Men and women urgently need a leadership model that works for today’s world. The prevailing leadership paradigm, arising from its militaristic origins, over-emphasizes masculine values such as confidence, competition and decisiveness, and focuses primarily on an outside-in, competency-based approach.

When men and women learn to become whole, by integrating their masculine and feminine nature, they come into their true power and presence, and can embody leadership maturity as well learning agility. This unleashes their formidable creativity and innate entrepreneurialism to raise themselves, their teams and the organization to the next, desired level. Furthermore, their awakened ownership of issues can go on to help harmoniously resolve the conflicts and crises they face outside the organization on many fronts: economic, social, political and environmental.

Developing Shakti-based leadership is a transformative “Hero’s” or “Heroine’s journey”; to their unique wholeness and purpose. This journey of self-discovery and to “having-it-all’, though experienced as deeply personal, is completely universal and little known.
