How conscious are you of the unseen power that drives results?
Just like master scientists use principles of physics to transform energy into extraordinary displays of power, alchemical leaders use metaphysical principles to transform resources into results that exceed norms and expectations.
Grounded squarely in data, and anchored deeply in universal wisdom, The Alchemy of Power reveals:
- what power is
- what it means to have it
- how to develop and manage it
- how to navigate the global call for leaders to use their power to create a better world by developing better workplaces.
The Alchemy of Power is rich with information and inspiration that connects studies on leadership, with emergent global trends, and with ageless metaphysical teachings–and ties it all to what’s on leaders’ minds and desktops right now.
Written by a seasoned leadership and cultural consultant who has trekked the globe exploring world philosophies and spiritual practices, The Alchemy of Power is about increasing your capacity for causing results that amount to much more than the sum of parts–leadership alchemy.
