New Life for Old Brands via Inc

I love this post. The quote, "brands (that are looking to be revived) must keep some connections to their pasts to maintain 'authenticity'" really makes sense to me >> http://bit.ly/Ykgnb6

In your life what are the stories of leadership in action that have happened to you?

Check out my latest post that relates this question to a special moment that happened to me at one of my favorite hangout spots in Oceanside, the Hill Street Cafe >> http://bit.ly/15Unh6t

Introduction

My name is Alan Shelton and I am corporate executive mentor, speaker and author of Awakened Leadership. Like the lyrics to The Who song, ‘The Seeker’, ‘I’ve tried to find the key to fifty million fables,’ so I help corporate executives grow internally and develop better leadership skills through the power of storytelling.”

I grew up immersed in the sixties’ vision of infinite possibility. I began my career in 1977 at Price Waterhouse, structuring and negotiating Fortune 500 merger and acquisition transactions. After decades of managing and advising large multinational companies, as well as the type of early-stage organizations that launched my highly successful career, I migrated to leadership coaching. Having experienced my own awakening, I began to ignite others who want to live authentically in the global corporate world, supporting them to deconstruct the assumptions that conceal the doorway to living as the awakened self. 

My belief is that there truly is leadership in all of us and by relating easily accessible personal stories, from my life experiences and well known concepts, to the role of internal and external leadership, I hope to help you become the best version of yourself.

True leadership is not as tidy as you read in books. It happens like it happens.

While my upbringing has shaped me to be appear as a casual, surf and sleep leadership guru with a penchant for long hair, amazing Mexican food and traveling around the world living out the seeker’s quest, there is much more to me than meets the eye. A very big part of my journey includes a highly successful career in the corporate financial world.

As I have taken this journey, I have learned a very important thing: All of the sophisticated complicated systems that make up today’s global world are nested in the stories that gave us our start.

When I was 10 years old, I was very excited about my very first skateboard. That skateboard allowed me to surf anywhere I could see in front of my eyes. All I had to do is put a set of wheels on what I had always seen as a surfboard.

And so I ask you, “where’s the boy with the skateboard?” Where are you in this complicated world that you you live? In the journey of awakening, it is in your version of the boy with a skateboard that you will find your answers.
