🧩 Leadership for a Complex World

70% of C-suite executives have considered quitting for better work-life balance - are you part of this statistic?

Business, economic, and social challenges are intense. Burnout is endemic. How are these impacting us as we move into 2023? Have you taken a moment to reconnect with your purpose, before moving forward?

Under all this stress, it’s easy to lose sight of our curiosity, open-mindedness, and desire to connect empathically. But to be a great leader means to listen deeply, tap into our deeper emotions, and trust that solutions will emerge when the time is right.

In this 90-minute session facilitated by Genevive Heng and Brian Henderson, we’ll give leaders a taster of how mindful dialogue can help them find their own answers for wherever they are on their leadership journey:

  • How can I slow down, when everything and everyone around me does not?
  • How do I make time for the big questions of life and leadership?
  • How do I become a more authentic, caring leader?
  • How can I manage my own emotional state, and show up as a

✨ What to Expect:

  • Opening guided meditation
  • Contemplations to reconnect with your purpose as a leader
  • Practice of mindful dialogue skills
  • Group sharing and closing

👋🏻 This event is for:

  • Anyone in a leadership role of any nature or level - founders, corporate, NGO, government, business, sports... this is suitable for you!
