What is a ‘New-Paradigm Enterpreneur?’

affirmation stonesRecently the lovely Julia Kious Zabell (www.beinvigorated.com), in her telesummit ‘The Conscious Consortium’ invited reflections on ‘what are the qualities of a New-Paradigm Enterpreneur?’  Sharing my responses here.  Would love your reflections on this question!

 Transformative: They see the current system of business as in transition and take responsibility for their role in shaping that transition. They see their business structures, processes, marketing and interactions with clients as opportunities for catalyzing and contributing to that transformation. They see that wherever they exist within the larger ecosystem of business their influence ripples forward, whether or not they see the ultimate results.

Big-picture alignment: their business serves their own needs, the needs of their clients and the greater needs of the world.

Visionary: They hold larger perspective on and visions for the earth, humanity and all of life. They are clear about the difference their business is here to make.

Integrative: They integrate and strive to include / heal polarities and restore wholeness: e.g. they seek to take the best of the past / crumbling paradigm and weave it what is emergent, they honour both masculine and feminine ways of being etc.

Creative: They are on the edge of thought leadership, helping to define larger systems, structures and alternative ways of being and doing.

Self-aware: They know they have blind spots and partial perspectives, so and are open, dedicated to questioning, to curiosity about others’ experiences, to honouring their own inner diversity. They can question and critique and reinvent themselves. Ultimately, they are guided by their best / highest selves.

Co-creative: They act in collaboration and support of other businesses. They are co-creative with life and what is trying to emerge on behalf of future generations.

Wise: They are in touch with the deepest currents of their being, and trust it to guide them and to grow through uncertainty, chaos, adversity and the unknown. They demonstrate wisdom leadership.
