Enlightened Leadership for the New World of Work

Enlightened Leadership for the New World of Work

Warrensville Heights, OH

Our world of work has evolved, but leadership approaches have failed to keep pace. Workers are experiencing unprecedented professional challenges, and their unspoken needs are threatening their performance, intent to stay, and well-being. Leadership is well positioned to build a bridge between the worker and the work, but a successful approach requires us to move beyond our outdated assumptions and practices.  Matt’s simple-yet-powerful framework integrates Western leadership and Eastern philosophy to produce a novel, human-centric roadmap for individuals, teams, and organizations. His work is grounded in modern psychological science and inspired by ancient contemplative practice.  Workshop participants are rewarded with expanded awareness, hands-on practice, and a clear path for continued growth and development.

Matt Poepsel, Ph.D. will deliver an interactive workshop session based on his book, Expand the Circle: Enlightened Leadership for the New World of Work. HR leaders are highly encouraged to invite their respective CEO/COO or other executive to join them for this session! The experience will engage these organizational teams, as well as independent consultants and solo attendees. 

The session includes a free copy of Matt’s book for everyone attending.
