Description

Walt Disney said, “What you can imagine, you can create.” The opposite is also often true—what you cannot imagine, you probably will not create.

So often, I hear people say, “I hope it happens,” or “I hope it works out,” or some other version of an “I hope…” statement. However, I also recognize that when clients use “I hope” statements, it usually means that they do not actually have a clear vision for what they hope for. It also often means that they feel that they can’t do anything about it—that the situation is out of their hands, out of their control. Therefore, energetically, they have actually disengaged. As a result, in reality, their hope is often little more than a wish.

In our February 27th Virtual TPLC Masterclass, we will adapt a familiar framework, “Enlightened Dialogue,” in a rather specific way, to turn hope into vision and discover the appropriate next steps. This specific adaptation of the “Enlightened Dialogue” approach can help those you serve engage with what they hope for and create the best possible conditions for hope to manifest in reality.

This topic feels particularly important within the context of what is happening in our world today. Join me and your TPLC colleagues for the first virtual Masterclass of our 2017 series!

Note: This framework was introduced in Masterclasses in the Netherlands and Sweden in 2015. If you attended one of those Masterclasses, we still hope you will join us to deepen your learning, but this will not be a completely new framework for you.

Complicated, Complex, or Both: Critical Distinctions for Effective Leadership and Coaching in an Uncertain World

Description

The words complicated and complex are often used interchangeably in leadership and coaching conversations. However, they actually describe two different kinds realities that require two very different kinds of approaches. Understanding the difference and recognizing whether the situation or circumstance in front of you is complicated or complex is critical as you support others in navigating today’s uncertain and rapidly changing world.

When a circumstance or situation is complicated, it is possible to “think” your way through it—to analyze it and figure it out. You can usually identify a linear, cause-and-effect sequence of events, choices, or actions that led to the present moment. The environment around the issue is usually fairly stable and somewhat predictable, and there is usually general agreement among the people involved about what the desired outcome is. Complicated situations usually can be resolved through a solution-focused approach.

In organizational or group settings, it may be fair to expect the leader to know what to do. After all, they hopefully rose to their leadership position because of particular knowledge and expertise. In this context, we expect our leaders to develop clear visions for the future and to lead the process of designing clear strategies for making things happen. 

However, when a situation or circumstance is complex, much of the above no longer applies. There are likely to be many moving pieces, and those pieces may be constantly changing, evolving, or morphing into other forms. Conditions are constantly shifting and there may be many different ideas and opinions about what the outcomes should be. Often, many things are happening at once. You might sense that some things are related in some way, yet the connections between them are not obvious. Very little is predictable and there is no obvious cause-and-effect sequence. The ground beneath our feet keeps shifting and movement patterns tend to be circular or erratic instead of linear.

In complex situations, our past knowledge and experience is often no longer relevant. The ways that things worked before will not necessarily be how they will work again. Therefore, making a plan is challenging if not impossible. All of the pieces or components of the situation keep moving and changing. Usually, the best you can do when working in complexity is to look for your next step, take that step, and then observe what happens as a result. What you learn or discover through that observation then informs your next step. You continue to repeat this cycle as long as necessary. Transformational Presence prepares leaders and coaches to navigate complexity.

Complex situations need leaders with great capacity for Whole-Mind Thinking and Whole-Being Awareness, foundations of Transformational Presence. Complex situations need leaders who are skilled at navigating uncertainty, volatility, and rapid change—leaders who understand how the world works as energy in motion. Therefore, when working in complexity, our expectations from leaders must be different. Expecting leaders to have answers, to clearly define all that is happening, and to know what to do is not realistic. That’s not how complexity works.

Successful navigators of complexity are able to see beneath the surface—to perceive beyond the obvious—and dance with both the big picture and the details at the same time. They intuitively sense when to pause, giving things time to come together or fall into place, and when to move ahead in decisive action. The system or the circumstance itself becomes their guide and teacher, even as it changes and evolves.

