The Era of Connectedness with Mory Fontanez

Mory Fontanez forecasts a new era of business that will emphasis the importance of emotional intelligence and create seismic shifts in the behaviors leaders will have to embody in order to be successful. Mory is a Purpose Coach and the Founder and CEO of 822 Group. 

After a successful career in corporate America, a critical truth became clear to Mory – many companies operate without a true sense of purpose because their leaders do not understand their own higher purpose. Many hardened business executives still operate from a place of scarcity and fear rather than alignment with their higher calling. They have lost their connection with their own GPS. This non-alignment shows up in many ways in the day-to-day operations of companies and, they need a new system.

In this episode we discuss:

The shift from an old framework of power dynamics to one of connection, empathy, social good, and success.

Why leaders need to find their purpose again and allow mission-driven values to embed themselves into the company DNA

The value of investing in leadership

and why performance reviews should be reviewed and possibly even.. blown up.

The daughter of Iranian immigrants, Mory spent her childhood in New Mexico and Colorado before relocating to Maryland. She climbed the corporate ladder to become a Managing Director of Strategy at a global PR firm. As a woman of color in a white and male dominated corporate world, she leaned in to her differences, seeing them as her superpower rather than an obstacle. This instilled a strong sense of loyalty and respect from her co-workers and employees which greatly influences Mory’s coaching methodology to this day.

I absolutely agreed with Mory’s premise that employees and clients want more.. and that is what they deserve. I share in her excitement for what is to come.
