I had an exciting opportunity to hear Richard Olivier, the son of Lawrence Olivier the great British actor. Richard shared the lesson’s of leadership imbedded in the Shakespearian story of Henry V. Listening to Richard rekindled my passion for the power of archetypes and myth to reveal the path of purpose, of life, and of leadership. During my days in University I loved the work of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell and use some of their archetypal templates to this day in my 3 and 5 day retreats.
The morning proved exciting in more than one way. I was able to reconnect with a couple of people who had participated in programs that we offer through CSE in Melbourne, Australia.
Belinda Vertriest of Billanook College had an inspiring story to share. She was a year 7 coordinator when she took the 3 Day Women in Leadership program a year ago. She said that the program helped her find her voice and strengthened her confidence. So much so that when her boss announced her retirement, Belinda threw her hat in the ring, applied for the job, and got it!!Â She will be the head of the middle school at Billanook College next year. A BIG CONGRATS TO YOU, BELINDA!!
It’s been a great trip to Melbourne and now home to my final days of summer in Hawaii!
