What is a Calling and How Do I Find Mine? article articles by larissa articles by nick calling leadership meaning through work purpose sensing Sep 01, 2022

Why a Calling Versus a Purpose, Vision, or Mission?

Any mission-oriented organization and any values-led leadership team will emphasize the importance of a purpose and a mission.

These statements are important symbols in an organization. They help organize the ideas, efforts, and imagination of an organization towards a goal that is often inherently service oriented.

At Wayfinding, we emphasize the importance of a calling because to pursue a calling is to be in relationship with it. It asks us to be in tune with our embodied sensing as we navigate the internal and external signals that make...

“We need time to rehabilitate from the trauma of the pandemic” as Dr. David Rock, CEO of the NeuroLeadership Institute, wrote in the Harvard Business Review in February. This is a crucial pattern for all leaders and teams to take note of with many more contributing factors than just the pandemic.

It's notable when I have a moment when I'm having the same conversation across all my clients. 
This is one of those moments.

Here are some factors contributing to why we’re seeing such a widespread pattern:

5 Things I Learned About Amplifying My Power from Vital Leadership articles by rich power reviews sensing vital leadership Feb 01, 2022

 

I was terrified of remembering my power because I have abused it before. 

So when I received the offer to become part of Vital Leadership, I experienced huge inner resistance. Flashbacks of power abuse where I was the perpetrator came flooding in. Guilt towered over me, heaving rocks of shame. I was caught up in a storm, and I was drowning in a sea of fear.

 

If I get to remember my power, will I be intoxicated again?

 

But if I don’t trust myself to be capable of wielding my power for good, how am I supposed to support my team in creating systems for ...

The simplest answer to the title question is: it depends on you. 

Intuition presents itself in a wide range of ways for me. In this article I’ll share examples of the sensations presented with leaders of innovation that I interviewed to give you a sense for what you too might be unknowingly experiencing in the workplace. 

If there are skeptics in your life (or maybe it’s your own voice in your head) that says “it’s JUST a feeling” you’re not alone. The dominant culture many of us grow up in emphasize our use of intellect as the most valid...

Part 1 - Why explore intuition as a leader? alchemical leadership articles by nick intuition sensing transformation wayfinding Jan 24, 2022

Practically speaking…

Intuition is a source of power and I want to make it more accessible to leaders. As we practice living with our intuition we become more whole, as family members, as partners, as teammates and as whole human beings seeking to do good in the world.

I have been exploring the depths of intuition since 2017. Both academically as part of completing my Masters in Positive Psychology & Org Development at Weatherhead School of Management as well as in the field with client-leaders looking to transform culture and introduce more sensing-based capacities into their...

Into the Bones // Digesting 2021 aliveness article power rest sensing vulnerability Dec 17, 2021

The end of the year invites us into our bones.

Whether it's landing our learnings in our bones, being grateful for life's blessings down to our marrow, feeling stripped to the bone by challenges, turning inward to nourish ourselves at the bone level, having the desire to curl up and rest our bones... May we listen and learn from the bones.

Here's a conversation Larissa and Nick had recently to land their learnings and sensing of 2021 in their bones.

Nick: Would you mind inviting me into the house that you speak from when you talk to this community in our newsletters? 

Larissa: Yeah,...

Intro to the Phases of Wayfinding leadership power sensing transformation wayfinding Dec 10, 2021

 

Wayfinding is not only the name of our organization and the signature system I’ve been contemplating, embodying, and weaving to find my way and support others finding their way in life, leadership, and organizational evolution. It is also a long-standing human skill that has existed across time and still exists in rich cultural traditions.

 
Wayfinding is our ability to find our way to places we have maybe never been before, or to places that we have been, but on a different day, as a different self, in a different time, and so in that way, too, they can be new.