In short, working in complexity demands the skills and frameworks that Transformational Presence provides. And being able to explain the distinction between complicated and complex situations to those you serve immediately creates the context and foundation for introducing Transformational Presence approaches.

Dave Snowden’s Cynefin Model offers a very clear and grounded tool for explaining this distinction. It provides clear understanding about why approaching complex situations as if they are complex does not work. Snowden has generously made this an open source model, encouraging its free use. In this Masterclass, you will learn to use this model as a door-opener for Transformational Presence concepts.

Kathrin O’Sullivan (USA) introduced the Cynefin Model to our community briefly during the 2016 Global Summit. Since then, I’ve been working with it quite a lot and am using it very successfully in my work with global leaders of IKEA. Working with this distinction has transformed their understanding of how to approach both challenges and new initiatives.

Join me for this interactive Masterclass to learn more about the distinction between complicated and complex and how to use the Cynefin Model to open the door for Transformational Presence approaches in your leadership and coaching.

Description

When leading and coaching within complexity, clarifying where those you serve are standing within the context of a situation can bring great insight and awareness. Are they standing in the thick of what is happening or standing some distance from it? Perhaps they are out on the edge of what is happening, or have even stepped out of the energy altogether. If they are on the edge, noticing whether they are on the “inside edge” or “outside edge” can also bring important awareness.

In this virtual Masterclass, we will explore a new coaching framework called “Inside-Outside.” Inspired by the writings of Richard Rohr, an American Franciscan friar and the founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I created this framework to help clients locate themselves within the context of their leadership situations. They have found it very helpful for gaining new perspectives on what is happening and helping them clarify where they will be most effective within a situation in any particular moment.

Join me to explore this new “Inside-Outside” leadership and coaching framework and learn a new approach for working with those you serve.

What People Are Saying

Jo Boniszewski

Jo Boniszewski (Netherlands)

I have yet to follow a coaching programme that has had more impact on me personally and professionally than the TPLC. I have learned and embodied a way of being and doing that enable me to cut straight to the core of an issue with my coaching clients, work with whatever appears, and move forward together with speed and ease. What once took an hour of coaching unfolds now in 20 minutes.

With Transformational Presence, I find myself in a completely non-judgmental and open place of discovery with my clients. The (self) coaching tools offered in the TPLC are hugely powerful in their simplicity, inviting deep insights, new opportunities, and answers to quickly arise, regardless of how complex or emotionally charged my client’s issue is. Utilising the intelligence of both the intellect and our intuition and combining exploration and reflection with action, Transformational Presence has resulted in significant and sustainable growth for me and for my clients.

Magnus Green

Magnus Green, Executive Coach (Sweden)

The Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training (TPLC) has been a door opener for me, not just in my coaching, but also as a manager, as a leader, and as a human!

My coaching has a completely different dimension now by working with energy. Imagine that you are working with the positive energies instead of the traditionally used "resources vs. obstacles" in your coaching. With this way of coaching, I am now able to help my clients move forward in a much faster and more professional way. Alan not only gave me new powerful yet simple coaching tools; he also gave me new approaches to discover what is really happening underneath the surface and the greater potential waiting to unfold in the coaching sessions.

As a manager and leader, I now have a new way of looking at organizations and change processes. We start from the essence—from the core of what is really going on and the potential that wants to emerge. And then we work from the inside out. The TPLC gave me new tools for this.

As a human, I now see my surroundings in a completely different way. I have found a deeper perspective, both for myself and for others. I have a much greater understanding of self-awareness, as well as more compassion for others and their actions.

Finally, I have attended many training courses over the years, including my MBA education, as well as trainings in management, sales, and marketing. However, if I were asked to recommend just one of them, without hesitation, I would choose the TPLC. This program has given me so much, both personally and professionally. And the access now to the Transformational Presence global community also provides me with resources and materials.

My advice to you—do not hesitate. Follow your intuition, and if your intuition says "yes" to the TPLC, go for it!

