The most effective leaders -- and their executive coaches -- consider more than just what’s happening now. They also project into the future to anticipate how actions ripple through space, across ever-expanding scales of self, team, organization, and outward through the wider ecosystem. They think and act strategically to make decisions that pay off in the long-run. 

To do this well, a high level of self-awareness and personal insight is essential. Like an instrument that can be ever more finely tuned, self-awareness must be cultivated if the leader hopes to be agile and effective. Without it, a leader’s capacity to accurately assess themselves, the situation, and their options for action is suboptimal. 

In this session, coaches will examine a series of practical frameworks that will help them and the leaders they coach, be more effective across scales of space (self, team, organization, community, ecosystem) and time (today, the next 3 months, the next 3 years, and beyond).

A key component of this work includes gaining a deeper understanding of how the human nervous system works, and how it affects your ability to perceive options and take action. 

Your guides have decades of experience assisting hundreds of leaders to take effective action in increasingly disruptive contexts. Join us for a fun, stimulating, provocative, and practical exploration at the leading edge of what leaders need today. 

  1. Three techniques to increase mindfulness and self-awareness in the moment, leading to more effective choices and actions.
  2. Identify different emotional zones, based on neuroscience, and how they shut down self-awareness and restrict effective decision-making, and three techniques to shift to wise, informed decisions and actions.
  3. Different approaches to help leaders stay in a high-performance learning zone without being overly stressed.
