This book explores what makes Barack Obama a superior leader. It defines 'intrapreneur' in terms of his phenomenal grassroots organization and the positive impact of the nonphysical human energies of mind, emotion and spirit on organizational results.

Barack Obama understands that while the negativity of smear and fear has its initial impact, what really moves most of us is a desire to feel good about and to be in control of our circumstances, our futures, our communities, and most importantly, ourselves. He understands the difference between inspiration and motivation. Understanding this difference is what moves ordinary people from complacency to positive action. Positive action, originating in positive energy is what yields positive results.

In the future, Obama will be studied as one of the greatest leaders of modern times. Obama doesn't call forth volunteers– he calls forth the leader that resides in all of us. He demands personal accountability—and gets it. He has created an army of grassroots volunteers that is not only contributing financial resources but hours of service in any number of tasks. He has tapped into the spirit of first-time voters and re-kindled the spirits of baby boomers, long searching for a return of the days of JFK, MLK and Bobby.

This book details how Barack Obama has succeeded in establishing a culture of ingenuity, enthusiasm, passion and collaboration– unlocking new levels of personal power and control. Leaders such as Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King know the secret to unleashing the human potential. These leaders understand that the power of the human spirit is the fuel on which we will ride into the third millennium.

This book is more than a book on human energy leadership principles, however. It is a compilation of the voices of America with contributions by leadership experts, authors and citizens from all corners of the globe. For more info visit www.ebookobama.com and www.galileoconsultants.com

  3. 3. For the first time many Americans are hearing– and speaking– hope. For many, hope means change. Obama has mobilized a grassroots movement that spans all ages and generations. And from this hope comes passion– a passion to do more, to have more, to BE more. It is this passion that drives any organization. It is this passion that drives any individual. It is this passion that drives America. This is the catalyst of both the entrepreneurial and the intrapreneurial1 spirit.This is the hallmark of ourthe entrepreneurial and the intrapreneurial1 spirit.This is the hallmark of our success as a nation. Intrapreneur: An individual who works as an entrepreneur within an organization, group or team.The qualities of an intrapreneur include passion, commitment, resourcefulness, creativity and initiative. Intrapreneurs are risk-takers who see problems as opportunities and assume direct responsibility for tasks and outcomes. For a more detailed examination of this phenomenon, read “Creating the Intrapreneur:The Search for Leadership Excellence” also by Victoria DePaul Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  4. 4. Barack Obama is a leader of intrapreneurs. He has challenged us to BE and FEEL our intrapreneurial spirit. Intrapreneurship is natural to most people. At birth, we came packaged with the innate characteristics of curiosity, ambition, flexibility, creativity and tenacity– all necessary components of Intrapreneurship. We were born with passion, commitment, confidence and initiative. It is this combination ofpassion, commitment, confidence and initiative. It is this combination of positive human energies that directed us to take our first step. Now, far from birth, in the intrapreneurial spirit, Barack Obama calls each of us to reach deep into ourSelves and call forth our innate positive energies of enthusiasm, ambition, hope and desire.

