Zen Leader 2


Strained relationships, playing too small, defensiveness and reactivity:
they all have common roots in basic human needs and fears.
Get to the root in yourself and you lead fearlessly and strengthen those around you. 

What will you learn?

  • How to face into a self-limiting fear and increasingly free yourself
  • How to flip from useless outward judgments to productively working inner triggers
  • How habits work and can be reworked
  • How to leverage the neuroscience of “I” and “we”
  • How trauma distorts the present
  • How to take away fear
  • How each of the energy patterns gets into conflict and ways to move forward
  • How unfillable holes happen and what to do about them
  • How to lift and empower others
  • How to strengthen an important relationship in your life

“This is the best leadership program I have ever been involved with and participated in. It will give you tools and practices you won’t find anywhere else.”

Kate Watters
Executive Director, Crude Accountability

What if I register and then something comes up and I can’t attend the program?

We’ll be glad to roll your registration forward to a future offering of the program at the same price.

What if I miss part of the program?

Part of what makes our programs so strong is the sense of community in the cohort, so we encourage you to attend all sessions live.  If you have to miss 1-2 hours, we’ll help you get caught up. If you have to miss more than that, we’ll suggest rolling your registration forward to the next offering.

Do I have to have taken Zen Leader 1 first?

You’ll want to have taken one of the foundational courses first (i.e., Zen Leader 1, HEAL1,  or Resonate) or have equivalent experience so you’re familiar with basics that we build on in this session.  Ask us if you have any questions about your readiness.

Can I take Zen Leader 3 before Zen Leader 2?

While the sessions have a natural order to them, if it works better for your schedule to take ZL3 before ZL2, go ahead and do that, you won’t be lost.

What if I can’t afford the program?

If you’re committed to training with us, we’d like to try to make it possible for you.  We have a limited number of partial scholarships available to our programs. If you’d like to apply for one, here is an application.

Can my whole team attend?

Absolutely, in fact, it’s easier to integrate the program’s learnings in your workplace when multiple people or a team train together. Contact us for group discounts or if you would like to bring a tailored version of the program to your organization.
