Nerisha Maharaj, MBA.CA

International Executive Leadership and Life Coach,
Author "Self-Love: The Authentic Path to Conscious Leadership

Join us for 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 and spiritual intelligence. Drawing on both her professional experience and award-winning published UCT Graduate School of Business 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 coaching experience. Her presentation will explore aspects of her book, such as,- 

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

The book highlights for established and emerging leaders, the critical role which self-love can play in their overall well-being and effectiveness. 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, consciousness and purpose.
