'Leading Beyond the Ego' Book Review
See Annabel Beerel's excellent review of "Leading Beyond The Ego" in the Integral Leadership Review magazine. "The book provides a comprehensive plan that charts the transition from being a rational, ego-based, as usual leader (starting point), to the intermediate stage, where one becomes a robust, emotionally aware leader. The advanced journey is one that integrates all three intelligences – rational, emotional and spiritual and leads to one becoming a radical, ethical and authentic leader. Spiritual intelligence is incorporated in the Leading Beyond the Ego model as conscience and self-determination culminating in two questions: Who am I and What do I do with who I am?"
