Becoming a Conscious Leader, Panacea Books

There is no higher calling

than to be a truly conscious leader

“There is no higher calling than to be a truly conscious leader, one who is motivated by service to people and the organization’s purpose, and not by ego, power or self-enrichment. In this highly engaging and very readable book, Gina Hayden has synthesized the wisdom of many conscious leaders. This book is an important contribution in helping us understand what conscious leadership is and how we can cultivate the qualities that are essential to it.”
Raj Sisodia, Professor of Global Business, Co-founder of Conscious Capitalism Inc., author of Firms of Endearment and co-author of Conscious Capitalism – Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business

This book makes a compelling case that we especially need more conscious leaders who can help organizations and communities become highly purpose-driven.

“A well-researched and truly excellent book that describes what it means to be a conscious leader.”
Richard Barrett, founder and chairman of Barrett Values Centre and author of The Values Driven Organisation and The New Leadership Paradigm
“Gina has written a practical, well-researched and integrated book on how conscious leaders think, act and lead. The challenges of being a leader in today’s world require us to be responsible, authentic and conscious of our own reactions and the impact we – and our organizations – have on others. This is a guidebook for any leader who wants to know how to lead with spiritual intelligence and make a positive and powerful impact in our world.”
Cindy Wigglesworth, Author of SQ21: The Twenty-One Skills of Spiritual Intelligence and President, Deep Change, Inc.
“In Becoming a Conscious Leader, Gina Hayden has robustly and beautifully described what conscious leadership looks like in action, as well as the winding journey of maturity toward it. Her work deftly weaves together insights and findings from adult psychology, neuroscience, Eastern wisdom traditions, embodiment theory and the latest in leadership studies. The result is an enlightening suite of principles and practices that will work in the unforgiving trenches of complex organizational leadership. Our responsibility and opportunity now is to embody these teachings, do the practice, and use them to help bring about an unprecedented flourishing of Humanity, Nature, and the Kosmos.”
Barrett C. Brown, PhD, author of The Future of Leadership for Conscious Capitalism
“There is so much wisdom and practical knowledge in this book and it is a must read for those leaders who are ready to learn how to be a conscious leader. Gina has created a comprehensive guidebook that pulls together many aspects of what defines conscious leadership. No doubt this book will greatly influence organizational cultures around the world and I will be recommending it to my clients.”

By answering this higher calling, leaders can generate greater energy, commitment and creativity. An enthralling read.”
Michael Chavez, CEO, Duke Corporate Education
“Gina Hayden has gleaned so much practical wisdom from such a broad and deep set of different viewpoints and experiences, synthesizing it into tangible models and inspirational insights for personal growth and introspection that leads to the ‘awake awareness’ action so needed now. I am honored to be included and grateful this work is soon to be in the world. This is a handbook for leadership like no other I have ever seen.”
Sally Ann Ranney, Environmental Leader, Conservationist and International Speaker
“As my realisation has emerged that so many things are simply not working in the world, I found myself with a sense of outrage… that outrage was quickly followed by a feeling of impotence. What was I going to do to help make a difference? This book helps to provide an answer. The world needs a new kind of leadership and Gina tackles this subject with grace and practical ideas. The book inspired me and made me realise that we can make a difference.”
Lorna Davis, Chief Manifesto Catalyst, Danone
“This book comes at a great time when businesses are under increasing pressure to justify themselves to the public, and leaders (and those they lead) are looking for more meaning in their work lives. It will help such leaders to see that a new type of thinking and leading is possible.”
Paul Cleal, Partner, PwC

Right on time with what’s happening in the world, it will be your best friend as you transform into the leader you are meant to be so that you can take your organization where it has never been. Gina reminds us that we are in this together and she grounds us in what’s important – connectedness. An inspiring read!”
Abigail Stason, author of Beyond Ego: A Framework for Mindful Leadership and Conscious Human Evolution
“What I love about this book is how grounded it is. And how rooted in her own real-life stories and those of highly successful leaders. And how clearly thought through, lucidly written and complete. And ultimately, how thoroughly Gina nails the reality that being a conscious leader is 180 very practical degrees away from airy-fairy.”
Jon Freeman, author of Reinventing Capitalism: How we broke money and how we fix it, from inside and out, and The Science of Possibility.
“This timely book hits the spot! Brimming with insights at every turn, Gina Hayden provides us with a tractable guide through contemporary research, insightful case studies and her own hard won experience.

Gina’s exploration of conscious leadership is both an inspiration and a practical guide for those seeking a path to a new way of leading for positive impact on our world today and for the future.”
Kathryn Kernick, Regional Director & Leadership Coach, Center for Creative Leadership
“Becoming a Conscious Leader is the most comprehensive assessment of what it is going to take for leaders in the business world to understand what is needed to expedite the evolution of the world of commerce.”
Laura Roberts, CEO, Pantheon Enterprises
“At a time when seemingly everything is being democratized, transformed or disrupted, then it’s essential that the way we ‘do’ leadership should also undergo a radical re-think based on deep reflection of our ways of ‘being’ and ‘seeing.’ Gina Hayden leads us gently on a journey of discovery into the rich, subtle but demanding terrain of conscious leadership by skillfully weaving the experiences and perspectives of 20 contemporary leaders into a robust, coherent framework that also integrates currently available research and practice. It’s one of those rare, highly readable, jargon-free business books that will be read from cover to cover, becoming a well-thumbed source of inspiration and guidance for any individual intent on becoming a more effective, personally-fulfilled and inspiring leader.”
Anna Pollock, Founder, Conscious Travel
“Gina Hayden’s book is a must-read for people who want to lead and conduct business in a more inspiring and purpose-driven way. I have seen over and over that the success of executives stopped growing where they have stopped growing. This book will help you grow so that you can lead in a way that our changing world demands.”
Peter Matthies, CEO, Conscious Business Institute
“It’s about time somebody in the world had the immensely strong determination to share these stories and insights. This book is not only vitally practical, but a work of art. It threads together many layers of what the business psyche has not yet been made aware of. Gina’s courageous questioning has gathered honest responses that are enormously useful to business leaders today.”
Jennifer Wilson, The Global Centre for Conscious Leadership
“An amazing compilation of facts, economics, real case studies and thoughts from today’s conscious leaders all in one place. Gina takes you on a personal quest to reveal what is a truly conscious business and a truly conscious leader and how you get there. A must read. You will be left inspired.”
Prabhmeet Singh, management consultant and author in culture change and leadership
