Sensei in the C Suite THE SENSEI LEADER

Sensei in the C Suite THE SENSEI LEADER

"The world is changing and leaders must change with it. The days of "command and control" are over. People are demanding leaders who are emotionally intelligent and put the priorities of the people they serve above selfish ends.

We call these "human-centric" leaders––and our movement is dedicated to developing, cultivating and supporting these leaders. Leaders are people who transform themselves through their experiences, opportunities and challenges to become the people others count on for inspiration, guidance and action.

I'm a former drug addict and two-time college dropout. I used to think that was a miserable resume for someone who trains leaders to be better people. I now know that it is the perfect resume! Here's why... Leaders are made, not born. I'll go a little further, leaders are transformed. I transformed myself from a loser to a leader––from a drug abuser to a Black Belt, and later to Sensei. Over 25 years of teaching I helped hundreds of others transform themselves into Black Belts, and thousands more discover their best selves."
