Biography

Jeremy Hunter, PhD is the great-grandson of a sumo wrestler. He serves as the Founding Director of the Executive Mind Leadership Institute as well as Associate Professor of Practice at the Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management.

Since 2003, he has helped leaders develop themselves while retaining their humanity in the face of monumental change and challenge.

He created and teaches The Executive Mind, a series of demanding and transformative executive education programs. They are dedicated to Drucker’s assertion that “You cannot manage other people unless you manage yourself first.” He co-leads the Leading Mindfully Executive Education program at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business.

He has designed and led leadership development programs for a wide variety of organizations, including Fortune 200 aerospace, Fortune 50 banking and finance, accounting, the arts and civic non-profits. Program impacts have led to both positive professional, personal and financial outcomes for participants.

Past participants have worked to create a “culture of calm” resulting in more effective team performance as well as creating better firm-wide solutions. They were better able to focus on their priorities, connect with team members, and focus on larger strategic priorities. They learned to control emotions they previously thought not possible to do. For example, better-managed reactions with a volatile client saved an aerospace executive an estimated $700,000 in unexercised contract clauses. Participants also reported a higher quality of sleep as well as greater peace of mind and enhanced ability to enjoy their lives.

Hunter has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The Economist, The Financial Times, the Los Angeles Times and National Public Radio’s Morning Edition. He has been voted Professor of the Year eight times.

His work is informed by the experience of living day-to-day for 17 years with a potentially terminal illness. When faced with the need for life-saving surgery more than a dozen former students came forward as organ donors.

Dr. Hunter received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, under the direction of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. He also holds a degree in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and in East Asian Studies from Wittenberg University.

He relishes Chinese dumplings and obsesses about modern architecture. He and his wife and son dutifully serve two house cats who live in Los Angeles.

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.
