A deeply profound and spiritual conversation with author Dr. Hitendra Wadhwa on his new book, Inner Mastery, Outer Impact: How Your Five Core Energies Hold the Key to Success.

Dr. Wadhwa is the founder of the Mentora Institute, which serves a vast range of organizations globally, ranging from Fortune 500s to social enterprises and educational institutions. He also created the Personal Leadership & Success course at Columbia, an award-winning approach to the pursuit of success in life and leadership.

In INNER MASTERY, OUTER IMPACT, Dr. Wadhwa discusses our pursuit of outer success (i.e., being liked and loved; supported and promoted) and inner success (i.e., being true to oneself in everything we do). He introduces readers to the idea that all success, both inner and outer, arises from one place: our Inner Core. This is the space of highest potential that lies within each and every one of us.

Dr. Wadhwa provides extensive scientific research and masterful storytelling about exemplary figures like Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela, masterfully fusing the principles of Inner Mastery from his roots in India with the principles of Outer Impact from his 30 years in the US. He focuses on how we can activate our Five Core Energies — Purpose, Wisdom, Growth, Love and Self-Realization — to create our framework for success in life and leadership.
