The only gateway to the transcendence of powerlessness is acceptance – not agreement

Read this beautiful excerpt from Petra Kuenkel’s book, Mind and Heart: Mapping Your Personal Journey Toward Leadership for Sustainability. She reminds us eloquently that change offers an opportunity to integrate more deeply, more humbly within ourselves and the world, and to find our way as more effective leaders, wherever we might lead.

The Future of Leadership is Collective

Experiences of powerlessness are gateways to deeper perceptions of reality. The most disconcerting experiences sometimes help us to access a deeper sense of life in all its possibilities. When the boundaries of our constructed identity are shaken, and we find a way of integrating the disturbing experience, we transform. We also become more human.
