The Story Behind “Bolder moves, Higher levels”

You might have noticed our URL, www.boldermoves.com. Wondering what that has to do with our company name, Authentic Leadership International, and our work as change leadership facilitators?

We know – first-hand – how self-doubt and a lack of the right tools and resources can block you from achieving the highest levels that you’re capable of. We also know about the joy, fulfillment, and freedom and the subsequent expanded results that await when you boldly break through barriers to transform into the best you possible.

Please don’t take our word for it. The world’s premiere 360 degree tool, The Leadership Circle, and its accompanying book, Mastering Leadership by Leadership Circle Founders Bob Anderson and Bill Adams, refer to “Courageous Authenticity” as the most powerful trait in determining a leader’s effectiveness.

Change Versus Transformation:

There’s a difference between change and transformation. We can change our clothes. We can change our haircut. We can change where you live or the car we drive. But we can just as easily change our hair back to the way it was, move back to our old home town and reclaim our former wheels.

Not so with transformation.

Transformation happens at a much deeper level. It’s about going deep within to the depths of our souls to meet the bigger version of ourselves. A shift in consciousness happens, and returning to the “way things were” is no longer possible. That’s our definition of transformation.

Say Hello to a Greater Version of You:

Truth be told, it takes a lot of courage to be authentic in today’s world. We’re often asked what it means to be bold. Our answer is always the same: you get to decide that. It’s different for everyone. That’s part of what authenticity is all about.

Our purpose as change leadership facilitators at ALI is to help you transform into that “bigger” version of yourself. Your skills, your education, your confidence…have taken you this far. Yet deep within, you know that there’s so much more.

What Does Transformation Look Like?

Our clients often tell us that they are better able to get in touch with their true selves, to more clearly understand where their limiting beliefs about themselves and about what’s possible originate, and to muster the courage needed to step out of that old way of being which no longer works…into a life and career which are infinitely more fulfilling.

That might mean leaving a less satisfying job to take on a more fulfilling one, stepping away to focus on family, speaking up to claim your inner power, going after that promotion, or expanding your reach (or any combination of those!). In short, it means you get to shine even more brightly…

Now let’s take those bold moves – and soar to higher levels – together.
