Expand the Circle

Enlightened Leadership for Our New World of Work

> The nature of our work has changed.
> What we expect from our work has changed.
> So why hasn't our leadership?

About the Book

Expand the Circle explores the disconnect that separates employees from employers, threatens worker well-being, and prevents each of us from realizing our full potential. When I experienced this disconnect firsthand, I scrambled to resume my long abandoned meditation practice as a way to regain my footing.

While on the cushion, I discovered a technique leaders can use to reach their next level. My Expand the Circle framework now teaches enlightened leadership techniques in progressive layers:

  • Lead Yourself
  • Lead Others
  • Lead Your Team
  • Lead Your Organization
  • Lead the World

My writing has been described as engaging, thought-provoking, and inspiring. I combine my signature “edutainment” style with practical tips and hands-on exercises designed to help readers boost awareness, hone aspiration, and support meaningful action.

The book features a unique combination of my military experiences, 100+ psychology and business literature references, interviews with thought leaders and executives, and unexpected sources of inspiration.

Expand the Circle is designed for “leaders at every level” as well as the team leaders, executives, and HR leaders who desperately seek to increase the leadership capacity in their organizations.

Legacy leadership approaches aren’t suited for today’s work nor today’s worker. It’s time to usher in a new era of leadership.

It’s time to Expand the Circle.
