Leadership in Times of Crises
Listen now
A conversation conducted by Rotary Club of New York with Bill Mehleisen/Leadership in times of crises Bill is a director at Mandalah where he works on regenerative business design, Owner of Seek Human, LLC where he runs his independent leadership advisory and coaching practice, and Lead Facilitator / Leadership Coach for Arcadia Consulting an organization performance consultancy. He is also an angel investor and mentor in the Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator in New York. In each of his roles, Bill is exploring how to help businesses, leaders, and teams evolve their thinking and practices to be a transformational force for good. His philosophy comes from an eclectic mix of mentors, theory, and practices which he summarizes in the following way: We are going through a big shift: from a mechanistic, hyper-individualism mindset to a regenerative, ecosystem mindset. Business is a tremendous tool to build better futures and can support this shift. However, mechanistic thinking is often seen in business discounts externalities and can severely limit our potential. There are better ways of doing business. To instigate this shift we explore some key areas: • Purpose: How do you operate from the Soul of your person / your organization? • People: How are you developing people so they are better after working with you / your organization? • Ecosystem: How are you cultivating generative relationships and creating more value than you capture? • Stewardship: How will you contribute to the health of the system and leave your little piece better than you found it? Bill lives in Brooklyn, NY but loves spending time in the mountains around Park City, Utah. He enjoys the power of art, music, and play to instigate creativity and transformation.
