Entelechy Leadership with Dr. Heather Shea

Updated: May 18, 2023

Listen in as Dr. Heather Shea talks about Entelechy Leadership.

What is entelechy? Think of it as your energetic DNA, what excites you, drives you, and inspires you. It is what’s important to you in your life. Consult any dictionary and it says entelechy is to realize or make actual what was otherwise potential. Entelechy is a vital principle that guides the growth of living systems, which includes people, organizations, and cultures.

Why does entelechy matter? It is the full realization of your potential, which means:

· manifesting your purpose and your passion

· actualizing the landscape of your life

· returning to your innate blueprint for perspective and guidance

· rediscovering your core callings

· activating your true potentiality in your relationships and your life’s work

· embracing and expressing your creative force

Entelechy is you, energetically, living to your full potential: you are fun, excited, enthusiastic, expanding, adventurous.

Entelechy leadership involves co-creating the location, place, or landscape in which you and others thrive. Since entelechy makes you a more interesting, alive person: Other people want to follow you, be around you, work with you, because you activate their potential.

Think of the tiny acorn: given the right environment, it instinctively knows how to become a towering oak tree. Not given the right amount of water, nutritious soil, or enough sunlight, it will not grow to its full potential. People are the same.

What does it take to be an entelechy leader?

Entelechy leaders must have purpose, passion, and potential

  • Purpose: Do who you are

  • Passion: Rise and Thrive

  • Potential: Back to Your Future
