Encore: How To Practice Whole-Self Leadership, with Ana Polanco

This is an encore presentation of a wonderful conversation I had with my friend and colleague Ana Polanco last Spring.

Ana is an intuitive, international coach, storyteller, and wisdom keeper who helps culturally diverse women and social change organizations find new ways of leading.

She is a beautiful case study in how to do and lead deep social change work in a way that is aligned with one’s values, past, and purpose.

This conversation is about sustainable leadership, and about how leading from a whole-self perspective requires practice and replenishment.

Ana and I get into the nuts and bolts of what it means to move through the world and as one’s whole self, how to reshape our own leadership practices to make them more reflective of our whole selves, and most importantly, how to bring work and lead in ways that refill our cups rather than deplete us.
