The thinking used to be that work and life were, are and should always be two very separate worlds and they need to be diligently kept apart.
As if that were even possible.

That unfounded belief would get compounded by the fact that many, if not most, leaders today got thrown into the job with little, if any, preparation. They were being rewarded for being the best salesperson or brightest engineer or programmer. Or maybe just because they had been with the team or company the longest.
Most were successful technical people, sales people or otherwise successful individual contributors. Of course none of that has anything to do with their ability to lead others to similar great results. Two very different skill sets generally viewed erroneously as one.

Organizations can still have the belief that by making you a leader or supervisor, even with little to no preparation, you should naturally be able to get others to do what you’re capable of doing.
And do it as well as you can. I mean, if you’re a leader.

By the way, that seldom, if ever, happens.

Effective leadership today is as much about compassion, authenticity, emotional literacy, self awareness, self management, vision and relationships as it is about next quarter’s bottom line.
The folks that work for you today want to know YOU as well as need to know what you want from them. Nobody will run through a brick wall for your brain and your bright ideas. On the other hand, they will… If they get to know you and your heart a bit.

It’s a fine line to successfully maneuver. Most unprepared leaders don’t walk it well.. and regress to doing their ‘old’ job…or micromanaging those that are doing their old job. Many never wanted the leadership role to being with.

Being a successful leader today first and foremost is about building relationships; relationships with the people you lead and building the relationship you have with yourself.

Jim Mitchell creates a container of trust using his many skills, his personal wisdom, his deep authenticity and most of all by modeling a powerful, passionate presence of total integrity and grace.”

“I would encourage others to trust the process and be open to all the information in this safe and comfortable environment. Regardless of where a person is in their life there are things to learn and insights to gain in this workshop. I believe your experience lends authenticity to the materials.

Your caring and sincere nature shone through and anyone fortunate enough to attend your workshop will be forever transformed.”

Equally importantly, Jim’s power and wisdom brings these frameworks to life, and makes them even more accessible to the workshop participant.”

I’ve done a lot of workshops and truly appreciated so much the tools, the concise and authentic explanations and how the way you held a space that allowed for the beauty and wisdom of each participant to flower and contribute to the whole.
