1. Centre, Ground, and Deepen


When the world is changing and churning it can be easy to feel knocked off balance from time to time.

Like the roots of a tree, our ability to centre and ground keeps us upright when storms are raging. And when times are calm it determines how far we are able to spread the branches of our leadership out into larger challenges and roles.

This chapter contains tools that enable you to centre and ground at will and to deepen your connection with who you are and what matters most to you. It contains tools for regular practice that will increase your self-awareness as a leader, enabling you to get more out of the later chapters of the book. It forms the foundation on which the rest of your inner leadership will be built.
