Luminary leadership, Elizabeth Hartke

Are you sure of your True North? A True North represents the values that keep you in alignment to how you consciously choose to show up in the world.

Leaders with a steady True North tend to be grounded in a holistic approach of guiding and decision making, also thought of as Luminary Leadership. Nurture every aspect of your life with a True North to take on a new level of alignment.

Your very own Sales Maven, Nikki Rausch, is here to offer tips, techniques, and strategies to master your sales conversations.

In today’s episode, Nikki and Elizabeth talk in-depth about what truly defines Luminary Leadership, alongside how to step into the alignment of leading every aspect of life.

Elizabeth chose the word “Luminary” to illustrate a grander understanding of embodying core leadership values. She sees leadership as “who do I need to be to carry out the actions”, not “what do I need to do”. A state of being is an active, real-time commitment beyond planning on what to do later.
