About This Class

With the cascade of new technologies and social changes, we are constantly challenged to spark creativity, drive innovation, and ensure sustainability. What are the remedies? How do we work with ourselves and others? The newest problems of the world find solutions in the oldest timeless practices like mindfulness, authenticity, and devotion- because everything connects.


Connectivity is a sense of journey, to the sense of purpose--it is an individual, lonely pursuit and a collective, companionable one at the same time. Our individual, interpersonal, and organizational working lives all interconnect. By examining these connections, we learn new ways to create, innovate, adapt, and lead.


What You'll Learn

This class will be part philosophy, part business, and part history. We'll cover:

  • Connecting with Who We Are. Learn how understanding leads to authenticity, mindfulness cultivates authenticity, and how devotion is mindfulness, mindfulness is devotion.
  • Inspiring and Leading Inside and Outside of our Organizations. How to give people freedom and structure as well as how to curate talent.
  • Generating Ideas, Grounded Decisions, and Long-Lasting Value. How to promote ideas through curiosity, improve decisions by mapping them, and creating value over the long term.


By the time you're done with this class, you'll have created a three-part personal and professional roadmap with 9 essential principles to connect the dots. This isn’t just a quick fix for your next financial quarter, or a business plan; this is how you succeed in the long run. It is a systemization of your art, science, business, and spirituality.
