Teaching topics

 

We prefer to create a Customized Program for you.
But to give you a glimpse of possible topics for your teaching, here are some examples.

The Power of Change

Mostly we see change as a problem, not as an opportunity. But in fact, change is very powerful; it has the potential to create something new. The biggest mistake we can make is thinking that we do not need change, because change is part of life.

This also explains why we have an economic crisis. All of our systems are so solid and fixed; they do not make room for change. Because we make these systems so fixed, they cease to work because they cannot adapt to the changes that occur. Since change is always there, the systems do not work anymore.

In this seminar, Tulku Lobsang teaches us the power of change. Learn insights and wisdom regarding how you can leverage change, as well as techniques to use this opportunity to your greatest advantage.

Authentic Leadership

One of the least spoken of skills of a good leader is having self-knowledge. Knowing oneself is one of the most valuable skills a leader can have. Having self-knowledge means that you know what your talents are, and what you have to work on or learn. It also means that you are open to receiving answers when you don’t know something and that you can admit you were wrong when you make a mistake. The biggest pitfall of most leaders is that they think they need to know everything and have all the answers. They may think that they appear weak when they show their limits or faults to others. In fact, this is counterproductive. Whether you admit them or not, those around you see them anyway. If you try to hide your limits, others will have the perception that either you do not know yourself or that you do not have integrity.

Self-knowledge is the basis for every successful leader. Such leaders are authentic. Being authentic means that you can show your employees who you really are and what you really know. This is how you earn respect.

Renewing Your Influence

In the West, leadership means making goals, planning and execution. We also go out of our way to make our employees behave the way that we want. Unfortunately, this translates into a lot of frustration and stress, not only for the leaders, but for everyone in the workplace. Soon we become completely disillusioned with our plans and goals.

Buddhist leadership is effective because of its strong, grounded knowledge of how the human mind works. In the West, we always project onto the other, wanting them to change their ways, but in Buddhism we look to ourselves to see what needs to change. When we try to change others, we not only lose our own sense of self, but in that moment we lose our leadership as well. A good leader should know how to listen to others and how to change himself or herself. Through listening to others and changing oneself, one can better guide other people. Then, the other people are also motivated to change.

Tools

 

Not only do we offer wisdom, new perspectives and game-changing principles, but we also offer tools for these principles to really take root. These are the practical tools. The following practices embody the new knowledge you receive in a training. In this way, the wisdom will continue to grow, evolve and deepen, long after Tulku Lobsang’s presentation.

Mindfulness Practices

Mindfulness is one solution for all problems. When you develop mindfulness, all aspects of your life improve—your focus, effectiveness, relationships, health and overall enjoyment. Developing mindfulness means developing your capacity to maintain a single focus. This happens when we get comfortable with being in a calm and quiet environment. With practice, distractions will no longer distract, and the scattered mind will be a thing of the past. When there is mindfulness, you work more effectively, improve time management, and better cope with stress.

Lu Jong: Tibetan Healing Yoga

These highly effective movements can be done anywhere in just 12 minutes. They open and stretch the spine, which is our body’s battery. After doing these movements, you will feel simultaneously energized and calm. So whenever you’re feeling tired or mentally stuck, do these movements and you will gain a new level of focus and clarity.

Tsa Lung: Breathing Exercises

Our breath is the bridge to our mind. By learning to control and deepen the breath we learn to control the mind. Participants will learn simple techniques to increase the oxygen in the blood that supplies the brain. This is the way to get a quick, responsive mind and gain more energy. Exercises for stress reduction will also be taught.

Tog Chöd: The Wisdom Sword

This practice is all about self-confidence and empowerment. When you swing the sword you face your worst enemy—your own fears and expectations. Learn to tap into a deep inner strength that only comes from being completely focused. Here, in the present moment, you are empowered to change old patterns of thought. With this practice you will become more focused and alert.

Integration

 

Upon request, we can schedule a follow-up visit by a Western Business Coach trained by Tulku Lobsang. This follow-up can be a refresher of the physical practices, or assistance with implementing the knowledge principles, or a deeper investigation into the issues the company may be facing. It can be added with other trainings such as time-management, 360° leadership analysis, and many other topics that can bring performance to a higher level.  These follow-ups can be conducted either one-on-one or in group sessions, as requested.
