Published: Career Development International, Vol. 4 Iss: 3, pp.149 – 154

Methods: This paper explores, theoretically and empirically, some relationships between self-development and leadership skills development. A theory about consciousness and leadership practices will be presented drawing from both modern science and the oldest texts on consciousness, the Vedas.

Results: Empirically, in a small, preliminary eight-month pretest-posttest control group study in one company, 24 subjects who learned a standard self-development technique, Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation, grew more in their expression of leadership skills, measured by the Leadership Practices Inventory, and expressed in individual and group interviews (0.05 and 0.01 significance).
