As leaders forge their team forward in these extraordinary circumstances, they are also moving closer towards opposing forces that will test their commitment — uncertain market forces; resistant energies; more confusion and lack of vision. Crisis leadership is not for the faint hearted; nor is it for the impulsive, hasty and reckless. The problems facing leaders are notoriously intense. They are expected to decide with courage through a brutal series of volatile changes happening in their environment and with their people.
Hence, whatever the goal is, leaders must build both ambition and vision in it. There is a dance happening in the intersection of both the ego and soul of leadership that’s coming to play as the world is reset by a crisis. Cherry calls this mystical force of leaders the Dance of Grace. With grace, leaders learn to anticipate the future with fierce resolve and face ambiguity with higher consciousness. They build into their plans the kind of resources they will need to win through people and with them. The bodies start to adapt and the mind toughens. When the mind and body are disciplined to move with passion even through the chaos, the great neural coupling happens and there is awakening that unfolds. This session is fueled by Cherry’s tons of NLP power to express the soul of leadership that is magically emerging to heal and lead the collective.
