Leadership that Cultivates Compassion, Wisdom, and Well-Being in a New Age
In partnership with the leadership development firm Whirling Chief, we are offering a unique and practical program for leaders focused on awakening humanity at work by cultivating compassion, wisdom, and well-being. In this powerful three-day program, we will use the latest research in neuroscience, the bio-physiology of compassion and well-being, and dynamic findings from organizational behavior and psychology to learn the skills of resilience and creating thriving organizations that improve the well-being of those who work in them.
The rise of artificial intelligence, robotics, and “smart” technologies powers change faster than ever. For some, this new era has ushered in prosperity and the potential to address some of humanity’s most vexing challenges in creative new ways. For others, however, this era of technological and social change has ushered in isolation, loneliness, and fear.
Humankind needs a new form of leadership
A significant body of research shows that when people in positions of power adopt a human-centered view of business that emphasizes a culture of respect, trust, compassion, and wisdom, the performance of the organization rises along with individual well-being. Rigorous evidence from multiple disciplines demonstrates that organizations can recruit more talented people, retain them longer, draw out higher quality service, and engage in more rapid innovation when performance goes hand-in-hand with human thriving. While many leaders have disregarded the importance of so-called “soft skills” in favor of hard numbers, a new paradigm of leadership, validated by the latest research, shows that the tradeoff between numbers and people is a false one. Where people thrive, business thrives.
We invite you and other leaders you might wish to include in this circle to join us to expand your capacity for compassion, wisdom, and well-being. We will come together at a beautiful location, Bozburun Yacht Club in Turkey, where there is no access from land and we will have the full site to ourselves. The idea is to be with nature and completely disconnect from our day to day grind in order to focus on our humanity and awakening the humanity of others through our work. We want our peer leaders to feel there could be a different way of ‘being’ in their own body and in their own leadership as part of joining us in this experience.
Corporate executives, organizational leaders and those in influencing roles who want to immerse in the new science of compassion and well-being and explore the strategic value of human-centered leadership to create stakeholder and shareholder value.
