Dark Light

Becoming an authentic leader can feel like a daunting climb up a mountain in the middle of a storm. It’s about getting to the top and navigating the challenges and obstacles. I’ve been there, feeling like just another rung on someone else’s ladder. However, my experiences have taught me the undeniable power of genuine connection and the importance of carving out my path. 

Let me take you back to my days as an executive pastor, where part of my role was to be the guardian at the gate. My job was to filter out the noise and protect my lead pastor from those who saw him as just another stepping stone on their path to success. Seeing how some people would exploit others for their own gain was disheartening. I wanted to scream from the rooftops, “These people don’t want great things for you; they want everything from you.” 

Unfortunately, the shadow of transactional intent still looms large in my role today as an executive coach. It’s frustrating when clients approach me solely to exploit my network instead of seeking genuine guidance. But I remain committed to helping those who want to achieve their goals. My relationships are built on trust, hard work, and authentic character, and they are not commodities to be traded. 

Despite the challenges, I’ve learned that building authentic connections is the key to success. It’s about embracing unique talents and insights, building your ladder, and championing genuine effort. 

Consider the following:

For those entangled in the web of using others for advancement, remember:

– You’re Better Than That: Your worth transcends the utility you provide to others. Embrace the unique talents and insights you bring to the table.

– Build Your Own Ladder, Wear Your Own Coat Tails: The journey of crafting your own success is rich with challenges and rewards. Take pride in your achievements.

– Promote and Champion Genuine Effort: Elevate those around you who are making a positive impact. Adopting an abundance mindset will make you known for the right reasons.

CatalystCo Group Coaching: A Platform for Authentic Growth

Group Coaching can seem so trendy. It could be just another money grab for coaches and consultants. I get it, and I have experienced it. We decided to do something different. Why? Because we recognize that there is POWER in the community. But we also recognize that our clients deserve the best systems and resources. Why can’t we provide both?

Progress finds a path when our systems, strategies, and structures go in the same direction. So, we decided to provide our community with coaching and also unlocked our Agency services as part of the experience. We don’t like the idea that our coaching clients must pay extraordinary amounts for things we can provide that are significantly less expensive, such as SEO Optimization, Social Media Management, etc. So we did something about it. 

– Genuine Assessments: Our approach involves conducting a thorough personal assessment of the individual leader to understand their unique strengths, weaknesses, and behavioral tendencies. We value the intricacies of human interaction and aim to fully embrace the complexities and nuances of the leader’s personal dynamics.

– Authentic Social Engagement: Executives must understand the power of their personal brand in today’s digital age. A solid personal brand can help them stand out in a crowded market and establish themselves as thought leaders in their industry. At CatalystCo, we understand the importance of a personal brand and offer our members access to a team of experts who provide the best resources and advice to help them cultivate and showcase their personal brands.
