“There’s more to life than increasing speed.” Gandhi 

As the pace of the modern work environment gets faster, and the pressure increases, the quality of our decision-making is increasingly vital to the success of our teams and businesses. At the same time, more people report feeling depleted, disengaged, or close to burnout. 

  • What’s the impact of this relentless speed on you, your people and your business? 
  • What can we as leaders do to resource ourselves and our people to:  
        • step back from the day-to-day busyness of the workplace 
        • enhance decision making?

Perhaps there is a Better Way? 

“When I slow down, I see twice as much.” Tara Brach
