Higher Ground Leadership
Values Centered Leadership MASTERY: What must we do well in order to accomplish objectives? What must we LEARN to achieve the necessary MASTERY? CHEMISTRY: To achieve goals, who will be on the team? How will we build Relationships and inspire each other? With whom should we EMPATHIZE? DELIVERY: Whom are we serving? How will we know that we have met their Needs? To whom and how will we LISTEN? *Secretan, Lance (2010). The Spark, the Flame, and the Torch, the Secretan Center, Inc. Caledon, Ontario, Canada
Spark, Flame, Torch What is your destiny statement? Your spark? Passion is drawn to things that excite us –positively and negatively At our core, we all yearn to serve and improve the world Secretan, Lance ( 2010). The Spark, Flame and the Torch: Inspire Self, Inspire Others. Inspire the World. The Secretan Center, Caledon, Ontario, Canada
Destiny Write down two things that spoil the world for you and that hold the potential to threaten or wound the world and to cause serious global damage if we do not change or reverse them. Now write the opposite of these words. The exact opposite – now craft these terrafixes into a statement that describes how you wish to dedicate your life –what the future holds for you depends on what you hold for the future. Secretan, Lance ( 2010). The Spark, Flame and the Torch: Inspire Self, Inspire Others. Inspire the World. The Secretan Center, Caledon, Ontario, Canada
Character What is your character –how do you want to BE in the world? How do you wish to live your life? What qualities do you want to live by so that they are inspiring beacon and model for others? How do you want to be remembered at the end of your life? How do you hope that others will describe your character? Secretan, Lance ( 2010). The Spark, Flame and the Torch: Inspire Self, Inspire Others. Inspire the World. The Secretan Center, Caledon, Ontario, Canada
Calling The true gifts and skills to which my heart is called are……. The work I do today needs more…….. The livelihood that would best serve my essential self is….. What must I do to ensure the intersection of my talents and passion serves the needs of the world, and thus guides my current path? Secretan, Lance ( 2010).

Leaders and Renewal* 1. Leaders who are happy and doing meaningful work engage in a high level of personal renewal. They make time for activities that make them happy so they have more energy to "show up" to create results and have a positive impact on the organization. 2. Leaders who are happy and doing meaningful work are extraordinarily resilient. They bounce back from failure and they bounce forward in times of change. 3. Leaders who are happy and doing meaningful work are optimistic. They face harsh realities and brutal truths but they feel empowered to do something about it. * Reeves, Douglas & Allison, Elle (2009). Renewal Coaching: Sustainable Change for Individuals and Organizations: Jossey Bass, San Francisco, CA.
Leaders and Renewal* 4. Leaders who are happy and doing meaningful work give a little more than they take. We say they have high levels of "reciprocity.“ 5. Leaders who are happy and doing meaningful work have cultivated networks of relationships that they inspire toward supporting and sustaining the best work of the organization. These leaders secure and keep "buy in.“ 6. Leaders who are happy and doing meaningful work make wise and timely decisions. They resist over generalization and are not "in love" with their own data. 7. Leaders who are happy and doing meaningful work are highly resonant. They create positive force fields of emotion and energy that inspire hope, compassion, and action within the organization. These leaders are emotionally intelligent * Reeves, Douglas & Allison, Elle (2009). Renewal Coaching: Sustainable Change for Individuals and Organizations: Jossey Bass, San Francisco, CA.
