This review was first on Huffington Post

In his book, Awakened Leadership: Beyond Self-Mastery, Alan Shelton shares stories of his journey of transformation across decades and continents. His self-actualization to become an integrated awakened leader shines as an example of possibility to others. One of his gifts to leadership thinking is the new word: "intellectuality, the ability to be engaged in the shared intellect that permeates the heart. When practic

Its a gud read. The first few chapters i felt were personal stories of the author which were not very relevant and too personalised. However the last four chapters are profound and they contain the clarity and the depth of how awakened leadership works in a corporate context and also what is appreciable is the fact that ones personal awakening affects all aspects of life without separation. This has been clearly and rightly pointed out and explained.

A good mix of personal stories of the author's journey to Indian ashram's and his methods of bringing his spiritual learnings to the workplace.

A little light on how-to's, but then, as he says, much of these kind of learnings are experiential and cannot be shared in text-book style teachings.

Will be interesting to see the authors success in gaining widespread adoption of these topics in corporate America.
One of my favorite quotes is found on page 169 "Awakened leadership is the recognition that the only stable thread that weaves itself through your experience and that of the people you lead is the internal peace that you contribute to the fray." I like his stories and how they relate to his journey of awakening.

To be awake here on earth is 'key' to our true living! :)
The mind is like a machine, we as humans just need to choose to quiet it more often :)
Always be the best you can be and stand in your power :)
To read is to learn and connect to many wonderful teachers such as Shelton :)
