Leadership Energy

Staying the course in the face of resistance, unpopularity and loneliness requires tremendous inner strength. This strength is the fuel that keeps real leaders from giving up, and we call it Leadership Energy. We asked 10,000 randomly selected people from 27 countries to answer three questions about leadership and personal success. Next, we asked the same three questions to about 500 people whom we had educated on leadership energy and its three sources via a two-day conference. Our goal was to see if those with a bit of context and education would answer the questions differently compared to the randomly selected survey respondents without context or education. The essence of this research is captured in the article entitled, Quantum Mechanics, Spirituality and Leadership.
