Intentionality: Part I

Personal Growth

Thoughts from Brian Pearson, Executive Coach:

  • Intentionality is based on your core values
  • Being intentional includes understanding the process but also the relationships that go with the process
  • With intentionality you learn to respect the people, the assets, the customers.
  • Intentionality, over time, can be imbedded within a person
  • In this process, there is reciprocity. The one adding value gains value
  • Not everyone sees intentionality this way if instant results are the expectation.
  • Mentoring in leadership is an intentional partnership. It is not designed to be an adversarial relationship
