About the workshop
Welcome to a leadership development workshop with the goal to find the authentic leader you are meant to be to take your leadership skills to the next level. During this week, you will transform and enhance self-awareness and acceptance of the needs, beliefs and motivations that underlie your actions and decisions and that influence your interactions with others. This insight will liberate and develop the potential and power of practicing leadership at a higher level of consciousness.
In order to be focused, calm and balanced in this transition and to ensure sustainable transformation, you will learn how yoga has an immediate and long-term effect to create awareness and change. Yoga contributes to mental and emotional insight and recreation, and promotes balance and stamina in the hormone and nervous system. With slow and controlled exercises, we use the breath as a vital force to improve your physical and mental energy.
This workshop is directed towards women and men that are in leader positions, has a decision-making role, working with human resource, business owners, entrepreneurs, and for those that hold similar responsibility or are on the career path towards such responsibilities. We warmly welcome you to the beautiful and harmonious Villa Dorothea in Orcheta, Spain. In addition to leadership development, yoga and meditation, you can enjoy sunny afternoons at the saltwater pool or on the beach at VillaJoyosa. Three unforgettable vegetarian meals are served daily with delicious fresh juices.
Good leadership begins with self-management. In this role you are expected to achieve high performance with good results in the pursuit of constant improvement. In order to meet these expectations, you must first have insight into your own convictions and understanding of the motivations that underpin your actions and decisions and how you interact with others. This insight can only be revealed by taking a deep dive into yourself to create better self-knowledge. Self-knowledge is achieved by understanding your own constraints and fixed mindset that you once decided to be the truth.
Through lectures and practical oriented teaching, you will learn how your fundamental human needs, belief structures and mindset affect all the small and big actions and choices you take in your daily work-life and in the way you practice your leadership. We focus on themes such as the six human needs, our fundamental belief structure, how to develop a growth mindset and how we can meet others with a greater understanding. Understanding of how to create long-term changes will therefore also be an important topic of the course. With insight into the self, you can improve performance and lead others with greater awareness and attention. A particularly important tool we use to achieve such a metacognition about self is various forms of yoga and meditation that invite to an open the mind and heart.
Yoga and meditation
Science is beginning to experience old wisdom, and today science shows what Yogis always knew: silence, attention, inner reflection and tranquility through yoga practice contribute to better well-being and improved performance in all areas of life. Yoga and meditation gives us the opportunity to go back to the whole more gracefully. Yoga teaches you to stand in contradictions that you often encounter in the leadership role, and most importantly to stand with yourself. Through various yoga exercises you will create a deeper connection and intimacy with yourself and in relationships with others.
Yoga is scientifically proven to reduce stress, calm down nervous system, improve overall health and well-being, as well as boost energy. Areas that become important to take care of in a role that requires a lot of time and attention with expectations of high pace and delivery. Yoga can also improve conditions due to lack of energy, depression, poor body image and low self-esteem. Furthermore, it is proven that yoga improves sleep quality, improves mood, improves sex life and modulates stress response. Yoga keeps you flexible, in both your mind and body, and this can allow you to be more open and less judgmental to yourself and others.
