Modern-day business presents a whole new set of challenges: to be more transparent, more connected, and more innovative in harnessing human potential to find answers to complex and unencountered problems. As companies we’re expected to be sustainable, responsible and stakeholder-centric.
What does it mean to be a leader in a world that is waking up to the possibility of doing business differently? What can we learn from leaders who have already made the leap to leading their businesses more consciously?
Conscious leaders have particular ways of thinking, acting and engaging that are well-suited to the almost quantum leap that the new business reality demands of us. It is no longer enough for us to simply sprinkle more content on top of our existing leadership mindsets and expect to flourish in our leadership roles. Just as we can’t run new software on an old operating system and expect a great performance, what’s needed in leadership is an upgrade of our operating system itself. This upgrade is conscious leadership.
Tapping into examples from a wide range of conscious leaders, drawn from all over the world, this book explores what it means to be a conscious leader operating both wisely and successfully in a conventional business world that is slowly waking up.
With the help of their stories, we get to map a new definition of success. We get to recognise similar qualities in ourselves, and bring these to life. This book aims to inspire many more such leaders, and to connect them around the world because, in running their organisations differently, they can positively impact everyone associated with them and, collectively, can have an uplifting effect on our future.
