At the July 6 Wanderlust Speakeasy, Naropa University has assembled a distinguished series of thought leaders to present on some of the most pressing problems for today’s leaders. These include:

  • Diane Musho Hamilton, “Turn into the Skid: New Conflict Skills for Leaders.”
  • Jerry Colonna, “Being Fierce: The Five Challenges of Leadership.”
  • Susan Skjei, “Joining Head, Heart and Hands: The Power of Authentic Leadership at Work.”

At the Wanderlust Speakeasy, Diane will present five core messages from her first book, Everything Is Workable: A Zen Approach to Conflict Resolution, Diane distills years of experience as a professional mediator and a meditator into an empowering skill set for engaging and resolving conflict with wisdom and compassion.

Diane, who is a long-time practitioner of meditation, and a Zen priest says, “In spite of practicing meditation, mindfulness, or other spiritual disciplines, most people regularly experience conflict in their lives – and have to deal with it.”

She suggests that for real success in both professional and personal life, everyone needs to develop conflict resolution skills and cultivate social intelligence through practice and awareness.

Everything Is Workable: A Zen Approach to Conflict Resolution (Shambhala Publications) is an exploration of conflict resolution as an evolving life and spiritual practice.

Naropa University’s Authentic Leadership Program is a national model for personal and professional transformation, and draws upon the disciplines of contemplative practice, neuroscience, organizational learning, and complexity science. The goal of authentic leadership is to increase a leader’s capacity – regardless of the sector or industry – for clarity, compassion, and performance at work and in life.

“Wanderlust gathers people around mindful living, and our events are designed to inspire and educate people looking to live well and be well,” said Jeff Krasno, co-founder of Wanderlust.