Leadership experts will offer their perspectives on how Barack Obama and Joe Biden serve as sterling examples of some of the emerging leadership strategies of the 21st century. Some of the words will come from Obama himself; many from ordinary citizensSome of the words will come from Obama himself; many from ordinary citizens who have been moved from complacency to action. This book, this chronicle, indeed this story, is an historical event– not just the story of one individual but the collective voice of a nation. This is not a book of facts and numbers but an attempt to document a movement of empowerment, change and personal accountability, the true essence of leadership. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  6. 6. So just how did Barack Obama, a junior senator, become the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party? How did Barack Obama amass more than two million financial donors, raising over 300 million dollars, in just a few months? What is it that Barack Obama knows, that you as leader, manager or supervisor had better know? Simple. He understands the universal principles of how life works. HeSimple. He understands the universal principles of how life works. He understands the difference between inspiration and motivation. Inspiration awakens people. Motivation moves people. Barack Obama knows that personal empowerment (necessary for happiness) is the ultimate motivation of all our efforts and behaviors. Understanding this difference is what moves ordinary people from complacency to positive action. Positive action, originating in positive energy, is what yields positive results. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  7. 7. Are you aware that the negative energy in the workplace may be sabotaging your success, destroying the vital "intrapreneurial " spirit of the people you manage? Barack Obama understands this. He doesn’t call forth volunteers. He calls forth the leader the resides in all of us. He demands personal accountability—and gets it. In “OBAMA ~ The Leadership of “We Are One” , the dynamics of human quantum energy and human energy systems are defined. You will learn whyquantum energy and human energy systems are defined. You will learn why people rebel against a culture that shuts down their natural desire to experience themselves as creative spirits. Organizations that understand the concept of intrapreneurship can succeed in establishing a culture of ingenuity, unlocking new levels of power and control, and increasing their employees’ productivity. These are the organizations that will succeed in the new millennium. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  8. 8. Intrapreneurial Leadership creates an environment that results in the synergy of human energies. Intrapreneurial Leadership does not just happen by chance or the positive intent to do so. It is the result of the application of specific universal principles of human energies. Barack Obama knows this energy, this power, well. He understandsBarack Obama knows this energy, this power, well. He understands how these universal principles are at work, not only within him, but within others as well. Following are 10 Leadership Principles that will determine your success: Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  9. 9. 1. Understands the Energy of the Human Spirit – The Entrepreneurial/Intrapreneurial Spirit: Each of us is an energy system with a level of accountability, integrity, tenacity, honesty, and creativity. Our results in work, play, relationships, even our politics, is dependent upon the extent to which we infuse our spirit, our Selves, our passion– our Energy into all that we do. 2. Ingenuity and Innovation: The creative ability to come up with new and innovative ideas and cherish the opportunity to implement them. 3. Commitment: Once the vision is defined, resiliency is the necessary ingredient to stay focused on the end result.to stay focused on the end result. 4. Autonomy: The ability to take a lead on a project, working independently if necessary, and allowing others to do the same. 5. Relational/Communication Skills: Intrapreneurial Leaders have the ability to be effective two-way communicators of ideas, instructions and enthusiasm. People are the greatest asset of any organization, group, and team of any size. People are the source of power of the organization. Success depends on a leader’s ability to communicate the vision and move people to act toward achieving established goals. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  10. 10. 6. Situational Analysis: The ability to analyze and evaluate data independently in order to make effective and accurate decisions. From analysis comes the knowledge and confidence to devise and implement effective strategies to manage and locate available resources. 7. Empowerment: The Intrapreneurial Leader has the ability to instill the vision in all members of the organization. Managers prioritize; supervisors direct; Intrapreneurial Leaders will call forth the positive internal energies/passions to move the organization to the fulfillment of the vision. 8. Vision: A vision begins with objectives and a plan for accomplishing them with discipline, organization and prioritization.with discipline, organization and prioritization. 9. Can Embrace Diversity: People are the power of any organization. Positive results come from the willingness and ability to work together and support each other. 10. Risk: Is comfortable taking risks and accepts all possible outcomes understanding that falling down isn’t failure, but staying down is a show- stopper. Comfortable with risk, the Intrapreneurial Leader works to create an environment that is safe for others to take calculated risks based on analysis and sound judgment. All new thoughts, growth, and ideas can only originate within the context of risk. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  11. 11. Understands the Energy of the Human Spirit The Entrepreneurial/Intrapreneurial Spirit Each of us is an energy system with a level of accountability,Each of us is an energy system with a level of accountability, integrity, tenacity, honesty, and creativity. Our results in work, play, relationships, even our politics, is dependent upon the extent to which we infuse our spirit, our Selves, our passion– our Energy into all that we do. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  12. 12. Life is about Energy. Your results, your power, in life are dependent on how you use and control energy. As a leader, you must understand that your results are dependent upon your use and control of organizational energy. While energy exists in many different forms, your primary concernWhile energy exists in many different forms, your primary concern as a leader, is the energy of the individual, the nonphysical, human energy that exists within each of us, within the people that make up your teams.These are the energies that fuel our thoughts, passions, emotions, ideas, motivations, and self-esteem. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  13. 13. Understanding that the most important energies of all are the human life energies within the individual – mind, feelings, and your interactions with others – is critical to your power in life. These are the energies that most affect and control the individual, family, groups, and organizations. The human energies are the most powerful energies that exist. Power is the ability to produce the desired results in any area of life, and for any personability to produce the desired results in any area of life, and for any person or any group. As human energy is the most powerful of all energies, power in life depends on the ability to control human energies. Understanding this fundamental principle of human behavior and motivation is what allows the Intrapreneurial Leader to experience astounding personal and organizational results. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  14. 14. Everything powerful that exists is an energy system. An energy system is any structure, physical or human, that combines and concentrates energies to create the power to produce the desired objectives. All groups and organizations are human energy systems. You, others, your family, your teams, and your business are all energy systems. Your understanding of life and energy systems and your understanding and application of the principles of human energy will create the power necessary to achieve your desired goals. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  15. 15. Intrapreneurial Leadership begins here: understanding that positive results depend on the ability to understand the human energies of people within organizations. The results of any organization (human energy system) depend on whether people and teams are operating on positive or negative human energy. A human energy system can be a family, a neighborhood, a city, or a nation. The end results produced by any human energy system depend upon the collective energies of the people that make up the energy system. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  16. 16. Ingenuity and Innovation The creative ability to come up with new and innovative ideas and cherish the opportunity to implement them.cherish the opportunity to implement them. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  17. 17. Barack Obama, in a full embrace of Intrapreneurial Leadership, has initiated and demonstrates a powerful strategy of leadership for the third millennium. Barack Obama understands that all of the important experiences of life– intelligence, creativity, personal power, good relationships, joy, love and happiness, etc.– are your nonphysical, spiritualjoy, love and happiness, etc.– are your nonphysical, spiritual expression of Self. Your ability to lead, to direct change, begins with this experience of Self and your relationship and ability to understand and control these nonphysical energies. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  18. 18. The nonphysical, spiritual Self, includes three major areas of energies: Mental phenomena: Your level of cause and responsibility, ideas and intuition, intelligence and creativity, beliefs and values, knowledge and memories. Emotional energies: Includes all emotions and feelings, both positive and negative: joy, enthusiasm, like and dislike, interest, happiness, Emotional energies: Includes all emotions and feelings, both positive and negative: joy, enthusiasm, like and dislike, interest, happiness, anger, worry, fear, hate, resentment, guilt, sadness, grief, depression, etc. Motivations and behaviors: Includes your relationships with others; are always energies and include such factors as principles and integrity, communication and affinity, negotiations and agreements, and service and love. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  19. 19. Intrapreneurial Leaders know that the human energy system (mind, emotions and behavior) is a coherent system. It is not just a collection of unconnected, unrelated, accidental, or randomly-occurring energies. Understanding that the nonphysical energies that reside within us are the most powerful energies that exist, is the power that allows the ability to produce the desired result in any area of life, and for any person, group or country. Effective and powerful leadership is dependent on how wellcountry. Effective and powerful leadership is dependent on how well human energies are coordinated and focused on a single goal, objective or vision. Powerful leaders understand that the ultimate motivation of every person is to experience more and more positive energy, and less and less negative energy. This is the ultimate motivation of individuals, families, businesses, and countries. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  20. 20. Leaders such as Barack Obama, who are able to create a climate that allows people to experience their innate, natural expression of curiosity, creativity, empowerment and resourcefulness establish a population that is self-motivated. In turn, people raise their chronic levels of energy from primarily negative to a chronic state of positive energy andprimarily negative to a chronic state of positive energy and experience.The synergy of the system becomes greater than the whole, creating the positive results that individuals, organizations, and our country seek. Successful results are the end product of positively Energized participants. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  21. 21. Commitment The ability to take a lead on a project, working independently if necessary, and allowing others to do the same Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  22. 22. Barack Obama created one of the most successful grassroots organizations ever by tapping into the nonphysical energy system of mind, emotion, behavior, motivations, ideas and more. It is from this nonphysical energy system that ingenuity and innovation arise. We were born with the innate characteristics of joy, ambition, success, confidence, determination, and resilience. Barack Obama understands passion. He understands thatand resilience. Barack Obama understands passion. He understands that negative energy is what destroys an organization and positive energy is what grows the organization. The same principle applies to that organization that we call the United States of America. Leaders who understand this fundamental principle are armed with the knowledge that will allow them to devise methods to foster environments that lead to self- empowerment, a necessary counterpart to ingenuity. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  23. 23. Few people understand that they are the creators of their experience. The consequences of that ignorance are enormous for self, others and the organization. Understand that nobody has the power to control external events sufficiently to avoid negative events. For example, the president of the United States is supposedly the most powerful person on earth, and even the president cannot control all events, either at home or abroad.even the president cannot control all events, either at home or abroad. Because circumstances do not determine feelings or emotions, no amount of control or accumulation of material things or power will ever produce happiness. Intrapreneurial Leaders understand that they have sole responsibility for their human energies. Power in life begins with your ability to control your internal energies. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  24. 24. Barack Obama, also known as ‘Mr. Cool’, is well known for his even and solid temperament, regardless of the situation. His campaign, characterized by ‘No Drama Obama’, remained consistent in its adherence to sticking to the issues as opposed to negative character assassinations. Although it should be obvious that attacking the world with negative energy is not a workable strategy for happiness, people never seem to tire of it– as we all witnessed throughout the presidential campaign of 2008.it– as we all witnessed throughout the presidential campaign of 2008. People, as life entities, are either creative (positive energy) or destructive (negative energy). These are the forces that you must commit to in yourself and in your teams to make them more alive, more powerful, and more supportive of the intrapreneurial spirit. Intrapreneurial Leaders understand that they have sole responsibility for their human energies. