The focus of the 3.5-day program is Best Practices for achieving both business and personal success in today’s business climate.

Topics include:

  • What today’s painful economic realities mean to your future.
  • What you must do to succeed in today’s business climate.
  • What you won’t (and can’t) learn in Business School – and why.
  • Career reversal: the best thing that’s ever happened to you.
  • How inner work results in improved business performance.
  • Beyond the “triple bottom line” to superior business metrics.
  • Your shadow: what prevents you from achieving worldly success.
  • Focus energy and attention with discipline, discernment, & openness.

Are you ready to engage in the best practices that will multiply your authentic power and business results?

  • A successful warrior possesses superior discipline to manifest his or her intended outcomes. To triumph in their lifelong journey, warriors must be crystal clear about their values, goals and methodologies.
  • A monk will retreat from time to time to develop his or her virtues, such as concentration, compassion, and inner peace. Shaolin Monks, highly disciplined in both martial arts and spiritual practice, bring intense focus to their spirituality and to their physical training.
  • Businessmen and women today must be similarly disciplined to achieve optimal effectiveness in the business arts.

  • Acquiring information from a variety of sources and perspectives;
  • Engaging in daily practices that integrate your mind, body and spirit;
