Raise Your Consciousness

Conscious leaders take full responsibility for their world, including being the source of their prosperity and being the resolution for what is needed.  They are curious.  They are emotionally intelligent.  They commit to living a life of integrity, expressing themselves with radical candor, and ending gossip in their organizations. 

Play in your ZONE of GENIUS

Conscious leaders are grateful for everything even when people, circumstances, and events appear to be challenging.  They create a life of play, experimentation, and improvisation.  They look after themselves by getting plenty of rest, good nutrition, and exercise.  They know that there will always be sufficient resources (especially time and money) to achieve what they're up to in the world.