The TPLC impressed with its depth, simplicity, and powerful combination of presence and choice. To be able to create space like that requires nothing less than mastery. This is how Alan’s work is different from any other. Until I participated in the TPLC, I only knew how to make big changes through sweat, drama, and tears. Alan has shown me that transformation is possible through the stillness of the quiet heart. The greatest takeaway for me was becoming aware that struggle and difficulty was my choice.

TPLC is for me much more than a training—it is an invitation, once and for all, to declare who I choose to be in my life and what I want to support with my energy and actions.

Marja Sas, CTPC (Netherlands)

Once I stepped in, I knew I wanted more. TPLC is encouraging, empowering, and inspiring. It is about looking from another place, about the stories you tell yourself, about the choices you have. When you live TPLC and work with it, the clarity it brings is phenomenal. To know, all levels, that everything you need is present.

Alan respects who you are and where you are in your process. He does not push you, yet he challenges, invites, and encourages you, creating a space where you can explore, discover, and learn—a place where transformation can happen.

TPLC and working with Alan has impacted my life and work magically. I now live my essence and work from there. TPLC has become a way of living and working. Do you live what you know? Do you live your essence?

Gijs Dullaert (Netherlands)

So much has happened for me since I was first introduced to the Transformational Presence work. No matter what is going on, my grounding in Transformational Presence is never far away. Decision-making, both day-to-day and long-term, are so much easier and clearer now. I can still get caught on a personal rollercoaster from time to time, yet now I realize that it happens when I need to let go of something and take a big step forward. And now when the rollercoaster appears, I have tools and frameworks that help me quickly get grounded again, find clarity, and take action. I’m also getting better and faster at recognizing the rollercoaster before it sweeps me away.

More and more, I’m able to be a “vessel” for the things that need to happen. Most important to me is that I’m feeling much more at home in myself. My internal fire is so much stronger than ever before. I feel so privileged to have been introduced to Transformational Presence and to continue receiving its incredible gifts.

Alan Seale’s Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training program has allowed me to transform my coaching, my life, and my relationships! The program delivered more than I expected. It was simple yet profound and the coaching sessions were eye opening. It was so much more than just adding tools to your toolbox. And it provided me with CCEUs to renew my coaching credentials. I highly recommend this course to new coaches as well as seasoned coaches.

Working with Alan is a powerful experience: following the energy, inviting potential, and being aware of choice. Alan is the living example. Through his trainings and workshops, you see, feel, sense, and live in yourself.

The Transformational Presence tools are hands-on. I use them in the groups of frontline workers (midwifes, general practitioners, community health workers, youth workers) I work with. Together, we create and hold space for transformation in systems that no longer serve. Shifting from chaos, drama, and exhaustion to a grounded path connected through collective wisdom.

My personal path with Alan and the Transformational Presence community is a great inspiration for which I have an incredible flame of gratitude. It’s all about creating a world that works.

Mary Riley, CTPC (USA)

I recommend Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training (TPLC) because of my personal and professional experience with Alan Seale’s work. The value of TPLC manifests on many levels that include personal growth, continuing coach education, organizational development, and most of all, its focus on care, community, and serious change in the world. Alan eschews formulas and coaching methodologies in favor of potential-based work that builds on the power of universal connection and co-creation. Our Center for Non-Profit Coaching (CNPC) emerged as a result of TPLC. Unlike training programs that wane over time, TPLC gets stronger as a navigation tool to keep our community and our clients in touch with what matters most: Leadership and service to the world.

Since 2012, I have had the privilege to be enormously inspired and empowered by Alan and his work. I had already taken many steps in my journey from being a “thinker” to being a high-sensitive “feeler,” yet working with Alan took me to a much higher level.

What has helped me in particular is, simply put, Alan’s presence. In an open, totally non-judgmental way, he invites you to explore whatever is arising for you so that you can understand or receive the insights that are waiting for you. He effortlessly creates an environment in which you can easily tap into more intuitive sources of knowing. His unique approach to coaching and leadership creates a strong interconnection between “being” and “doing” that has enabled me to fully enjoy life with a quiet mind, a relaxed body, and an inspired heart! Integrating Transformational Presence into my work has brought an ease and acceptance to my coaching that allows me to be present with my clients on a very deep level.

