Making a living, building a business, competing to win – leading in our modern day workplace can often be an exhilarating enterprise full of creativity, energy and fun. Yet, being a leader in such a fast-‐paced world can, at times, be equally distressing and filled with unknowns. And as we seek to lead our businesses, organizations and teams many of us are exploring contemplative disciplines like yoga, Tai Chi and meditation as cutting edge leadership tools. Michael and Jerry will adress such questions as:
