Todays podcast is a little different. It is longer ☺️and is a recording of a live Webinar which was held by Inner Leadership in conjunction with 1880 Club here in Singapore. It includes a guided meditation as well as a discussion between Ng Yi Xian and Navin Amarasuriya on their meditative practices and journeys. 

Description: What does it mean to look within in the workplace? What are the tools that inspire deeper connections? Explore how meditation and other contemplative approaches can be applied in a Singaporean workplace. Each speaker has his own mindfulness practice and is exploring ways of sharing it with their organisation.

Hi All
 
In today’s podcast I have had the great pleasure of talking to Dr Julia Kim the Program Director of the Gross National Happiness Centre in Bhutan.
 
Our time was limited so hopefully this is the first of many chats I will have with Dr Kim. We spoke about ‘the Virus’ but also the lessons businesses can learn from the GNH approach especially those focused on a more holistic approach to stakeholder management.
 
Below are some links to Dr. Julia’s profile and also to more information on Wellbeing and Gross National Happiness.

This is the second interview in our Podcast Series. 

Dan Norton has been an England Rugby player for the last 11 years. He holds the world record for the number of try's scored, Olympic Silver medalist and allegedly faster than Usain Bolt over 20m. Dan talks to me about how he prepares and how mental strength can be the difference between winning and losing on the playing field. In future interviews I will explore with Dan how he applies what he has learnt on the sports field to living his life.

Inner Leadership is a joint project initiated by two people: Kathy Lim Sheehy and Chade-Meng Tan, with the vision of bringing mindfulness and meditation to modern leaders in Asia.

Through open dialogues, presentations and conversations about mindfulness and meditation, we hope to cultivate enlightened leaders who perceive leadership in terms of other people rather than themselves, encouraging them to focus on their responsibility to others rather than on exercising personal power, and enriching their work and relationships in the process. A core way we hope to do so is by educating people about “selfless attention”, which enables one to focus on others rather than one’s own ego, and allows for a clearer perception of the world around oneself.

This summit marks the beginning of our journey to bring mindfulness to leaders all across Asia. We’ve invited thought leaders such as Barry Kerzin, Barbara Fredrickson, Daniel Cordaro, Ng Kok Song, and Greg and Crystal Lim-Lange to share their personal journeys in relation to mindfulness, and the philosophies that make them effective in their work and everyday lives.
