"This is an important book for all leaders" Jason Cotta Managing Director Costa Coffee UK&IGreat leadership is not something we can avoid any more... We all secretly know what great leadership should look like and feel like, because we have all have been followers... we all internally know what it takes to follow... we know what we need from a leader to be our most engaged and productive.Yet the unfortunate truth is these are not yet common or consistent elements of leadership in our companies. Most people in leadership roles are so absorbed and concerned about their status and security in a company they forget about their real job. We forget about our real job.The real job of a leader is not about being "in charge" it is about taking care of those who follow us. This is something that is overlooked and this is something we consistently fail to train our leaders for.This transition becomes more difficult when we use leadership strategies that are outdated and just simply wrong. The leadership strategies that most of us and our companies use today. Leadership, has become this web of complexity and pomposity. Our companies and ourselves, have been focused on leadership output. This therefore creates a subtle assumption in all of us, that leadership is something WE DO to other people. And because we think it is something we do to others, we are persistently trying to find a recipe for it. A recipe that is consistently added to and changed. Which has now forged into a never ending list of rules and regulations. There is no exact recipe... Leadership is not something you do to others... It is something others choose to follow.If we truly want to understand leadership, we have to understand why people choose to follow and when you ask "Why did you follow?" You get much closer to the truth of leadership.This book answers this question and opens up the opportunity for you to become a leader of the future. An enlightened leader.Written as a parable, the Enlightened Leader is a story about an aspiring leader "Jack" who gets the opportunity to be mentored by the world renowned Enlightened Leader.During their time together Jack discovers that leadership is the internal approach and strategies that will define the leader he will become.Using proven personal development tactics and then applying them to how he leads, Jack discovers that great leadership starts with self leadership.

