Aware Leadership Body of Knowledge

Welcome Leaders

Take a deep in-breath. And out. That was a moment. The only time where life is to be found. I am Andreas Metzen of Carpe Momentum Advisory. I am an independent senior change and leadership advisor. At the core of Carpe Momentum Advisoryis the body of knowledge of Aware Leadership™. A set of leadership functions, factors and practices to enrich leaders with a full set of leadership capabilities.

Aware Leadership is a comprehensive leadership body of knowledge that I am in the process of creating. The body of knowledge will enable you to lead with wisdom, virtue, and concentration.

Body of Knowledge “Leadership Functions and Factors –  Foundation”

The first set of the Aware Leadership body of knowledge (BoK) is called “Leadership Functions & Factors – Foundation”. The body of knowledge will show where we as leaders face adversity. What are our hindrances and obstacles of while leading? It will make the case for how we are being unskillful. The Foundation BoK will then focus on the solution – the Aware Leadership transformation. What are the transformation qualities? What are skillful states of mind. What tools can we leverage to transform? What mental skills and qualities are required? How can we sharpen the saw? All these questions will be answered and a deeper look into our mental leadership factors will be provided as well. The core elements of the first set of the Aware Leadership body of knowledge (BoK) are the Aware Leadership Factors and Functions.

We can overcome our obstacles and unskillfulness by trying to transform ourselves. Transformation is possible if you can catch yourself in the moments and reach a deep level of understanding of oneself and thereby others. The Aware Leadership body of knowledge lays out a path for transformation. It provides the two key ingredients. On the one hand a powerful set of Aware Leadership Factors. With these factors you can grow and multiply your inner core leadership skills. The other ingredient is the Aware Leadership Functions. With these functions you can ensure that your technical leadership skills include all the fundamental capabilities you need to have as a leader to be leading skillfully.

Body of Knowledge “Training the Leadership Mind – Practices”

The second Body of Knowledge is called “Training the Leadership Mind – Practices.” This book is intended to be the seminar companion for the students and provide the exercises and practices to train your mind like your body. If the power lifter image scares or intimidates you, no worries this is not about achieving. It is however about mental strength and becoming your most skillful self through mental training. Just like the power lifter this takes lots of practice and repetitions. The practices will help you understanding your mind better. The book will have at least these 5 main chapters:
Understanding the Mind, 7 Step Mind Training Practice, 10 Concentration Reflections, Comprehensive Mindfulness Practices, Daily Practices
