Whether you are leading a large corporation, an academic or government organization, a not for profit agency, or a small entrepreneurial business, becoming a more conscious leader could be a high priority for you and your leadership team. At Future Shapers Florida, we are coaching leaders, consulting with organizations, delivering workshops, and hosting executive peer group roundtables with a focus on conscious leadership.
We work in partnership with the Future Shapers organization (www.futureshapers.com) where co-founders Tom Eddington and John Renesch have a vision of shaping the future of the world in a way that leaders in organizations of all kinds lead and develop our global society toward a human presence on Earth that is environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just. We are all focused on bringing more conscious leadership into the world.
The Inner Journey to Conscious Leadership is a new book that describes ten practices for leading consciously. In this book, the three themes of Noticing What is Going On, Setting Intention, and Acting Responsibly form the basis of a radical new way of leading in the world. Three practices have been included for each theme. Listening with all the senses, learning relentlessly, and living mindfully are the three practices for noticing what is going on. Exploring purposefully, thinking possibility, and committing to action are the three practices for setting intention. Speaking candidly, acting with integrity, and taking responsible action are the three practices for acting responsibly. Each of these practices may be considered separately, but combining all the practices, and practicing all the practices all the time, represents the tenth practice. Character and presence, authenticity, mindfulness, are all aspects of conscious leadership. Conscious leaders deliver better business results.
The author draws on his coaching, consulting, and leadership experience along with his academic studies and the writings of experts in the emerging fields of conscious leadership and conscious business to illustrate the real-life application of conscious leadership practices. The specific practices and behaviors identified in this book are essential for anyone aspiring to be a conscious leader.
