Welcome to a brave new world. As we attempt to make our way back from an unprecedented sea of change each of us is being guided to reconsider what matters. From the Great Resignation to the war in the Ukraine many of us are waking up to the realization that sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option. We’re being challenged to look at our families, organizations and institutions and within those halls - who has “the power” versus who does not. We are being invited to revisit what we thought was “true” about things we’ve taken for granted—from the quality of our leadership to the potential of our children. But nowhere are we more challenged, or more called, than in how we’re being forced to look at ourselves—who we are versus who we want to be. We’re being asked to defy the odds and push against the status quo in honor of a more authentic and powerful existence. Every single one of us has a calling. Whether we recognize it or not, whether we believe we are capable of it or not; yes, even whether we like it or not. There is something that each of us is here to do and be in this world that only we can do and be. How do we find our authentic voice? And how do we use it to make our highest contribution in service to our greatest desired impact? Join Move The Crowd Founder & CEO and author of The Calling, Rha Goddess, in a courageous conversation about what it means to reimagine power and redefine success.
