    Ethical Leadership - Quantum Physics of Beliefs

    in Self Help

    Ethical Leadership


    Radio Talk, December 27, 2014 @ 8PM CST


    Leadership is a privilege and a responsibility that demands a good deal from those who practice it, whether formally or informally. High on that list of demands is the need to be ethical, both in personal life and in leadership. Because leaders are role models whether they choose to be or not, they set the tone for the ethical stance of their individual followers, of the organization or group they lead, and, to some extent, of the larger community.


    Ethical behavior, in its simplest terms, is knowing and doing what is right.


    WHAT IS ETHICAL LEADERSHIP?


     


    WHY PRACTICE ETHICAL LEADERSHIP?


    WHEN AND BY WHOM SHOULD ETHICAL LEADERSHIP BE PRACTICED?


    HOW DO YOU PRACTICE ETHICAL LEADERSHIP?


    WHAT ARE SOME SPECIFIC COMPONENTS OF ETHICAL LEADERSHIP?


    NEVER STOP REEXAMINING YOUR ETHICS AND YOUR LEADERSHIP.

    Servant Leadership - Round Table - Quantum Physics of Beliefs

    Servant Leadership - Round Table Discussion


    December 20, 2014 – Radio Show @ 8pm CST


    "The King (leader) shall consider as good, not what pleases himself but what pleases his subjects (followers)." ~ Chanakya aka Kautilya, in his book – Arthashastra from 4th century BCE


    "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you, instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of God did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many." ~ Mark 10: 42-45



    WHAT ARE THE QUALITIES OF THE SERVANT LEADER?
    HOW DO YOU BECOME A SERVANT LEADER?
    HOW DOES A SERVANT LEADER FIND INSPIRATION?


    An excellent example of a servant leader is Ernest Shackleton, the early 20th century explorer who, after his ship became frozen in the Antarctic life, brought every one of his 27 crew home alive, including an 800 mile journey in open boats across the winter Antarctic seas. It took two years, but Shackleton's sense of responsibility towards his men never wavered.

    Challenges of Spiritual Leadership - Quantum Physics of Beliefs

    in Self Help

    Realizing the Challenges of Spiritual Leadership


    Radio Talk, December 13, 2014 @ 8 pm CST


    Spiritual leadership involves intrinsically motivating and inspiring your teams through hope/faith in a vision of service to key stakeholders and a corporate culture based on the values of altruistic love to produce a highly motivated, committed and productive workforce.


    Today many individuals are struggling with what their spirituality means for their work since this is where they spend vast majority of their waking hours. The office is now where more and more people eat, exercise, date, drop their kids, and even nap.


    Because of this, a major change is taking place in the personal and professional lives of leaders as many of them more deeply integrate their spirituality and their work.


    There is an old saying that you can’t lead others if you can’t lead yourself. It is therefore difficult, if not impossible, to implement organizational spiritual leadership without strong personal spiritual leadership.

    How Leaders Can Transform for Change


    Radio Talk, December 06, 2014 @ 8pm CST


    When we fall short of making permanent lifestyle modifications, we take comfort in the belief that, if we really wanted to change, we could alter our behaviors.


    Contrary to what we have been historically taught, I believe we have the power to control our experience of life, we don’t have to prove we are worthy to have the right to life, and we are not naturally immoral.


    When asked what keeps them up at night, CEOs involved in transformation often say they are concerned about how the work force will react, how they can get their team to work together, and how they will be able to lead their people.


    Leadership teams that fail to plan for the human side of change often find themselves wondering why and where their best-laid out plans have gone fruitless.

    Trust - Quantum Physics of Beliefs

    in Self Help

    Language of Trust


    Radio Talk, November 29, 2014 @ 8pm CST


    "To be persuasive we must be believable.


    To be believable we must be credible.


    To be credible we must be Truthful." ~ Edward R. Murrow


    At this time of economic upheaval and political transition, TRUST is an issue that's front and center more than ever.


    Fragile TRUST is a hidden variable – lurking beneath the surface as it slows down processes and drives up costs.


    Why does this occur? A primary reason is that most people still regard trust as just a nice to have social virtue and don't yet understand trust as an issue they can do something about explicitly, deliberately, and quantitatively.


    Disengaged employees are enormously expensive. Engagement flows out of TRUST, and TRUST flows out of engagement. They are mutually reinforcing.


    Engaging people's heads, hearts, and hopes is all about relationships of mutual purpose, mutual respect, and mutual TRUST.

    Authentic Leadership - Quantum Physics of Beliefs

    Authentic Leadership


    Radio Talk, November 22, 2014 @ 8pm Chicago Time


    Authentic leadership is a product of honesty.


    Authentic leadership is also a product of clarity.


    We become what we want to be by being what we want to become.


    Becoming an authentic leader requires day-to-day focus and lifelong commitment to self-discovery.


    Authenticity = Trust


    Authentic leadership is all about trust.


    Can our people trust us to tell them the truth?


    Can our people trust us to stake out a path that is for the best good of everyone, not just us?


    Can our people trust us to accept feedback and even criticism without getting defensive or, worse, engaging in retribution?


    Can they trust us to give them the resources they need to do the work we demand?


     


    It was Mahatma Gandhi who said, "The moment there is a suspicion about a person's motives, everything he does becomes tainted."

    How Do You Pray? Inspirational Responses from Lovers of Humanity

    in Spirituality

    How we pray is as diverse as each being on our planet. What do we say? Do we even need to speak? What of our thoughts?


    How do you express your prayer? Do you know when you pray?


    Prayer is not necessarily done at a specific time or in a special place.


    How you pray is unique to YOU. Are you even aware of when and how you pray? We pray more than we realize. How do YOU pray?


    Healers, Activists & Other Lovers of


    Humanity (Monkfish Book Publishing, July 2014) was born from a


    vision in which Celeste Yacoboni was guided to ask the world, “How


    do you pray?” She reached out to family and friends, then to leading


    figures from all walks of life and schools of thought. Culled from


    those responses is an original and deeply personal collection of


    prayers, essays, and offerings that encourages readers to contemplate


    the intention of prayer in their own life.


    Composed essentially of prayers and short biographies of its 129


    contributors (leaders of diverse spiritual and religious traditions


    ranging from Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who


    do not claim any particular walk of faith), How Do You Pray? is an


    interspiritual prayer book and resource guide to an emerging global


    spirituality, which embraces our religious and spiritual diversity.


    Contributors include Brother David Steindl-Rast, Matthew Fox,


    Gregg Braden, Dan Millman, Huston Smith, Byron Katie, Marianne


    Williamson, Margaret Starbird, Lama Surya Das, Andrew Harvey,


    Terry Tempest Williams, Alex Grey, Masaru Emoto, Arvol Looking


    Horse, Patch Adams, Roshi Joan Halifax, Rabbi Zalman Schacter-


    Shalomi, Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, James O’Dea,


    Hank Wesselman, Fr. Bede Griffiths, and many other luminous


    voices of spirit.
