Over the past few weeks, I’ve given much thought toThe Leader of Change Movement. I want to convey its power, but words alone are not strong enough. So, I thought it best to introduce you to my inspiration. Those women who are true Leaders of Change. Those women who have made it their life’s work to empower others through their words – their actions – and their projects.
First, I’d like to introduce you to Dr. Anita Sanchez. Anita is a member of the Transformational Leadership Council with luminaries like Don Miguel Ruiz, Jack Canfield, Marianne Williamson, and John Gray. Co-author of The Strategic Matrix for Selecting Diversity Initiatives and Discovering Your Positive Core – A Personal Guide™. Best-selling author of Success University for Women, and co-author of Edges of Transformation: Women’s Voices, coming in 2016.
I first met Anita when I was training with Jack Canfield and she was assisting him. Her unending desire to be of service to the room and her incredible open heart is how she remains etched in my mind forever. A brilliant leader, trainer, speaker and coach, Anita’s work focuses on diversity, inclusion and engagement, developing leaders and organizations, transformational positive change, communication and applied neurophysiology/resilience. Her passion is bridging indigenous wisdom and the latest in science to inspire and equipwomen and men to live their higher purpose in service and joy.
Says Anita: “True gifts are to be shared and not squandered. Every moment creates a new opportunity for you to share your gifts. I’m passionate about connecting the hearts and minds of people around the world to build a better world through business.”
If you’d like to meet Anita, a true Leader of Change, she will be leading a group for the upcoming Pachamama Journey which begins June 11th. Join Anita and the Pachamama Alliance on a one-of-a-kind Journey to Earth’s most culturally and biodiverse region – the sacred headwaters of the Amazon rainforest and high Andes in Ecuador.
This week, I’d like to introduce you to Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, a true leader of change. Sharmeen is a brilliant film producer and journalist who has worked on 14 films for major networks in the United States and Britain. Her films include The girl in the River, Children of the Taliban, The Lost Generation and Afghanistan Unveiled.
Her work has taken her around the world, where she has filmed and worked with refugees, women’s advocacy groups and human rights defenders. By bringing their voices to the outside world, she has often helped them bring about a critical change in their community.
Additionally, Sharmeen helped found the Citizens Archive of Pakistan, a nonprofit, volunteer organization that fosters and promotes community-wide interest in the culture and history of Pakistan. Citizens Archive works with thousands of children, teaching critical thinking skills and instilling a sense of pride about their history and identity.
Says Sharmeen: “The news that comes out of Pakistan is always geared toward terrorism and fundamentalism. But when you give people freedom of expression and the freedom to go out and be social and to express themselves, you will see a change. I see that coming about in my country.”
