As we continue this conversation about the nature of emergent leadership, personal coach and consultant Fionn Wright explores the journey of development through life and the unlocking of new capacities that enable success in new and expanding contexts.
Fionn takes us along a lifelong development model that integrates individual growth with the development of something bigger than ourselves, where the two become inseparable, with the emergence of a mature, fully realized human as a possibility. It’s a journey of self leadership that expands beyond the rules and boundaries of community or culture.
It’s where we find that life has an emergent property that
enables us to shape together with others, and at that point leadership becomes a distributed, co-creative process rather than just emergent in the individual. This frontier is emerging in education, in parenting, in business, in health and wellbeing, to where new processes and awareness have the potential to transform the most entrenched institutional building blocks of society.
Everything we do has an impact; from this conversation, every word that I use, every thought that I have, every motion that I make, impacts and influences the world around me. From that lens, as we look at being in the world, being all over the world, how do I bring my awareness back to every single not just action, but thought? The direction of my awareness. What is it that I'm focusing my attention on? And in this world today, attention is the new currency.
