In this refreshing approach to leadership development, Peri Chickering offers a philosophy that is bold and current and yet, in many respects, as old as the planets: she proposes there is a flow—an underlying rhythm—to life that fuels and evokes effective leadership that we can all access by claiming our individual gifts and reconnecting them with the wise and intelligent universe from whence they came.
Written in a straightforward voice and peppered with practical exercises and thoughtful anecdotes, Leadership Flow invites readers to discover how their natural skills fit within the wider ecosystem of life. Highly accessible and eye-opening, this book is a must-read for new and experienced leaders seeking an alternative way to have an impact and make a difference.
“A beautifully written book for all who want to lead in ways that enhance the common good and their own well-being, offered up in the form of compelling personal stories, insights drawn from nature, and a wide range of wisdom traditions. Chickering’s teachings will affirm and guide you as you bring your gifts to a world in need.”
