Pathways to Change
A signature program for mindful leadership development
Pathways to Change (PTC) translates timeless wisdom and scientific knowledge into a unique and integrative approach to leadership development and well-being.
PTC’s 5-part framework incorporates neuroscience, mindfulness, coaching and mind-body principles. PTC programming meets many learning styles using visuals, workbooks, guided practices and interactive exercises.
With PTC, organizations invest not only in innovation, but also in the well-being and growth of its people.
People and teams need a new way of leadership to support and sustain them through the challenges of an increasingly volatile and uncertain world.
Mindful leadership adopts an inside-out approach to development, helping leaders and staff access leadership capacities such as greater awareness, self-regulation, adaptability, authenticity, connection and purpose.
The world is calling for change. We can guide it in a more humane direction by growing mindful leadership within the organizations that are working for that change.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
