 1) Contextual Clearing 2) Awareness Gathering 3) Affirmative Visioning. These practices are both mutually exclusive and exponentially sequential. Mutually exclusive in that any one pillar can create transformative thought and behavioral shift within itself. Exponentially sequential that the net effect of practicing these pillars in sequence becomes exponential in experience. The following is an overview each practice and what it looks like in the context of one’s workday.
- Contextual Clearing
The objective of this practice is to “sweep” out the thoughts, judgments, beliefs or other mental distractions that cloud us from our most optimized state. This practice can take many forms from breathing techniques and guided visualizations to a comprehensive meditation practice. No matter which practice one chooses, the outcome is a leader with greater clarity, wisdom and prudence in their choices and actions.
- Awareness Gathering
The objective of this practice is to see the reality of a situation, relationship, or challenge so we can better assess the best course of action. When we make decisions without first separating the facts from our story about the facts, our decisions are at best based on a skewed perspective of reality, if not an all out fantasy. Most ineffective leaders rest on assumptions that often lead to gaps in their logic. This practice shores up those gaps and ensures an effective and safe passage towards one’s goals.
- Affirmative Visioning
The objective of this practice is to drive the intention of one’s vision so as to eradicate retrograde motion. It is human to focus on the past (moving backward) when we think we are focusing on the future (moving forward). Affirmative visioning is a practice by which we pull ourselves forward, free of the undermining thoughts that keep most in a static “mud.” When one outwardly affirms their vision, they create subconscious relationship to that vision, which as a byproduct inspires greater action, follow-through and outcome.
