Whether or not we occupy formal positions of leadership, we all have opportunities to lead, serve and contribute to shaping a better future. Our capacity to lead successfully in our hyper-connected world stems from our ability to deeply engage with those around us in ways that foster authenticity, compassion and solidarity. We want to align and integrate our inner world of mind and spirit with the outer world of action and service. Leadership consultant and coach Diane Millis introduces precepts from an array of wisdom traditions for deepening our engagement with our true selves, one another and the communities in which we live and work. This accessible, inspirational resource is aimed at leaders of all kinds and all levels of spiritual involvement—people of faith, people of no faith, spiritual but not religious—as well as anyone who seeks spiritual nourishment yet is starved for time. Leaders will learn how to listen through the noise that fills our lives in order to tap into what they most value; identify where they find passion, meaning, purpose and joy; and invite others to do the same. Deepening Engagement is designed as a toolkit for community building as well as a resource for personal growth and small group enrichment. Each brief chapter introduces a guiding principle to ponder individually in meditation and collectively in conversation.
