Boundless Leadership: The Program

The book, Boundless Leadership, grew out of Elazar Aslan and Joe Loizzo’s ongoing partnership in developing a breakthrough method of helping their clients realize their full leadership potential.  That same method has also given rise to Nalanda Institute’s transformational Boundless Leadership Program. Refined and tested over ten years, this systematic program merges three fields of know-how into three disciplines—of mind, heart and body—that help participants cultivate the three key traits of Boundless Leadership and reimagine their leadership, purpose and impact.

The Boundless Leadership book is the authors’ way of making available to a wider audience the breakthroughs in science, leadership and transformational practice they wove together into the program. If you would like to take a deeper dive into the science and practice of Boundless Leadership, and share your journey with a community of peers, please join us for the next six-month live online Boundless Leadership Program, offered from January to June each year.
