In life, like in business, leadership is a space where each of us has a potential to reach and experience as it is the absolute state for self-realization in authenticity, integrity and expression. While we all spend our days managing in the best way we know, all the elements that life brings before us, we must move from this passive state of being to an active co-creative process. We can become the builders of our life and transform simple management into extraordinary leadership.
Although this is the journey of a lifetime through a lifetime of conscious practice, there are a few helpful tips that can guide you on your way from mindful management to soulful leadership.
