Leadership and the world

When we look at the world in all its complex beauty and challenge, two themes seem to us increasingly significant. People’s extraordinary potential when they have the courage to face the reality of their situations and relationships and the role of Leaders in unleashing that potential.

These concepts are core to inspirational Leadership. Deepening understanding of reality deepens appreciation of the mystery of the world. Deepening understanding gives insight into creativity and inspires full human potential. Inspiration calls people to be all that they can be, showing them that they are capable of much, much more than they may think.

We will need all our creative potential to overcome the extraordinary challenges we face as individuals and as societies coexisting on an increasingly fragile planet. We need inspirational leaders capable of evolving the models which power our economies for the good of everyone and for the good of everything.

In Dr Shanida Nataraja’s book “The Blissful Brain” there is interesting research into how meditation takes one to deep states of relaxation.
