Leader as Healer
In this episode, host Windy and Nicholas Janni, theater director turned coaching and leadership thought leader, discuss his book, "Leader as Healer." In his book, Janni pushes back against the left-brain dominance in today’s culture and seeks to re-introduce our often dismissed capacities for feeling, sensation, mindfulness and intuition. Their conversation will explore how these qualities are essential in facing the challenges of our times.
Nicholas Janni has devoted his life to the study of human potential. Over the last 20 years he has gained an international reputation for his transformational coaching and leadership development seminars. He works with organisations, NGO’s and senior leaders worldwide and teaches at the IMD Business School in Switzerland. He bridges the worlds of creative, personal, spiritual and professional development in a uniquely powerful, relevant and accessible way.
In his first career he was a theatre director. He taught acting at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and directed his own theatre company. He has spent over 30 years researching the theory and the practice of ‘the zone’ of peak performance in art, life and work, and has studied and practiced multiple mind/body disciplines.
He co-founded the arts-based consultancy Olivier Mythodrama in 2001, and teaches at the IMD Business School in Lausanne, and the University of Oxford Said Business School.
His book “Leader as Healer, a new paradigm for 21st century leadership” was published in March 2022.
