About the course

Unlock your power to lead with clarity, authenticity and effectiveness

"We take care of the future best by taking care of the present now.” ― Jon Kabat-Zinn As a leader, how can you stay focused on what’s important when there are so many demands for your immediate attention? Ever-changing market conditions, gadget overload, conflicting information and “emergencies” of all kinds can hurt your ability to think with clarity and precision.
