Introduction to Conscious Leadership

We're thrilled to welcome you to this experience with us!

We’ll meet weekly on Zoom in an interactive classroom for four weeks. We'll guide you through the exploration and practice of The 4 Questions of Conscious Leadership. Each week we’ll introduce the question of the week, share experiential exercises, answer your questions. You'll receive practices to experiment with between classes.
