In thirty years of facilitating change with leaders and clients, I've heard a phrase, "There's an elephant in the room." over and over again. This phrase means that we're not talking about something important, which is often the truth; yet, even once acknowledged, dealing with an elephant is a complicated and sometimes confounding matter. In this keynote, I was asked to provide a primer on how to deal with change, and perhaps how to lead a transformation. Along the way, we decided to have some fun too!
Seeing True™ is a moment of epiphany that is so pronounced that subsequent changes in direction or behavior are dramatically altered for the better. The Greeks called this “metanoia,” which means "change of mind," though it might translate better today as “a profound change of heart.” In the Seeing True framework, we focus on transformation as the desired result, and forgiveness and relationships as the spaces in which we practice.
