Consciousness Is The New Sexy
By Stephane Leblanc, Founder and CEO, International Centre for Conscious Leadership
We live in a society that values the superficial and we are quick to admire people who show outward symbols of success such as movie stars, music stars, professional athletes and wealthy people.
We give our love and attention to these people and buy products that they endorse without asking too many questions.
We are also trying to show the best side of ourselves on social media so others will admire us.
Many coaches online promise to make you rich if you follow their recipe for success and are ready to charge you thousands for it.
This is the way our society has been run for a long time and it has created a lot of challenges. At the same time, many people are not fulfilled and crave authenticity.
I feel it is time for a new era where we will focus on the rise of consciousness in every human being, in organizations and in society so we can all prioritize what is good for all of us and instead of prioritizing what is good for just a few of us.
According to research, most of society live in lower levels of consciousness and are focused on their own needs, and many companies will do anything to make money, even if this means leading with low integrity.
Why is it still acceptable that 9.1 million of people die of hunger every year when there are 2208 billionaires worth 9.1 trillion$? Why is it still acceptable that food companies sell products that are damaging to their client's health? Why is it acceptable for an aircraft company to shortcut the certification of a new aircraft resulting in the death of 300 people?
It is not acceptable that these things and many more happen and it is time we do something about it.
Consciousness is the new sexy. There is nothing more attractive than a man or woman who has done its inner work to bring some light on its subconscious so it can heal the wounds of its past and overcome the fears and limiting beliefs of its ego so it can rise in consciousness.
Conscious leaders have made the shift from I to WE and they focus on the needs of others. They have an open heart, are authentic and vulnerable. They don't try to show off as they are humble and they are committed to the well being of others. They create cultures where people can be inspired and thrive and through the engagement of others, they achieve breakthrough results.
Conscious leaders are committed to make a difference in the lives of those they lead and those they serve and in their own way, they are catalysts for transformation.
