The Zen Leader

10 ways to go from barely managing to leading fearlessly

As physicist Max Planck observed, “Change how you look at things and the things you look at change.” The Zen Leader takes you on a journey of ‘flips” that change how you look at everything, especially yourself. Your ability to make a positive difference, which is what we mean by leadership, will expand at every turn.

What would you make possible…

…if you could lead with greater wisdom and less fear, attracting the future, rather than driving you or your people to exhaustion? This book is your guide to using pressure to propel profound “flips” in consciousness that change everything.
