Now is the Time!

For the past 4 years, I have written entries in the blog Heart of a Leader. These have primarily been focused on the inside issues of leading – how we can be more in touch with our true nature and how we can live and work more authentically.

I recently realized that it’s important to expand my perspective about leading. For one thing,  everyone who lives on the planet is a leader, whether they realize it or not. A leader is someone who guides others to find their way. We are all doing this and to limit the leadership conversation to those of a particular level of responsibility in formal organizations is absurd and dangerous.

Now that I’ve got that off my chest, I want to let you know that I am casting a wider net, so to speak, for this blog. I am coming off a year or so of sitting on the sidelines wondering what was next for me. I am relieved to report I am now clear.

This clarity is part of the renewal in this blog and its new imperative. I will be writing five times a week. It helps me to write more often and I feel that I have something useful for others that warrant this level of attention.

I will be writing about both the inner aspects of leadership as I have in the past and the external aspects of leadership, which I for the most part have avoided. Why is the external important? What is going on in the world is in direct correlation to what’s going on inside us.

For instance the debate about contraception support in medical insurance plans is actually about equality for workers of both genders. Many people talk about their full support of women as full partners in the workplace and then oppose this type of insurance equality. It’s important to bring the issue of inner and outer imbalance to folks attention so that we all can get into integrity.

I welcome your feedback and suggestions.

Until later,


Author: Thomas White

Over the past thirty-five years, Thomas White has created and led private and public organizations that initiated breakthroughs in areas as diverse as computer software, publishing, printing, market research, leadership development and organizational change. The common ingredients in his success are simple. He looked beyond the limitations that others believed and found real solutions to needs that business leaders have. He attracted the best talent to translate these innovative solutions into practical products and services that were of high value to customers. He created cultures where people love what they do, work at their best and produce extraordinary results. In addition to his role as a business leader, Thomas has been a pioneer and inventor of technologies in the computer-networking field. He is a patent holder for innovations in business process and workflow technology. As part of his passion for educating others about the interface of human and computer systems, he was the co-author of “New Tools for New Times, The Workflow Paradigm”. He has also written articles for numerous publications. In 2001, he turned his attention from leading companies to supporting leadership teams in creating organizations of excellence. After many years of being a part of the machine of change, Thomas recognized that business is the most powerful force in the world. It has a major impact on public policy and governments everywhere. It is a key influence on how we use our resources and sets an example of the values that shape communities from local to global. He formed the consulting firm of Profoundly Simple to be a guide for exemplary leaders - leaders who wisely uses the power they are entrusted with to serve their constituencies first and themselves second; leaders who know that it is good business to treat people with respect, honor the environment and act with impeccable integrity – leaders who inspire greatness in those around them and by doing so create great organizations that are notable examples of success. Feeling the itch to get back into the game again, Thomas joined with two long time friends, to start the C-Suite Network. This network of business leaders offers an online network, events, services, and insights to its 500,000 member community. In addition, the C-Suite Network produces and distributes television and radio content to an audience of over 5M per month
