Our team at Bhavana Learning Group has undergone years of rigorous training from a foundation of integral thinking models, philosophy, leadership mastery, and contemplative practices.

We embody a regimen of study and practice to deepen our ontological inquiry into the nature of being by examining our “as-lived” experiences.

Through deep listening and generative language, we develop practices and deliver services to our clients from an interdependent mindset.

As an educator, writer, researcher, and developer of leadership programs and practices, I’ve discovered how seemingly basic concepts of Listening and Learning are fundamental to developing Leadership. Without these expanded capacities, we are left only with what we currently know. In this era of disruptive change and increased complexity, knowing is simply not enough.

The three hardest words for leaders to utter are “I don’t know.” Yet, until we can become comfortable with not knowing, or unlearning, we cannot fully discover or embrace the freedom embedded in the uncertainty that marks this time in our organizational lives.

As co-founder of a charter school in Brooklyn, I discovered first-hand the impact of leadership on cultivating a learning organization for students and staff, parents, and the community. I experienced listening as integral to effective leadership. I bring this commitment to listening as the key source of leadership to my clients, colleagues, and life.

Using innovative “fulfillment structures,” generative language tools, and contemplative practices, I guide high-achieving professionals in upgrading their listening and leadership. Clients expand responsibility and experience greater influence, and leadership presence without packing their calendars or adding more tasks or to-do lists.
