What does it mean to work as a leader in today's business environment? In Subtle POWER, Gabriel Sakakeeny offers "Your job as a leader is to create and deliver an inspiring future of increasing value by causing effective action in yourself and others." At a time when many businesses, from multinational corporations to start-ups, are realizing that the prevailing paradigm of talent management must yield to something more productive and successful, Subtle POWER, offers a fresh, reality-based collaboration framework founded on accountability, self-empowerment, and effective communication. With roots in the Human Potential Movement, Sakakeeny asks the reader to pause and reflect on the language of tone, intellect, and spirit; language which has lost its integrity from unconscious overuse. He sets out a course for persons in positions of trust and influence to become "unconsciously competent in the art of leadership." How does a leader go about this transformation? Sakakeeny's methodology is the result of a unique body of experience blending over thirty years in business as a C-level executive, entrepreneur, inventor, engineer, marketer, and consultant with over forty years of leading symphonic orchestras. Subtle POWER contains a toolbox of logically organized foundational concepts. Building on these, he expertly layers ever more detailed ideas using familiar stories and helpful analogies to provide a succinct narrative. All the while, the chapters of Subtle POWER are structured so that, as concepts are introduced and explored, previous points are integrated as a means to introduce subsequent ideas. Chapters conclude with a summary and exercise, Think On This, wherein the reader can begin to practically apply the new conceptual information to improve leadership competency and living skills. By exploring foundational frameworks such as The Fields of Existence and The Five Modes of Intention, along with several other key constructs, leaders and aspiring leaders receive guidance and wisdom on the way to becoming intentional, conscious, and ultimately happier and more successful leaders.
