Being creative and successful in business and your personal lives requires that you be responsive and flexible as you move beyond your comfort zones.
Though it may seem paradoxical, all real change and creativity begins by facing and understanding the reality of your current situation.
Learning to see and respond with greater clarity is where the path toward change and growth begins.
What is that you are really doing? What are you doing that is extraneous? How can you bring more ease to and at the same time enliven your work and personal activities?
Learn how slowing down and looking deeply can lead to greater business success and personal satisfaction. Learn key practices that can help you:
Be flexible and responsive in the midst of change
Act with calm in the midst of intense activity
Relax in the midst of exertion
Gain clarity and insight in the midst of difficulty and competing demands
Increase creativity and problem-solving skills
Improve listening and communication skills
Improve focus and concentration
Increase work satisfaction
Lead and build teams
