I’m building this site, this effort, this quiet evolution to change the world for the better. It is based on the ability of resonance to capture potential and then using that potential for good.
Potential is just that and no more. Energy knows no good or bad, only flow.
The fact is, ALL of our choices are frequencies that echo in the lives of others. And when bad behaviors are compounded by the choices of the influenced, the unused potential in the system gets co-opted for hurting instead of helping.
My wife experienced this with her last job. The top dog in the food chain had chosen to forego many recommended practices from HQ, and appeared to be prioritizing his/her perqs over the performance of the workplace. In two months’ time, morale was at an all-time low, performance was suffering across the board, the attrition rate was through the roof and there were insufficient employees to cover all responsibilities in a timely manner.
The resonance in that workplace was most detrimental. For most employees, the choice was to accept the poor performance or seek work elsewhere.
(I believe that one can lead from any position. Resonance is powerful enough to move mountains and bring down walls. But most people don’t know how to exert this influence. That’s why we’re here. )
Bad behavior by any leader is very difficult because it also damages the credibility of every other leader.
So, we must be willing to step forward into the light, the spotlight, and lead. And not only lead, but do the right things. We cannot and should not stand by and let someone else usurp the responsibility of leadership to satisfy their own needs at the expense of those they serve.
Remember, every choice we make is an example to others. Choosing to allow bad behavior is giving approval for it to continue. Let us choose to expect better of our leaders and ourselves. And if we can’t get better from our leaders, we need to replace them with lightning speed. Trust me, the other leaders would hear the thunderclap and think twice about bad behavior.
It is up to us to hold our leaders accountable.
TODAY’S INVITE: Know what leaders are saying and doing. Decide if you feel those things are good for you and your community. Learn what mechanisms are in place to hold leaders accountable. Use those mechanisms.
If those mechanisms are insufficient, learn what it would take to modify them. Your influence can be the deciding input of force, the influence that pushes ideas of change into action.
