Embracing and Being Change
While there is a lot of talk about "managing change", life has taught us something different. Change cannot be be truly managed or controlled. In the words of Star Trek, "Resistance is futile." Change is a constant - it is part of the fabric of life, calling us to continously update how we operate at work.
Leaders and teams often react to change and then have an experience of being behind - running after what they think should have been done already. Alternatively, they can choose to be riding the wave of change, anticipating and flowing with the adaptions that are needed. Change can be embraced. Leaders can choose to "Be the change they want to see in the world" and be the elixir for positive change at work. In other words, successful leaders lead others down a path they have travelled first.
Are you needing a different, more holistic approach to change?
ElevateWork could be exactly what you are looking for?
The Organizational Soul
Deep down, everyone wants change. They know that 'something' is not working at work. They are wanting more meaning and they are wanting their work to engage them at the deepest levels of their capacity and desire. They want to feel like they belong, are contributing to making a difference and that they have the opportunity to grow. They also want to receive a fair exchange for their contributions.
In an 'Elevated Workplace', work works for everyone. There is an palpable, pervasive sense of meaning, shared values, fulfillment and engaged contribution. People feel like they belong and that their work makes an positive impact, personally and for the world. Change becomes a catalyst for expansion, rather than something to be feared.
Elevated leaders inspire the spiritual impulse that is at the heart-of-work. They awaken to and liberate a deeper level of vitality, inspiration, meaning and creativity in their teams. Leaders elevate more leaders and build the capacity for effective collaboration by cohesive, engaged, agile teams. For organizations, an elevated workplace pays off in heightened productivity, employee retention, customer satisfaction, sustainability and innovation.
Leading With & For Soul
In the Elevated Workplace, leaders understand that they are at the centre of change and love it. This is not a "power trip", but rather a responsibility and a practice. They understand that their behaviors and their attitudes can make all the difference, "good or bad."
They also know that the culture of their organization is a reflection of past leadership and are conscious of where they have been and are open to feedback from the system and to deep personal change for themselves. They know that as they change, there is a ripple-effect in the culture and capacity of the organization. Elevated leaders are catalysts of deep change - being the change and walking the talk.
At ElevateWork, we are devoted to conscious leadership. We walk beside you and support you in our coaching and mentoring services. We help you get in touch with the deep change.
To go higher and farther, we have found that you need to go deeper and wider - to the roots and nourishment in the soil.

ElevateWork Leadership Team
Richard Schultz, Canada
To the world of work, Richard brings "possibility thinking" and the inner space for deep transformation.
Over 30 years ago, Richard began questioning personal and societal beliefs about what life and work was "suppose to be about." Something didn't fit. These common worldviews seemed devoid of meaning and lasting fulfillment. His "inner voice" called to him for something more. Within a short time, Richard courageously walked away from his "safe" corporate career to take a powerful journey into self awareness and transformation. In this continuing journey, he invites leaders to think and grow beyond their pre-conditioned limitations into a vision of ever-expanding potential and possibility. This is the Soul Path of Leadership.

Anders Johansson, Sweden
Anders brings in a unique outdoor perspective and a deep trust of process in his approach to engaging teams. Every now and then we need to change perspective and to support us to do so, we can rearrange the room, or we can use the 'outdoor room'. In a room with no walls there are no limits nor borders to cross. It is open to bring in other, unplanned influences that might support your thinking process or totally change its direction.
Anders is motivated to find the appropriate balance between health and the demands and preconditions of life and work. He trusts that the knowledge and wisdom is always within the individual, group or organisation and he is always eager to support you in bringing this wisdom to the surface.
