  3. 3. Personal Insight Workshops The Personal Insight Workshop is framed around a key distinction—significant change must be seen not as simply a new way of doing things, but as a radical shift in root perspective. A transformation is as much about alignment and accountability as it is about strategy. Personal Insight Workshops (PIW’s) are powerful interventions aimed at initiating and accelerating significant mindset and behavior change within a team, group or organization. These tailored workshops have been successfully rolled out across several Fortune 500 corporations in the context of larger scale performance transformations. The PIW is a high impact, two day intervention for up to thirty people delivered by experienced transformational facilitators. Starting with the organizational context and direction for change, the workshop moves into the personal domain. Thousands of executives, managers and front-line workers have experienced the PIW over the past few years, with remarkable organizational and performance changing results.

  4. 4. Beyond Yes™ Leadership Mastery and High Performance Our flagship personal mastery offering, Beyond Yes™ Leadership Mastery and High Performance, presents the core content of a forthcoming book, Beyond Yes: Negotiation Mastery from the Inside and Out, written by Mobius President Erica Ariel Fox. Erica is a lecturer at Harvard Law School and the founder of the Global Negotiation Insight Institute. This unique and in demand experiential training explores the meeting places of timeless wisdom and spiritual practice on the one hand and the challenges of modern business and leadership on the other. Erica is internationally recognized as a pioneer in the integration of wisdom traditions and spiritual practice into the negotiation and conflict resolution field. Erica is also a business consultant, working with Fortune 500 companies as well as public sector leaders to build consensus, facilitate change and transform crisis into opportunities for growth. Beyond Yes™ Leadership Mastery and High Performance is based on a dozen years of experience teaching negotiation at Harvard Law School and over a decade training professionals around the world and providing strategic counseling and conflict mediation to top teams. Many people find themselves in positions of leadership based on outstanding technical performance or subject matter expertise. Of course, early in one’s career success depended on such technical competence and knowledge. At that stage high performance is measured by the ability to deliver quality results in an efficient manner. Moving ahead depends on execution skills such as concrete problem solving. At a certain point, however, such competence is no longer enough. As one moves into management, and ultimately positions of leadership, one needs to address different kinds of kinds of problems—involving people, teams and the organization as a whole. From developing people and leading teams to shaping an organizational culture, inspiring the workforce, and managing complex change, leadership requires more advanced skills. At this stage, one needs the internal strengths and external skills to lead in the most essential dimension of any organization—the domain of human capital. In this program one will learn the framework and tools one will need to lead people and organizations. Unlike other models that focus on behaviors this course operates from the inside out, building internal strengths and qualities one needs to serve as an effective leader. Unlike other personal growth experiences, this course focuses on the business applications of leadership skills, using “real time” coaching to ensure relevance and embedding of the skills. Blending century old wisdom with emerging leadership practices, this workshop offers a unique and deep immersion into personal development leading to professional mastery. Through mindfulness and heightened self-awareness, communication skills, decision making, execution and problem solving are radically improved. Using a proven methodology, “Archetypes and Autobiography,” this program will draw on life experiences and current work challenges to foster insights and breakthroughs that lead to high performance. At the end of this course one will return to work empowered, with new executive skills and a greater capacity for impact and leadership.
  5. 5. A Brief History of Beyond Yes™ Leadership Mastery and High Performance As a student at Harvard Law School in the early nineties, Erica was very involved in the negotiation and mediation programs. These groups had launched the best-selling Getting to Yes and the win-win approach that later spread around the world. After practicing law for a year, Erica returned to Harvard Law School in 1996 as a Lecturer to teach negotiation, which she continues to do today. Over the past dozen years Erica has emerged as a global leader in the negotiation field. After the events of September 11, 2001, Erica felt a strong pull to investigate new, untapped perspectives on conflict and to respond to a need expressed by many professionals for deeper meaning in their lives. In 2003, Erica drew on her diverse experience to found the Harvard Negotiation Insight Initiative (HNII) to explore what ancient wisdom traditions and contemplative practices could offer the contemporary negotiation and conflict field. HNII served as a living laboratory, bringing professionals together from dozens of countries to explore the interface of the world of action and the world of reflection. A broad range of professionals, from lawyers and business leaders to engineers and educators, experienced a meeting place between the demands of the outside world and the depth of the inner life. After running that program for several years at the Harvard Program on Negotiation, Erica expanded the project to form an independent non-profit called the Global Negotiation Insight Institute (GNII, pronounced genie) that seeks to build a wise, mature, and less violent global community. In her body of work, Erica focuses on helping professionals to cultivate internal qualities such as awareness, presence and balance, as well as to master skills for interacting effectively with others. This combination enables them to make conscious and constructive choices in their lives both at work and at home. Erica is recognized internationally for her pioneering work that explores the personal, spiritual and deeply human aspects of negotiation, execution and leadership. Beyond Yes™ unpacks the role that ancient insight and contemplative practices play in the contemporary life of successful professionals. On the next page you can learn more about how to bring Beyond Yes to your organization.
