What will it take for humanity to wake up?

By Stephane Leblanc

Humanity is at a major crossroad. As the population of the planet keeps increasing and we, as a species, have not committed to care for each other and our home, planet earth, our social and environmental problems are just getting bigger. This will only get worse as the population of earth will increase from 7.5 billions to almost 10 billions in the next 30 years.

Le leadership conscient va transformer la société

By Stephane Leblanc

Le leadership conscient est un nouveau paradigme de leadership selon lequel les dirigeants équilibrent les besoins de l'organisation avec les besoins des employés, des clients, des fournisseurs, de la communauté et de l'environnement. C'est une vision entière du leadership qui assume que les leaders existent pour créer du bien dans la société et pas juste pour faire des profits.

Pour transformer le monde des affaires, nous devons nous transformer en premier, nous les leaders. Notre transformation est personnelle car elle nous oblige à faire mettre de la lumière sur les peurs et les pensées limitatives que nous avons  héritées de notre conditionnement parental et culturel qui nous gardent centré sur notre égo afin que nous puissions élever notre niveau de conscience et atteindre notre plein potentiel, tout en étant aligné avec la mission de notre vie.

Embracing your leadership purpose

By Stephane Leblanc

One day, you will retire after 30, 40 or even 50 years or work. Someone will probably organize a retirement party for you. Some people will come, maybe many. Some people will talk about you and the impact you had on them.

What would you like them to say?

As you are busy in your day to day work, solving problems, managing people, delivering the results, satisfying your customers needs, you probably don't have too much time to think about this. Leaving a legacy is something we usually think about at the end of our career as we see retirement in our sight.

Conscious Leadership is powered by love

Last summer, I visited an exposition called Revolution this week at the Museum of fine arts in Montreal It was an exposition on the late 60's and early 70's era, the peace and love movement and the age of aquarius. and as I was watching a video of the Woodstock music festival, being absorbed in all the love present, I said to myself, where as all this love gone? What happened to all these baby boomers that were promoting love and not war? Why do we now live in a modern society where fear is so omnipresent?

After all, most of the large businesses today are led by baby boomers that lived in that era. Why do we now live in a society that is mostly focused on ego and fear? Why are so many leaders focused on what is good for them and not so much on others, society and humanity? Why is the human race the only species on our planet that is destroying its own habitat and so many other species.

Êtes-vous prêt à faire une différence

Le psychologue Carl Jung a décrit le cheminement de la vie humaine d'une manière simple quand il a dit que les 40 premières années de notre vie sont propulsé par notre ambition et les 40 années suivantes par la mission de notre vie.

Au cours des 40 premières années, nous sommes guidés par notre ego et nous cherchons à satisfaire nos besoins de base en matière de sécurité, d'appartenance et de réussite. Nous travaillons fort pour obtenir des résultats, gagner un bon salaire, être reconnus et réaliser notre plein potentiel. Comme nous réussissons, nous cherchons à acquérir des biens matériels, nous marier, avoir des enfants, avoir une belle maison, une belle voiture, un chalet, faire de beaux voyages et bien plus encore.

Are you ready to make a difference?

Carl Jung,  a respected psychologist described the human journey through life in a simple way when he said that the first 40 years of our life is about ambition and the next 40 years is about meaning and purpose. 

In the first 40 years, we are driven by our ego and we seek to fulfill our most basic needs for security, belonging and achievement.  We work hard to achieve results, to earn a good salary, to be recognized and to achieve our full potential.  As we achieve success, we seek to acquire material possessions, get married, have kids, have a nice house, a nice car, a cottage, travel to Italy and so much more.  In that phase, many of us believe that our true value in this life lies in our achievements, out title, our salary and that our material possessions are the physical demonstration of our success.

Feminine leadership is a pillar of Conscious Leadership

All women and men are born with the masculine and feminine principle in them but society teaches us quickly to ignore one side of our personality in order to meet the norms of society, thus depriving us of a healthy balance. 

In the India tradition, it is understood that everything exists in its dual nature. There is the Shiva, which is the masculine principle of consciousness and awareness.  But just to be a mindful and conscious leader if you don't also have access to Shakti which is the creative executive function of that consciousness.  Shiva and Shakti are like the yin and the yang in the yogic tradition.

Le leadership féminin est un des piliers du leadership conscient

Toutes les femmes et tous les hommes sont nés avec des caractéristiques féminines et masculines dans leur personnalité mais la société nous apprend très vite à ignorer un coté de notre personnalité afin de rencontrer les normes de la société, nous privant ainsi d'un équilibre.

Selon a philosophie Hindou, la danse cosmique entre les forces masculines et féminine permet d'avoir un mouvement harmonieux dans l'univers.  Tout déséquilibre occasionne des conflits, des pannes et des désastres. La force masculine est l'énergie et la force féminine est la création et le changement.

Le pouvoir de la coopération

Lors de ma dernière visite à Londres, j'ai eu l'occasion de visiter une exposition sur Pink Floyd au musée, ce qui était toute une surprise pour moi car je suis un grand amateur de Pink Floyd depuis mon adolescence. En visitant le musée, j'ai entendu une chanson intitulée: "Welcome to the machine" et cette chanson m'a interpellée car elle m'a rappelé le programme que nous recevons de la société lorsque nous commençons l'école.

The power of cooperation

When I last visited London recently, I had a chance to visit an exposition on Pink Floyd at the V&A museum which was quite a treat as I have loved Pink Floyd for many decades. While visiting the museum, I heard a song called: Welcome to the machine, and it reminded me of the program we get from society when we start school.

When we are really young, we spend most of our time playing and having fun. Kids what do not know each other will naturally play together, not matter what gender, ethnic origin or religion they are. When we start school, we are taught to be serious as we need to consume the education program that is planed for us.  We absorb society's program that teaches us about competition, that we live in a dog eat dog world and that we need to fight to get our fair share of the pie as we live in a world of scarcity.
