Emotional Intelligence ~ Mindful Leadership

Entrepreneurs are in a class of their own. They have grit and moxy and a determination to succeed. They work long hours and hold fast to their dream of success no matter what it takes and it takes a lot. Starting up a new company is one of the most important building blocks of our economy and our culture. It is not an accident that 500 Fortune companies such as Google, G.E., American Express, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, E Bay, Intel, Nike, LinkedIn, General mills, Aetna, Etsy and many more smaller companies implemented mindfulness programs for their leaders and employees.

The research is indisputable:

Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders that join business development groups that include mindfulness practices improve their business, make better decisions and impact their bottom line."Mindfulness enables leaders to be fully present, aware of themselves and their impact on other people, and sensitive to their actions to stressful situations"

Who should take this class?

Andrei Pitut is a mindfulness meditation teacher who has lead corporate meditation classes throughout New York City. His first interaction with meditation 15 years ago was not how it's described in books and articles: relaxing with thoughts passing by like clouds or streams of consciousness. It was a frustrated effort with a lot of mind-wandering. He found that most people who start on this path have a similar experience and that leaves them exasperated and disenchanted.
His classes offer a step-by-step, pragmatic approach that helped many people start their own meditation practice. He draws teachings from the Dharma, secular books on neuroscience, and popular mindfulness programs (like MBSR and Google's Search Inside Yourself).
Andrei holds the position of executive director at Mindful Harlem.
