About the Author:

Shahbano earned a BBA (Hons) from the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Pakistan, along with a gold medal for graduating on the top of her class in 1989. In 1994, she earned an MSc from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. She spent ten years working for social justice issues in New York City and received the Union Square Award from the Fund for the City of New York in 2000. By 2002, she like many activists, she experienced burn out, and was forced to reconsider her approach to her life in general, and her work in particular. In 2006, Shahbano decided to work in the development sector in Pakistan. Here, she also struggled to define ethical leadership and authentic contribution to the lives of the poor people her organization served. After attending a Personal Excellence Workshop by Etsko Schuitema in 2010, she went into a process of introspection to become more conscious of her intent in both her professional and her personal life. This turned out to be immensely rewarding, helping her to understand some of the issues she had struggled with all her life. As she became aware of her own intent and deliberately put her attention on giving, many situations previously fraught with confusion became clear, allowing her to decide and act appropriately. In other situations conflict and problems disappeared altogether, simply as a result of the shift in intent. Metaphorically, the experience was akin to the lifting of a fog that had been clouding her vision, and had prevented her from walking in the right direction. Suddenly, things magically and effortlessly started falling into place. In her work, Shahbano has always strived to contribute to society in a meaningful way, while doing what is right. She has a life-long fascination with the issues of inner growth, ethical leadership and the conditions that inspire people to transcend their self-interest, to excel and contribute. Married and the mother of one daughter, Shahbano’s personal interests include poetry and calligraphy.
