Conscious leadership is a journey, not a destination - and it starts with the simple framework of practices found in this book.
Paul Ward 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.
Conscious leaders, he explains, want to make the world a better place to live and work. They constantly ask themselves three questions:
What am I noticing?
What are my intentions about what I am noticing?
What responsible actions can I take in response to what I am noticing?
The themes of noticing what is going on, setting intention, and acting responsibly provide a framework for learning about the practices for leading consciously. Using all the conscious leadership practices provides a process of transformation on your inner journey to becoming a more conscious leader.
This book is for leaders - and even if you don’t consider yourself to be a leader, you can apply the practices to living and leading consciously. The practices are simple, but they are not easy: It will take dedication, a leap of faith, and daily practice to navigate The Inner Journey to Conscious Leadership.
