Science of Self (SoS3) - Building a Leadership Foundation


Cultivate the Inner Virtue that Will Help You Multiply Your Impact and Build a Loyal Following

We are not typically invited to practice the quality of love in the workplace.  And yet, as this class shows, great leaders throughout history have actively used the power of love to inspire and energize their people.   Research is providing growing evidence that the practice of compassion, kindness, selflessness, forgiveness and service drives success in relationships, work, health and our pursuit of happiness.  

In contrast to the conventional view of love as something that is experienced within one’s circle of friends and family, this class invites you to approach love in a way that has a positive effect on every relationship and interaction in your personal and professional life.  You will get tools to help you put this new understanding of love into practice, and will emerge inspired and motivated to more actively pursue the path of love in life and leadership, with a set of tools to guide your journey.

One question that has bedeviled humanity since ancient times is whether or not we should forgive those who have wronged us.  Beyond its broader focus on love, Leading from the Heart helps you understand the winner’s path to forgiveness as revealed by science and studies of great leaders from history.
