“One does not discover new lands without consenting
to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.”
— André Paul Guillaume Gide
André Paul Guillaume Gide (November 1869 - February 1951): French Author and recipient of the Nobel Prize In Literature (1947) "for his comprehensive and artistically significant writings, in which human problems and conditions have been presented with a fearless love of truth and keen psychological insight".

BV believes that change is inevitable. 

We can approach it with intention, from the inside out, or allow it to "happen to us" through external drivers.

When we approach it with an openness to "possibility," significant shifts occur. 

On the Horizon...


There are times in life, maybe today, when you simply cannot see your destination. Times when you navigate by gut and heart, seeking inspiration and direction.
 
What if this is a part of the journey? What if it is even a necessary part of the journey?
 
What if, instead of feeling guilt, embarrassment, shame, incompetence, frustration or impatience you embraced this time? What if you consented, with intention, to fully experience what is being offered?
 
Change is hard. It challenges us. It demands of us. It calls upon us to be present, even as we want to run and hide. As leaders, we experience the same fears and failings as those we lead. What makes us leaders is our ability to keep our eyes on the horizon, harness the resources required to navigate our course, and with intention, consent that this will take time.
