There comes a time in a more human leadership journey where something radically changes. Everything may seem okay on the surface, but there is a strong desire in you to move beyond the status quo. You just know there are better ways to solve the problems and counter the challenges facing your business.
You begin to see a new possibility, a new goal, or a new game-changing vision for your group or organization. You sense the imperative for a change that is connected to deeply held values and beliefs and personal aspirations.
You feel compelled to act, and make the critical transition from personal ambition, the “I”, to a leadership journey focused on the “We”, realizing the power of a united team rallied around a single Mighty Cause as a pathway to positive change in the organization as well as of amazing personal growth for the leader.
You’re at a critical crossroad. Are you ready for this heroic call to great leadership?
In this engaging and inspiring free webinar, renowned leadership experts Dr. Kathy Cramer & Terry “Starbucker” St. Marie have joined forces to present Part 1 of a six-part series on the heroic journey that awaits leaders who boldly tackle challenges and opportunities in order to achieve greatness for their organizations.
The heroic leadership journey calls upon Joseph Campbell’s narrative framework to help leaders see their paths forward and navigate the predictable (and unpredictable) head and tail winds. It consists of six phases: The Call, Resistance to the Call and Meeting Mentors, Threshold Crossing, the Journey, the Supreme Ordeal and Victory, and the Return Home.

It’s a great framework for leaders to create a narrative for their leadership and make a deep and fulfilling heart and mind connection – taking their leadership to a higher, and more human level.
This webinar will introduce the six phases and their importance and context to great leadership, and then focus on The Call, so you can identify your game-changing vision and Mighty Cause and take that critical first step on your personal leadership journey.
Registration for Part 1 is free – a great chance to sample Kathy and Terry’s full six-part Heroic Journey series before paid registration begins when it resumes in 2016. Seats are limited so be sure to sign up early.
- An Overview Of The 6 Phases of The Heroic Journey – Why understanding and applying this framework for organizational change and innovation is so important to great leadership.
- The Call, in Myth: Joseph Campbell discovered that all story-telling, consciously or not, follows the ancient patterns of myth, and the characters in these stories, and particularly the hero, represent true models of the workings of the human psyche, reflecting universal concerns. Kathy talks about The Call in myth to help us understand its connection to leadership, using the example of Luke Skywalker from Star Wars to show humanity’s everlasting need be a part of something bigger than themselves, and how neuroscience plays an important role in feeding our desire to step forward.
- The Call, for Effective Leaders: The effective leader has to be as vividly prominent as the game-changing challenge for the enterprise itself, and the Heroic Journey provides a series of predicable milestones to measure progress. The Call encourages the leader to infuse the imperative for change with their deeply held values and beliefs and personal aspirations, thus creating the “why” behind the “what”. Kathy and Terry will talk about how the leader can use The Call to elevate a game-changing enterprise challenge by tapping into the mind, the heart and the spirit under a single Mighty Cause.
- The Call, in Real Life: In his successful career as a cable TV executive, Terry made his own personal journey to achieve what he calls the “success trifecta”: a profitable business, a happy team, and a fulfilled leader. It started with a Call of his own, a real-life example of the start of the heroic journey. Terry will talk about the secrets of his important progression from “I” to “We” as the leader of over 1,000 employees who initially were a unhappy, untrusting and disillusioned group and eventually became a top-performing, cohesive and happy team under a Mighty Cause.
- Practical Takeaways – Kathy and Terry connect all the dots between the Myth, Effective Leadership, and Real-life with keys,questions and exercises that can help you find and answer your own personal Call.
