To benefit from Nature, you must be in Harmony with it. Steve (Great Blue Heron) will open this path for you, and show you how to move forward – crawl; walk; run!
I take an Ecosystem Approach to living and operating, which entails:
Know and understand your immediate surroundings — social, economic, and environmental
Recognize your essential factors of life, work, and recreation
Consider factors that might be viewed as either competing with or contributing toward your satisfaction and fulfillment
Identify your niche… and exploit it
Five Essential Verbs: Believe, Look, See, Feel, and Act.
I find Nature’s Lessons because I know they lie hidden within view — belief enables me to look and see
Really look, with eyes open to your surroundings, external to electronic devices and the distractions of meaningless noise and data
Be alert to see deeply, beyond the superficial
See clearly, with comprehension, to find meaning and evoke feelings
Feel emphatically enough to spur action
Every lesson for Living, Learning, Serving, and Leading is written indelibly in or is powerfully inspired by Nature
Discerning Your Mighty Oak aspiration
Emphasize the Purpose; Find the Passion; Fuel The DREAM
Insistence on Action
Seek and Celebrate results
Nothing is more important than Inspiration and Humility
Steve (Great Blue Heron) assists individuals and organizations anchor themselves in personal integrity and professional ethics. Steve will help you understand and embrace environmental stewardship and selfless service if those two essential values are not already front and center for you.
Responsible Earth Stewardship – you and your organization are citizens of Planet Earth. Steve works with clients who accept and embrace, or are willing to open eyes to this fundamental value.
Intelligent Tinkering – a value that is ecosystem based. We must recognize that all things are interconnected and interdependent; know the consequences and implications of all actions.
Doing Good by Doing Well – a value that recognizes our obligation to the greater good now and into the deep future. It involves performing well enough give back and pay forward. Great Blue Heron works only with individuals and organizations willing to accept such an obligation for doing good.
Sustainability – leaving a world that can provide a future undiminished from the one we occupy. This value recognizes that we have an obligation to future generations.
Steve helps clients understand the environmental and societal implications of life and living.
Steve espouses four levels of fitness essential to life and living, as well as recognizes five life-portals:
Four levels of fitness – Steve helps individuals and organizations recognize the critical nature of their own four-dimensional fitness, even as they understand that capacity, performance, fulfillment, and enjoyment correlate with health and well-being. Great Blue Heron will help you understand that maintaining fitness across all four fronts enhances your ability to perform and draw satisfaction and fulfillment:
Mental – acuity and sharpness
Physical – health and vitality
Emotional – friends, families, colleagues
Spiritual – embrace of a presence larger than self
Employing all five portals: mind, heart, body, soul, and spirit. A GBH client appreciates the need to operate and thrive along the wholeness of human experience, through mind, body, heart, soul, and spirit. I absorb and appreciate Nature via all five portals.