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  25. 25. Autonomy The ability to take a lead on a project, working independently if necessary, and allowing others to do the same Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  26. 26. Every such group is an alignment of individual energies working toward common goals and purposes. Group or organizational energy systems synergize and concentrate energies of all kinds, human and physical, to create enough power to achieve things far beyond the power of lesser energy systems or the individual. Now consider Barack Obama’s grassroots campaign organization. Is it not the perfect example of the alignment of individual energies working toward common goals and purposes? Does it not use energies of all kinds– human, technological, and financial, for example? Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  27. 27. While some of these energies are of the physical universe (technology, money, tools, etc.), the most powerful of these are the nonphysical human energies such as commitment; decision- making; persistence; ability to plan, design, communication, analysis; and the human emotional energies. All of these energies work together to create the human energy system that is who we are. Thetogether to create the human energy system that is who we are. The individual then, is a subsystem of a larger, more complex human energy system. Any organization then, is the collective result of the individual human energy subsets. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  28. 28. Every thought, action and behavior, has as its intent a desire to create the internal experience of wisdom and power. This creates an experience of high self-esteem which naturally leads to happiness and satisfaction. How a person feels will determine whether they generate positive or negative energy. To eliminate negative energy, conflicts and problems, and increase the productivity of your organization, you mustproblems, and increase the productivity of your organization, you must understand how people feel…. and… you must be secure enough within your own energies to let them BE and fully express themselves as the creative spirits that they are.This is the hallmark of Barack Obama. He speaks to our inner Self; he speaks to our creative spirit. He calls forth the leader that resides within all of us. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  29. 29. Risk The Intrapreneurial Leader is comfortable taking risks and accepts all possible outcomes understanding that falling downaccepts all possible outcomes understanding that falling down isn’t failure, but staying down is a show-stopper. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  30. 30. Intrapreneurial leaders must be comfortable with risk. Leaders who understand human energy and how it works will act to create an environment and circumstances that are safe for others to take calculated risks based on analysis, sound judgment and talent. All new thoughts, growth, and ideas can only originate within the context of risk. Leaders must help everyone in the organization understand and acceptmust help everyone in the organization understand and accept ‘Responsibility for Experience”, that they are the initiators of their energies – positive and negative. Leaders can direct circumstances, but ultimately each individual is responsible for how they react to circumstances, and therefore responsible for their own experience. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  31. 31. Your control of your inner energies (emotions, and thoughts) is The only way you can ever achieve and maintain true happiness. And only you can do it; only you can take control of your emotions. Nor can you control the emotions or happiness of others. You are Cause; and so to is everyone in the organization. You are Cause of your experience which include your identities (your declaration of Self), your thoughts and your emotions. Many have lived their lives in ayour thoughts and your emotions. Many have lived their lives in a condition of victim to their human energies of thought and emotion. You begin to make the transition to Cause when you can accept responsibility for your emotions and internal energies. You are no longer the victim of events as you move toward acknowledging your creator ability. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  32. 32. Again, we can look to Barack Obama for an example of a leader operating in high personal power. During the primary election season, with each ‘failure’ he gathered his team to evaluate the results achieved, determine what could have been done better, and determine how these valuable lessons can be applied to future situations. There was no hand-wringing, finger-pointing or lamenting over past events but a structured analysis of the situation and development of proactive strategies for implementation. A tolerance for risk is a precursor to intrapreneurial, original, out-of-the box thinking. New ideas and new strategies to address new events and circumstances are the natural result of creativity that is allowed to thrive– and that can only exist within the context of risk. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  33. 33. Situational Analysis: The ability to analyze and evaluate data independently in order to make effective and accurate decisions. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  34. 34. Positive emotional energy is what grows organizations while negative emotional energy is what harms the organization. A person’s experience of positive energy is what motivates them to perform well and contribute their best. Negative energy motivates people to resistance, conflicts, and sabotage. The positive energy of enthusiasm, passion, interest, commitment, determination, initiative, and resourcefulness in your teams is the energy that grows human energy systems. The negative energies ofthe energy that grows human energy systems. The negative energies of anger, fear, resentment, hate, indifference, apathy, etc., do the most harm to organizations. So what causes and controls these internal, nonphysical energies? The answer lies in the Causal Sequence: Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  35. 35. The Causal Sequence works like this: Who I AM, My Energies (BE) determines ↓ What I FEEL (positive or negative emotion) which determines ↓ How I THINK (my positive/negative thoughts) then determines ↓ How I RELATE: How I communicate & treat others and ↓↓ How I ACT (DO), BEHAVE. My ACTIONS determine ↓ My Results = My HAVE in life. BE ‣ FEEL ‣ THINK ‣ RELATE/DO ‣ HAVE Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  36. 