Conscious Leaders are more than just competent business or religious leaders. They are leaders deeply connected to themselves, to others, and to this world. They know the interconnectedness of all things and, as a consequence, they seek to lead from this profound awareness.  As a conscious leadership coach and spiritual teacher himself, Dr. Steve McSwain guides leaders and professional people, companies and faith-based organizations in learning and living by the leadership laws of success.  One-on-one and group coaching is available. For more information on Steve McSwain’s conscious leadership coaching programs, CLICK HERE

Dr. Steve McSwain’s The Enoch Factor is an award-winning book, having been named one of two finalists for “Most Inspirational Book of the Year-2011″ in the IndieBook Awards at the Global Book Expo (NYC).

It has been described as “a candid memoir” on how misguided religion can become and what can be done to restore a vital religious or spiritual life.

It calls for an end to religious dogmatism and narrow-mindedness and the consequential crisis of faith that is driving millions to question lifelong beliefs, change religions, or abandon religion altogether.

The Giving Myths makes the compelling case that the highest purpose of human existence is to give yourself away and generously share your abundance with the world.

Being generous isn’t the way to happiness, it is happiness.

The life you’ve always wanted cannot be found in things such as career, relationships, personal achievements, or, as Steve McSwain puts it, “…in your trials, tragedies, trophies or triumphs. It is found instead in learning the skill of getting outside of yourself and freely giving yourself away in the service of others. The Giving Myths shows readers how.
