Leadership for the Disillusioned is a true gem among the avalanche of books published each year on leadership. In a very different voice, Amanda Sinclair provides us with deep insights in her search for a different type of leader she truly liberates us from the shadow side of the leader within.' Professor Manfred Kets de Vries, Director, INSEAD Global Leadership Center We expect our leaders to be assertive, confident, in control.

Can they, and we, live up to this? Or should leadership instead be aimed at altogether different outcomes? Amanda Sinclair, writer, professor at Australia's foremost Business School and yoga teacher, tackles these fundamental questions about leadership head on. She shows how our ideas about leadership have been captured by narrow interests and corporate templates. Challenging leadership assumptions and myths, she explores an approach to leading that is truly liberating for both leaders and those around them.

Leadership for the Disillusioned is not a guide to getting to the top: it will take you on a different journey. Sinclair draws on a wide set of social ideas, including Eastern philosophies, as well as personal encounters with exceptional leaders. Leadership for the Disillusioned is for anyone who is looking for an alternative way to lead.