36. Leaders are always working to achieving goals and objectives. Doing so successfully depends on positive actions, habits and behaviors. Your positive actions include how you perform your work or business activities. It includes your driving ability, your ability to use a computer, your hobbies, and anything else you do in life. Our actions in life are either positive or negative. Positive actions that leaders can take include keeping your word, being on time, listening attentively, working with quality and diligence,being on time, listening attentively, working with quality and diligence, acting with response-ability and accountability. Negative actions include behaviors such as criticizing, arguing, blaming, laziness, ineffective communications, and complaining. As positive actions always originate in positive thoughts, your positive thoughts originate from your positive internal energies. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  37. 37. Intrapreneurial leaders, such as Obama, know that the only reason Anyone takes anything personally is because of their own diminished sense of Self. Here is a secret: Nothing other people do or say is ever about you. Nothing. Even when others attack with anger and venom; they are acting at the effect of their negative energy, projecting their negative Self on you (to try to escape them) and venting theirnegative Self on you (to try to escape them) and venting their own negative energy. External events never cause your experience. Nothing that anybody ever says or how they treat you has any effect on you unless you give it that power, unless you import it into your world and believe in it. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  38. 38. That is what we see in Barack Obama. In his elevated sense of Self. He does not import into his world the low self-esteem and emotional garbage of others. He does not need assurance of self-worth from outside sources and can remain impervious to the detractions of others. Barack Obama is at Cause in generating positive energy, and is able to hold his experience of Self in the face of all counter- opinions. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC A key component of Intrapreneurial Leadership includes the ability to vary actions and responses until you achieve the desired result, as opposed to repeating over and over an ingrained habit of behavioral rut.
  39. 39. Empowerment As leader, the ability to instill the vision in all members of the organization. Managers prioritize; supervisors direct; successful leaders will call forth the positive internal energies/passions to move the organization to the fulfillment of the vision.organization to the fulfillment of the vision. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  40. 40. Every one of us is the creator of our experience; we are at Cause for our emotions. We may or may not be responsible for the events and situations that we encounter, but we are always at Cause for how we respond. In any situation, you are either Cause (creator) or Effect (victim). Cause is the ability to produce the desired results; it is your ability to manifest and create what you want in life– your vision, and the vision of themanifest and create what you want in life– your vision, and the vision of the organization. Leaders who act at Cause, are those who take response-ability for their internal experience of Self. Response-ability, you will recall, is your ability to respond to any given situation. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  41. 41. As creator of your experience, you are no longer the victim of events as you move to Cause.The basic problem of negative energy in life, whether internally, within the family, or the nation is that most people think that they are Effect.They believe that external events cause their emotions. When operating in a condition of no power, no control, of being affected by some external cause or agent, individuals descend into a state of “victim”.some external cause or agent, individuals descend into a state of “victim”. Clearly we see in Barack Obama from his personal story, that he is not a victim of life’s circumstances or the expectations of others. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  42. 42. Leaders at the effect of circumstances will also find the standard behaviors of the victim mentality– instead of taking action, there will be complaints about the ‘bad’ things to anyone who will listen. Victims will assign cause to others for the ‘bad’ things in their own life.They will make others ‘bad’ and wrong for anything that they see as bad in their lives and in their results. The victim, often by his own actions, will often irritateand in their results. The victim, often by his own actions, will often irritate and provoke others, be that provocation deliberate or unconscious. Easily and constantly provoked, the victim is emotionally reactive, easily triggered and activated by others. The victim is an expert at pointing blame to circumstances and others for their own failed performance. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  43. 43. Intrapreneurial Leadership demands accountability. Response-ability, therefore, is the ability and the duty to respond for our actions, including the restoration of any damage that we cause. Accountability is justice; it is the equalization of energy, the restoration of energy loss due to failed actions and behaviors. Accountability has two sides. The first is the positive side: positive results are rewarded. The second side is the negative side: whoever producesresults are rewarded. The second side is the negative side: whoever produces negative results is response-able (at Cause) for restoring the energy lost or damaged. Without such accountability, without the restoration of energy, response-ability does not exist. The violation of this fundamental principle of accountability destroys any system, organization or government. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  44. 44. Relational/Communication Skills: An ability to be an effective two-way communicator of ideas, instructions and enthusiasm.and enthusiasm. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  45. 45. People are the greatest asset of any organization, group, or team of any size. People are the source of power of the organization. Success depends on a leader’s ability to communicate the vision and move people to act toward achieving established goals. Successful communications is also required for teams and individuals to collaborate smoothly. Getting people to work on your behalf depends on your ability to relate with people.people to work on your behalf depends on your ability to relate with people. The cooperation necessary to achieve positive results depends on positive energy. Success also depends on what is being communicated. People often have a tendency to absorb and adopt the paradigms in use by others around them. All socialization and acculturation is a mostly-unconscious process of learning the vision or perspective of those around you. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  46. 46. A common barrier to effective communication is the denial of response-ability. As everyone runs around blaming the other for being the source of the problem, they deny their participation in creating the problems and see themselves as the innocent victim. The common litany that accompanies this is: “I am not the Cause of the problems; I am not response-able; I am the innocent victim here; None of our problems are my fault; Someone else is at fault; Someone else is the bad guy.”are my fault; Someone else is at fault; Someone else is the bad guy.” When all sides deny response-ability there can be no change in the energy climate. Individuals, teams and organizations that operate in negative energy will experience a high degree of dysfunction in the form of conflict, anger, jealousy, mediocrity or rebellion.

