Get introduced to the Refocus Leadership Experience.

Refocus challenges participants to step out of the noise of daily life in order to live and lead mindfully — and transform the way people work to create organizations that are more sustainable, effective, and even profitable.

Here's what the Refocus NYC attendees had to say about our February 2017 event: 

-- "I loved the morning. All of the group breakout sessions were fantastic."

-- "I am most excited to work with my team on how to consider their own wellbeing as part of their leadership roles. I truly believe if they start with their own growth, it will spread to everyone in the department."

-- "Everything was great and the networking was a treat."
