A breakfast seminar on achieving self-mastery in disruptive times

We are living in a time of disruption across business, politics, and culture. Research by Aon Hewitt shows that disruptive change causes disengagement amongst employees to rise by 61%, which has a direct effect on profit margins. That's why on June 25th at Sadler's Wells theatre, we invited guests to discuss how chaos can arise when change happens faster than we can adapt to it. 

“Change has a profound impact on our inner worlds. It requires us to consciously work against our survival instincts of fight, flight and paralysis. Only creative relationships, within ourselves and with others, allows us to robustly navigate the unknown future. The arts often show us the way.” 
– Carol Leader

We asked our audience: how can you use self-mastery to steer through the chaos? Based on our 30 years of experience, our breakfast seminar aimed to provide fresh clarity in the storm. When faced with disruption, we discovered how you can:

This was the fifth seminar in Maynard Leigh's Free the Talent campaign: an experiential event series which attendees of previous seminars have called “profound” and “thought-provoking”. Engaging in techniques from the performing arts that provide perception in a chaotic business environment, practising using reflection to help see situations accurately, so you create positive responses, mobilising your imagination to create new organisational choices, and accessing your volition to stimulate action.
