I am a genuine, high-powered and visionary leader, the source of energy and hope achieving successful transformations.
In 2007, I was privileged to participate in the Executive Challenge Course (ECC) organized by Gap International. The course is a nine-month process during which you engage in transformational activities with peers guided by excellent coaches. “The Executive Challenge Course is designed to deliver extraordinary business results, accelerated executive growth and substantial value to an organization. The program offers a proven pathway for executives, leaders and entrepreneurs to produce a breakthrough in their results. It is built to accelerate executive growth by enabling leaders to achieve an extraordinary outcome in their business”. This is what Gap International promises and stands behind. They are not kidding. Five years after the training, and on the road to leadership excellence, I am still using most of the skills learned in this training. I have also sent many of my executives to breakthrough intensive training and to ECC.
One of the activities of the program is to define a personal and powerful leadership stand. Here is my leadership stand:
“I am a genuine, high-powered and visionary leader, the source of energy and hope achieving successful transformations”.
I talk, walk, live and breathe my leadership stand.
Now, this is not a walk in the park. During the training process, the coaches teach you about the power of words and how to use words to convey powerful messages and meanings. Each word in this leadership stand is precisely selected, thoroughly discussed, and mindfully weaved with the rest of the words. During the design process, Gap International coaches help you define it by asking transformational profound questions of who you really are and what you aspire to achieve. That stand is a representation of yourself, your values, your aspirations and your leadership goals. If crafted carefully and mindfully, it can follow you for the rest of your personal and professional lives. Ii is a reflection of what you want to accomplish in life whether at home, at work, in your community or anywhere else.
I have framed this stand and it speaks loud and clear wherever I go. I discuss it with people and engage them in personal conversations during my coaching with compassion sessions. I talk, walk, live and breathe my leadership stand. I strive to be a source of energy and inspiration for people. I generate hope in them by showing a patch to success and to greater achievements. I help individuals and organizations achieve successful transformations by acting genuinely, by being decisive and by designing powerful visions. I care about their success.
I recommend you define your leadership stand. Check the ECC program as well. It will change the way to think, act and lead.
