Conscious leaders are creative innovators who can function from strategic awareness and a benevolent mindset. They function in the moment, where they can change anything as needed to accomplish and create more.
Being present in your life in every moment means being in a highly aware state, in which you have no capacity to judge. Everything is included (including judgment) and nothing is judged (not even judgment). It's a state of being that comes from within.
Whether you’re the CEO of your company or a team leader at work, school, or in your family or community, you can choose to become a conscious leader and have an impact. Everyone has the capacity to lead with conscious awareness, since leadership is not about titles or management roles.
Many people seem to think that conscious leaders are somehow different than they are. This is not true. I’ve been working with many conscious leaders from all over the world, and I can confirm that they are no different than you.
Conscious leadership isn’t about being special or extraordinary or haughty and supercilious. It’s not about lofty or self-important concepts. In truth, it is about something much more pragmatic.
The key message is simple: Conscious leaders have the ability to transcend their limited circumstances and to actualize infinite possibilities. They could and would be able to do anything. They have the capacity to get beyond the limitations of this contextual reality.
Conscious leaders have the ability to move beyond logic and analysis and tap into their awareness to make choices that are bold and innovative. They creatively address issues and have a major impact on the expansiveness of their organization and the people affected by the organization.
What I can tell you is that their choice has set the foundation for who they are as a conscious leader. It’s how their leverage their knowledge and their experience, how they act in the present, and how they choose to function that has made them who they are.
What do ‘Conscious Leadership’ qualities look like?
Conscious leadership is a process of “Being” rather than “Doing”. Being a conscious leader is not something you do, but rather a state of being that comes from within.
By being a conscious leader, you become the catalyst for a different possibility in the world. It is something you choose to be. To embody and be a conscious leader requires many diverse qualities.
- Conscious leaders live their life and lead their business from infinite choice and infinite possibility. If you function from infinite possibility and look at what is actually possible, you can open the door to greater possibilities.
- Conscious leaders are present with what is and aware of what can and can't be. They are aware of everything and being the infinite choice. They are truly aware of what is happening around them and they consciously choose what to do and what not to do.
- Conscious leaders relate to life in spontaneous interaction with the energy of the moment. They function in the present moment rather than operate from a fixed idea or concept of how things are supposed to be.
- Conscious leaders function from being the greatness that they are, from the infinite possibilities that can exist. They never give up their awareness in order to buy the rightness of this reality. The most amazing leaders are those who dare to be the greatness that they truly can be.
- Conscious leaders are ones who choose. They choose what would create greater awareness. They choose to do anything, to experience anything, to have anything, to create anything and to generate anything.
- Conscious leaders honor who and what they are. They don't live their life by other people's points of view and standards. They are willing to recognize what is true for them and to be that, whether anybody else goes for it or not.
Conscious leadership is the key to creating a balanced integration of organizational vision, strategy, operational realities, and a culture of consciousness. They are sources of substantial transformation for their organizations.
Conscious leaders seek to become aware of the boundaries that define conventional practices, predictable routines, conformist behaviors, and business-as-usual approaches—and then deliberately step beyond them.
They have the ability to see beyond the contextual system and determine what they would like to generate. This is not about eradicating contextual reality or getting outside it. It is about rising above it. It is about generating business in the realm of infinite possibility.
