What is the Secret to Conscious Leadership and Self-Mastery? Self-love is a topic that many of us seek to avoid--yet it is one which has a profound impact on our happiness, effectiveness and spiritual growth as human beings. What is less well known, is how self-love influences leadership ability. Based on her award-winning published MBA research and drawing on her professional experience in the fields of coaching, business strategy and yoga and meditation, Nerisha Maharaj describes how self-love impacts our ability to lead both ourselves and others successfully--sharing direct inspiring insights from her interviews with leaders and leadership experts. Her MBA research entitled The Power of Self-Love in the Evolution of Leadership was published in a prestigious European peer-reviewed academic management journal, winning a publication award. In the book, she discusses:
• The meaning of self-love in its highest expression;
• How self-love does not equate to narcissism and selfishness;
• The impact of self-love on leadership attributes such as authencity and decision-making;
• The Five Constructs of Self-Love; and
• Practical coaching techniques on cultivating healthy levels of self-love.


This book highlights, for both established and emerging leaders, the critical role which self-love plays in our overall well-being, values-based leadership and ultimate productivity. Leadership encompasses not just corporate executives, but academics, parents, teachers, coaches, community leaders, political leaders, spiritual leaders, and just about anybody who chooses to lead both themselves and others to greater levels of growth and purpose.
