Tell us about your company.

We design/plan/organize leadership development programs/seminars.

In partnership with The Leader Mill, LLC, our recent book/program provides an innovative framework in leadership development (The Yogi Leader: Discovering the Seven Elements of Leading with Mind, Body,& Heart). 

The Yogi Leader is really about discovering who we are as people… and more importantly who we are as leaders. It bridges well-known leadership theories to yoga, and mindfulness. The Yogi Leader follows the stories of seven different leaders, each with their own set of problems and issues to deal with in their leadership practice. The Seven Elements of Leadership are seven skills, characteristics, talents, or abilities that a leader needs to energize in order to be an incredible leader.

“When we fall into the trap of thinking about making a difference on a large scale, we often not follow through. Too much to take on. More than we can handle. The giant ripple that flows through the entire lake begins with one single tiny pebble that is thrown.”
