Simplicity, Leadership and Wisdom – Encore Presentation

February 27th, 2013

This is our final week of encore productions of Business Matters. Next week, we lift off with Business Matters 2.0. Join us then for a new on-air team, great conversations and some surprises.

One of the hangovers from our current national election process is that we are not inspired. We feel that our political systems have let us down, large corporations are only focused on how much money they can extract from their customers and we trust each other less and less.

This week, we go back to basics to understand what we can do to change our malaise. We start with simplifying and finding out what’s essential in our business world and home life. Next we explore ancient wisdom to understand the impact of the Zen tradition on leadership. Finally, we talk with one of the most successful corporate leadership gurus, who shows us the power of inspiring ourselves, those we are in relationship with and the world.

Writer of the amazingly successful blog, zenhabits, Leo points out that his credentials for a simple life don’t come from his formal education or some form of certification. They come from his deliberate choices and the results he experiences.

We all have personal dreams. Perhaps we want to be healthier or want more time with our family or want the freedom of being debt-free. Whatever our dream, it’s achievable, if we remember the example of Leo. All dreams happen one step at a time.