Jayne L. Garrett, PCC (USA)

As a seasoned professional, I have taken many coach training courses over the years. Not one compares to the caliber of the five-day Transformational Presence Leadership Coaching program offered by Alan Seale. 

The uniqueness of this program is the offering of experiential learning with inter-developmental conversations, which result in building a powerful connection with colleagues and peers. These connections of diverse styles and expertise attract and feed the strength of the Transformational Presence community by offering opportunities of development and collaboration. The methodologies offered in this program are relevant to both clients and your life.

Different from other trainers who solely feed your mind with knowledge and skills, Alan's energy and style are inviting, experiential and uplifting. You leave the gatherings he leads and facilitates with a renewed sense of purpose as well as tangible new tools and techniques. These takeaways are immediately applicable to your work and your life. Passion for this work beams through Alan with laser focus and pure intention, which maximizes the learning experience.

TPLC has allowed me to go deep on many levels—both with myself and with clients—in order to gain clarity, insights, and action items. Additionally, TPLC techniques provide the ability to go wide—to tap into the greater field of potential to create. 

Making changes and creating a new professional/personal life can feel like a mental exercise or hard work. However, through TPLC and Alan’s approaches, realizations naturally arise. Space is given; outcomes are not forced. From that space, shifts in perspective and strategies simply flow. Clients go deep in their process, but it somehow feels effortless. Subtle, powerful, and practical.

Personally, since participating in the TPLC three years ago, I’ve been able to better align how I live, work, and play: creating energetically as well as physically, plugging into something bigger than me to seed possibilities and make them a reality. Transformational Presence has enabled me to live the way I coach, and to coach the way I live.

If this resonates with you, then you’ve found your coaching tribe!

In March 2011, I followed the TPLC program with Alan. After the first day, I knew, “This is what it is all about: Presence is the essence.” The uniqueness about this program is the combination of transformational coaching and leadership with working on your own presence. It is about connecting with the greatest potential and with the universal energy. Before I came in contact with Alan’s work, I always was looking for more. Now I don’t need to anymore. I look deeper instead. I now have created my own training together with Claartje Driessen—Transformational Presence Coaching with children and young people. If we approach children from this Transformational Presence, it would help us come closer to creating a world that works.

In March 2011, I followed the TPLC program with Alan. After the first day, I knew, “This is what it is all about: Presence is the essence.” The uniqueness about this program is the combination of transformational coaching and leadership with working on your own presence. It is about connecting with the greatest potential and with the universal energy. Before I came in contact with Alan’s work, I always was looking for more. Now I don’t need to anymore.

At the end of 2009, I was just about to leave the comforts of a corporate job to follow the deeper calling of my heart. I knew this was the beginning of a new adventure that would require profound shifts in my way of life, but I wasn’t sure where to start.

After my first workshop with Alan, I could sense that Transformational Presence would play an important role in enabling this major transition. In the following years, I joined the Transformational Presence Leadership and Coaching Program (TPLC) and became an active participant in the Transformational Presence community. I developed the skills and confidence to anchor the next phase of my work around my deeper calling, while creating an effective connection with the realities of today’s world.

Working in this space between “what is” and “what could be” comes with many creative tensions for which traditional problem solving skills no longer work. With Alan, I have learnt to tap into the “energy of potential” that is contained in these tensions and become a steward for the new opportunities to break through. What started off as a coaching tool or mechanism to change my work has now become a natural and very fulfilling way of life.

I highly recommend TPLC and Supervised Mentor Coaching for those professionals and people who want to make a significant step in their evolution. Not only does it open the door of ancient wisdom; it provides a practical, easy-to-live-and-use approach in all areas of life—personal and professional. TPLC provides a structure and approach for being and doing. If you want to develop your own higher knowledge and wisdom, to equally understand and feel where you are, who you are, and the impact of your presence in the world, and help others to do the same, enroll in TPLC. Transformational Presence is a breakthrough program.

