Over the centuries, many books have been written showing the connections between psychology and spirituality. However, never before has anyone succeeded in spelling out the psychological steps needed to attain spiritual consciousness. In this remarkable book, that is exactly what Dr. Thomas Legere has done. Coming from a truly remarkable background that includes degrees in philosophy, theology, spirituality, and psychology, Dr. Legere has the gift of being able to communicate profound truths in a clear and simple way. Finally, spiritual seekers will discover here what spirituality does and does not mean from a psychological perspective. Richly illustrated with helpful charts and diagrams, Living an Authentic Life will explain, in the everyday language of psychology, each step of the universal journey to wholeness. Living an Authentic Life is at once an intensely personal journey as well as a deeply compelling exploration of the human path toward authenticity and integrity. This is a book for everyone who yearns to break out of the mediocrity of the unexamined life and plunge into self discovery and transformation. Thomas Legere has written a wonderful book for our times. Jose Stevens, Ph.D. Psychologist and Author of Transforming Your Dragons and Secrets of Shamanism

The Unveiling of the Authentic Life’s Mysteries By Br. Winner Br. Winner had a great desire to share with the whole world every single philosophical truth that God in every single day downloads in his spirit through meditations on his revealed thoughts of the Bible, regarding what it takes to savor one’s authentic life on Earth. Secondly, this book shows the close observation of trying to find out why people all over the world and the author have been going through undesirable experiences, results, or situations since the dawn of time. So once a disease is detected, it’s easier to recommend the remedy. Finally, the author had the strongest desire of helping the new generation coming up after his generation, and the one ahead of him through the series of this book to never make the same mistake he and his head generation have been making.

This book presents the first evidence-based approach to Authentic Leadership Development. It is based on a group-coaching format that brings together small groups of leaders to discuss personally significant leadership issues generally not explored in usual leadership development, such as the influence of their personal histories, the impact of their psychological make-up, and the ambitions for their future leadership. The book starts with an overview of the idea of authenticity and its philosophical roots, and explains how this informs the past/present/future group-coaching approach to Authentic Leadership Development. It presents statistical and conceptual evidence of the program’s efficacy and explores how the social processes at work within the group positively impact and develop the leader’s self-concept and the benefits this brings. Importantly, it also details exactly how the leader changes and grows as a result of the group-coaching, and the positive ways in which this benefits their leadership role and the organisations they work in. Finally, it questions the notion of ethics and morals in Authentic Leadership and critically re-appraises the idea of leadership development evaluation. Authentic Leadership Development group-coaching has been shown to develop leaders that are conscious, competent, confident and congruent and as the qualitative analysis presented in the book illustrates, these 4 over-arching categories are made up of 7 further key leadership attributes that are developed, which include an enhanced Strategic Orientation, increased Confidence and Clarity and greater Management Mindfulness, among others. The book also features personal vignettes throughout, which illustrate how individual leaders have effectively applied these newly developed attributes in their leadership roles. An Evidence-based Approach to Authentic Leadership Development represents essential reading for leaders who want to engage in a ‘proven’ form of ALD. It will be of great interest to professionals across a variety of industries who have responsibility to provide robust leadership development programs for their organisations, as well as coaches specialising in executive, business and leadership coaching and those interested in new applications for group coaching.
