Join us for the next session of our Noetic Leadership in Action series with author, academic, and intuitive consultant Dr. Helen Stewart.
With an impressive background that includes a position with the United Nations, numerous high-level academic appointments, and postdoctoral research at Harvard University, Dr. Stewart is firmly grounded in a traditional professional framework. Yet since 1995, she has led a rich life as an Intuitive Management Consultant, providing intuitive business information along with traditional management consulting to companies and individuals in the U.S. and abroad.
Noetic Leadership: The Art of Applied Intuition
Friday, August 20, 2021
11:00 am – 12:00pm (Pacific)
Please register even if you can’t attend live and you’ll receive an email with a link to the recording.
In this conversation with CEO Claire Lachance and leadership scholar-practitioner Alan Briskin, Dr. Stewart shares her process of Seven Second Decision Making (SSD), which she describes as a natural blend of reason, experience, and intuition. With SSD, Dr. Stewart demonstrates how we can use intuition for all aspects of business — to support greater productivity, higher morale, lower costs, and better service. Join us to learn techniques for applied intuition, and hear why Dr. Stewart believes the proper use of intuition is a liberal art, not an occult one.
