It’s official. I’m a LEAP graduate! Words aren’t enough to capture how happy I am, and how excited I am to move forward. Some of you have been asking me what LEAP is, since I refer to it quite often in my blog. As I’ve finally graduated, I can tell you about LEAP more wholeheartedly now!
My Personal Experience with the Trilogy
LEAP has been amazing for me. Everyone’s LEAP journey is different. For me the gift of LEAP was gentle power. But before I tell you about that, let me tell you about the first two workshops of the trilogy: FLEX (Foundations of Leadership Excellence) and ALC (Advance Leadership Course).
FLEX: Embracing Your Greatness
FLEX (Foundations of Leadership Excellence) is a 2-day workshop that heightens your sense of self-awareness; you learn truths about yourself that are empowering, that are beautiful, that are GREAT! Sometimes we downplay our strengths to the point that we forget how great we are. FLEX helps pinpoint in you what is great about you. What I love about FLEX is that the journey is experiential and personal. So my takeaway from the program will definitely be different from yours.

ALC: I Surrender
Next would be ALC, which is about overcoming fears and coming face to face with truths about yourself you may be refusing to acknowledge. It’s a very revealing and illuminating process. Through ALC I faced baggage I didn’t even think I carried, but was apparently digging roots in to my life and holding me down. My gosh. After ALC I felt so free. I knew myself more and knew how I could make my relationships work better. So liberating.
My ALC Group
Some of my LEAP friends told me that during ALC time, I had a “Don’t come near me” aura. But ALC helped me become more vulnerable and open. I was surprised at the improved quality of relationships I had simply by learning how to approach people warmly, and welcoming others with warmth too. It wasn’t an easy experience, but it’s led me to where I am now. My ALC/LEAP friends have shared that after ALC, I became more approachable. And then throughout LEAP, I became more loving.
LEAP: My Love Nurtures Greatness
LEAP is the final part of the trilogy. LEAP (Leadership Excellence Achievement Program) is a 60 to 70-day coaching program. It’s like the practical application of FLEX and ALC. You’ll be assigned a personal life coach who you’ll touch base with regularly, as well as a support group. It’s a beautiful process, and I am amazed at how my perspective on relationships, career and life in general has become lighter and more grounded because of LEAP. LEAP’s gift to you will be different from the gift I received. It’s a very personal journey.
My LEAP Council
My LEAP family: LEAP 61 Wholehearted
That was how gentle power was born for me. I discovered I could still be responsible and committed, but not controlling. I learned how to be more vulnerable. It was so difficult! But through the love of the coaches and my council, and my own surrendering, I was able to let go of being controlling and embrace being more loving. Gentle power.
Of all the pictures I have in LEAP, this portrait best captures how I’ve transformed.
