Awaking Leadership is an enlightening read for Generation Y and Z and a reminder of earlier days for Boomers before we fell into lockstep with the corporate world or were molded by the ideas of others. Horner modernizes and adds a new twist to Richard Bach and the Age of Aquarius in this very well written and informative book.
— The International Review of Books, 5/5 Stars

At a time when the world around us seems to be falling apart with so many global difficulties . . . Christine Horner provides an excellent analysis on how local action can make global changes.

...It is a beautiful way of thinking. I think that if everyone read and appreciated this book and this way of thinking, the world would be a better place. I recently saw Dr. Jane Goodall speak and the message was similar, "be the change". I would recommend this book because it is well-written, challenges thought patterns, and provides insight on how to be a better person, and leader in everyday life.
— Auntie Bean, LibraryThing.com Early Reviewer
This book is quite fascinating and a food for thought book.
— Pam Thomas, NetGalley.com Reviewer
I enjoyed how the book broke it down as exactly what a leader is and how we need to awaken the leader within on a small and big level. I like how it connects the personal idea of leadership with how it connects to the community and globally. Lots of big ideas that should make us all think, ponder, and reflect.

"Every moment you spend lost in fantasy, not taking action, you abdicate your power. Fantasy is then used by ego to discount your present significance and to deny your unique gifts that are waiting to be recognized and put into expression now."
This book doesn't offer any mindfulness exercises like one would expect but instead challenges the reader to make an effort to seek those materials on their own. Resources in the book include links to the authors websites and other online sites, including a link to study by The National Institute of Health on mindfulness. I found that extremely helpful.
Negatives about the book were just the physical book. The copy I had was smaller than a standard book so it was a bit cumbersome to read. The text was not printed well and it was a bit clunky. The cover was not high quality. As a person who still enjoys picking up a book instead of an e-reader, I would like to see a little more care being given to the printed book.
Unfortunately, this book was extremely vague. I was looking for step by step tips on how to unleash the leader, locked deep inside of me. I didn't gain much knowledge from this book at all. The only significant bits of information provided described that being mindful and listening to our feelings is extremely important, and that in order to lead, one must address and acknowledge the leadership potential in others. Any leadership that exerts power over others and contributes to disunity should be avoided. However, I really didn't learn any distinct tools to develop my leadership skills.
