Leadership Coaching Centered on Your State Of Consciousness

In this episode of OutBüro Voices featuring LGBTQ professionals, entrepreneurs, and community leaders from around the world, host Dennis Velco chats with Kevin Huntting, a Leadership Coaching Centered on Your State Of Consciousness.

Kevin has had a long career in the large Fortune 500 corporate world in areas of eCommerce, digital marketing, social media management for brands like Banana Republic, GAP, and GE. He enjoyed the challenges and what they taught him about himself. The biggest change was when he met his spouse who is a career Mexican Diplomat. Due to his husband’s government role that requires him to be resigned to new international or US locations to serve his country every 3-4 years, this caused Kevin to assess himself and reconsider his career.

If you are a professional or entrepreneur in either capacity and would like to up your leadership skills, make sure you watch/listen. Along the way, we’d love for you to drop a comment. What did you learn? What was new or interesting to you? What are your goals and what’s blocking you?

We discussed how relocating can allow you to reinvent yourself leaving the past behind. If coupled with a self-assessment and an intention to grow and change it can have a profound positive impact on your life. Also, how so many people fear the change, leaving a comfort zone (even if negative) and unknown and further we discuss how to deal with that. step into the possibilities, and make it a reality.

Kevin’s leadership coaching modality is founded on core energy or energy leadership. The idea is that every one of us is operating from a place of 7 core levels of consciousness in any given situation, context, or interaction in our day-to-day lives. Kevin assists his clients in understanding where they are showing up energetically or consciously speaking. He works with leaders to help them build that awareness and emotional intelligence that allows them to tap into higher levels of consciousness which results in more effective leadership, overall satisfaction, and productivity.

It sounds a little metaphysical, but level one is a victim mentality. If someone is operating in this level with their thoughts, emotions, and actions life is happening to them, not for them. Energy attracts like energy. Kevin helps his client’s break the mold or lens to see the potential of raising their consciousness and provide a wide range of tools to see what is holding them back, see what you maybe cannot see from an outside objective perspective, and make positive change in a short period of time – usually just 3 months.

Kevin’s ideal clients are change-makers, envelope pushers, innovators, social entrepreneurs, anyone who is looking to make a positive impact in the world, and maybe the employer they work for to increase their leadership and performance. He starts off with each client using the Energy Leadership Assessment Index which measures the client’s attitude to gauge where they are today. Taking the client’s stated desired goals, he creates a systematic plan and then works with the client over a typically 3 month period to achieve their desired change. He creates a gap analysis potentially covering attitude, skills, behaviors, characteristics to gain to reach their goals.

Kevin is an out gay entrepreneur, product manager with an engineering background, immigrant, filmmaker, startup founder of Jaago, and so much more.

I listed many things that Kevin identifies as, an illustration of intersectionality. Kevin and I discuss what is intersectionality, the buzzword that has become quite popular in the realms of diversity and inclusion over the past few years. It is key to understanding yourself and others to build empathy. Empathy is the ability to deeply listen and understand another person’s point of view. When a person has empathy for themselves and others communication is greatly improved. Improving one’s empathy can have significant benefits in both personal and work relationships by increasing your emotional intelligence.

Jaago is a free to download and use smartphone app you can use to learn empathy for yourself and others in just 6 minutes a day. Jaago users create a profile that after answering some questions deduces the user’s intersectional profile and current empathy score. Jaago is committed to user privacy and vowed to never share user information with any entity outside of Jaago. Users then use the smartphone app to watch short videos that are no longer than 3-minutes each. It is recommended to watch 2 a day. Users are capped at 6 videos a day to not burn out and ensure optimal retention. Users answer a few short questions after each video that capture their understanding of the video and how they felt about it. Over time these answers are used to gauge the user’s empathy score where personal growth is is the goal.

Users may further participate by uploading short videos sharing their own personal stories for other Jaago users to view. Anyone may use the Jaago app.

Kevin shared that his early goal is to target corporations and businesses of all sizes to offer Jaago as an employee benefit. Kevin explained that empathy supports diversity and inclusion which is a key focus for most businesses.
