Two Birds in a Tree: Timeless Indian Wisdom for Business Leaders Ram Nidumolu

The Higher Reality of Business
The health of business is inextricably linked with the health of humanity and nature. But our current approaches to leadership treat business as entirely separate—and the result has been recurring economic, environmental, and human crises.

In this extraordinary book, Ram Nidumolu uses evocative parables and stories from the ancient Indian wisdom texts, the Upanishads, to introduce Being-centered leadership. This new kind of leadership is anchored in the concept of Being, the fundamental reality that underlies all phenomena. Being-centered leaders are guided by an innate sense of interconnection—the good of the whole becomes an integral part of their decisions and actions. Using the experiences of over twenty trailblazing CEOs, as well as those from his own life, Nidumolu describes a four-stage road map every aspiring leader can use to reconnect business to the wider world—to the benefit of all.

Ram Nidumolu is the CEO of Innovastrat, Inc., which helps executives at Global 500 companies develop a corporate vision, strategy and culture for sustainable business. He is also an affiliated scholar at Stanford University’s Kozmetsky Global Collaboratory, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, and a former professor at leading US business schools. Ram is the author of a just-released book about Being-Centered Leadership, Two Birds in a Tree: Timeless Indian Wisdom for Business Leaders, published by Berrett-Koehler, San Francisco. Ram can be reached by email at and on twitter at @twobirdsgroup.
