Stephen Covey taught us the habits of effective leaders. Eckhart Tolle exposed us to the land of awakening. Now, with Awakened Leadership, author Alan E. Shelton integrates these two worlds and sheds light on the hope of a life of leadership that encourages authentic living for the greatest impact.
In leadership and spiritual literature there are few, if any, books that illustrate how those with feet in both worlds can navigate. Awakened Leadership gives leaders not only a set of pointers, but also an authentic story of the author’s own journey through the awakening process.
In today’s global culture, we are experiencing dis- content of unknown proportions. Stories of anger, greed, and failure abound. Information, now handily in digital form, rushes at us in suffocating waves. If ever we needed access to the deepest truths, it is now. But how do we move from being effective leaders to being awakened leaders?
In leadership literature to date, the story of a fully awakened being operating full steam in the corporate landscape has never been explored. Awakened Leadership unfolds the possibility that you can:
-Understand that a life of awakened leadership is beyond self-mastery, the belief that we author and control our own reality.
-Walk away realizing that to be the most effective leader, you must be more of who you already are.
-Recognize and experience that your leadership essence can effortlessly manifest itself not only in the board- room, but in all facets of life.
