Overview

    A senior corporate executive, facing the relentless pace of business, is expected to be a “force multiplier” today! It thus becomes imperative for the executive to be firmly grounded – while staying in control of one’s context – in the pursuit of leading oneself, one’s team, and one’s organization to greater heights of accomplishment and performance.

    While the maturing executive does come to terms with the cross-functional requirements of the widening ambit of one’s roles and responsibilities, it is usually in investing in one’s competencies and capabilities that one falls short. One’s competencies may thus get taken for granted. These capabilities, at their root, spring from the mental models that no longer meet the tests of the times.

    This program helps aspiring senior leaders take a hard close look at themselves and reassess their preparedness to handle the increasingly complex world beset with a multitude of challenges and opportunities. A broad-based exposure to the many opportunities available at leading oneself, one’s teams, and the organization shall doubtlessly lead the way to a healthier, happier, and more engaged workplace that continues to deliver exceptional results.

    Our recent struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to manage one’s inner world effectively. Not only must the senior executive maintain one’s composure, but he/she must also role-model the unshakeable calming center to inspire one’s team.

    Carefully designed modules shall expose the participants to the distilled wisdom from various fields, including neurosciences, management, behavioral sciences, and psychology, to lead healthy organizational cultures that deliver. The content is rooted in cutting-edge mindfulness, scholarly research, practitioner field experiences, and clinically proven methodologies. We will appreciate why the Harvard Business Review calls mindfulness the “must‐have skill for executives” and how to leverage the same for extending one’s well-being along with that of our colleagues, teams, and organizations. The Holistic Mindfulness training module is a science- and practice-based technology for catapulting your personal and professional lives into the next orbit. As we refine our perceptions of the external and internal stimuli, a greater sense of mastery enables overall well-being and efficacy leading to eventual transformation.

    As Yoda wisely said, “You must unlearn what you have learned…. Do or do not. There is no try.” Let us invite you to a journey that will transform how you look at yourself, life, and the world. Transformational results, both internal and external – as experienced by 270+ participants with a cumulative professional work experience of 6000+ years in the previous batches – shall surely follow.
