A Message from the Founder
============================================

Everyone's a Leader

Ken Blanchard and Don Shula wrote an interesting book
sometime back called "Everyone's A Coach." This phrase
has been adopted by a number of people, some who lead
large organizations of aspiring coaches. In my own
view, everyone is not a coach because to be a coach
requires self-mastery. This differentiating aspect of
coaching is probably the most difficult for most
aspiring coaches; I know it is for me--a constant
journey.

In terms of leadership however, no matter what role
you're in, parent, teacher, coach, executive, manager,
supervisor, and even if you are in the middle of the
desert, you are a leader by default. If for no other
followers, one has the responsibility for personal
leadership, so no one escapes leading, even when
leadership is not about self-mastery.

The reason I'm writing is that I'm reminded continually
about the current geopolitical issues that face us all
in one way or another--directly or indirectly. No one
can hide, no one can escape leadership. I often talk
about "being the change we seek." This axiom I think
was made popular by people quoting Mahatma Gandhi who
chose to personally take on his own leadership and as a
result 100s of thousands of people were led.

That's what is interesting about leadership.

You don't need followers. In coaching, you don't become
a coach in any form until there is someone to coach, yet
leadership is much different. Since everyone is a
leader, then leadership requires no followers!

I suspect this will perplex some people as people
wonder about what personal leadership means when there
is no one following? In some ways, this is the matter
however...what do you do when no one is following?

Are you leading in a way that others would want to
emulate?

Are you modeling the change you seek?

Someone said to me once, that one star won't light up
the sky, it takes millions of stars. When I merge this
saying with one from Confucius, I find that "a
lighted sky begins with but a single star."
  Each of us
has a journey, each journey begins with but a single
step, as Confucius offered.


Personal leadership is a powerful light unto the world
and shows that you take responsibility for you and the
change you seek. While this is not enough to produce
all of the required changes--a globalized international
community must make--it is, in my opinion, a star - t.

Everyone's a leader. Will you take responsibility for
being part of the problem or part of the
solution...only you can answer the question.

THE ENNEAGRAM AS A DEVELOPMENTAL MODEL (free)
Lead by:  Dr. Joel M. Rothaizer
Wednesday, July 14, 2004
6:00 PM EST 1 hr.

The Enneagram has both a horizontal and a vertical
dimension.  Most people focus on the horizontal
dimension (the nine types). More important, ultimately,
is the vertical dimension, the Levels of Development
that make the Enneagram a remarkably powerful
developmental instrument.

In this class Dr. Rothaizer will briefly review the
nine types (very helpful for determining your type) and
then discuss the Levels of Development and answer any
questions you may have.
