The Visionary Creator

Visionary Creator

The Innate Potential Model has at its core 12 archetypal Personal Leadership types featured in the international best selling book Personal Leadership Style: How To Lead Your Life With Effortless Happiness, Confidence And Purpose

The key message and personal leadership lesson of the Visionary Creator is ‘visioning and actioning creative possibility’ Visionary Creator

Your key innate strengths are

  • You have a capacity to envision what is not yet seen or conceivable to others and you inspire others to see life symbolically, metaphorically
  • You have an ancient wisdom, ability to know, see and experience things you cannot or should not be able to explain
  • You are a known guide, leader of and for others and you can be comfortable in the boardroom or taking charge in any situation in work or life
  • You have an incredible wealth of knowledge and see the accumulation of wealth to be the utmost importance in life, a sign you have everything you need
  • You can be quiet and express an unassuming sense of power that can, to others who don’t know you, seem arrogant or make you appear aloof
  • While you might not lead the battles in your life, once they’ve been initiated you’ll use your natural gift for strategy to steer your team or side to success, no matter the cost
  • You believe in fairness and can be judging of those you don’t feel live up to your ideals and high standards.  This can, though, encourage and inspire others to be their best and express their innate potential
  • You have a gift for words, both verbal and written and can be comfortable teaching, writing or even on stage
  • Can have unique creative skill, artistic and otherwise, in fact can display a compulsion for creating, birthing and bringing visions to life
  • You are a natural strategist and analyst
  • You can make visible the possibilities, opportunities, potential in and for others in a way that others find challenging – you can also see all sides of the story, both pros and cons, positives and negatives and communicate these to those who need to hear them, most often without bias or personal connection to the outcome
  • You have a keen ability to imagine possibilities beyond the known, particularly large scale ones beyond the realm of the regular individual and ones that will, if executed benefit all of society, or a society

10 Empowering Reasons To Put Yourself First (Bonus Downloadable Wallchart Included)

I am always so inspired by the moment that someone I am meeting for the first time puts their hand up to say

“I’m not going to do this any more – I deserve more for me!”

and decides there and then that they are going to take back control and lead their lives – that’s personal leadership and that’s why I do what I do – for those moments

It makes me believe in the human spirit, in all things Creative Possibility and in myself and my commitment to lead by example

How often have you stopped to reflect on how much you are really giving to yourself that is loving, nurturing and freeing?

Over the past few weeks I have had some really interesting experiences with a number of clients and have seen a big shift in their self commitment.  This has left me feeling elated.  Why?  Just over a week ago I shared the above message on my Facebook page which possibly gives some insight

Today I want to expand on this further by sharing 10 empowering reason’s why I think you need to put yourself first and with that I hope to inspire you to put yourself first (and yes, as always I am committed to leading by example so I am doing my bit and taking my own advice!)

Right at the end of the list you’ll find a wall chart that you can download and print to keep as a reminder of why it’s important to put yourself first.  There’s a few extra spaces so you can add your own reason’s too because there is great inner power in self inspiration

10 Empowering Reasons To Put Yourself First

1. When you do others will too
2. You deserve the very best of everything and putting yourself first is an act of self belief
3. The world deserves the very best, bright, shining, loving version of you today and every day
4. Life is limitless when you put yourself first
5. You get to call the shots and be the leader of your journey
6. Life is what you make it and putting yourself first shows you that you are worth it
7. Choices and the actions that follow speak louder than words (what are you saying?)
8. Being a little selfish is actually healthy for you
9. Doing so shows others how to do the same (so they can benefit from all the positive abundance that comes with doing so too)
10. When you do show yourself unconditional love all that creates more abundance, joy, love and effortless success in your life

It’s written in the first person so if you dare to read it out loud, even really quietly, you are affirming more of you and that’s Creative Possibility in action and that’s limitless!

 

 

Give Up Or Choose To Take Back Control?

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to spend some time with a client of mine who is in a big space of struggle right now.  The premises where his business is based have been sold and he has less than 2 months to move

Now the fact that the premises were to be sold didn’t come out of the blue.  He knew about it a short time ago and we’d been working together to take control and get decisions made and actions taken to support a move to a new home.  In fact just last week during coaching we’d set up a moving file and started a list of all the things he’d have to do when moving time came

He’d voiced many mixed feelings about the incredible uncertainty that comes when the place you lease for work is going to sooner than later be owned by someone else who may not want you to stay.  Everything he shared were what I’d call usual responses to uncertainty.  In fact I knew many of them myself from when we sold our home last year and I had to find somewhere to work from quite quickly

The thing is, when the call came to say there was to be a new owner and that he was going to have to move it was like he was hearing it out of the blue, for the first time.  He was devastated and struggled with what to do.  He felt powerless, helpless, like all the decisions had been taken away from him and he just didn’t know what to do

Luckily I found out what head and heart space he was in and was able to drop in and visit him in person with little notice after another client I visit just 10 mins from his business wrapped up their session significantly earlier than expected

Within just 2 hours we were able to work together to turn things around and go from “I am thinking of closing the business down completely “ to genuine positivity and action.  The key thing I want to highlight here is ‘work together’!

