What you admire in others exists within you – it is a matter of bringing it out through self-awareness and conscious practice to build skills. Get inspired to begin your own Centered Leadership journey.
The Centered Leadership model will help you lead with impact, resilience, and fulfillment at work and in your life. There are five parts to Centered Leadership: Meaning, Framing, Connecting, Engaging, and Energizing.

The lesson guide for this first video is Chapter One of the Centered Leadership book. Read this chapter to learn how Joanna Barsh developed the Centered Leadership model—and how it’ll impact you.
Meaning, the focus of this lecture, is the anchor. It concentrates on strengths and purpose—drivers of long-lasting fulfillment. Watch the video and then work through the attached downloadable "Meaning" Lesson Guide resource.
Framing, the focus of this lecture, is one of the most exciting, because we learn to understand and accept our fears (reducing their power over us) and ultimately to shift the underlying mindsets and behaviors that have created those fears and our responses to them. Watch the video and then work through the attached downloadable "Framing" Lesson Guide resource.
Connecting, the focus of this lecture, teaches us to build trust and form relationships that enable us to have greater impact. Feeling connected is the key to sustained fulfillment. Watch the video and then work through the attached downloadable "Connecting" Lesson Guide resource.
Engaging, the focus of this lesson, emphasizes how you can overcome your fears, move into action, and take risks. Watch the video and then work through the attached downloadable "Engaging" Lesson Guide resource.
Energizing, the focus of this lesson, will help you manage work-life demands. The activities will help you identify what energizes and drains you and will offer strategies for finding time every day to focus on energy renewal and recovery. Watch the video and then work through the attached downloadable "Energizing" Lesson Guide resource.
After 30+ years at McKinsey & Company, I've become a director emerita, with a busy schedule of speaking engagements, consulting assignments, new research, and Centered Leadership workshops connected to the books, "How Remarkable Women Lead," and "Centered Leadership," published by Crown/Random House. I am writing a book based on my research on Millennials, to share the lessons of men and women who have accelerated their growth through, not despite of, challenges at work.
