Introduction to
Conscious Leadership

A High-Level View of Transforming Leaders & Organizational Culture

a live interactive Instructor-Led Workshop
series of six 75-min sessions

part of the Conscious Leader Development programs at Basileia LLC

"There are two fundamental ways to lead:
through FEAR or through TRUST.
One makes people grow smaller.
The other invites people to grow larger.
The mindset and the skills are radically different.

How do you want to lead?"

— Gregg Kendrick

In this 6-part series, participants are introduced to the foundations of Conscious Leadership — leading through trust rather than fear, leading through power-with the people you are leading rather than power-over them.

Each of these sessions highlights a core facet of Conscious Leadership, and collectively they provide a pre-requisite foundation that prepares you to delve more deeply in learning specific skill sets when you are ready.
