Boundless Leadership: The Authors

Joe Loizzo

Boundless Leadership is the fruit of our two converging life journeys—part manifesto, part road map. It makes the case for the fundamentally new way of being and leading we need to navigate this final phase in our collective human transition to truly equitable global interdependence. And it lays out a step-by-step path of transformational learning and practice that can empower us to sustainably be at our best, inspire others to realize their best, and embody new ways of being human that can have far deeper and wider positive impact than any personal best we dreamed possible.” —Joe Loizzo

The moral imperative that drives this book is that the path from our old way of being to the new one, despite the steep learning curve involved, is traversable by anyone who wishes to walk it. One’s leadership no longer needs to be guided by the pessimistic projections of a culture of self-limiting beliefs, when we can as easily lead by the boundless imaginings of a world of possibilities. With businesses now responsible for more than just profits, boundless leaders can arise and create a world we are proud to leave for our children and our children’s children.” — Elazar Aslan
