Ready to dip your toe in the Five Cs?

Chances are good that if you’re in a position of leadership, it’s not uncommon to feel the weight of the world on your shoulders on a regular basis. People are counting on you to get things done, meet milestones, put out fires, exceed expectations, and much, much more.

Let’s be honest — even leaders need guidance sometimes. And that’s where The Five Cs of Confident Leadership comes in — Communication, Clarity, Connection, Community and Courage.

Developed by ConsciousLead, the following is an insightful, thought-provoking snapshot of the deep, far-reaching work that is done during the Five Cs of Confident Leadership Program offered by Dale Allen and Trevor Stevenson, co-founders of ConsciousLead.

When we are stressed, our body and mind are in WTF mode (flight, fight, freeze, faint) and this leaves little ease, room, and patience to see if there is, in fact, a real tiger trying to eat us. 

By balancing the four elements in your life, you will create space for the more important things. This means you’ll have more time to spend living, loving, and enjoying life. The new found space also creates opportunities to learn healthy ways to respond to stressful situations. 

There’s a big, smelly, elephant in the room that’s been sucking up all of the oxygen and we think it’s time to speak to it directly. This elephant attended diversity training but, somehow, still manages to discriminate, make racial slurs and keep everyone walking on eggshells around matters of social justice. All right, enough about the poor elephant. We truly love elephants!

This is not a lesson in anti-isms–racism, genderism, sexism, classism, ageism–and any new ones that may be added to the list. Neither is it about creating new and better labels; those have never been our thing and are, quite frankly, part of the problem. We’re going to get you and your team to the bottom of what’s been wearing us down as a society, holding us back and obstructing our path toward inclusivity and peace.

The matter of achieving global equality is pressing and as citizens of this world, we have a responsibility to one another to take a firm stand against racism, ageism, genderism and all other hurtful “isms” that continue to suppress people, invalidate their existence, and obstruct us on our journey toward a more just and inclusive society.

Whether at home, at work, or in line at the grocery store, you have the opportunity to add beauty to the world!  The way we think shapes the words we speak, and the words we speak can either bring harm or harmony to ourselves and others.

So you’ve read all the blogs, practiced self-reflection, experienced coaching, continue to apply what you’ve learned and leveled up your communication skills as a result. Bravo! You are, indeed, a fearless leader who is ready to set sights on the next frontier!

Do you ever feel like a cloud is following you around, tracking your every move, dampening your joy? For many right now, the biggest cloud is COVID-19 and all of the life-altering changes that it has brought along. What may make coping with these changing times even more difficult is the fact that you may have had pre-existing clouds before this one arrived. Whatever your pre-existing cloud, whatever the reason for its dreary persistence, the one thing that is certain is that you would love nothing more than to get out from under it and harness a sense of control in this time of uncertainty.

To make this happen, we’re offering you three effective steps accompanied by reflection questions designed to empower you to part that cloud, escape from its looming shadow, and swap your clunky, inside-out umbrella for a pair of badass shades amidst all of the chaos!

Leadership is not linear or one-dimensional. Instead, it is multi-faceted, nuanced, individual and surprisingly complex. Going far beyond the traditional interpretation of leadership as something that is strategic and situational, The Conscious Leadership Experience (CLE) endeavours to awaken your consciousness by connecting your thoughts and intentions to your behaviour. Led by life’s coaches, Dale Allen and Trevor Stevenson of ConsciousLead, the CLE reveals that leading by example is the only way to effectively lead, and this means leading from within.

By adopting this method, you will garner the support you need from your team to create a healthy work environment, keeping them unified and fearless in times of triumph and challenge. You will achieve this by making your unconscious thoughts, speech and actions conscious processes. You will lead others in a way that is compassionate, constructive and courageous.

Reframing changes your viewpoint of how a situation is experienced. It allows you to observe the situation inside of another “frame,” in which only the facts are the focus. You can discard assumptions, inferences, and judgments with the goal of increasing the number of options available to respond to the situation. Download our Reframing Exercise and experience these benefits:

  • Brain friendly – stops knee-jerk reactions
  • Observe your patterns and habits of thought
  • Reframe your experience
  • Learn how to tell different stories about situations

Did you know that your communication (thinking and speaking) impacts mental health?

Conscious Communication skills allow you to learn important life skills. You create the habit of connecting, interacting, expressing and receiving messages even when things are challenging, in a way that creates an environment where people:

  • feel safe to have these natural ups and downs
  • know how to communicate in ways that keeps them moving forward
  • understand about dynamics between people and how to navigate these dynamics in healthy ways
  • learn how to dissolve destructive emotions for themselves and with others

We can’t motivate others. We can create an environment that is motivating for others.

When your work life is busy both stress and tension can rise.  It can be easy to get caught up in the day-to-day noise of how busy you are: deadlines, meetings, and endless emails, bringing the opportunity for conflicts and power struggles to rise with it.

It’s always important to take the time to celebrate efforts as well as milestones. Appreciating even the smallest details can do wonders for morale and engagement, at work and at home.

The answer is yes.

The truth is we are all under-performing. Whether you choose to call it “under-performing”  or “endless untapped potential”, the reality is, we all have a next level, either known or unknown to us.

When you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. But what do you do when you want something new, and don’t know what needs to change?

Vision taps into meaningful standards of working together that people care deeply about.  All of this requires input from the whole team, so that everyone sees themselves in the vision.

A learning conversation does not assume that anything is wrong with the other person. What it does imply is that there are gifts and skills they can learn to make their life more easeful, productive and satisfying. In a learning conversation, you help people:

1. take full, healthy responsibility for their (work) life
2. make commitments and goals tied to their future
3. practice these commitments and goals

Download this handy PDF worksheet on how to create a learning conversation.

What if you could recognize fears as they occur, and learn how to address them in yourself and others? Wouldn’t that free up a lot of energy? We could experience more ease as we grow.

Organizations and teams follow predictable patterns of behaviour because they are made up of people acting out a story.  And stories have a pattern.