FOREWORD In 1999, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the resolution to recognize the Vesak Day as an International Day of Recognition of Buddhists and the contribution of the Buddha to the world. Since then, the people and the Royal Government of the Kingdom of Thailand, in general, and Mahachulalongkornraja- vidyalaya University, in particular, were very honored to have successively and successfully held for twelve years the United Nations Day of Vesak Celebrations in Thailand. From 2004 to date, we have come a long way in the celebrations, and we are happy to be the host and organizer, but it is time for the celebrations to grow and evolve. The United Nations Day of Vesak is coming to maturity, with twelve celebrations under our belt, much experience gained, and it is time now to share this with others. There will always be room for growth and development, and we are elated to see it grow. In 2006-2007, having joined the International Organizing Committee for the UN Day of Vesak as Deputy Secretary General, Ven. Dr. Thich Nhat Tu has played a crucial role in building strong relationships between the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and the International Council for Day of Vesak in particular and the Global Buddhist communities in general. We have supported and congratulated Vietnam on organizing successful UNDV celebrations and conference in 2008 and 2014, respectively. We have full trust in Vietnam being the host of UNDV 2019 for the third time. We like to thank all those who have contributed to the success of previous celebrations and wish all future celebrations be successful. The teachings of the Buddha see no boundaries; the minds of all are alike; the sufferings of all are similar and truly; and the liberation of all is the same. We are happy to initiate the process, develop the scope, and now it is time for others to follow in similar footsteps, evolve the celebrations into a truly international event that can be shared with Buddhists and Non-Buddhists alike. Let the Dhamma of the Buddha be the beacon to the world, shredding away the ignorance within our hearts, bringing development into sustainable capacity for humanity and more importantly, peace and harmony to the world. Most Ven.Prof. Brahmapundit President, International Council for Day of Vesak (ICDV) President, International Association of Buddhist Universities (IABU) ----------------------------------- PREFACE The history of mankind records how the Buddha got enlightenment and showed a path which not only leads but also guides the world till date. That is solely to emanate wisdom and offer insights which help us overcome numerous challenges and achieve the welfare of humanity. Recognizing his pragmatic approach, values and contribution of Buddhism, the United Nations in a resolution in 1999 decided to celebrate the Triply Blessed Day of Vesak (Birth, Enlightenment and Passing Away of Gautama), falling mostly in a lunar calendar in the month of May. The first celebrations were held way back in the year 2000 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York and subsequently the day has been celebrated hugely in different countries. Today our planet is confronted with a number of crises and unprecedented natural disasters. The imminent threat of terrorism and ethnic violence, tackling poverty, providing education and sustainable development leads us to strive for social justice. There is an urgent need for concerted and constant planning and right effort at an international level to foster permanent peace in the societies and in the lives of individuals. Against the backdrop of such widespread misery and strife leading to complex issues and crises, Buddhism with its rich heritage of tolerance and non-violence can contribute immensely and inspire us with His message of loving-kindness, peace and harmony in today’s world. The United Nations Day of Vesak (UNDV) 2019 is a testimony to this fact. Vietnam got the chance and responsibility of hosting this international Buddhist event UNDV in 2008 and 2014 respectively. The event proved an amazing spectacle of religious and spiritual festivity, with thousands of Buddhists from around the world converging in Vietnam, to spread the Buddha’s message of peace, love and harmony. This is the third time that Vietnam is hosting this important international event which is viewed by Buddhists as an opportunity to spread the Buddha’s message and values of love, peace, non- violence, tolerance and compassion across the world. It is a great honor for Vietnam, the Vietnamese people, the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and Buddhists all around the world to participate in the UNDV celebrations and spread the rich Buddhist heritage, especially its teachings of equality, social justice, respect and understanding for the benefit of all humanity. World Buddhists and particularly the Vietnamese people are excited about their country hosting this auspicious and important event for the third time. This international religious, cultural and academic event would also certainly promote interaction and exchange of Buddhist cultural and intellectual values among diverse countries. The International Buddhist conference with the main theme of “Buddhist Approach to Global Leadership and Shared Responsibilities for Sustainable Societies” during the celebrations could not have been more relevant and timely. The present book is the outcome of one workshop representing one perspective of the conference. Other perspectives of the conference include: (i) Mindful Leadership for Sustainable Peace, (ii) Buddhist Approach to Harmonious Families, Healthcare and Sustainable Societies, (iii) Buddhist Approach to Global Education in Ethics, (iv) Buddhism and the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and (v) Buddhist Approach to Responsible Consumption and Sustainable Development. This international conference aims to foster co-operation among Buddhist communities and institutions, and to develop Buddhist solutions to the global crisis. Papers selected for this volume are those that combine thematic relevance, familiarity with the main theme or sub-themes, significant research in primary resources, innovative theoretical perspectives, clarity of organization and accessible prose style. Acceptable articles in this volume are determined by the Academic Peer-Review Committee. UNDV 2019 certainly is an opportunity for the world Buddhists, the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and all the members of the international community to benefit from the rich traditions, values and spiritual ideals of Buddhism. The pragmatic path shown by Buddha can make the world a better, safer, more peaceful and harmonious place to be cherished and enjoyed by all sentient beings. On behalf of the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and myself, I would like to warmly welcome President of Myanmar, H.E. Mr. U Win Myint, Prime Minister of Nepal, Right Hon. Mr. K.P. Sharma Oli, Vice President of India, H.E Mr. Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, Chairperson of the National Council of Bhutan, H.E. Mr. Tashi Dorji, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations/ Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Asia and the Pacific, H.E. Ms. Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana, Director-General of UNESCO, H.E. Ms. Audrey Azoulay, Ambassadors, and many other dignitaries. It is my honor to warmly welcome National Assembly Chairwoman H.E. Ms. Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, Prime Minister of Vietnam, H.E. Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee H.E.Mr. Tran Thanh Man, Permanent Deputy Prime Minister H.E.Mr. Truong Hoa Binh, Deputy Prime Minister-Minister of External Affairs H.E.Mr. Pham Binh Minh, other dignitaries including former Political leaders of the Government of Vietnam. I extend my warmest welcome to all respected Sangharajas, Sangha Leaders, Buddhist Leaders, Sangha members and 1600 Buddhist Scholars and practitioners from 115 countries and territories, participating in this international celebration and conference. Let me thank all of you for your contributions to this celebration and Conference. My heartfelt thanks are extended to respected members of the Supreme Patriarch Council and Executive members of the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha, especially 25 sub-committees for UNDV 2019 in Vietnam for their devotion and contribution. I take this opportunity to express here my profound gratitude to Most Ven. Prof. Brahmapundit for his continuous supporting Vietnam to host this international event. I also thank profusely all members of the International Council for Day of Vesak (ICDV), Conference Committee and Editorial Board for their devotion. I am grateful to Mr. Xuan Truong for his generosity and other donors, sponsors, volunteers and agencies from the public sector and the private sector for their excellent contribution. This publication and other 29 books printed for Vesak could not have been possible without the persistence, hard work, and dedication of Editorial Committee for their devotion including Most Ven.Dr. Thich Duc Thien, Prof. Le Manh That, and especially Most Ven. Dr. Thich Nhat Tu serving as the international conference coordinator. I extend my warmest and best wishes to all the delegates and participating countries on this special occasion which strengthens our resolve to improve the world by walking on the path shown by the Lord Buddha. Whatever merit there is in publishing this book may be transferred over to the welfare and happiness of all sentient beings. May all sentient beings be happy and released from suffering. We wish the celebration of the United Nations Day of Vesak 2019 in Vietnam every success. Most Ven. Thich Thien Nhon President of National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha Chairman of the United Nations Day of Vesak 2019 in Vietnam

