The Conscious Leader: Nine Principles and Practices to Create a Wide-Awake and Productive Workplace
Why do things go wrong in companies that shouldn’t? The answer, according to Dr. Shelley Reciniello, often lies deep beneath the surface in the unconscious processes of leaders and their employees.
Working as a sort of psychological detective, her job has been to consult with organizations and individuals to figure out what the real problem is when a poised for success corporate initiative fails, when a promising individual or team can’t perform, or when a well-conceived departmental project doesn’t deliver. When what has gone wrong doesn’t make sense, she looks for the unrecognized, underlying psychological issues that caused the problem. What’s going on unconsciously, out of awareness, is often more important than what is happening on the surface.
How can you wake-up and become conscious of secret motivations, unrecognized Achilles heels, and hidden agendas in yourself and your employees?
The Conscious Leader describes the nine most fundamental but often neglected truths about human beings and their workplace behavior in jargon-free, accessible concepts and examples. With humor and inspiration, Dr. Reciniello provides you with the principles and practices necessary for conscious leadership which you can immediately apply in your organizations.
The excerpt from chapter 6 specifically addresses the issue of diversity in the workplace. With a globalized economy, comes the need for the capacity to relate to people who are from different worlds, who look and act in ways that are different from you. If you and your workforce can’t match those differences with openness and curiosity and respect, your competitors will. And the best way to achieve that edge is to make sure that you have a workforce that understands, through its own experience, how to communicate and relate and negotiate across difference.
