Shakti Leadership: Leverage Feminine and Masculine Power for Conscious Capitalism

Mar 18 - 23, 2018 Begins in 3 weeks
with Raj Sisodia & Nilima Bhat

Based on their acclaimed book, Shakti Leadership, Raj Sisodia and Nilima Bhat offer this week as an immersive and heroic journey into mastering the five elements of Presence, Power, Wholeness, Flexibility, and Congruence. The rapidly growing movement of Conscious Capitalism needs leaders who play win-win, “power-with” instead of win-lose, “power-over” games. They are whole, in that they have integrated their healthy masculine and feminine capacities. They are congruent — aligned to their highest purpose; and flexible — adaptive to their context.
