What Is a Corporate Healer?
According to the Oxford Reference Dictionary, to heal means: 1) To cause an injury to become sound or healthy again; 2) To “put right” (differences etc.); 3) To alleviate (sorrow etc.).
Sign me up for all three and more!
For, when I look back upon my 25-year employed career plus examine eight-plus years of entrepreneurship thus far, I notice that the degree of wounding I and others in my expanding circles have experienced is virtually incalculable.
As I so often express in my facilitation, coaching and speaking engagements, I have personally suffered (and survived) every form of Toxic Boss (never mind employee!) known to humankind save for sexual harassment.
The original injuries healed (through countless hours of therapy and personal coaching), I can now express my sincere gratitude toward all the truly harmful individuals who have crossed my path over the past three decades. They have given me a significant portion of my Life’s Purpose. It is to transform the workplace by inspiring leaders to inspire results through inspired employees.
More and more, as I navigate today’s challenging corporate landscape, I see people immediately “get it” that there is a Tsunami-sized Talent War at every industry’s doorstep to attract, retain and engage the Next-Generation Workforce.
No more for the Millennials to put up with the b-s Baby Boomers and preceding cohorts have endured at the hands of lethal heads of business! The times of “we can get more of where they came from” and “they better get on board or else” are mercifully over!
A Battle Royale is underway between the status quo and forces for Transformation. I squarely place myself in the second camp.
Ignited by an article read years ago, I now claim such titles as Catalyst and Pioneer-Visionary. Like a worker handling radioactive material, I don protective gear in the form of an invisible suit of armor while leading the charge to heal organizational toxicity.
Please join me in partnering to repair the torn threads of corporate ethics and personal integrity. I invite your sharing with open arms!
I honestly pray that by the time my planned-112 years on Earth are at an end, everyone will be employed in workplaces where profit is realized as an outcome of treating people right rather than an all-consuming goal. My commitment is bone-deep and never-wavering.
Only then will the soul-wounding survived at the hands of so many dysfunctional leaders have been made worthwhile by being transmuted into a legacy of soul-inspiring leadership.
