Life may be a journey rather than a destination. But it’s OK to make plans.
The path to change, personal or global, isn’t necessarily easy and it doesn’t come in a book or a classroom. While the knowledge may make you smarter, only action can make you better. That’s why Leadership Zen relies instead on what we call contagious practice, with the emphasis first on changing how we perceive the world and ultimately how we interact with it. When we believe that anything is possible, we no longer limit ourselves in terms of the things we go after. When we teach that perspective to others, we change the world.
In this way, Leadership Zen is a Humanist philosophy, emphasizing reason and the power of the individual to control their own destiny and to potentially affect those of others through influence and inspiration of their own personalities. The model is relatively simple:
Curiosity and a sense of Possibility are the fuel that drives the future.
Never compromise the power of your values or your dreams.
The best catalyst for change is to foster others’ sense of themselves.
The actions of a few inspired people can change the world.
Leadership Zen is more than an idea or a philosophy. It is a movement – a fledgling one but one whose time has come. As a practice it can change your life, helping you to overcome biases about the world and what you are capable of achieving within it. At its best, it can help you become a catalyst for transforming the rest of us.
So take a look, and join us in changing the world, one life at a time. Why not start with yours?
