Awakening Inner Presence A Masterclass In Boosting Executive Performance


In the volatile landscape of modern leadership, the stakes are high and  the room for error is low. As new technologies like Gen AI transform the game, traditional methods of boosting performance can often seem like a square peg in a round hole. But here’s the good news: within each leader lies a dormant reservoir of wisdom, waiting to be activated. This workshop offers you a roadmap to awaken your Inner Presence, a master key to elevate your authenticity, creativity, and decision clarity.


This isn’t just a workshop; it’s a transformative expedition. Over three days, you will:

  • Navigate the contours of your inner self.
  • Grasp the symbiotic relationship between emotional and rational faculties.
  • Learn techniques for enhanced Decision-making, Creativity, and Interpersonal skills.
  • Experience Inner Presence and how it impacts your gravitas and executive presence.

This workshop synthesizes four decades of interdisciplinary experience and research by a group of CxO coaches, psychologists, philosophers, artists, academic researchers, and engineers. Get ready for an exploration that goes beyond the boardroom, and gain tools for a more enriched life and work paradigm.

  • Inner Enablers & Barriers: Decode the subconscious elements driving your actions and decisions.
