Overview

What does it take to bring out the best in a business? Is it rigorous analysis of human resources? Fastidious number-crunching? According to acclaimed business leader Federico Renzo Grayeb, the first step to corporate success is actually a leader's own self-awareness. His new book, Leadership and Consciousness, reveals his surprising but proven holistic approach to business that focuses as much on the personal development of the leader as it does on more accepted corporate methodology.

In fact, Grayeb has already demonstrated the soundness of his provocative method. It has enabled him to effectively turn around businesses all over the world, and garner acclaim for their corporate health. Grayeb's revolutionary philosophy calls upon business leaders everywhere to integrate personal and professional growth into their work style. The author contends that elevating the level of consciousness of a new manager or experienced leader is the key to creating a corporate environment that will result in enhanced productivity. A self-aware leader will in turn focus on this facility in his or her team, who will then come together to best serve the community. Leadership and Consciousness elucidates this phenomenon as concentric circles that emanate outward to change paradigms and affect positive, profound change.

This approach will foster the level of sustained performance that can turn around a business, powered by adept individuals who share common goals and purposes that transcend financial objectives and bring meaning to both their jobs and their lives. A company's competitive edge is actually honed by a culture based on strong values that are shared by its members, where there is a significant integration of the way all team members think, feel, and act.

Through theory and anecdotal examples that synthesize psychology and business practices, Leadership and Consciousness presents a new challenge to current and aspiring business leaders. Leaders who seek to make a true impact on their corporate culture and their surroundings will find inspiration in this bold new business book, as well as proven effective inroads to better business. By streamlining profit and purpose, any leader can construct an environment that is highly functioning and deeply meaningful.

Grayeb, a business leader who has held management positions at major pharmaceutical companies, writes effortlessly and eloquently about the need for today's leaders to be fully aware and socially conscious.Consider this a leadership book with a lot of soul. In crisp, instructive text supported by pertinent examples from the workplace, Grayeb describes "an integrated leadership model" consisting of three "Rings of Conscious Leadership"—self-awareness, team-awareness and community-awareness. Grayeb proceeds to skillfully explain each, layering his strong, simple prose with a dose of insight borne of experience and his own introspection. About self-awareness, for example, he writes that leading with consciousness demands purpose, but it also "requires that we focus on what we have (the present) instead of being distracted by an illusion of something we cannot act on anymore (the past) or control (the future)." When it comes to leading a team, Grayeb advocates a "conscious culture" that "instills in [members] the will to lead themselves by finding their own purposes." As for community, the third ring, Grayeb sees a higher purpose for business than profit alone: "A conscious business is then made of people who are fully aware of the impact their actions have…who manage to consciously balance business with social impact." In closing, Grayeb suggests that a leader's change must come from within: "Let's make our mark, starting with ourselves, then with our work colleagues, then with the companies we work in, and then with the communities we interact with." This is heady stuff written at a higher level and with a greater good in mind. As such, it is well beyond the typical how-to-lead boundary of most similar books. In about 100 pages, the author delves deeply into the broader meaning of leadership, intertwining business and personal development in a timely discussion that will resonate with thoughtful leaders.Well-reasoned, articulate and succinct, with a refreshing morality and a true sense of the value of self-worth.
