President’s Message

 

Abundant Thinking

Are you a “glass is half full” or “glass is half empty” type? Whichever your believe, your point of view will determine your outcome, be it thriving or diving. Since the SFBAC Board is approaching our annual strategic planning retreat to plan our activities & expected outcomes for 2016, I want to share my thoughts about developing a resonating vision and setting goals.


Which statements resonate for you?


“Change is hard” or “Change creates opportunity”


Both these statements will be true depending upon the filter proven over your lifetime experiences. What you believe to be true, will manifest to meet your expectations. Basically, you will interpret your experiences in a way that fits into your preconceived beliefs or paradigms.


Success Does Not Have to be Illusive or Based on Luck

Success is dependent upon your continuous commitment to being observant, creative, flexible and opportunistic. Remaining “in the flow of abundance” requires a mindfulness in our thoughts & beliefs, as our thoughts will manifest into reality – whatever we truly believe will happen, usually does. In order to help manifest what we WANT to achieve, there are three fundamental axioms that I have found helpful:


  1. A thing is what it is. Before jumping into your next course of action, you have to begin with an honest assessment of your current situation. Take an objective look at where you are currently, looking at what is worked and what didn’t, without blame or making it wrong.

  2. Own it. Once you have established a baseline of where you are, take responsibility and move on. Work towards creating solutions with an understanding of what brought you to this point, without excessive energy spent on placing blame on whose fault it was.

  3. Create what you want. With an honest assessment and understanding of where you are, you can more realistically choose what steps to take to get you closer to where you want to be.

Preaching to the Choir?

We all know in working with our coaching clients that if you look to where your passion lies, you will find endless amounts of energy, support and commitment required to overcome all challenges. If you are fueled by a passion, a love for what you do and to whom you serve, you can overcome any obstacle, seeing it as a catalytic opportunity towards achieving your goals. To be “at choice” in our lives, embrace and create change, welcome serendipitous opportunities as our vision manifests, and make them partners of our success!

—Ricci Victorio

Our October Program:

"Everyone wants to transform, but nobody wants to change"

How deep do we need to reach to transform, and be able to be and act differently in the places that matter most?  We all come by our habits, belief systems and reactions honestly. And often, they no longer serve our current values, commitments and vision.


Strozzi Institute (SI) integrates linguistics, neuroscience, body-centered transformation, and ontological distinctions to create a  somatic sensibility. SI’s embodied transformation also acknowledges the social context in which we live and navigate our lives. This holistic approach allows us to take what we most care about, our vision and values, our longings, and turn them into a “muscular commitment to action.”  It is a way to embody a more skillful and satisfying life, leadership and contribution to others.

“You are what you practice.” – Aristotle

 

Staci Haines is the CEO of Strozzi Institute, a CA Benefit Corporation, and their non-profit partner organization, generative somatics.  This for-profit/non-profit partnership is designed as an innovative way to respond to the needs of a diverse world and the leadership challenges of our times.  


Staci is a national leader in the field of somatics including somatic coaching, embodied leadership development and organizational development. She also brings this work to social leadership, social change movements and transforming the impacts of trauma. Staci is the author of Healing Sex, and the founder of genera­tionFIVE, whose mission is to end the sexual abuse of children within five generations, and was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show in February 2003. Staci has lectured at numer­ous institutions, including Oberlin College, Smith College, UC Berkeley, CIIS and Stanford University, and presented at national and international conferences.

Check out these special offers and information for this month’s sponsor: The Leadership Circle

The Leadership Circle offers Profile Certification


 

Leadership Circle Profile Certification: San Francisco Nov. 18-20, 2015


Grow your practice - take coaching deeper. Master three breakthrough assessments that will add velocity to your client's leadership effectiveness: Leadership Circle Profile 360 ™ (LCP), Manager Edition™ 360, and  Leadership Culture Survey™ for teams and entire organizations.    


Only LCP measures leadership competencies (what's going on) and reactive

behaviors (why it's happening). That's why leading organizations, consultants/coaches, and top universities consider our assessments their "strategic advantage".


Take a Free Test Drive Demo - Register for Certification  

The Leadership Circle Profile is:

  • More Revealing–It's the only 360 linking leadership competencies to core beliefs governing behavior.

  • More Advanced–Instantly reveals key opportunities for your executive’s development. No reams of documentation. Enables coaching to start at a breakthrough rather than require months trying to reach one.

  • More Than Just an Assessment Rich theoretical underpinnings of LCP provide pathways to transformation. No other tool offers this.

  • More Efficient-It's easy to use. Allows a coach to meet leaders "where they are" without spending valuable coaching time finding out where that is.

"After nearly 1000 coaching sessions with many instruments, LCP has led to the best 1-on-1 coaching sessions I have EVER experienced! It goes beyond feedback on behaviors and competencies (which it includes) to the source: core beliefs and assumptions out of which those behaviors live." David Womeldorff, author, coach, Former Consulting Director of Bank One Corporation’s Learning and Leadership Development.

Living The Coaching Life

Living The Coaching Life is a new, occasional series we’re testing - where we learn more about someone randomly pulled from our email list.


Those profiled will be asked to create some sort of one-time connection event - like a meet up at a local restaurant, or a weekend walk - to help SFBAC meet its goal of creating a robust network of coaches. To participate you can wait for us to pick a name off our mailing list or submit your answers to our survey which we’ll also pull from randomly.
