Unite Your Light was seeded in Adelaide, South Australia by myself (Elizabeth Ellames) back in October 2011. After my first year of facilitating the group as a social change community, it became clear to me I was actually facilitating a new style of leadership. So, I then invited the women to participate in a 10 month New Style Leadership program.
Unite Your Light | New Style Leadership For Women Program supported women to discover their talents, demonstrate their collaborative skills and confidently put their ideas and life experience into social change actions.
Its been my experience over many years that knowing your gifts or purpose is only the first step. But it’s in the interaction and connections within a community that one begins to see how their particular gifts are of real value in the world. I realized that it’s not enough to give people the information that aligns them with their purpose, but it is vitally important to provide an infrastructure that allows them to become cordial collaborators and the New Style Leaders we need in the world.
Unite Your Light | New Style Leadership For Women still offers a supportive and creative platform for women to shine together. It is a purpose-driven community where members compliment each other’s gifts.
Together we create a social and spiritual fabric that is made strong with the threads of Creativity, Compassion, Co-operation, Culture, Coherence, Conversation, Clarity, Commitment, Choice, Co-creation, Community, and Courage.
Its also become very clear to me that the nature of community and business is changing –
Unite Your Light | New Style Leadership For Women has been and still continues its commitment to growing a better humanity through social change.
I now believe that a community needs to be infused with ‘genuine’ connectivity between people, while business needs to demonstrate creative collaboration within a community. Combined they can become the new currency, which is “HOPE”.
A shift in what we truly value needs to occupy our minds and hearts, this is what will create a new humanity.
To achieve this it will require 3 simple but important factors.
LIFE + LOVE + LEGACY = HOPE
1. YOUR LIFE equates to your vehicle.
2. YOUR LOVE equates to your purpose.
3. YOUR LEGACY equates to your contribution.