One and a half years ago, as an experienced business coach, I jumped into the Transformational Presence world with Alan and the TPLC training. What an experience-based learning of who we really are and what our bigger potential is, without all of our stories that get in the way! Alan makes it so practical, so friendly, so natural, so aligned, so all-inclusive.

In addition to my personal growth of feeling more confident and grounded, I am able to support teams and organizations much more easily now—to help them get out of being stuck in their challenges and situations and moving them towards their greater potential.

The additional Mentor Coaching Class with Alan was spot on my potential in being and coaching, and it deepened my focus on transforming the client’s relationship towards the issue or topic that we are working with rather than just trying to “fix” the issue. This makes a huge difference in our work. What a great and inspiring coach you are, Alan. A big thank you!

I attended Alan’s Transformational Presence Leadership and Coaching (TPLC) program in the autumn of 2013 in Bucharest, Romania. At the time, I was the Regional HR Director of a large pharmaceutical multi-national corporation. I wanted to augment my coaching skills and learn beyond my formal coaching qualifications.

TPLC has a strong theoretical core, which finds its validation in ancient wisdom as well as modern-day quantum physics. Even more useful, though, was the application part of the theory, which came through simple yet profoundly practical techniques. The best part of the techniques is their instant demonstration and to see them delivering results! I now use the TPLC concepts and techniques in my coaching sessions. They work very well and help my clients.

Alan is a warm and authentic person. He has a personal understanding and special connection with every participant in his programs. His work is incredibly important in today’s world. It offers fresh perspective, energy, wisdom, and hope. I am extremely happy that we met!

I knew the program would be a safe space to learn and explore and I fully expected to take my coaching to a new level. However, the program blew me away. I was personally transformed—getting answers to who I am called to be as a coach. And I left with deeply essential yet truly practical tools to facilitate the transformation of my own clients. This program is for everyone—coach, leader, facilitator, human beings called to co-create with what wants to happen from the largest perspective and potential and make a real difference in the world.

After having been working on personal leadership for many years in different ways, Alan Seale has added something new and important to me. What first struck me about Alan Seale was his presence. By being in his presence, he showed me how to really welcome everything that happens, even the things that may not feel welcome. He showed me how to work in a completely different way, focusing on growth and potential, our true nature.

Thanks to these experiences, my way of perceiving has changed and, as a consequence, my working in coaching and organizational training have fundamentally changed. Moreover, in the TPLC program (Foundation program and the Supervised Mentor Coaching teleclass series), I have learned many new coaching tools. Alan offers them in abundance! However, TPLC is much more than a set of tools. It is a way of perceiving—an approach that opens up the potential in myself and in my clients. I feel great gratitude for the gift that Alan shares.

Alan is Transformational Presence (and a transformational present). I’ve studied both Transformational Presence and Theory U (Otto Scharmer’s work). Alan brings Theory U alive. Alan uses not so many words, but rather helps you experience (your) potential through his powerful tools. To me, being aligned is most important. Then I’m the instrument. It’s hard to explain in words how TPLC enriched my life and work. To put it simply, TPLC reduces drama and brings a lot more choice, commitment, and vitality. So necessary in these times.

The TPLC was for me both tumultuous and very valuable. I came home feeling changed in my connection to my heart. My heart had opened. I started working with my life instead of pushing against it. As I dared to listen and follow my intuition, things started happening.

During the months after the TPLC, people started coming to me for coaching. It was the first time I could be myself and speak about who I really am. At work, I finally had he courage to start experimenting with the new exercises and tools that Alan taught us. People didn’t always understand how they worked, but they were very happy with the results! My courage grew and so did theirs. All of this has helped me to trust following the energy and using my intuition in my work.

Alan helped me to connect to my heart and to follow the energy of what wanted to happen. As a result, I have a new worldview about how I can influence my life path towards happiness and freedom and now am helping others to do the same.
