What’s in it for you?
This is a way for you to contribute to people internationally and nationally who find our website and are interested in learning to lead consciously. We have been fascinated with the reach of our website and the potential impact it could have. People from over a dozen counties and from all over the United States have visited our website.
If you so choose, your profile will include your contact information or a link to your website.
- Keep it short and easy to read
- Plan for no more than 1000 words, preferably less. If you go over, divide it into sections so that it may be posted as a series.
- Use short sentences and short paragraphs. Most word processing programs have a “readability index”. Check it out to see how your submission is evaluated.
- Use active tense vs. passive tense. (“She threw the ball” vs. “the ball was thrown by her”)
- Keep it relevant
- Make your entry relevant to Leading Consciously. The best way to ensure this is to refer to concepts in Reframing Change. You may reference a specific chapter in the book or concepts listed on this website.
- Be yourself.
- Speak from your heart, not just your mind. If you are writing an article, tell a story to help readers experience what you are saying.
- Please use your real identity and email address so we can email you for further information. Although you must register using your real contact information, we strongly encourage that you NOT use names in your article or story. Instead, identify other people with a pseudonym or initials.

If you are creating a scenario or writing an original article:

What to Expect
- Your post will be read in several venues — this website, Facebook, Linked-in, and Bestthinking.com. What a wonderful way to contribute to increasing others’ ability to Lead Consciously!
- Especially if you are a new author, expect us to ask you to make changes in your first (or second or third) draft. Be prepared to stick with us through this process.
- Once your entry has been accepted, we will ask for a short bio to include at the bottom of your post. This should be no more than two sentences. Refer to other posts on the website for examples.
