Today’s rapidly changing and increasingly complex world demands an entirely different set of leadership skills than the world of even just a generation ago. We need much greater capacities for awareness, understanding, perception, creativity, innovation, and resilience. When leading in complexity, it’s not so much about solving and fixing and much more about sensing and navigating. There are messages everywhere if we pay attention. And there is wisdom and intelligence hidden within every situation and circumstance, every challenge and opportunity. Alan Seale’s keynotes bring these concepts to the forefront for our interactive and experiential exploration and discovery. He always leaves his audience with a sense of a next step and a path forward.
Transformation happens through process. It happens at the intersection of our inner and outer experience. At the heart of Alan’s work are simple yet powerful skills, tools, frameworks, and approaches that open the door for expansive intuitive thinking and understanding far beyond what the intellect alone can grasp—skills and approaches that can help you lead and facilitate breakthrough, transformation, and effective action and impact for those you serve, even in the most complex and challenging situations and circumstances.
Alan will speak to your particular needs and context, whether in a virtual or in-person presentation.

The In-Between Space: When the Past is Over and the Future Hasn’t Shown Up Yet
Navigating life and leadership in such unsettling times can be challenging. So much is happening, both inside us and all around us. How do we find our way? How do we move forward when times are so uncertain? It seems like often we’re waiting for something to happen so we know where to go next, yet that can create a powerless feeling. It’s a passive approach. What if there was an effective proactive approach?
Spanish poet Antonio Machado wrote: Wanderer, there is no path; the path is made by walking.
What if we can only find our way forward by engaging with what is right here, right now? Even if it feels like nothing is happening. By walking with the present moment and circumstance, by sitting down in it, and being willing to be fully present with what is (or isn’t) happening, we transform a “waiting” space into a dynamic “liminal” space—a transition space, a threshold, or a “crossing over” space. We discover that something is trying to get our attention. Something wants to happen. The space in between what was and what will be begins to come alive. It may not look like what we expected, yet nevertheless something starts to move. We discover “liminal” space as proactive space—a space where invitations are waiting for us to say “Yes.”
Come with an open heart and mind, ready to learn, experiment, and discover. Bring your current challenges and opportunities and let’s find out together what possibilities and invitations are waiting right here, right now, and find your next step forward.
