FIFTEEN


Leaders of tomorrow-if they are to be at all-will be subtle, embodied & responsive.

Their leadership knowledge beyond measure.

Because it is beyond measure, all we can do

Is describe their behavior.

Connected in relationship to all things

Yet standing alone.

Exploring the depths of the outer

While plumbing the space of the inner

Until outer and inner become one.

Far beyond flatland.

ONE


Leadership that can be fully explained is never True Leadership.

An element of mystery must remain.

Methods of Leading People that can be completely understood

are not the eternal Way of Leading People.

"Wordless" is the beginning & end of True Leadership.

Leadership begins with words.

The door to endless mystery.

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on somatics, body, mind body, spirtuality, embodied, leadership, and earth

"A basic, albeit often overlooked fact of leadership is that we all exist

in the physical realm. Each of us comes into this life with a body. We live

and die in our bodies. What happens to us either before our births or after

our deaths is the subject for philosophies and religions. The fact remains

that, while we walk the Earth, everything that happens to us is an embodied

experience. Though obvious, this truth has been completely ignored by

most leadership strategies. Instead, those strategies have focused almost

exclusively on thoughts and ideas, as if people were simply heads floating

around in space."

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on emotional intelligence, leadership, integral, harmony, emotions, engagement, and organizations

"Harmonious Emotional Engagement is the tool that allows leaders to take

full advantage of these three simple but profound principles:


People respond emotionally to every situation that occurs in an
organization.

People's negative emotions reduce their performance in an organization.

People's positive emotions enhance their performance in an organization."

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on wendy palmer, aikido, martial arts, leadership, and integral leadership

 

"Leadership is at once obvious and mysterious. Like Aikido, leadership

is a mind-body-spirit discipline calling us to create conditions that allow

others to contribute effectively and whole-heartedly. From childhood to

old age, leadership is a function that touches all of our lives, offering endless

opportunities to refine our capacity to lead and be led."

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on leadership, aikido, blame, and shame

 

"As leaders, we can waste energy assigning blame for the escalating complexities

of today's leadership challenges, or we can begin to find solutions."
