You will learn how to cultivate personal and team well-being as a way to create exceptional business value.

Quantum Leadership Retreat

An experiential workshop designed for business executives, nongovernmental advocates and those committed to creating a world in which people flourish, organizations prosper, and nature thrives. The goal of the Retreat is to change who you are at a deep intuitive level, combining embodied-experiential learning with analytic-cognitive skill development. Experience a range of mindfulness practices accompanied by the leadership tools essential to increasing creativity, engagement and team collaboration. Amplify your ability to inspire people and produce lasting change in complex environments.

The Quantum Leadership Retreat is different from other Executive Development programs with its unique emphasis on who you are being rather than only what you are doing.

Quantum Leadership is the subject of a new practice-oriented book by businessman Frederick Tsao and Professor Chris Laszlo published by Stanford University Press in 2019. Based on decades of experience and extensive field research in China, the U.S., and Europe, the Retreat gives you the tools, case studies and practices you need to succeed.

The most exciting aspect of this Retreat is building the capabilities to flourish at every level: personal, team, organizational and the world. It is aimed at those who want to create business value and make a positive impact on the world by living their most fulfilling and flourishing selves.

Most executive programs focus only on technical competency development through conceptual learning. This experiential workshop strengthens the direct-intuitive skills needed to evolve with creativity and resilience in the face of great change. The purpose of organizations is shifted to flourishing as participants experience their lives as relational. You will discover a new science-based paradigm grounded in quantum physics and what it means for business. The practices of connectedness in the Maldives offer an incredible experience reconnecting to nature at its maximum expression. They are woven throughout the interactive learning modules as a gateway to actualizing your full potential.

This is a Retreat where you will:

  • Shift your executive mindset and action towards flourishing
  • Expand your consciousness to be more purposeful and connected
  • Adopt a worldview that is more collaborative and better balances “I” and “We”
  • Build the direct-intuitive skills to lead in environments of rapid change
  • Integrate personal practices aimed at creating value for you, business and the world
  • Collaborate with a global network of like-minded executives

I was born in Italy, in a traditional large Italian family with a caring working father and a loving and caring mother, grandmothers, brother, sister, cousins…well you get it! I was also living a dream in my earliest life: to become a professional footballer in Serie A. While I was close to accomplishing my dream, life events pushed me to change and start a new life travelling around the world and managing Hotels and Resorts in beautiful destinations. As someone who changes life so radically, I have been ready to do it all over again and since 6 years I am now in a completely new (and third) life, in a new country and culture in Switzerland and in the education world. There is something about living multiple lives within your one lifetime, and something tells me that I am not over with it. While it takes some courage to embark in new life adventures, it soon becomes a necessity. My sense is that I have developed a curiosity and a sense of urgency for learning about the world and the people that live in it. The problem with this is that the more you learn, the more you realize you know so little about it. So, how many lives does it take to satisfy such curiosity? I will definitely try as many as I can!
