In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities
While in the expert's mind there are few. -Suzuki
This workshop is for individuals who are interested in exploring an intensive experiential process to become more effective as mindful leaders both in personal and professional life settings. Designed for entrepreneurs, executives, managers, and others committed to improving their communication and leadership skills, it is especially intended for those open to doing deep personal work to transform the self. The major areas of focus will be resolving conflict, developing trust with those who feel threatened, addressing blind spots in self-esteem, healing blocks in creativity, and building support for transforming vision into reality.
The workshop includes Gestalt open-seat work, sharing feedback on leadership and communication styles, improving coaching skills, developing the unconscious to creatively solve problems, mindfulness meditation practice, and role-playing exercises for real-life work situations. We will also explore the functions of building and shaping mindstrength, a power tool for change that enables you to enter and lead from the state of Big Mind, Wise Mind, and Open Mind. Enrollment is limited to thirty-five participants.
