Harness the Current

Access Continuum’s Leadership Model for leading through novel unknowns

Continuum Consulting Services LLC

Ongoing uncertainty seems to be the theme of the year, and this US Election week is no exception. The whole world is watching to see the results and what our choice will be. It is clear that no matter which candidate prevails, a large group of people will be very disappointed and angry. There is much we must do to better understand our neighbors who may think very differently than we do by beginning to communicate, ask questions, listen to understand and start building bridges to unite our country again.

At Continuum, we believe that the best place to begin the conversation is to “Choose Love” as our starting point for every interaction, conversation and decision we make. We are proud to sponsor the Let’s Choose Love social movement. The Manifesto below outlines the invitation and the foundation of the movement. Please join us!


MANIFESTO

I envision a world where love rules, where people can boldly cross the lines that divide us and come together to build a new world and a new way of being that works for all. 

We turn on the news and the barrage of stories overwhelms—pandemic, climate change, war, political posturing, unemployment, escalating divides, fake news—and the list goes on. The challenges appear so insurmountable that it is easy to feel like there is nothing you can do to change the course.

I believe it is possible. 

If we choose to break through our fear and come together to put forth new visions, new paradigms and new solutions that are inspired by love and fuel passionate action, we can make the difference. 

It is not easy to shake off the fear that grips and have the courage to discover our own voice, gift and unique role we each can play in bringing forth more peace, joy and love. The journey begins with yourself, your family, your community and then radiates out. 

Everyone has a place and a role to fill. This is an invitation for you to figure out yours.

Let’s Choose Love is committed to:

  • Inclusivity – Everyone is welcome. It does not matter your religion, political affiliation, economic status, age, race, geography, sexual orientation, gender identity or any of the other belief systems that divide us. All that matters is that with every decision, every action, we commit to choose love as our guide.
  • Individuality – We each have a path, purpose and role to fill in this work. It begins with having the courage to break through societal norms and expectations, go deep within yourself to heal and be able to listen to your own wisdom and guidance, and to act on what you discover. 
  • Interconnectedness – Separateness is an illusion. We are all one and everything we do has an impact. It is important that we become more conscious of how our actions and decisions as individuals and as a country have consequences globally. We are committed to better understanding and acting on this truth. 
  • Community – Not one of us has the answer. If anyone says they have the absolute truth, run. In community, we will inspire and learn and work together to reimagine and build the future, one person and one step at a time. 

Cultivating peace, joy, appreciation, passion and love in the world is our goal.
