“Transformation is a shift in vibrational frequency or pattern…

Our biggest assignment in this life is to pay attention, so that we constantly are expanding our awareness…

The future belongs to those who can listen to it, follow it, to where it’s asking us to go, to recognize that there is something that is wanting to happen…

The intuitive mind is the larger mind, the intellect is just a small part of that large intuitive mind…” – Alan Seale

Alan Seale is an award-winning author, inspirational speaker, transformation catalyst, master teacher and mentor to many leaders and coaches, and the founder of the Center for Transformational Presence.

In this episode Alan shares with us few tools for conscious and transformational leadership, but most importantly, he teaches us how to pay attention to how we show up to life, and how that impacts everything we do.
