Stephen Josephs has been actively studying mind-body disciplines for 45 years (yoga, aikido, tai chi, qigong, meditation) as well as psychology and transformational methods and applied all he’s learned to leadership development – for people to make better decisions, stay clear in the midst of conflict, and recruit optimal states for performance in any situation. He has been interested in 3 broad topics: 1) What accounts for superior performance? 2) What principles are at work when we easily learn and change? 3) How do we become wise? His aim is to have people claim vitality and get more out of life at work, and have it bring out the best in us, develop us, and at the end of a career look back knowing we made the world a better place and became wiser in the process.
