The road of the shaman
Rodolfo started with meditation since was a little kid. His mother showed him and kept him on this path since he was seven years old. Years later he went to study business and started his consulting business. Finally, eight years ago he started mixing both paths and this lead to what he is doing nowadays: Developing conscious leadership.
The book “BE-ing Leadership” is the result of those two paths Rodolfo has going through his entire life, recognizing how all those things that happen within us are going to influence those around us. We want to be able to acknowledge and deal with the whole complexity of being humans. It’s a roadmap to recognizing what is going on within us in order to put into practice the style of leadership needed for every situation.
Speakers Shine through Self-Awareness
When we do Public speaking we are actually doing leadership, because we are trying to influence the audience into taking action about something or an objective. So BE-ing a public speaker is about acknowledge and recognize how I’m showing up on stage. Because our thoughts, ideas and feelings are going to influence the way we show to our audiences. The more aware and conscious we are about it we can learn and find a way how to deal with it.
Communication skills for post-pandemic leaders
According to Rodolfo the most important skills that leaders need nowadays are three:
Self-awareness: I have to be able to understand what is going on within me and how I’m showing it up.
Vulnerability: Being able to acknowledge what’s going on and be open about it to adjust to it and use it on your benefit.
Convey a vision: Being able to create a vision to where you are going to take your audience. The clearer your vision is, the more they will want to follow you.

Routine to Shine
Rodolfo suggests a simple exercise to do in order to be aware of your breath and settle your mind. Do three conscious breathes. This can be done focusing the mind on your breathing. This brings your mind back to the present moment and get your awareness and yourself ready so you can fully show up to your audience.
