About this book

This book approaches leadership as a matter of contribution and responsibility rather than as a position or a title—thus making it more accessible to all emergent leaders. It presents strategies for finding fulfillment in serving organizations and communities and focuses on cultivating and practicing conscious leadership independent of the strictures of formal authority. The author provides a clear road-map for developing proven leadership dispositions such as integrity, humility, selfless service, compassion, personal mastery, and integrity. Leaders and scholars should read this book to learn that at real influence or power comes from empowering others, not from a title or position of authority.
