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.

What enables some talented people to rise to the top and live their full ambitions at work and in life, while others stop short? In 2007, Joanna Barsh led a team at McKinsey & Company to answer that very question. In the process, they uncovered what distinguishes leaders who are successful from those who achieve true greatness, developing an approach called Centered Leadership. They drew on research from across the academic fields of leadership, organization behavior, neuroscience, evolutionary psychology and positive psychology. In addition, Barsh interviewed over 160 leaders from many fields – including business, government and the arts – and from many countries. With quantitative research, the team learned that these leaders have mastered practices to find their balance in the midst of chaos and lead from their most resourceful selves, unleashing the potential of others. In 2009, Johanne Lavoie joined to lead development of programs that help executives build these capabilities. Their research and development work continues as more and more leaders experience Centered Leadership. In the business bestseller, How Remarkable Women Lead, Barsh described Centered Leadership’s five capabilities and the research that underpins it. Here, with colleague Johanne Lavoie, Barsh provides a practical, actionable field guide for implementation. In Centered Leadership, Barsh and Lavoie will guide you through the Centered Leadership program. You’ll find the interactive tools, exercises, and practices that have helped the men and women participants in Centered Leadership programs gain the skills, courage and confidence to lead. And, along the way, you’ll read inspiring stories of remarkable men and women leaders who demonstrate the power of these skills in action. Those early in their careers will learn how to use these skills to explore their passions and accelerate their professional development. Those forming families will be able to use them to reconcile manage work and life to get the most out of both. And those who have already achieved success will be able use these practices to reach their next leadership horizon. No matter what stage you are currently at in your career, or what level of leadership you aspire to, this book will equip you with the tools to unlock your own Centered Leader and achieve more positive impact at work and outside it.
