Introduction to Stories in Self-Knowledge



What is the consensus #1 problem in leadership today?

I’ll answer it for you in the next 3 minutes!
 
Over the past decade, I have had the privilege of spending the majority of my time abroad. It’s been an interesting time as I write to you now from Manila Bay in the Philippines. While intermittent consciousness, dreaming, and "shock and awe" have all been partners, mostly what I thought I knew, was a limited version of naiveté.
 
While along this path, I’ve had the opportunity to work with great clients from around the world, who have helped teach me most of what I’ve needed to learn.  The process continues, gratefully.
 
For the past 3 years, after launching my Book @F-L-O-W, I’ve sought to create a postmodern leader development process for those people that have begin to run into walls of (mis)understanding about how they are in the world.

NEVER has there been a time where leadership demands are so "big."
 
Turmoil around the world has sensitized almost anyone and everyone to the ideas that things are not what they used to be, and  our Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous "VUCA" world is not a place to visit for the fainthearted.
 
I’m putting the finishing touches on a program for leader coaches, consultants and managers, and I want some "early adopters" present when I outline it during an Inner Circle retreat in San Antonio, Texas, December 12-14.  Learn more HERE.

In this intensive 3 days, I’ll show you what almost 30 years of professional coaching has influenced me in how to be, do, have, become, and contribute as a leader.  For you, as someone who consults, coaches, develops, and trains leaders in a postmodern world, I will open the door to new revenue, insights, and relationships as you can bolt on the entire system to your present work.
 
I’m going to follow this "experience" with a year-long virtual program which opens-up the detail involved in understanding vertical, oblique, and lateral leadership development — named VOLume (for Vertical, Oblique, Lateral "U" and "ME").

For those who are fans of Don Beck, Robert Kegan, Susanne Cook-Greuter, Spiral Dynamics, Integral, Elliott Jaques, Gallup Talent, MBTI, or new cutting edge development, this is your cup of tea; as we’ll show you the gateway to the to the 7th Level, or Second Tier Leader Development during 3 Intimate Days of Development, Coaching, and Dialogue in an Inner Circle with BEHAVIORAL MetaDYNAMICS.
 
The value proposition is simple, and it goes like this:
 
Most leaders today are "stuck" on themselves and what to do when confronted with VUCA conditions. I admit, it’s easy to just get a "deer in the headlights" feeling and wait for the problems to solve us. However, I found a key leverage point called "Self-Knowledge" that is a precursor to:

 The #1 Problem for Leaders: SELF-AWARENESS –>
 
"When the 75 members of the Stanford Graduate School of Business’s Advisory Council were asked to recommend the most important capability for leaders to develop, their answer was nearly unanimous: self awareness." (Bill George, HBR, Feb 2007).
 
Without making this note too long, I’ve codified a system that serves as a platform for not only SELF-KNOWLEDGE leading to enhanced SELF-AWARENESS, but a program that an individual, team, or company can apply in time and over time to take charge of their own "individual leadership development", which can solve leadership’s #1 Problem: SELF-AWARENESS!
 
What more than a quarter century of global developmental coaching has revealed are a set of tools that are "different" than what we grew up understanding and have now in most of our toolkits. The past quarter century has seen adult development, integral studies, and spiral dynamics rise out of academia, coalesce into models that are now being commercialized, and are now available as a part of the the VUCA Leader’s Toolkit.
 
Bottom Line?
 
I’ve worked with all of the adult developmental models intimately for more than a decade, conducting my own primary research around the world with clients and can –> in less than 3 days, bring you up to speed with these tools and how and "where" to use them to improve your current methods and technologies for leader development — yours and others.

You don’t have to learn anything, but you have to know where to learn what you need to know.
 
In one year of "programmed experiential exposure", you’ll learn what took me more than a decade to grok, and together we’ll stand on the shoulders of these developmental giants to help you learn, grow, and develop YOURSELF, and others around you.
 
Our Mandate!
 
We are staring into the abyss, and as the world fragments around us, we need NEW EXPLANATIONS and DIFFERENT WAYS to help people MAKE SENSE out of what is going on around them. The majority of our problems today can be easily summed up at the MetaLEVEL as the discontinuity between worldviews brought about by VUCA and differences in DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES of reason and valuing.
 
Can it be so simple?
 
Actually, yes!
 
There is a simplicity on the "other" side of complexity which I can reveal to you which can help you grok the "discontinuities of a postmodern world." It’s like the old FRAM commercial in comparison… you can pay for it now, or pay for it later in lost wages, declining productivity, unsatisfied clients, or fleeting happiness.
 
2015 is going to be an UNBELIEVABLE year… like mentor Tom Hopkins used to say when someone asked you how you are doing; the answer is UNBELIEVABLE, because it works in any situation.
 
If you are looking for a "short-cut" to understanding how the world is really coming apart, join me live or virtually in December as we kick off 2015, your year of development. If self-awareness is the number one key to leveraging your life, work, and play over time, my gift to you is a "Developmental Occam’s Razor."
 
For a limited time, I’m offering my new EXPOSÉ titled BEHAVIORAL MetaDYNAMICS which outlines the major components and tools for leadership and organizational development in our VUCA-AGE. Just click HERE to tell me where to send this outline, if you have’t yet received it.

PS: Unfortunately, seats are limited as this is not a dog and pony show with "sales at the back of the room" but an intimate, intensive gathering which is didactic and embedded with experiential learning. I’ll be demonstrating how to apply the tools in example coaching and consulting sessions, as well as giving advice on next steps to participants on how to get the most from the use of these tools over the course of the next year. I’ll meet with each of you to help you outline a step by step process for your own embedded development, along with 3 short virtual coaching sessions in 2015, included with the program.
 
Here is my guarantee, if you don’t agree that this experience exceeds your expectations, just request a refund and I’ll refund the money you have paid within 30 days, no questions asked. Travel, meal, and hotel costs are not included and various programs are offered a la carte, as well as in combination to fit individual circumstances.

Video tapes of the retreat are available for those unable to attend but want to attend the virtual program in 2015. For the first time, Video in Executive Summary Format as well as raw long-play video are offered of the retreat experience. Learn wherever you are!