  6. 6. Beyond Yes™ Programs Keynote Presentations The Beyond Yes™ Leadership Mastery and High Performance content can be offered as a keynote presentation on the intersection of timeless wisdom, ethics, philosophy and spirituality with leadership in the modern world of business and international affairs. Workshop: Introduction to Leadership Mastery and High Performance This introductory exposure to the Beyond Yes™ methodology can be offered in half day, one day or two day time frames. The introductory course offerings allow participants to begin to understand a holistic model of leadership that draws on the power of thinking, emotions, action and creativity.

  8. 8. Transformational Leadership Intensives The following programs are customized transformational leadership programs designed for both the beginning seeker and the seasoned explorer of realms of consciousness. They touch on mystical wisdom traditions and archetypal symbology and ritual to enable participants to explore their unconscious and dream realms and unlock creativity, intimacy and expanding awareness. These programs help unblock stuck patterns of holding and relationship and enable us to foster joy, compassion and acceptance. Organizations wishing to take a group of leaders on a journey of self-exploration and building group trust should consider arranging one of these world class leadership programs and gearing it for your business needs and aspirations. Personal Mastery Intensive Mobius Executive Leadership invites you to live from a new perspective. Experience a program that will enable you to create the impact you wish to have in your work and in your life. This three and a half day workshop will help you unlock the mindsets and behaviors that interfere with your ability to achieve your dreams and become the architect of your own authentic life. In this program you take time as a group to align your hearts and minds for creating a new life dream or new organizational vision. Participants become skilled at living creatively and intentionally instead of reactively. Using simple tools you will learn, practice and share the life skills for making long-term, permanent changes one step at a time. This program features a variety of formats including lecture, experiential, one on one, in pairs and in small groups. We work extensively with foundational principles that create consciousness—bringing the ability to break free of old patterns and revision your life. Through the intensive workshop you will identify your innate strengths, abilities and unique gifts. This program will help you develop the emotional and spiritual intelligence for every area of your life to work well. We achieve true fulfillment through the integration of inner knowledge and outer action. This Intensive takes you beyond awareness to actionable skills for practical leadership—the conscious cultivation of inner wisdom and values translated into daily practice. Relationship Work One aspect of this program focuses on supporting participants in their primary dyadic relationships (be it romantic, family or friend). These exercises surface and manage breakdowns and withholds, build a shared set of norms for offering and receiving feedback, and help couples develop a shared picture of the future they would each like for themselves and for the relationship. The modules include verbal and non-verbal experiential exercises, and work on trust, fear and intimacy. Stage Work for Individuals or Couples In Stage Work participants self-select to work one on one with lead faculty with the group support. Participants can choose the piece of work they would like to focus on from the broad array of content supported by this workshop. They can also use the group as a container for their own self-expression, transformation or healing. This is a unique opportunity to work in real time with real issues.
  9. 9. Dream Work Participants are asked to bring dream fragments, images or whole dream stories into the workshop. We then use these dreams to illuminate patterns and highlight areas of capacity and resource within the dreamer. One of the primary gateways to the unconscious, dreams can provide remarkable meaning and insight for the dreamer as well as the group witnessing the process work. Dream symbolism has meaning at many levels including personal, transpersonal and collective. Faculty work to extract the most potent and useful teachings from the dreams while working with the dreamer and group. High Intensity Sound and Movement Programs sometimes use the expressive arts as a means for embodiment, exploration and enhanced freedom. High Intensity Sound is a module where participants relax and listen to evocative music as a kind of meditative journey into sounds, feelings and images from the unconscious. The programs also use movement, meditation, art, and active imagination to widen self-expression and build energy in the group process. Projection and Shadow Work In Relationship This module has participants examine the qualities in other people, be it partners or colleagues, that create strong emotional reactions for them. These may be either positive or negative resulting in strong desire or rejection. In either case, these reactions are mirrors for us of essential qualities and traits that are valuable for us to examine. This module helps people learn how to identify and take back their projections and thereby ease working relationships. Considered by many to be the key capability in personal accountability, owning and claiming a projected aspect of consciousness is a vital skill for any relationship to thrive and endure. Projection and Shadow work can be accessed in a variety of methods, with varying intensity, including but not limited to expressive arts, mask making, movement, active imagination, psychodrama and self-reflection/dyadic discussions. Meditation and Mindfulness Practice – DHMP The Personal Mastery Intensive will teach the Dynamic Heart and Mind Meditation along with additional guided experiences. It reviews the latest neuroscience findings on the benefits of mindfulness practice. Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, this instruction should leave participants with a practice they can integrate into an ongoing support for self-awareness, emotional self-regulation and increasing insight. Transformational Mindsets Our beliefs and expectations color every moment of our experience. Recent brain studies, positive psychology and ancient teachings all reflect the power each of us has to make our dreams and desires come true. Each individual has huge reservoirs of untapped potential and ability to shape their lives, relationships, and destinies. This program teaches participants to use new and ancient technology for sculpting and shaping their lives. “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” – Carl Jung “The imagination is capable of kindness that the mind often lacks. It searches for the hidden worlds that wait at the edge of things.” – John O’Donohue
  10. 10. Mobius Women’s Leadership Programs: A Deepening of the Feminine We work with public sector leaders, social entrepreneurs and corporate executives to find their own voices and embolden their vision. We have a strong conviction that taking time to share our individual and collective experiences of being women in today’s world allows us to learn and stretch together, while being encircled with the spirit of women’s wisdom. These programs offer a setting in which participants feel at liberty to explore themselves and step back from the day to day requirements of their lives. These leadership programs can serve as an integrating force in helping your authentic vision and values surface and express themselves. These programs are integrative of mind/body dynamics and allow participants to dive into how they understand themselves, their work, and their purpose. The tools of our exploration will include story telling, dream work, art, authentic movement, ritual and rites of passage, active imagination, meditation, music and dance. This program takes place in beautiful, pristine natural settings and includes extensive renewal modules including yoga and movement, contemplative practices, wellness services and other informal time to heal and rest. The curriculum of the program includes: • Leadership Presence • Innovation and Creativity • Empathy and Assertiveness • Initiation rites intrinsic to women • Neuroscience and Neuroplasticity • Study of the archetypal forces and power • Voice Dialogue of the feminine In this leadership program women learn to integrate the masculine and feminine dimensions of their leadership style; find practices of ongoing reconnection to themselves and spirit; and commit further to building a peaceful and more sustainable world.
