    About the Speaker

    Pandit Dasa is a Mindful Leadership Expert, author and motivational keynote speaker. His inspirational speeches aim to create a more mindful workplace culture which increases productivity and improves retention. He encourages leadership and co-workers to appreciate and celebrate the success and contributions of others. This attitude fosters trust, enhances teamwork and greatly impacts employee performance. He emphasizes the importance of leading without ego and highlights the importance of cultivating self-awareness and personal growth and development.

    Pandit captures the audience's attention by sharing his journey on how and why he spent 15 years living as a monk in New York City, the incredible life and leadership lessons he learned from that experience and why he's no longer a monk. His story is chronicled in his book, Urban Monk. Some key messages the audience will take away are:

    • Understanding how our mind, thoughts and emotions impact our reactions and behavior.
    • Tools for managing one's emotions and staying calm and collected before pressing the "send" button.
    • The value of consistently appreciating our colleagues.
    • Attendees will be encouraged to lead by example by setting a proper leadership model.
    • Learn breathing and focusing techniques that can reduce stress, improve productivity and boost emotional intelligence.

    Based on his most recent book Leading with Emotional Courage: How to Have Hard Conversations, Create Accountability, and Inspire Action on Your Most Important Work, bestselling author Peter Bregman unlocks the secrets of highly successful leaders – no matter their role or level in the hierarchy – and pinpoints the missing ingredient that makes all the difference: emotional courage.

    Emotional courage distinguishes powerful leaders from weak ones. It means speaking up when others are silent and remaining steadfast, grounded and measured in the face of uncertainty. It means responding productively to political opposition—maybe even bad-faith backstabbing—without getting sidetracked, distracted or losing your focus.

    In this engaging and interactive talk, Peter shows audiences:

    • Why emotional courage is important, and examples of its power
    • Why the best leaders have confidence in themselves, the ability to connect with others, and commitment to a purpose – and how emotional courage is the key to unlocking all of those factors
    • What it feels like—experientially through fun and effective exercises—to have emotional courage.
    • How to use emotional courage to initiate hard conversations, create accountability, and inspire focused action on your most important work.

    This speech is a guide for becoming a great leader. A leader who has the power to speak with courage to align teams, inspire action, and achieve stellar results.

    About the Speaker

    Peter Bregman writes, coaches, and teaches, mostly about leadership. He is the CEO of Bregman Partners, a company that helps successful people close their leadership gaps, grow as leaders, and inspire the people around them to get great results. Best-selling author of 18 Minutes, his most recent book is Leading with Emotional Courage. He is also the host of the Bregman Leadership Podcast.
