Postulating the Leadership Geometry – The Sacred Corridor WOW Factors study traces the journey of senior women leaders and presents the outcome as a model titled The Sacred Corridor – inspired by the tantric artefact Sri Chakra.  The Sacred Corridor is conceived based on the intuitive expressions of women leaders and the recursive nature of their experiences. Represented as three concentric ‘Circuits of Excellence’, corresponding to a realm of reality that punctuates their journey. Each circuit of excellence signifies a specific stage in the journey that brings with it distinct set of priorities and challenges. The leadership journey begins at the outer circuit of excellence that acts as the Portals of Entry, progressing towards the mediating circuit that serve as Rituals of Passage to reach the inner circuit that represents the Sanctum of Possibilities.
