— FutureShapers LLC, a professional services firm providing transformational leadership development programs for executives, has announced that two new members have joined its Consciousness Coaching team. Bestselling author, global visionary and activist John Perkins and senior Silicon Valley leadership development executive Anne Griswold add to the diverse offering of talent and experience represented by the FutureShapers team of executive coaches.
Perkins, former Chief Economist at a major consulting firm, author of books on transformation, including two New York Times Bestsellers, and a sought-after international keynote speaker, is also a social entrepreneur - the founder or cofounder of several not-for-profit organizations.
Griswold has more than 25 years of experience in developing leaders at every level of organization and across multiple industries. She has held executive positions in leadership development for several corporations in Silicon Valley and the health services industry.
FutureShapers CEO Eddington stated, “We set out to attract a ‘dream team’ of highly-skilled and mindful master coaches and this is our first step in building such a team. Consciousness Coaching is a unique form of support for executives who aspire to be more self-aware and powerful – to lead more consciously.” Eddington pointed to the growing interest in mindfulness amongst leading edge companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Google. “We are in discussions with other candidates and will announce them as they come aboard.”
Consciousness Coaching requires a significant commitment by the executive who aspires to become more mindful and self-aware. The year-long program includes face-to-face and phone time where the coach and the executive come together in intimate, trusting settings.
One of the main premises of FutureShapers is that great leadership begins with personal wisdom and personal wisdom is a function of the consciousness the leader brings to the situation.