  47. 47. Effective communicators work to improve relationships by showing a willingness to work together and support each other. In control of their emotions, intrapreneurial leaders such as Barack Obama, are calmer, more logical and enjoy more productive communications, resulting in more agreement. People working in positive energy will naturally seek tomore agreement. People working in positive energy will naturally seek to serve each other and the organization.

  48. 48. Able to Embrace Diversity: The Intrapreneurial Leader understands that diversity is not to be feared but to be celebrated. While our common purposes far outnumber our differences, it is through those differences that we can expand our consciousness and celebrate our common humanity. differences, it is through those differences that we can expand our consciousness and celebrate our common humanity.

  49. 49. We are a diverse nation. We are a diverse global community. And yet, the 2008 presidential election shows us that racial prejudice remains a critical issue throughout the United States as the question has been asked– is the United States ready for a black president? Prejudice is the attempt to escape the feeling of inferiority (negative energy) by projecting and others to the inferior position so that Self will assume the superiorothers to the inferior position so that Self will assume the superior position. Prejudice is ego projected to an entire group or class of persons. Polarization, a creation of the mind, is the division of anything into two groups, one of which is the in-crowd, the “good” guys, and The other is the out-crowd, the “bad” guys.

  50. 50. Prejudice and bigotry are just another of the many forms of projection, polarization, and ego. A person of lowered self-esteem, a negative energy state, will try to compensate for his decreased sense of Self by invalidating, polarizing and treating others with negative energy. Intolerance is based inpolarizing and treating others with negative energy. Intolerance is based in the delusional justification to invalidate another for inconsequential or uncontrollable characteristics. Organizations that embrace diversity are those that have successfully reduced the use of such negative energy by exposing ego as the effort to compensate feelings of inferiority.

