Like previous guest Jesse Itzler, Cara Miller, MDiv, PhD, has spent time in monasteries. One particular time, she spent the bulk of her week shelling almonds. As encouragement, she was asked to reflect on a question: What is this task doing to you? Not why are you doing this task, but what it this task doing for you?
The answers to that question, Cara realized, are infinite – and the possibility for that reflection isn’t hidden away in a monastery! Considering who you are doing a task on behalf of and why you are doing what you are doing can – and should – be an everyday practice.
This kind of reflection is what you’ll find in Cara’s work, too, as a professor, executive developmental coach, and the Founder of Inquiry Partners.
Cara draws on developmental psychology to coach people in many contexts, uses adaptive leadership theory to consult diverse organizations engaging in change efforts, and is committed to practices that support the sustainability of this integrative work.
These commitments, disciplines, and liberating structures reflect Cara’s desire to continually teach and practice an embodied form of leadership that brings alignment to her own and others’ spiritual and psychological development. Her ultimate purpose across these roles is to grow as an ongoing reflection of the deep, glorious, complex source of love – and to invite others to do the same.
And as an added bonus, Cara will be back again for part two of this enlightening conversation next week!
