The Edge Walkers and Resonance
Come to the Edge

“Come to the edge.

We might fall.

Come to the edge.

It's too high!


And they came,

And he pushed,

And they flew.”

- Christopher Logue

I’ve learned over the years that my most effective executive coaching leadership clients know the “why” of what they are passionate in achieving. They get excited in my office telling me inspiring stories of their hopes and struggles. They have a growth versus fixed mindset, and are optimistic and forward thinking.

One of my CEO executive coaching clients confided in me this week that he was struggling to convince several of his senior executives on changing their company culture. The data from a recent company engagement survey indicated that far too many employees weren’t engaged with the mission and vision of the company.

The CEO wanted to execute a new cutting edge strategy for the company, but was encountering a lot of resistance from some executive team members fearful of change. We engaged in a pretty fierce coaching conversation about how to help his leaders develop a more growth-oriented mindset with global compassion. They needed to learn how to create resonance, and embrace the new strategy and change.

At our next coaching meeting, the CEO reported that his senior executives found the new strategy provided resonance and were on board. The members of the executive team thought that if he was so passionate about his belief in creating a new culture and strategy, that they began to pay attention to their own habits and patterns of behavior that were counterproductive to creating a high performance culture.

Resonance is defined as the following:





Resonance is the true alignment of energy in relationship with someone or something else. It gives us clarity for how we show up physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually in our life. It calls us to become more of who we really are, to show up whole and open our eyes a little wider to the world.

Resonance inspires and moves us – powerfully, passionately and purposefully – to fulfill our potential. It enables us to embrace life completely.

With a greater understanding of resonance, we can create powerful connections and effectively drive transformation and conscious change in our personal lives, professional careers and even global organizations.

Developing resonance is foundational for your ongoing success. And best of all, when developed energetically, changes made in your life are not only profound – they are sustainable.

“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you

Don't go back to sleep!

You must ask for what you really want.

Don't go back to sleep!

People are going back and forth

across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,

The door is round and open

Don't go back to sleep!” – Rumi

Emotionally intelligent leaders know that creating a positive workplace culture and climate where emotions are appropriately expressed increases engagement and moves things forward. In order for people to be fully engaged, they need to feel they are following leaders who inspire them emotionally.

You can develop a more positive mindset by working with an executive coach. The investment is well worth the reward: your ability to influence the future, your career and your personal-development capabilities.

Are you working in a company where executive coaches provide leadership development to help leaders put mindful leadership into action? Does your organization provide executive coaching for leaders who need to be more positive? Positive leaders tap into their emotional intelligence and social intelligence skills to create a more fulfilling future.

One of the most powerful questions you can ask yourself is “Am I a resonant leader who helps individuals and organizations achieve their highest potential, flourish at work, experience elevating energy and achieve levels of effectiveness difficult to attain otherwise?” Emotionally intelligent and socially intelligent organizations provide executive coaching to help leaders develop more positive teams.
