Decisions that define us – Jim Peal
The hero’s journey of today’s leader is not defined by external heroic acts but rather by a qualitative shift the decisions that person makes and the ensuing behaviors that happen along the journey. Jim explores in his TEDxKoeln Talk the transformational dynamics that occur for the leader of today through the lens of four distinct leadership qualities; the visionary (spirit) — who’s focus is the ultimate goal or destination, the activator (gut) — who creates the path to get there and initiates action, the coach (heart) — who focuses on the human element and supports performance, and the mentor (mind)– who takes on the development of the character of the leader.
Jim Peal, Ph.D. introduces a model of leadership that integrates the four dimensions of leadership qualities and their related shadows that resembles the Periodic Table of Elements. His current full time work is developing leaders and their teams as the founding director of the Leadership Development Group.
While his fascination with the intersection of mind, body and experience fueled his education including a degree from the Baylor Medical School as well as a psychology Ph.D. degree in NeuroSomatics Jim’s tenure has includes serving in faculty positions at two graduate schools of psychology including the Pacifica Graduate Institute, permanent home of Joseph Campbell’s personal library and archives.
