Awakened Leadership

Awakened Leadership

Transformational leadership books and processes have delivered us to the era of self-mastery. But how do we move from being effective leaders to being awakened leaders? By situating leadership in the nest of the seeker’s journey toward truth, you can now stand on the shoulders of the visionaries who have come before, and become conscious of your own position within Source. Leaving behind charts, maps, and graphs, Awakened Leadership is a portal to direct experience via pointers and personal stories that will help you recognize the gift of being who you really are. Then your leadership essence will effortlessly manifest not only in the boardroom, but in all facets of your life.

Reviews

“If, as Alan Shelton asserts, awakening is akin to enlightenment, then every business person (and even those not in the corporate arena) should read this book. Awakened Leadership represents a bright new day in an otherwise dark world.”

—Marshall Goldsmith, million-selling author of the New York Times bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

“Don’t think for one second that this is just another leadership book. Alan Shelton has broken new ground with Awakened Leadership. Alan leads us by his own example – sharing his journey so we can better understand our own, and helping us experience the authentic, love-filled, awakened life we all yearn for.”

—Marci Shimoff, NY Times bestselling author, Happy for No Reason and Love for No Reason

“Awakened Leadership is unlike any other book you’ve likely read on leadership. Trekking through his own life experiences as both a business leader and spiritual seeker, Alan invites us to explore our own deep restlessness, the beliefs that are driving it, and the transforming power of presence and service to move us through and beyond it.”

—Dr. Paula Butterfield, author of In Our Right Mind: the Transforming Power of Women in Healthcare

“[Shelton] writes with a rare combination of lighthearted personal transparency, sharp insight, and humor. The skillfully etched stories of his life provide example after example of how, believing in an illusory self-mastery, we all tend to seek fulfillment through ego-driven activities only to be frustrated again and again. For our era of radical, discontinuous change and opportunity, he offers a set of pointers to help disengage the ego mechanism that blocks the experience of awakening. Then, he says, we can be lived into our authentic leadership, not only in the business world but in any domain of life. […] I highly recommend the book to any one of you who knows that your spiritual path is the door to an awakened life wherever you are planted.”

—Swami Veet Brahm (Osho Viha Information Center)
