Being! Five ways of leading authentically in an iConnected world is rooted in leadership practice across many sectors and its raison d'etre is to build adaptiveness and resilience in uncertain times. It is credentialed by leaders who have honed their personal effectiveness, grown spiritually and become more effective and impactful, because of their engagement with its content.
It channels wisdom at the intersection of many disciplines and multiple world views to provide deeper insight and meaning to the leadership dilemmas and choices that you constantly face. It integrates both western leadership-thinking with its more evidence-based, cognitive approaches, and eastern philosophy with its more 'mystical' and spiritually-oriented homilies, into a rich tapestry that engages your attention, challenges your capabilities, and leaves you richer and more fulfilled for the effort.