(as a side thing I love the image above that my assistant found for the Creative Possibility Facebook page just the end of last week!  it’s perfect)

What Are You Saying This Year?

Ultimate Blog Challenge Post 6

In light of yesterday’s message about discovering and using your own voice I wanted to share with you a little exercise to help you get clear on what you’re saying this year

Last year I started the year off with lots of reflection on the previous year (it’s something I do every year to be honest) and one of the most important things I did was to create a set of statements that captured my intentions, my beliefs, my passions, my creativity and my own limitlessness.  I stuck them on the wall next to my desk in my office and I glance at them every day

When it came to doing this year’s reflection this little image with all of it’s statements really stuck out to me as one of the most profound tools I used during Creative Possibility Year Intention Statmentsthe previous year.  I love the messages as much today as when I created them and while I’ll create new ones for this year that’s not to replace those of 2012 but to add to them!  As an added bonus it was fun and simple to create and probably most importantly it was creative so I got to have some right brain fun (you can see my statements for 2012 to the right)

Why not create some empowering statements of intention for yourself, decorate them and place them somewhere they can nurture your year

Until next time I wish you a limitless life filled with succulent, effortless success

A Leader? Who Me? Yes YOU!

You may have gathered that leadership is one of my great passions.  Really, personal leadership is, in my opinion and from my observation, the ultimate in empowerment.  Being a leader or taking on a leadership role is not out of your reach.  To be a leader doesn’t mean you have to be getting up in front of large groups of people sharing your message, being the front person in an organisation or taking the reigns of some important, very visible project.  It starts with you being you.  It means that you get to call the shots, stand tall, stride forward with purpose and live your life on your terms.  Now tell me, who doesn’t want to experience that?

Over the past couple of years I have to say that I have developed a very intimate relationship with my inner leader, the best friend to my inner Creative Goddess and I have to say that together they head up my cheer squad, encouraging me, nurturing me, guiding me and inspiring me to live my best life every day

Today I share with you my top 3 tips for getting to know your inner leader;

1. Own Your Leadership Potential
So often I meet women who just don’t see themselves as leaders.  We all have leadership potential.  We all have the potential to be truly, authentically empowered.  Look around and see who you inspire.  To those people you are a leader so start seeing yourself as one and own your leadership potential

2. Boldly Express Who You Really Are
Whilst I have been hosting the Empower Hour Series one thing I have heard time and time again is that it is so important that we are not afraid of showing the world who we are.  Being a leader means daring to let everyone see the real you, all of the time if possible.  Don’t try to be someone else or something that you are not

3. Do 1 Thing Every Day To Connect With Your Inner Leader
Set an intention daily to do 1 thing each and every day to connect with your inner leader.  She really does want you to notice her!  (really she does…) It doesn’t have to be a big time consuming thing.  It could be something as simple as asking her what she’d do if you’re faced with a decision or challenge.  The just let yourself be still and quiet for a moment and see what she guidance she has to offer

Hope you’ve enjoyed this article a much as I did creating it for you!  please share your thoughts, questions and a-ha’s below

Leadership Archetypes; A New Empowerment Paradigm For Women

Picture

First identified by Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung, Archetypes are simply models of people, behaviours and personality.  Jung dedicated a great deal of his professional and personal life to understanding human nature and in particular the ‘Collective Unconscious’.  It was within this collective unconscious, a deep part of our unconscious mind (the ‘subconscious’ as it’s also referred to) that he believed a range of different archetypes existed.  The collective unconscious is where, through connection with our individual archetypes, we can embody an inherited, universal set of standards and beliefs

When mapped back to the myth and stories that have existed since the begining of time, such as the myth and stories of Gods and Goddesses from around the world, archetypes provide us with a powerful way to understand ourselves, how we function and grow, how we build and maintain relationships and best of all how can be our brilliant selves with ease simply by knowing our innate strengths and integrating all aspects of what makes us who we are.  Archetypes provide us with an illuminating and enlightening way to know and express who we really are

Never before has there been a model that focuses on the significance of leadership archeytpes.  Following years of experience working with archetypes and deep, soulful in-depth observation of what makes a woman take ownership and step up as the leader of her life, Shannon brings you a unique, fun, exciting opportunity to know yourself better than you ever thought possible.  With that knowing and Shannon’s expert guidance you’ll discover a framework for leveraging your personal innate archetypal strengths so that you can achieve more than you ever thought possible with great ease, free-flowing freedom, personal satisfaction and pure joy
