Leadership is about the release of human possibilities, about learning how to shape the future. In this ground-breaking new work, Jaworski uses his own story to create an entirely new view of what leadership can be. When leaders are in a state of commitment and surrender, he says, they begin to experience what is called "synchronicity," or predictable miracles. By shifting from seeing a world made up of things to seeing a world primarily composed of relationships, leaders can enter a realm of endless possibilites. 2 cassettes.

Synchronicity is an inspirational guide to developing the most essential leadership capacity for our time: how we can collectively shape our future. Through the telling of his life story, Jaworski posits that a real leader sets the stage on which "predictable miracles", seemingly synchronistic in nature, can - and do - occur. He shows that this capacity has more to do with our being - our total orientation of character and consciousness - than with what we do. Leadership, he explains, is about creating - day by day - a domain in which human beings continually deepen their understanding of reality and are able to participate in shaping the future. He describes three basic shifts of mind required if we are to create and discover an unfolding future - shifts in how we see the world, how we understand relationships, and how we make commitments - and offers a new definition of leadership that applies to all types of leaders.About the Author:
