Deepak Chopra: Enlightened Leadership
Deepak Chopra, M.D., co-founder of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing, as well as founder and chairman of The Chopra Foundation, discusses enlightened leadership and spirituality.
On the signature trait of enlightened leaders: “[Enlightened leaders] take time every day to reflect on what they really want out of their lives, but also on what the people they lead want out of theirs.”
On the connection between meditation and potential: “Irrespective of your conditioning, the core of your being has infinite possibilities. Because meditation allows you to go beyond your conditioning, it's very useful [as a means to] unleash your potential. It brings out what is already at the core of our being – insight, intuition, imagination and creativity.”
On maintaining a healthy lifestyle: “You must get good sleep and enough exercise, as you’re much more effective if your body is rested and energized and your mind is calm and not distracted.”
