Leading in Disruptive Times
Some call it the 4th industrial revolution. Others call it the Age of Connection. Whatever you call it, the increasing speed, complexity, and uncertainty of this time is changing the workplace and challenging leaders like never before. Ordinary leadership development may make the ego marginally more capable. But it is not up to the challenge of resolving the ego’s stubborn reactivity to forces raining down upon it, or seeing beyond ego altogether to the essential connectedness, which guides leadership at its best.
Sense connection. Seize opportunity. Serve people.
We equip leaders with the physical tools of Zen training that they can develop a felt sense of connectedness to the bigger picture, seize the opportunities in challenges, and serve people, not as other-than-themselves, but as extensions of a Self without limits. We help leaders develop the courage, resilience and groundedness of hara (lower abdomen), find their voice, master energy, and take away fear. What mindfulness does for self-awareness, the physicality of Zen does for self-actualization: i.e., bring desired futures into the actual present through oneself.
Move beyond Fear…Expand into Abundance
While we often don’t name it as such, fear is what lurks beneath everything that makes leadership small, from lack of risk-taking to silo mentality, conflicted relationships, micromanagement, poor quality, and self-protection. We equip leaders to flip all of this around by physically working with fear and dissolving its false foundation. As leaders move beyond fear, they settle the fears of others, spread inspiration, and create the future with abundance.
Open Enrollment Programs
We offer programs and learning pathways for business leaders, not-for-profit and public sector leaders, educators and entrepreneurs, as well as a specialized track for healthcare leaders. Our open enrollment programs start with foundational programs (i.e., The Zen Leader or HEAL) and continue along pathways of learning that leaders can take as far and deep as they wish to stretch themselves, including into Zen training, certification in Zen leadership, or certification as a Zen leadership coach or instructor.
