“An unexamined life is not worth living,” – Socrates
This is true for the general public and it is critical for the influential leader. How can you be influential if you do not know who you are, what you stand for and what meaning you are bringing to the world?
- Self-awareness helps you to create the change that makes you:
- A better leader
- More emotionally intelligent
- Better communicator
- Increase empathy
- A stronger influence on the lives of your team and your customers
The leader who lacks self-knowledge and awareness can only be a transactional or dictatorial leader, at best. They have very little transformative effect on the lives they touch. They also tend to lack emotional intelligence and even have psychopathic tendencies.
Yes. It is that serious.
There are various paths to increasing self-awareness. One is to purely focus on oneself. Another way is to find yourself in relationship to the people, the planet, the cosmos and the unquestionable entanglement between you and all that exists.
To accelerate that self-knowledge, you will need to go back to school. Not just any old school.
Every year since 2012, a group of the world’s leading experts in the synergy between science and consciousness meet in London to share the latest discoveries that demonstrate that your personal transformation directly correlates with global transformation.

Why does an influential leader need to be there?
IF you choose to increase the impact of the legacy your company and team are making, then having self-awareness and awareness of what’s happening to the world around you is vital. The Consciousness and Human Evolution will allow you to be at the cutting-edge of transformation and will help you achieve that.
In 1914, attorney and labour union advocate, Nicholas Klein gave a speech that included the following:
“First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. And then they attack you and want to burn you. And then they build monuments to you.”
Therefore, be aware that when any great leader steps into the path of self-discovery, they encounter these stages. (Hopefully, not all literally!) This is perfectly normal when one person refuses conformity and mediocrity, whilst others understand. Step forward anyway.
