Conscious Capitalism® Fueled by Shakti Leadership
Corporate leaders and founder-entrepreneurs (including new start-ups) connect deeply with the mission and message of Conscious Capitalism®. But even as they envision a higher purpose, an inclusive culture and win-win stakeholder relations, they often struggle with the ‘how to’; many slip back into the old, default patterns and find their efforts distracted and diluted. Essentially, they are experiencing a crisis of leadership, and they long for a breakthrough. With the belief that Conscious Leadership is the key to unlocking the door to Conscious Capitalism®, co-authors Raj Sisodia and Nilima Bhat provide a fresh approach called Shakti Leadership (Berrett-Koehler, 2016) and new tools for leaders to apply on what is a Heroic Journey.
