The Hero's Journey

 

The Hero’s Journey is a compelling adventure into personal growth, leadership and human experiences. It’s deeply insightful because it can help you to be aware of who you are and can foreshadow the next steps in your life. It can support you to improve your leadership skills so that you become more authentic and effective.

Essentially, it illuminates the powerful story within you. It shifts and expands your reality. This can give you more clarity and focus to lead and succeed.

The framework has 12 universal stages of human development you’re going through in various life cycles. For example as a teenager, young adult, adult, entrepreneur, or manager. This awareness gives you fulfillment and value.

Therefore, the Hero’s Journey shows a clear pattern that can help you to be a conscious leader. You can better understand the dynamics in your own life so that you can be more present.

The Hero’s Journey is based on the life’s work of Joseph Campbell. He was a philosopher, university professor, storyteller and mythologist. In 1949 his magum opus The Hero with a Thousand Faces was published. 

The Journey is a dynamic model of the universal human experiences that originate back to the great stories from all around the world. Campbell is regarded as the expert on comparative mythology, human experience and existence.

I was trained in The Double Healix, which taps into the deep wisdom of the Hero’s Journey. I further infused Campbell’s work with practices to be present, success principles, management themes, and my life’s experiences.

I love working with clients and organizations helping them grow and being successful.
