PODCAST: The Awakened Leader

Listen to "The Awakened Leader Podcast" on Spreaker.

The Awakened Leader is a monthly podcast about leadership wisdom in practice. Leadership is in crisis globally. How do we develop business leaders and entrepreneurs to be the engines of social change?

Climate change, corporate corruption and political posturing. Edelman Trust Barometer found that 76% believe CEO’s should lead change rather than waiting for government to impose it and 75% believe that their most trusted change partner is their employer. How do we develop business leaders and entrepreneurs to be the engines of social change?

A fish rots from the head. There is a direct link between leadership behaviour and culture. Universally toxic behaviours of greed, hatred and delusion are behind all corruption and the systems that support it. As Bertrand Russell said,

"Man knows how to fly in the air like a bird, he knows how to swim in the water like a fish but to live among other human beings, he does not know.”

Even though our very survival is in question, we are still looking at the leadership crisis superficially.

Transformative leadership comes from a high level of self-awareness and a centre of consciousness rooted in soul rather than ego. Business leaders and entrepreneurs can be engines of social innovation however they need to live the connection between self-development and outer impact. They need to awaken and become more conscious leaders.
