Announcing the Publication of Janet Steinwedel's New Book!
We're delighted to announce that Janet Steinwedel’s new book, The Golden Key to Executive Coaching, is now available for coaches, HR professionals, counselors and all who work with the development of others.
This book explores the intentionality that goes into one’s development when one chooses to become an Executive Coach. It is an urging for all who wish to work with the development of others to create their own in-depth, operational approach through understanding the intricacies of their own emotional and very human life.
Jung asserted, “everyone should have a Red Book,” and Janet has taken that to heart. Her commitment to her own continuous development and consciousness include regularly asking herself the deep questions that make her work meaningful. When have you asked yourself questions such as these: “What is leading you?” “Where is it leading you?” “Why are you doing what you’re doing?” “What value are you bringing?”
We believe this is an essential text for new and experienced coaches who aim to do good and useful work in the world on the way to their own individuation. We’ve been told it is also a very useful text for ministers and counselors and all who work with the development and personal growth of others.

WORTH REFLECTING ON
“Wholly unprepared, they embark upon the second half of life. Or, are there perhaps colleges for forty-year olds which prepare them for their coming life and its demands as the ordinary colleges introduce our young people to knowledge of the world?
No, thoroughly unprepared we take the step into the afternoon of life; worse still, we take this step with the false assumption that our truth and ideals will serve us as hitherto.
But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the programme of life's morning; for what was great in the morning will be little at evening, and what in the morning was true will at evening have become a lie.“
EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP REQUIRES INTEGRITY AND AUTHENTICITY
These characteristics provide a leader with the credibility necessary to get others to participate and enthusiastically contribute to the accomplishment of a common goal. The result: engagement, increased alignment and stronger organizations.
Authenticity comes from knowing who you are, what you want, and what you're inspired to be. Most business people are so focused on the task at hand that they do not take time out to explore the questions that lead to greater authenticity. We facilitate this process with leaders, challenging them to stay connected to what's really important. We teach people how to reflect and connect: reflecting on past decisions and connecting those insights to future actions. This work brings integrity to the leaders we work with ensuring a clarity of message and style that allows them to lead most effectively.
THE WORK OF A LIFETIME
Because of the ever-changing landscape of today’s global business and the maturity and wisdom required to be successful in it, leaders at all levels must continuously learn new skills. This includes leaders in the boardroom, leaders of functions, leaders of teams, and leaders of projects. Leader’s Insight knows how to expand your organization's learning capability.
What Will it Take?
⤷ A spiraling inward to learn about and reflect on oneself—values, needs, personality, interests, experiences, defenses, concerns, joys...
⤷ A spiraling outward to share with others what one has learned and to inquire about what one still needs to know.
⤷ It requires agility—a flexibility and nimbleness to adjust and try new ideas and approaches, to work with new people in new ways.
⤷ It takes a resilience that ensures each person can cope with the pressures, challenges and disappointments of living life at our edges.
Resistance to change and defensive postures holds many capable leaders back from being their best. The life-long learner knows there is value in every experience. The agile leader is able to move forward despite unforeseen barriers. The added capability of resilience enables a leader to bounce back and maintain leadership.
The nautilus shell is the perfect symbol for one’s journey of learning, living, finding new places within for greater strength and buoyancy, and gaining new understandings of who the Self is—making room for our growth and continuing that spiraling journey of insight our whole life long.
