Buddha Hunters

Secrets of how Irresistible Leaders liberate the human spirit at work

At long last Bruce publishes his thoughts on leadership

I have often said I want to become an old Guru. As I said to someone, "I've already achieved the first bit!"

Anyway, my colleague and friend, well known author David Parmenter has been telling me for ages that the only way to become a Guru is to write a book. So after lots of sweat and long hours I have finally put my thoughts to paper and published my first book on leadership. It is called: "Buddha Hunters - Secrets of How Irresistible Leader Develop the Human Spirit at Work." It is 164 pages of pure genius.

The key message

This is a business book on leadership. It has nothing to do with religion. Its central theme is captured in a wonderful story.

The story

Four hundred years ago a group of Thai monks hid their Golden Buddha from marauding tribes by covering it with clay. Soon afterwards the temple was attacked and everyone was killed. For the next 400 years everyone thought this Buddha was a clay Buddha. Recently, when they tried to move it, the clay broke off and the Golden Buddha inside was revealed.

Irresistible Leaders are Buddha Hunters. They know that everyone has a Golden Buddha inside, however, it's mostly covered with mud that people have flicked at them over the years; often by those they trust most, like parents, teachers and managers. Pathetically, they also flick mud at themselves.

As a result, many people are a tiny fraction of their potential, an unexplored world of possibilities waiting to be released and channelled towards great good.

Irresistible Leaders are Buddha Hunters. They help their people find their Golden Buddhas by breaking off the mud so their brightness can shine through again and liberate the human spirit at work.

Irresistible leaders are like iron to magnets. People are drawn to them without understanding why or how. Irresistible leaders work on themselves constantly to understand themselves, their Genius, their personal branding and their subconscious mind. Without this understanding people will never be BIG enough to be irresistible leaders. This book shows them how.
