Reviews

This is a book where the title truly describes what you will find inside, a leader’s guide to be more conscious and aware so that we might make a real difference in the lives of those we lead. Rosalie’s approach to mindfulness and self-awareness is direct and candid, and pushes the reader to engage in the process of uncovering our leadership style on a deeper, more personal level. This is a must read for any leader who wants to move beyond the superficial level of ‘political correctness’ and connect with their direct reports and peers in an authentic way that will positively move an organization forward.” ~ Linda Newman, Leadership Development Consultant

Conscious Leadership in the Workplace is an excellent guidebook for those leaders who want to lead more effectively and achieve satisfaction in their lives and careers. As Chamberlain astutely points out, when leaders develop a higher level of consciousness and self awareness, they inspire others and serve as role models for growth. Clear and to the point, the book addresses blocks and behaviors that can impede conscious leadership and provides tools and exercises to increase success and enable reaching one’s potential.” ~ Bruce D Schneider, founder, Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and author of Energy Leadership

Rosalie Chamberlain’s book is a thoughtful and practical exploration of what it means to lead in today’s complex and hectic workplace. Written from the perspective that all of us are leaders regardless of the specific roles or titles we hold, this book serves as a guide for anyone and everyone who wants to lead in an inclusive and transformative way. It’s a great resource for those who want to start or deepen their journeys into their development as leaders!” ~ Dr. Arin N. Reeves, NEXTIONS

If you are thinking of becoming a leader in the workplace and would like to get a little closer with this topic, then this is going be a great read.  The author created this book in a way that is easy to follow and understand.  It is a lot of information to take in, but I did not feel bored or like a headache was coming on while getting through it.  

Rosalie Chamberlain does a marvelous job in creating this guidebook for becoming a conscious leader. It is a ‘must have’ for any corporate library and a ‘must read’ for anyone aspiring to be a real leader.  – John Renesch, author, “Conscious Leadership” and “The Conscious Organization.”

 

This book is about values. The kind of values that can make you a leader in the workplace. The ideas expressed in Rosalie’s book apply to just about anybody who has ever held a job. It’s a mini-course in bringing your best YOU to the job. The people who truly know themselves, are not ruffled if things don’t go exactly according to plan, can take criticism and see where it’s coming from, and still keep a smile on their face all day long – those people are the ones we pretty much gravitate to at work if we want advice or just need to vent. Those people are leaders. Those people get ahead. Those people probably read Rosalie’s book! Amazon Review by JerseyPeach
