Program Description

Master the most valuable cutting-edge skill needed in business today. Increase your efficacy as a leader, and hone you ability to foster inspired professional relationships by developing the skill of mindsight—a term coined by Daniel J. Siegel to describe the ability to perceive the workings of one’s own mind and the minds of others.

Mindsight is the basis of emotional intelligence, an essential component of effective leadership. It involves the capacity for empathy, to make maps of the inner world of oneself and others, and to see from different perspectives.

Through enlightening presentations, engaging experiential exercises, and group discussion, you will learn to:

  • Harness the powers of insight and empathy and cultivate those qualities in the workplace
  • Increase morale, productivity, and innovation
  • Inspire dedication and the spirit of collaboration
  • Change the structure of your brain to increase social and emotional intelligence.

The winning combination of Dan’s explanation of brain science and Caroline’s experience in a variety of business settings—from corporate law firm practice to founding a startup to running a small business—make this a unique opportunity to effectively sharpen your leadership skills, create harmony in work and personal relationships, and focus attention on desired outcomes.
