In one of my spring blogposts, I announced that I would soon be organizing the WATT: Who’s at the table? WATT is to be a monthly program featuring inspiring speakers. I am proud to announce that the first speaker will be Alan Seale, a great inspirer of The Round Table of Life!
Alan comes all the way from Boston to Bloemendaal to offer this introductory workshop on Transformational Presence. Later that week, he will be leading the five-day Transformational Presence Leadership and Coach Training here in The Netherlands. The following week, he will offer two one-day workshops and then the four-day Soul Mission, Life Vision workshop before returning to Boston. So make sure you don’t miss this–I’d love to welcome you to this first WATT!

An introduction to Transformational Presence
A powerful conscious living and leadership movement is now emerging in many parts of the world. It’s a movement built on the conviction that, in any initiative, all stakeholders can be served, all people and the environment can be honored and respected, and economic models can serve something greater than our individual selves.
Within this movement, there is also widespread agreement that, in order to lead the world forward in the most effective, impactful, and transformative ways, new skills and tools, as well as broader capacities for awareness and perception, will be required. These new skills and capacities require us to stretch far beyond the familiar, analytical, knowledge-based approaches found in traditional learning environments into more creative, discovery-based, transformational approaches.
Going forward, we need leaders who know how to be present with “what is” – to feel, sense, and listen to the energy and discover what wants to happen next. We need leaders who can be comfortable in not knowing the answers – and maybe not even knowing yet which questions to ask. We need curious, imaginative leaders who are willing to explore without knowing what they will find, yet trust that clues for next steps will appear. And leaders who, when they sense these next steps, are not afraid to take action.
We need leaders who are “at home in their own skin” – who are comfortable with who they are, and who fully embrace their own talents, skills, and gifts. At the same time, they thrive on continued learning through their leadership experience. They constantly seek to broaden their horizons of understanding and awareness. As they continue to learn and grow, they also create the best possible conditions for others to thrive and develop to their greatest potential – to experience their own breakthroughs in understanding, awareness, perception, and action.
We need leaders who recognize that everything is connected to everything else – who embody the understanding that the world is built on a matrix of relationships, and that everything that happens is a part of a larger flow. Nothing exists in isolation. Everything exists within a larger context. And at the most fundamental level, everything is energy in motion. When we approach circumstances, situations, visions, and dreams as energy, forward movement is greatly accelerated.
This is the leadership that will transform our world. And this is what Transformational Presence is all about.
I hope to see you on Sunday September 25th!