  11. 11. Initiatory Programs Offered as Public Enrollment Courses Initiating the Heart This richly nourishing retreat explores the perennial spiritual traditions of the Heart Center as a gateway to compassion and unconditional love. From this initiation comes a life filled with meaning and full with feeling and wisdom. Participants most often say that having their hearts initiated results in overcoming fear and replacing it with love and openness, bringing power, creativity, and the deepest healing possible. Reclaiming the Shadow The term “Shadow” refers to Carl Jung’s concept, an archetype of personal and col- lective unconscious. Each of us has unseen parts of our personality; anything from isolated or wounded selves to rich, vital and creative aspects. Anything denied within us drains our energy, and robs us of our greatest power and vitality. The Shadow conference teaches us how to uncover these areas in us personally, recognize them collectively and turn their destructive power into integrated components of ourselves. Prerequisite: Initiating the Heart. Awakening the Seer This is a powerful initiation for the awakening of the throat center and the third eye. This conference awakens “the Seer,” making intuition and psychic ability available. A spiritual awakening occurs, engendering universal wisdom and insight. Learn to bridge personal, unconscious, ordinary and heightened realms through centering, meditation, ritual, dreamwork, myth and ancient tribal practices and traditions. Prerequisite: Initiating the Heart. Dream Voices: Dreams as the Gate to Creativity Dreams are the portal to our most creative and empowered selves. This program uses Voice Dialogue, dream drama and dream interpretation to discover the creative potential in your dreams. Dreaming is universal. Even if you don’t recall your dreams this workshop will help you discover startling insights, creative ideas and the unseen resources held in the personal and collective unconscious. It will also enable you to deepen and develop your ability to work with symbols and understand your ongoing dream messages and meanings.

  12. 12. Mobius Facilitator Development Program™ Building In-House Capacity to Deliver Mobius Personal Mastery Offerings For companies wishing to build internal capacity to deliver Mobius Executive Leadership trademarked personal mastery programs Mobius offers a thirty day Facilitator Development certificate Program (“The FDP”). The FDP is a once in a lifetime chance to study with leading spiritual faculty and our expressive arts team and support exploration of the spiritual underpinnings of our lives. The FDP is a wonderful blending of shared study, community gathering, individual and group meditative practice, dream work and group exploration. The curriculum of each FDP is ultimately determined by the group and each individual discovers their own depth of study and practice. However, each FDP covers all of the transformational content and educational pedagogy required to effectively deliver either the Personal Insight Workshops or Beyond Yes: Leadership Mastery and High Performance. The FDP is a highly intensive program of advanced group work and self-exploration. The FDP will familiarize future facilitators with the core models and practices of the Mobius personal mastery suite of programs as well as enable the participants to have greater access to their own practices for grounding, opening and in depth exploration. The focus on the FDP is on how to build and support a transformational learning environment in which others can safely explore their inner life and better understand themselves on both the inner and outer levels. Participation in an FDP requires an application and interview process to assure personal readiness and maturity of the group. To enable one on one coaching and tutoring on content modules throughout the field and forum training experience the FDP group size is limited to twelve participants per program. As prerequisites to attendance in an FDP participants must first have taken the personal insight workshop and either the five day introduction to Beyond Yes: Leadership Mastery and High Performance or the Personal Mastery Intensive. The structure of the FDP includes pre-work, a first forum over nine days, a one week tutoring in module delivery, a second forum over seven days, and a final week for module certification. The forum programs are designed as experiential intensives for individual and group development. Once certified to deliver the program, participants then teach the program with an experienced lead facilitator from Mobius and receive ongoing coaching until ready to serve as a lead trainer. Mobius is proud of our flagship personal mastery programs and happy to work with client organizations to build internal capability to offer these tools and methodologies more broadly to their teams, managers and executives.

I am for those tiny, invisible loving human forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, yet which, if given time, will rend the hardest monuments of human pride. William James
