Overview

Stephen Covey taught us the habits of effective leaders. Eckhart Tolle exposed us to the land of awakening. Now, with Awakened Leadership, author Alan E. Shelton integrates these two worlds and sheds light on the hope of a life of leadership that encourages authentic living for the greatest impact.

In leadership and spiritual literature there are few, if any, books that illustrate how those with feet in both worlds can navigate. Awakened Leadership gives leaders not only a set of pointers, but also an authentic story of the author’s own journey through the awakening process.

In today’s global culture, we are experiencing dis- content of unknown proportions. Stories of anger, greed, and failure abound. Information, now handily in digital form, rushes at us in suffocating waves. If ever we needed access to the deepest truths, it is now. But how do we move from being effective leaders to being awakened leaders?

In leadership literature to date, the story of a fully awakened being operating full steam in the corporate landscape has never been explored. Awakened Leadership unfolds the possibility that you can:

-Understand that a life of awakened leadership is beyond self-mastery, the belief that we author and control our own reality.
-Walk away realizing that to be the most effective leader, you must be more of who you already are.
-Recognize and experience that your leadership essence can effortlessly manifest itself not only in the board- room, but in all facets of life.

What People Are Saying

Marci Shimoff
Don't think for one second that this is just another leadership book. Alan Shelton has broken new ground with Awakened Leadership. Alan leads us by his own example - sharing his journey so we can better understand our own, and helping us experience the authentic, love-filled, awakened life we all yearn for.-Marci Shimoff, NY Times bestselling author, Happy for No Reason and Love for No Reason
Marshall Goldsmith
If, as Alan Shelton, asserts, awakening is akin to enlightenment, then every business person (and even those not in the corporate arena) should read this book. Awakened Leadership represents a bright new day in an otherwise dark world.- Marshall Goldsmith - million-selling author of the New York Times bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There
Paula Butterfield
Awakened Leadership is unlike any other book you ve likely read on leadership. Trekking through his own life experiences as both a business leader and spiritual seeker, Alan invites us to explore our own deep restlessness, the beliefs that are driving it, and the transforming power of presence and service to move us through and beyond it. --Dr. Paula Butterfield, author of In Our Right Mind: the Transforming Power of Women in Healthcare
Swami Veet Brahm
[Shelton] writes with a rare combination of lighthearted personal transparency, sharp insight, and humor. The skillfully etched stories of his life provide example after example of how, believing in an illusory self-mastery, we all tend to seek fulfillment through ego-driven activities only to be frustrated again and again. For our era of radical, discontinuous change and opportunity, he offers a set of pointers to help disengage the ego mechanism that blocks the experience of awakening. Then, he says, we can be lived into our authentic leadership, not only in the business world but in any domain of life. [...] I highly recommend the book to any one of you who knows that your spiritual path is the door to an awakened life wherever you are planted. --Swami Veet Brahm (Osho Viha Information Center)
