Naropa Authentic Leadership Program

Become the leader the world needs now.

Imagine your day if your work aligned with your purpose. If you could meet stress gracefully. And if you could address challenges with humor and creativity?

Imagine if you could inspire others to do likewise?

Wouldn’t this be a great time to become the leader the world desperately needs now?

Join the mindful leadership revolution.

School districts. Hospitals. Technology companies. Graduate business schools. Nonprofits. Sports teams.

These are just some of the organizations incorporating mindfulness into their training programs.

Market pressures, passionless workplaces, and relentless “busy-ness” are reasons leaders and organizational visionaries are seeking to transform themselves—and in turn transform their workplaces.

Naropa University’s Authentic Leadership Program offers an in-depth 16-week curriculum in mindfulness, communication development, and leadership training to help you acquire the equanimity, skills, and vision to lead from your true self.

Dare to become the kind of leader you know you can be. Become part of Naropa’s Authentic Leadership community.
