This book is Volume III of Robert's Success Factor ModelingTM series and is based on a methodology whose purpose is to identify key characteristics and capabilities shared by successful entrepreneurs, leaders, teams and ventures. It then applies these to define specific processes and skills that can be used by others to greatly increase their chances of increasing their impact and achieving success.
We live in a challenging and ever changing world. As the rate of change accelerates, it brings with it increasing instability, uncertainty and risk. Creating a successful and sustainable venture under such conditions requires a high degree of conscious leadership, innovation and resilience. Robust and durable leaders, teams and ventures are those that are "fit for the future"; i.e., able to ride the inevitable waves of change and to navigate the path of dangers and opportunities that comes with those waves.
By examining the mindset and actions of successful entrepreneurs and leaders --such as Elon Musk (SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity), Richard Branson (The Virgin Group), Jeff Bezos (Amazon.com), Anita Roddick (The Body Shop), Howard Schultz (Starbucks) and many others -- this book shows how to guide yourself and your team from a state of centered presence, accessing multiple intelligences and living your highest values in service to a larger purpose for the benefit of all stakeholders. You will learn how to empower, coach, share and stretch yourself and others in order to create a profitable and sustainable venture.
With the support of these skills and resources, you will become increasingly authentic, emotionally intelligent, purposeful and responsible, and create teams and ventures that are more productive, ecological, sustainable and fun.
Conscious Leadership and Resilience presents models, tools, exercises, illustrations and case examples - of successful leaders, entrepreneurs, teams and organizations - that will help you understand how to orchestrate innovation and strengthen your fitness for the future.
