What is the Secret to Conscious Leadership and Self-Mastery?

Self-love is a topic many of us seek to avoid–yet it is one which has a profound impact on our happiness, effectiveness and spiritual growth as human beings. What is less well known is how self-love influences leadership ability. Drawing on both her professional experience and her award-winning published MBA research into the area of Self-Love and Leadership, Nerisha Maharaj describes how self-love impacts our ability to lead both ourselves and others successfully–sharing direct inspiring insights from her interviews with leaders and leadership experts. In the book, she discusses:

  • The meaning of self-love in its highest expression;
  • How self-love does not equate to narcissism and selfishness;
  • The impact of self-love on leadership attributes such as authencity and decision-making;
  • The Five Constructs of Self-Love; and
  • Practical coaching techniques on cultivating healthy levels of self-love.

This book highlights, for established and emerging leaders, the critical role which self-love can play in their overall well-being and ultimate performance. This encompasses not just corporate executives, but academics, parents, teachers, coaches, community leaders, political leaders, spiritual leaders, and just about anybody who chooses to lead both themselves and others to greater levels of growth and purpose. Already in its second print run, the book has been prescribed as reading by the UCT Graduate School of Business for the Masters in Inclusive Innovation class. The book was released in April 2016 at an official AWCA book launch at Unilever–Get your copies at or if Durban-based, directly from me at
