The Power of Being presents a refreshing secular spirituality for stressed leaders and managers who are looking for ways to go beyond monetary motivation. It aims for the qualitative and inner strategies needed to stand firm in the storms of corporate life.
It is touching the core issues of leadership, like integrity, motivation, and teamwork. However, it's not a how-to-do approach, but an inspirational contribution towards a paradigm shift. The concept is woven into stories, exclusively based on personal experience. The key issues like body, heart, mind, and awareness are repeated in a circular way and on different levels of understanding. Although Andreas Gruber studied conflict resolution, leadership, and marketing management, this book is about everything else than theory. It is a pure expression of personal experience, based on more than 25 years hands-on experience in sales and management, and a 3.5 years journey around the world, which ultimately became a quest, rather than a search for answers and solutions. A page turner that goes much further than merely entertaining the mind. It encourages self-reflection without preaching or condemning, opening new personal views and corporate perspectives.
