PRIMAL VIRTUE LEADERSHIP
MASTERING THE PRIMAL VIRTUE
Absolute power, corrupts absolutely."
- Lord Acton
"With great power comes great responsibility."
- Benjamin 'Uncle Ben' Parker
Virtually all schools of profound thought feature the timeless challenge of using your power and influence with good intention, in good faith and to a good and practical end. The Tao speaks of 'primal virtue' as your ability to lead with both strength and humility and most importantly possessing the wisdom and skill to bring forth the best efforts of everyone around you.
Mastering the Primal Virtue Takes
a Seriously Good Leader.
It requires a leader with the discipline of personal character, an authentic respect for the strengths and intrinsic motivations of others, and the savvy to navigate highly-charged relationships to create compelling coalitions of change.
Primal Strength. Virtuous Purpose.
THE PRIMAL VIRTUE LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP
Fostering credible, trustworthy, and consistently effective relationships with others, starts with developing an authentic and sustainable trust in our own decisions, actions, and abilities.
“Self-trust is the most important,
for it is the heart of courage”
Our most profound and impactful work is accomplished when we combine our strengths with the gifts of others. Learn how to create noble and sustainable outcomes that are exponentially greater than the sum total of individual contributions.
“If you want to go fast; go alone.
If you want to go far; go together.”
Learn to use the realpolitik skills of trust-building, persuasion and diplomacy, negotiation, shared visioning and win/win operational design to lead effectively in an environment of competing interests and diffuse authority.
“History will be kind to me.
For I intend to write it.”
- Sir Winston Churchill

Thought and practice leaders who exemplify the Primal Virtue.
THE VIRTUOUS CIRCLE
Primal Virtue Leadership hinges on two elemental forces. First, an undeniable passion to accomplish an intrinsically meaningful purpose; and secondly, the ability to engage others in finding common cause and unite their strengths to achieve this greater good.
Primal will get it done; however, it's Virtue (or purpose) that makes it worth doing. It starts with the 'why'.
