The Five Dimensions of a Truly Successful Leader Not Business as Usual: Welcome to Fifth Dimensional Leadership
Play • 25 min

Are you ready to speak your truth and live in alignment with your highest potential? Welcome to Fifth Dimensional Leadership; a podcast that’s dedicated to personal and professional development. Whether you’re an accomplished executive or a leader in training, we invite you to listen, learn, and grow with us.

I’m your host, Ginny Clarke. I am a Senior Leader in a global fortune 20 tech company, an Executive Recruiter who has assessed and coached thousands of executives and other leaders, the author of a book called Career Mapping, and a mother. My aim is to bring a unique perspective not only to leadership but to the whole of who you are.

I created this podcast to provide a reminder of the agency you have over your life. It is my intention to push you to see yourself in ways that you have never prioritized or thought relevant to leadership before. The work we will do together will shift aspects of your professional and personal life so that you’re always operating from a place of greater knowing, confidence, compassion, and purpose.

We will be covering a variety of topics such as power, personal branding, self-awareness, networking, imposter syndrome, career management, and more. I will be integrating universal truths, best practices, the components of extraordinary leadership, and the behaviors and mindset of truly successful leaders.

I hope you join me for this very first episode of Fifth Dimensional Leadership and kick start this journey of nurturing and growing your inner leader!

“Lead from where you are with what you have. The time is now.” — Ginny Clarke

How long has it been since I’ve taken stock and reminded myself of all the power that I hold and the strength that I bring? Am I speaking my truth? How do I connect more to that inner-voice; my soul, so that it’s aligned with what’s going on in the world? How am I communicating with intention from that fifth-dimensional space where thoughts, feelings, words, and deeds operate as one? Can I articulate what the meaning of my work is? What is my soul’s desire? What can I do to extend grace to those most in need? What are some ways that I can expand my consciousness; my knowing and understanding of the universe in this current, isolated context? Have I considered taking the time to connect with colleagues or members of my team? Have I acknowledged and accepted that I am the captain of my ship? What are some things I can do to activate my mastery right now? Have you done the rigorous work in establishing the infrastructure to be successful during this challenging time? Do you have the tools to identify movement in the job market? Is your brand presence on point? Have you refreshed your resume and cleaned up your online profile on LinkedIn, Facebook, etc., so that they all tell the same professional story?

[22:49] I look forward to partnering with each and every one of you. Thank you for tuning in to the first episode of Fifth Dimensional Leadership!