Choice. Power. Speed. Today's leaders continually face these forces. But with too many choices, too much power, and too much speed, leaders often make decisions in a heightened state of emotion (and drama). Hasty decisions are often poor ones and in this climate there is no place to hide. Privacy is a thing of the past; the days of covering up or ignoring a problem are over. In today's transparent culture, the decision making of leaders is more vulnerable then ever-and it is more critical than ever to get it right. Marlene Chism's No-Drama Leadership introduces just the model the corporate world needs. Using case studies, checklists, and examples from various levels of hierarchy in leadership and from a variety of industries, Chism introduces the mindset shifts and practical skills needed to develop enlightened leaders, whose decision making flows from a much more grounded and aligned place. You will learn how to: Identify the signs of misalignment Increase your leadership effectiveness Use four quadrants of change as a catalyst for leadership growth Increase employee engagement Tap into the gifts and talents of your employees Communicate strategically Create a culture of accountability Increase innovation and productivity through empowerment Today's leader needs more than position, power, or business acumen. Today's leader needs more than self-management, communication skills, or emotional intelligence. We need leaders who are aligned, aware, and accountable, who balance choice and power with wisdom and responsibility-leaders who embrace and embody both the inner game of leadership growth with the outer game of business results, modeling both the mindsets and actions that transform the cultures they lead.

In his successful, forty-year career in the consulting industry, Tom Hilditch never found much time for self-reflection. But all that changed when a frightening medical diagnosis forced him into a prolonged period of quiet time, which coincided with the COVID pandemic and an era of massive social upheaval. When Tom received this precious gift of time to reflect, he experienced a personal transformation that showed him the need to clearly observe and understand himself and others better. Becoming an Enlightened Consultant showcases Tom’s individual awakening, and through this personal lens, it reflects a transformation underway in the consulting industry. This book is geared toward consultants in different stages of their careers: those just beginning, those who want to improve how they mindfully move through their careers, those looking to find and implement an effective exit strategy—and all the regulators, clients, and buyers and sellers of firms. Part One explains the basics of the consulting industry and speaks to the role of individual and collective self-awareness in a firm and how they determine success. This section provides important insights and predictions on leading industry trends and emerging markets. It helps each reader understand how to apply their own exploration into self-awareness in a way that will transform their own and their company’s performance. Part Two provides more practical nuts-and-bolts information about the consulting industry today, types of consulting firms and projects, and the range of clients in the consulting market. Offering a transdisciplinary approach that integrates ecosystems, it explores how human and cultural health is essential to our ability to improve consulting outcomes and to inspire and lead team members and firms to work intelligently and respectfully with their clients. The leading edge isn’t a crowded space, but it can be tremendously rewarding.

Perceptions of Enlightened Leadership Related to School Climate

This study identified school leaders who were perceived as having qualities of Enlightened Leadership based on principles found in A Spiritual Dimension of Leadership by Houston and Sokolow (2006). The climate of schools led by these individuals was also examined. The Enlightened Leadership Index (ELI) survey assessed both the perceptions of the principal as an enlightened leader and school climate. A comparison was then made to determine if a relationship existed. The Enlightened Leadership Index Interview (ELII) provided selected survey participants with an opportunity to support the ELI data. Surveys and interviews gathered data from five elementary schools and one intermediate school. Responses from 49 teacher participants were tabulated and analyzed. According to this study, it does not appear that perceptions of a principal as an enlightened leader necessarily have an effect on perceptions of school climate. Of the six principals studied, all had one or more weak enlightened qualities of leadership as per ELI data. However, interview data implied that one principal involved in the study exhibited all six qualities of Enlightened Leadership. Most schools had fairly positive climates, however, the interviewee from School D pointed to poor climate in the past. Though some connections may be cautiously made between areas of Enlightened Leadership to very specific climate statements, there does not appear to be any pattern in the data overall.
