Greetings from Lodestone’s CEO, Captain Ron Johnson, Retired
At Lodestone, our Mission is to inspire leaders to use a moral compass of empathy, compassion and selflessness to discover personal and sustainable strength in leading others confidently, whether no one is watching or the whole world is watching.
We believe every leader needs to make an honest assessment of who they are and how those they lead perceive them as effective and worthy of the title, LEADER.
We believe LEADERSHIP is a skill that can always be enhanced. However, the success of each leader depends on his or her willingness to use their leadership skills proficiently while maintaining a heightened level of sensitivity, empathy and compassion for all those they serve in an ever-changing world climate of differences.
We believe a leader’s ability to empathize is enhanced when they have taken the time to explore the differences around them. At Lodestone, we ensure our Worthy Leadership™ participants explore and then define the world climate of differences within their span of control. For many leaders, this climate exploration will occur within their place of employment, government institution, community center, household, neighborhood and/ or faith-based organization.
We know that change is among us due to many differences in our climate demographically, culturally, politically and social economically. These many differences today require confident, empathetic leaders who are intent on ensuring all parties represented have a chance to be heard when BIG decisions need to be made. This act of inclusiveness builds the sustainable leadership we believe all leaders need to become effective and worthy of the title, LEADER.
We believe Worthy Leadership™ requires strong leaders who are not afraid of healthy conflict and debate because the best decision and choice of action are led by facts, which can be guided overall by strong confident leaders who use a moral compass of empathy, compassion and selflessness.
At Lodestone we meet leaders where they are and help them maximize their potential as moral, confident leaders who make the right decisions and choices, no matter the challenge. Our multi-layered discovery process using skilled experts, challenges leaders to courageously unpack their assumptions no matter the situation or audience. We provide the guidance necessary to increase a leader’s ability and confidence to not only lead but also create a healthy climate for those who follow them.
