In this unprecedented moment, it’s time to unlearn leadership as you’ve always known it and relearn how to be human. It’s time to adopt a new leadership playbook.

The Inner Playbook

The world has shifted, and nothing will go back to the way it was. A new future awaits. Ahead lies an opportunity to reshape ourselves, our leadership and our organizations into something very different.

But, how do leaders move forward with all that has been irreversibly changed?

Leadership for this moment requires a new playbook. And, this playbook starts inside, with the mind. When you learn how your mind works, and how to rewire it for agility, compassion, courage and openness, you can reimagine the future and the possibilities.

The Inner Playbook program doesn’t tell you how to lead or train you to act in certain ways. The program helps you to unlock new leadership from within. The program helps you to:

  • Abandon traditional managerial styles and to choose to be a more human and compassionate leader;
  • Let go of attachments to the past and to look at the new reality with fresh eyes and a beginner’s mind;
  • Combat perfectionism and self-criticism through self-compassion;
  • Build a mind that is open, balanced, compassionate, and courageous.

Our Programs

Compassionate leadership may be just the antidote to a world split open. It improves collaboration, deepens trust, and builds a sense of stability. But, it’s not easy. Leaders must skillfully balance the need to do hard things with support for the health and well-being of their people.
