Describes a new approach to leadership development, “Inner Leadership”. Whilst there are many who can tell us the qualities required of a business leader, Inner Leadership provides a systematic method whereby these qualities can be realised. The way we think and act can become a habit, and acting from habit limits our response to the issues we face in our personal and business lives. Nevertheless, we retain the potentiality to think and act in ways which better suit the real needs of the situations we encounter. Inner Leadership helps us to bring our hidden qualities of leadership into reality and to apply them in our lives. Inner Leadership provides a practical process for: increasing self awareness; uncovering assumptions and beliefs which limit our effectiveness; becoming integrated, autonomous individuals acting from our values and purpose; using our awareness and inner will to realise our deepest resources and self‐leading potentiality.
