With 30 years of senior management positions, a MBA in Leadership, Strategic Management and International Business, study at Harvard Business School I realized there was only so much anyone could achieve by “doing stuff”. There must be a better way of leading and achieving. I had picked up a few clues on the way but my partnership in Andreia with Tanja co-creating the Living and Leading Consciously Program is the culmination of my journey and it is truly a better way.
The Andreia Method is about leading in alignment with your core beliefs and values. Being a Leader in or of a team who are enjoying fulfilled and happy lives. People who want to follow you sharing a vision, knowing helping you achieve your goals will simultaneously help them to achieve their own.
In my experience, no matter how many toys you have at your disposal, where you can go and what you want to do, unless you are living your life your way, you will not be the leader you were born to be because your will lack the key ingredient followers want to see…AUTHENTICITY. The funny thing is I couldn’t have told you this even five (5) years ago. To the world I was a hard nosed, driven executive who hit moved and hit again. Simultaneously inside the real Me was dying because the real me wasn’t that guy! I now know the lack of alignment was the core reason I was not achieving the outcomes I wanted. I simply could not continue to be someone I was not and it had to stop!
As you will discover nothing in the Leading and Living Consciously course is new or unique some of it is truly ancient and ubiquitous. Much of it I have known for decades and much of it is taught in universities and other places. The real trick is in HOW TO DO IT!.
Looking Back The Future Became Clear
Steve Jobs said “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
And this is very true.
“What If we’d known what we know now decades earlier or even when we were teenagers. What If we were made aware of the power that lies within us? What difference would that have made in our lives? What difference could it make in the lives of our children?”
For me that is when the Andreia Method began and Leading and Living Consciously came to be.
The process of creating this course has been transformational. I now sleep at night and take on life’s challenges from a new perspective and if that doesn’t work I am learning to change perspective and approach from yet another direction. I have discovered the power of living from a flexible created context as opposed to content or by default. I am creating my future now and bringing you The Andreia Method coming from Leading and Living Consciously as part of that future is in perfect alignment with who I am.
The ancient Greeks revered four key virtues, the one we know the least about is Andreia. As close as possible Andreia translates to Courage. Andreia related to a soldier’s courage to be in the fight; to put his life on the line not whether he survived or succeeded. It was the courage to “DO” hence the perfect name for us;
The Andreia’s Method will give you the foresight we only realized in hindsight. It will equip you with a set of tools to that will enable you to Live Consciously and thereby Lead Consciously; to understand your power to control your external world and lead others lies in controlling your internal world.
All you need to do is COMMIT to change. Without COMMITMENT nothing changes because there is no ACTION!
The Andreia Method will revolutionise your life so long as you LISTEN, COMPLETE and ACT on what you are learning.
Go ahead take the challenge and let me know what happens! We’d love to hear from you…
My life has been a journey from self-loathing to self-love and from self -doubt to self-confidence. I began working as a Behavioural Change Coach leveraging my Sociology degree and my experience as a Seminar Leader which grew out of an interest in Personal and Professional Development and moving past my own blocks.
The Living Consciously Course From My Perspective
I have been immersed in Personal Development for some 20 years now and I love empowering people. Interestingly one of my clients gave ME my purpose in a coaching session. “I exist to remind people of who they are!” It fitted me perfectly, like a glove in fact and that is what I have lived by ever since.
This course, tired and tested on our and others was born out of a desire to empower as many people as possible and make this available as cost effectively as possible and offer a range of solutions to suit the regular Joe through to Corporate. A guiding set of principles, a framework if you like, to keep me on track is invaluable. I set an intention and “wrote a course for ME to live by and lead by”. That is why John and I both say that writing and living this course has been transformational for us. It has!
Now I haven’t got it all worked out, far from it! I will say this though, I honestly believe that anything is possible. I used to tell people that as a Seminar Leader in truth though, I thought it was possible for them and not for me. I now KNOW the only person in my way was ME and I now am committed to getting out of my way very quickly. I am happy to say that I do that now without hesitation.
I sat down and literally drew together all of the threads that I knew would inspire me. The word Inspire comes from the Latin which was borrowed from Greek and means “influence or animate with an idea or purpose” Much more my style. Transformation might not be easy but it does not have to be painful. Suffering is optional!
I have set about debunking a hell of a lot of personal myths. The ones I told myself, and the ones other people told me. I just don’t believe them anymore. It is like I reached into my pocket, found the keys to freedom and let myself out of the proverbial cage.
The keys are in your pocket too.
