Intensives, expansives, And holidays!

Delighted to have sold all ten copies of You're Not Too Much that I brought to the conference last week. It's fabulous to have so much interest and such a warm welcome from my colleagues here on the Pacific coast! It's amazing what a boost it is to have people engage with the possibilities around antiracism work as well as organizational structure and leadership.

If you don't have a copy and want one, they're available at Amazon in print or kindle, or through your local bookseller in the Ingram catalog.

If people have ever told you you're too much, if you feel everything at super size, if you get really excited about things, if you dive in with both feet, no holds barred you're probably an intensive. And this book is for you.Written for intensives and the people around them, You&a...

Your "too much" is just right.

All over, my feeds are full of fallow time. #intensives, what are you doing to nourish your spirit, while you prepare to rest? Fertilizer will transform you even as you stay in place.

Are you an intensive? #datageeks check this out:
343 amazing humans who have taken my #assessment:
Nearly 250 are #intensives.
The remainder are almost evenly split between #expansives and fives (dead center). No one has had a score of 0 yet ( the most expansive possible). But I've had 17 10's.

Beloveds, I have two things available. There is no urgency except the natural urgency of time. However there is that. If you know an #intensive #leader or #entrepreneur who needs this, please send them here.
Thing the first: Monday afternoons, I have an opening for hourly coaching, weekly or biweekly.
What do I do with clients in an hour?
In one hour alone, less. But in one hour a week?
Everything. All the everythings you never dreamed, except the ones that really don't fit.... I find ways in which your money is connected to your heart and your habit of fumbling the most perfect pass is actually because you want to be gardening and not playing football. Then we figure out what to do about it. This is light metaphor, but it is also deep metaphor. And it absolutely has to do with how you lead people and companies. Book here: intensivescentral.com/scheduling
Thing the second: October 12 (or possibly a week or two later) I have an opening for an i4i at beta price. The person who had booked it had a last-minute conflict, and here we are.
Intensives for Intensives are an all day coaching immersion set in downtown Berkeley, where the air has something special in it. As mentioned elsewhere, the beta price has is now $750 to allow for the two nights of hotel that I now realize are necessary. Yes, the price includes two nights of hotel, and two meals and all day coaching with me. As with the hourly sessions, we do all the everythings, but we do them much faster, with excellent food and beautiful surroundings.
I would very much like to have you join me--I itch to help people, and I have seen how I do, and I want to do more of it. The world is hard enough without isolation and an overdose of do-it-yourself-ism, and I do this work for many reasons, not least to fund the doing of this work with people who need it and cannot pay me.

Click below to schedule an hourly session; message me to discuss the i4i. Many thanks!

Did you know? I finally got online scheduling. If you've been following me for a while and you're ready for an hour session you can just book one. A let's chat session is free and short--up to 45 minutes but usually closer to 15--if you have questions about having me speak at an event or becoming a client. A one hour consultation is a full coaching or consulting session, paid, done, and dusted. Check it out! http://intensivescentral.com/scheduling/

How do you know if your company or organization is #expansive?

Realistically, your first clue is to look at who struggles. If the people who struggle are intensives, that's an indication.

But then check: ...
Are decisions slow or fast?
Are creative and out of the box ideas welcomed or greeted with skepticism and even negativity? By everyone or by one person?
Are systems and rules flexible or rigid?
How fast does the company adapt to new information and circumstances, and how happy is it to do so? (Faster is less expansive)
Is the company driven by innovation or by consistency? (Consistency is more expansive)

And more importantly, if you're an intensive leader of expansives, what can you do about it?

Here's the thing: you're a #perfecti every time. When you #intensivego when you #intensivestop when you have inspiration, when you wait for it. Your #intensive nature has a place all the time, not just when your gifts are most needed. It's great to be able to manage a crisis or think so far outside of the box that it saves the day, but you're a #perfecti every time, all the time. #perfecti #perfectlyintensive

Dear ones, I have one beta Intensives for Intensives session left, in the month of September. In person, in Berkeley, all day. Is it yours?

#intensives: so Charlottesville happened. There are more rallies, more gatherings, more acts of hate and horror planned. But these situations are our bailiwick. These are some of the times that #intensiveness shines, when fast, decisive, bold, creative action is what is required; when high risk tolerance and a love for stirring the pot are some of the best ways to change what seems like the inevitable disintegration of society. These are also the times that are most often... CAUSED by intensives. Intensiveness is being used for evil on the other side of this conversation, where hatred and fear are driving the bus. We are uniquely positioned to think like the opposition here.

So how are you using your intensiveness to promote an inclusive and just society? This is the time to let your intensiveness drive you, once you're clear on where you're going. So get clear. And get going. What are you doing to fight for what you believe in?
