Working hard for something we don't care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.

More about the program

Effective, impactful, and transformative leadership and coaching in today’s rapidly changing world requires new kinds of skills and tools as well as broader capacities for awareness and perception. These new skills and capacities stretch far beyond the core competencies and analytical, knowledge-based approaches of traditional leadership and coaching into more creative, discovery-based, transformational approaches.

Today, we need leaders and coaches who are:

  • able to sense, feel, and listen to the energy underneath what is happening in order to discover what is next
  • comfortable in not knowing the answers—and maybe not even yet knowing which questions to ask
  • curious and imaginative
  • willing to explore without knowing what they will find, yet trust that clues for their next step will appear
  • not afraid to take action once they sense what the next step is
  • comfortable with who they are and fully embrace their own talents, skills, and gifts, while, at the same time, are committed to continued learning and growth

We need leaders and coaches who recognize that everything is connected to everything else—who embody the understanding that the world is built on a matrix of relationships, and that everything that happens is a part of a larger flow.

This is the kind of leadership and coaching that can transform our world. And this is what you will learn in this program.

Transformational Presence provides a strong foundation for conscious living, leading, and coaching through a powerful yet practical set of skills. When those skills are developed together in the step-by-step approach that Alan teaches, you quickly expand your capacities for awareness, understanding, perception, and effective action.

At the core of our work is Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness. Whole-Mind Thinking is a result of a full partnership between the intuitive and intellectual minds. This partnership actually exists within us already. However, through our socialization and traditional education experiences, most of us have been conditioned that these are two separate minds. And that the intellect is the one that counts.

The first step in developing Whole-Mind Thinking is the understanding that the intuitive mind is actually the larger and more powerful mind. The intellectual mind is just one small part of the much larger intuitive mind. Both are essential today for impactful leadership and coaching. They each play critical roles. Understanding their roles is an important first step in developing these new leadership and coaching skills and capacities.

Whole-Being Awareness stretches Whole-Mind Thinking to include the incredible innate awareness, understanding, and wisdom available to us through our human energy system. Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “The body knows,” or “The body doesn’t lie.” The human energy system is an extraordinary technology that we’re just beginning to scratch the surface of. It is capable of guiding and supporting us far more than most people have imagined.

As Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness become your default approach to life, leadership, and coaching, you discover a greater ability to “see the big picture” of what is happening. You begin to understand events and circumstances within a much larger context. You learn to recognize patterns and flows of energy and discover how to navigate complex situations.

When faced with challenges, difficulties, or confusion, Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness reduce stress and foster resilience by transforming your relationship to what is happening. There are no magic pills, yet as your perception and understanding of what is happening expands, clarity emerges. And you know what to do next.

Today, we are faced with unprecedented challenges and rapid change as well as enormous opportunities and potential. Transformational Presence prepares you for meeting any opportunity or challenge from a place of clarity, grounding, and trust. It gives you the skills, tools, and capacities to “think on your feet,” as we might say in business, or to “dance in the moment,” as we often say in coaching.

Transformational Presence is the foundational skill set for conscious leadership, coaching, and service. It helps you to be flexible, adaptable, responsive, and creative, so that you can work with whatever lands in front of you instead of struggle against it. As individuals, organizations, and societies develop and refine this skill set, they begin to shape a transformational culture around them. As the culture transforms, people are more supported and encouraged to introduce transformational initiatives.

Transformational Presence is a way of life—a way of being, thinking, and taking action for accelerated and sustainable results. In whatever arena you serve—personal, small business, social entrepreneurship, corporate or government leadership, education, health care, or non-profits—Transformational Presence Leadership and Coaching lays the groundwork for creating a world that works.
