Awareness is foundational to intentional leadership and results
Drawing on cultural anthropology, positive psychology, and mindfulness, we empower individuals to deepen skills through self-awareness and observation to become better leaders.
We guide leaders through developing five key components of intentional leadership.
A leader in the industry
We believe that a leader must be in the in the right mindset before they can effectively set meaningful goals and commit fully to professional development or self-improvement.
Our work emphasizes mindful awareness first and foremost, followed by honing observation and listening skills in service of more effectively supporting teams.
We have guided hundreds of leaders at some of the largest organizations across the world to shift their mindsets and use mindfulness to improve leadership skills and team performance.
