Quantum Leadership refers to a mode of perceiving. It represents a shift in perspective from separateness to connectedness in which leaders see the world as entangled and non-local.
The call for change in businesses and its role is shaped by the recognition that many people working at the intersection of business and society perceive corporate leaders unfavourably – in the sense that they do not deliver on the promise of prosperity in any meaningful sense. Calling for quantum leaders is a dual case for redefining sustainability as flourishing and for introducing consciousness as the mother of all capital.
The idea of consciousness as a form of capital is not in and of itself remarkable. Many theories of leadership and organizational behavior are based on mental models and emotional states of the people involved. However, our contribution is to suggest that a range of mindfulness practices can facilitate the emergence of a new type of leadership. Quantum Leaders have greater purpose, compassion for others, and care of future generations, not only because it’s profitable but because that is who they are.
Quantum Leadership refers to a mode of perceiving. It represents a shift in perspective from separateness to connectedness in which leaders see the world as entangled and nonlocal. The duality and reductionism of western thinking is dethroned, not just metaphorically but, as a reflection of a new science-based understanding of the oneness of physical reality.
It is our hope that business people around the world will embrace the idea of exploring self to realize their fullest potential. This is a never-ending journey, and we believe we will all benefit from the self-cultivation process to improve all aspects of their lives.
