Workshop Details

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. These leaders draw from an entirely different power base: Shakti. Shakti leadership comes from accessing and operating from a deeper and more resourceful internal state of presence.

Take a deep-dive into yourself through awareness practices, meaningful rituals, and honest dialogue, guided by consciousness facilitator Nilima Bhat. Through one-on-one interaction with cofounder of Conscious Capitalism Raj Sisodia, work with your real-life challenges and discover how, as a conscious leader of a conscious business, you can outperform the market, manifold. This program is for entrepreneurs and corporate leaders who are as interested in business success as in becoming agents of change for the greater good. You may also be at life’s crossroads, looking to uncover your personal myth in order to reenergize and commit yourself to a fresh, purposeful leadership journey.
