Unlocking Your Own Blocks & Stepping Into Authentic Leadership

I went to a seminar this past weekend called Courageous Leadership. The speaker was Dr. Will Willomen, a former Bishop of the United Methodist Church, who is currently a professor at Duke Divinity School. His candor, unique sense of humor, boldness and years of experience inspired me, motivated me, and warmed my heart. Throughout his presentation, he continued to talk about how important it is to reach out to leadership and organizational development specialists, seek their advice, and allow them to help you grow your church. As a leadership and organizational development speaker and trainer, I was absolutely delighted by how willing he was to admit where he needed help in these areas.

During one of the breaks, I went up to him and expressed that one area I have found where professionals are most resistant to my leadership speaking and coaching are religious environments. He shared that what is underneath that resistance is that they realize they are not the best at management, and it is intimidating to them. I already knew this, but it was incredibly validating to hear this from someone who has so many years of experience.

“In my book, I put together a group of tools that I believe can help anyone recognize and remove the blocks that are keeping them from regularly stepping into true authenticity, vibrancy, powerful leadership, and passionate living.”

In my book Awakening – 12 Tools To Unlock Ultimate Potential, I put together a group of tools that I believe can help anyone recognize and remove the blocks that are keeping them from regularly stepping into true authenticity, vibrancy, powerful leadership, and passionate living. This book would not have been possible if I had not received coaching and direction from many, many people over the years who have helped me recognize and get past many of my own personal and professional blocks to success and happiness.

I encourage everyone to be willing to have the courage to move past their resistance and open themselves up to the help and gifts of others. If we could all do it all, it would be a boring world.
