Today’s fundamental questions of wealth and poverty and the ongoing tectonic changes in the world require a radically new, integrative mindset and heightened strategic awareness. We cannot tackle the challenges we face individually and as humankind unless we drastically improve our decision-making and leadership capabilities.
Mindfulness-based Strategic Awareness Training – MBSAT is designed to strengthen and systematically cultivate these abilities. It is based on the latest findings in neuroscience and moulded into a format that allows active people to include the training practices in their daily lives.
The lecture will provide an introduction to the MBSAT training methodology and its neuroscientific foundations and let participants experience a fresh approach to practice mindfulness for improving decision-making.
