Powerful Programs to Live an Inspired, Excellent Life: FLEX and ALC

by

Stepping out of your comfort zone doesn’t only mean doing things that are new to you. It also means going on an intense road of self-discovery. On this journey you’ll discover strengths you didn’t know you had, which then inspire you to become happier, more aware of yourself, and most importantly, most connected to yourself. There are many books that cover this topic. What I’ve been learning lately though is learning from other people, strangers even, can help you embrace life outside your comfort zone. Workshops have been helping me do that, particularly two programs from OCCI (Organizational Change Consultants International).

The Road to Self-Discovery and Transformation

FLEX OCCI WORKSHOPS. For an inspired, excellent life!
{Trilogy of Workshops. I’m now a graduate of FLEX and ALC!}
The two seminars I went to, FLEX (Foundations of Leadership Excellence) and ALC (Advanced Leadership Course), were life-changing. I am grasping for words as I type this because words really are not enough to capture the many learnings I got from those courses. Here are the key takeaways though:

Through FLEX, I realized my potential to become even more significant. Before FLEX, I was struggling with my self-esteem, my impatience, my added value. The 2-day FLEX journey helped me examine the values I had, and helped me determine which ones were driving me forward, which ones were holding me back. After FLEX, I felt so much more positive about the future. I was on a workshop high a few days after, and honestly, I thought it would die down. The beautiful thing about it was that the transformation FLEX blessed me with still stays with me. The lessons are not just in my head but in my heart. Perhaps that is why, even if the workshop was still last May, I am still on a high! FLEX has helped me significantly at work too!

If FLEX helped me realize how successful I can be by being true to myself, ALC helped me face the darkest shadows that have been truly holding me back. ALC was an intense 4 days of overcoming fears and coming face to face with baggage I never even thought I carried. INTENSE is really the word I would use to describe the experience. I use the term positively! Through ALC, I unearthed a lot of truths I was refusing to acknowledge… these truths were digging roots in my life that were holding me down. Way, way down. After ALC, I feel so liberated, so light, so empowered. Most importantly? I feel more at peace with my relationships. There is beauty in facing your shadows. It’s a painful process, but the beauty is when you bring things to light.

There is a 3rd part of the journey. It is called LEAP (Leadership Excellence Achievement Program). This last part of the trilogy is a program I will take in the next few months too. :)

OCCI Program Schedules

I highly encourage you to give yourself the gift of transformation and self-discovery! You may want to come on your own, or part of a group. Here are the schedules:

I was part of the FLEX 184 batch, and the ALC 138 batch.

Blessings of Friendship

Apart from the many life lessons you will get and apply, you will also make very good friends. Coming from this introvert (I’m an ISFJ to be exact!), initiating conversations with others is really difficult for me. FLEX and ALC helped me learn to trust others more fully, and I’m so happy that these classmates of mine are now in my life. I made new brothers and sisters, who I love, love, love so much. Here are some pictures from my FLEX and ALC graduations!

FLEX TONI ROMMEL
{Rommel has been my friend for more than 12 years. He and Gigi (not in the pic!) have been instrumental to my journey. He and Gigi are super inspiring! They are my role models! Thank you, QT and Gigi! I love you guys!}
FLEX ORTIGAS
{The seminars are held in Ortigas, specifically Emerald Bldg.}

Live an inspired, excellent life!

    Ang sarap basahin ng post na ito!

    Rommel and i went to the same high school. It took him years to decide to take leap — and what a leap of faith it was! Now, his life is on the up and up!

    Gigi and i went to the same college. We were never close in then. But because we have both taken Leap, we now feel a deeper connection with each other!

    I am sooooo happy when people i know take the trilogy! Some take years to convince. But when they do, their reaction is the same afterwards … “sana nag leap na kaagad ako nung una mo akong ininvite.” Although i’m tempted to say “I told you”, i don’t. Everything happens at the right time.

    I have shared this post to another enrollee, a TV broadcaster. I’m sure this post will quicken the process of whether to take the next Leap or not.

    Thank you so much, Toni! You inspire me.

      Thank you Concon! You inspire me too!

      I wish I knew about FLEX when I was in my 20s. I’m certain the impact would have been incredibly awesome. 😀 But I do believe timing is everything and that FLEX came to me in my mid-30s as a present for helping reignite me. It’s been a wonderful journey so far. Can’t wait to get started with LEAP this July.

      Thank you for sharing this post with another enrollee! Let’s spread the trilogy love!
