What does it mean to ᏕᎿᎯᏒᎿ ᏯᎨᎿᎻ ᎻᎬᎯᏒᎿ?
It’s the ability to add presence to our interactions, our relationships, and certainly, to our quality as a leader. It’s our capacity to approach an interaction or conversation, especially if we know it’s going to be stressful or challenging - to pause and ask ourselves the question, “What do I really want?” From yourself, for the other person, for the outcome of the situation, for our family, for your team or community. And when we can connect to that heart element of what it means to ᏨᎾᏁᏁᎬᏨᎿ ᎯᏁᎠ ᎨᏁᎿᎬᏒᎯᏨᎿ as human beings, it takes us to a different place that opens us and creates availability. To ourselves, and to whatever is present in the room with the other person. It gives us the capacity to sense and to listen, and to know what needs to show up to effect the most desirable result.
I’d love to hear how you care for your heart. Do you have the capacity to feel your heart? Are you aware of the feelings that arise ᎯᏕ ᎿᎻᎬᎽ ᎾᏨᏨᏬᏒ, so that you can be present with them, as opposed to them running away with you? Let me know your response in the comments below.
