Add the coaching option?

Make your journey even more impactful with the assist of a Zen Leadership coach.

Why? You’re seeing in new ways as you train in Zen Leadership. You’re trying new practices, building new habits, and occasionally feeling uncomfortable, anxious and like you’re failing – in other words you’re learning! There’s nothing like the accountability, support, personal attention, and insight that emerge through one-on-one coaching to help you stick to desired practices, overcome rough spots, and reach your goals.

Our Zen leadership coaches embody a depth of wisdom and experience that comes from years of meditation in addition to their leadership, industry, and coaching experience.

Add the coaching option (paid for separately) and accompany your journey with 3-6 sessions with one of our Zen Leadership coaches.
