The Mystery of Leadership and The Descent of Uniqueness
5 fundamental actives of leadership are proposed and a working definition establishes fruitful explorations into how and when we lead. Together we work towards dispelling the clouds of ambiguity around leadership while preserving leadership’s essential mystery.
Building from some of the past century's most important research we will peer into how leadership can change and evolve. As we explore the largely unknown contours of how human beings develop throughout the lifespan, we will approach the essential role of separateness, individualism and liberation in the survival of our species.
As a treat, we open up some of the most hidden findings about who we are as human beings, who we may become if we grow in more ethical ways and how we may be able to enact our greater capacities and skills. In the end, we not only talk sincerely about spiritual leadership but more importantly participated with enacted some of our unique expressions of how we can lead and be lead.

- Understand the big mistake of communion.
- Learn how to foster ethical evolution.
- Get rid of outdated assumptions that kill human potential.
