Feel free to reach out to our team for more information.

What exactly is the Awakening Conscious Leadership Experience (ACLE)?

ACLE is a transformative 3-day immersion designed to empower current and aspiring leaders. By integrating mindfulness and neuroscience, this experience will enhance your ability to lead from within. ACLE is perfect for individuals committed to personal growth, expanding influence, and fostering a positive impact on humanity.

Who should attend ACLE?

The ACLE is ideal for those passionate about living consciously, leveraging inner wisdom to lead, and instilling positivity in group dynamics. It’s not suited for individuals resistant to personal transformation or those who prefer to remain in the limelight rather than facilitating collective success.

What is the structure of ACLE’s leadership experience?

ACLE covers a comprehensive curriculum to stimulate the minds and souls of budding and seasoned leaders alike. This leadership training experience is broken down into the following phases:

Starting within: Begin with building self-awareness and resilience. This core module focuses on identifying stress responses and cultivating the means to manage stress less reactively. Participants learn to foster resilience, enabling them to face leadership challenges with greater poise and mindfulness.

Exploring science: Gain insight into how our brain works affect leadership and interpersonal relationships. This part of the course reveals how different mental states can impact decision-making and collaboration. Leaders are equipped with the knowledge to leverage the brain science as a starting point to transform their leadership abilities (at work and home).

Learning practices: Incorporate over 15 mindfulness practices to transform your leadership approach. These practices are designed to enhance presence, emotional maturity, and intentional decision-making, allowing for a more reflective and responsive leadership style.

Elevating interactions: This module teaches the art of generative questioning and how to establish psychological safety within teams. It highlights the power of dialogue in unlocking team potential and encourages the creation of an environment where innovation thrives through open and honest communication.

Influencing at scale: Adapt to the demands of modern leadership, influencing at scale through a new paradigm that emphasizes growth, change, and collective intelligence. This final aspect redefines leadership as a collaborative and facilitative endeavor, inspiring a vision that propels organizations forward.

What does each day of ACLE involve?

A typical ACLE day includes optional social connections, immersive training sessions interspersed with breaks, and various interactive activities. The schedule is crafted to facilitate deep learning and connection among participants.

What outcomes can I expect from participating in ACLE?

Expect to emerge with a profound understanding of conscious leadership, equipped with practical mindfulness practices, and ready to foster environments that encourage psychological safety and collective intelligence.

What if I’m new to facilitation or leadership?

ACLE is designed to be inclusive, welcoming participants at any stage of their leadership journey. Whether you’re just starting or looking to refine your approach, ACLE offers valuable insights and tools.

What if ACLE doesn’t meet my expectations?

We stand by the value of our program with a No Risk Promise. If you don’t find the experience worthwhile after completing it, we offer a partial or full refund, honoring our commitment to your satisfaction.