  52. 52. Visions are mental images of something that you wish to create, manifest, or achieve. Organizations have visions, just as each member of the organization should as well. A business plan is a physical recording of a mental vision that is to be created. The archer must have a target, the artist starts with a sketch, and the architect begins with a blueprint. You create your life twice: first in your nonphysical, spiritual universe of Self, and then inyour life twice: first in your nonphysical, spiritual universe of Self, and then in the physical universe. The first is the vision, a vision of what you will create. Accidents, coincidences, and randomness do not exist in life. Despite appearances, nothing happens by accident. Organizations and people are creative. Just as you create everything in your experience, organizations create their experiences as well, positive and negative. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C. DePaul ~ Galileo Business & Learning Consultants, LLC
  53. 53. Your creative power in life comes from understanding the importance of your vision of what you wish to create.To manifest a vision all you have to do is energize it. Your attention, your energy, your personal or collective BE, whether it is positive or negative, creates and attracts. When you or the organization is in negative emotion, you are energizing and thereforeorganization is in negative emotion, you are energizing and therefore creating and attracting what you don’t want. This is how the creative process works. Organizations (human energy systems) in negative energy will experience increase levels of sabotage, resentment, rebellion, discontent, negative attitude, and frustration.

Yes, these leadership principles, based on individual and group human energy systems may appear to be new.The only thing that is new is our observation ofto be new.The only thing that is new is our observation of the phenomenal success that Barack Obama has shown by using these principles– perhaps even doing so intuitively.

  56. 56. Significant to the success of Obama’s leadership model, the most powerful action that he takes is a constant examination of Self. He readily acknowledges his imperfection without self-recrimination, but in an effort to learn and grow. By doing so, he increases his own personal power and creates the positive results that he seeks.This increase inpower and creates the positive results that he seeks.This increase in personal power is what fuels his own intrapreneurial spirit, moving him forward in both his professional and personal success. By inviting us to do the same, we also increase our personal experience of the positive human energies of wisdom, power, and passion. Copyright © 2009 by Victoria C.

Barack Obama recognizes that intrapreneurs are driven by the need for satisfaction, an opportunity to contribute to the vision, an opportunity to create and implement solutions, but most importantly, to be successful.
