We intentionally create every dimension of Heart of Leadership as an authentic, high-quality and consistent expression of our values. We live what we teach.
“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred… unforeseen incidents, meetings, and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We welcome life’s opportunities and challenges as essential to the leadership journey. With grace, we cultivate healthy, loving, and real relationships, with ourselves, one another, and the world.
“The part will never be well unless the whole is well.” – Plato
As servant leaders, we steward our unique gifts for the healing of the world. As we discover our gifts, we give of them with care.
“A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.” – D. Elton Trueblood
In partnership, our results exceed those we could produce alone. In our sufficiency, we honor both our independence and our interdependence in service of the highest, greatest good.
Collaboration becomes the circuitry through which the energy, attention, and resources of sufficiency flow and are continually renewed. Implicit in collaboration is the trust that says there is enough and we will figure out how to use it together wisely.” – Lynne Twist
We honor the vulnerable truth of our hearts through our voices, choices, and actions.
“Courage is about putting our vulnerability on the line. If we want to live and love with our whole hearts and engage in the world from a place of worthiness, our first step is practicing the courage it takes to own our stories and tell the truth about who we are. It doesn’t get braver than that.” – Brene Brown
Loving what is, we stand in awe of all that is possible and see the miraculous in the everyday. We believe in the brilliance of those we serve and ourselves.
“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” – e. e. cummings
