How Vital Leaders Change the World: Creating Energy to Catalyze

Wednesday, July 31 & Thursday, August 1
1:30 – 2:30PM
The Junto: Franklin Ballroom

The world’s challenges are demanding that leaders step up in a new way to shape the future. Meanwhile, a large number of leaders report experiencing stress and burnout. We need a new model where human vitality is at the center of effective action. When leaders nurture their vitality, they become more effective, engaged, and a powerful catalyst for those around them. 

This workshop introduces tools and practices based on more than two decades of working with leaders around the world. You will learn practices that shift and renew your nervous system while developing an approach to renewal that will fuel your ability to make an impact.

Jeremy Hunter, PhD is the Founding Director of the Executive Mind Leadership Institute as well as Associate Professor of Practice at the Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management. For over a decade, he has helped leaders develop themselves while retaining their humanity in the face of monumental change and challenge.

He created and teaches The Executive Mind, a series of demanding and transformative executive education programs. They are dedicated to Drucker’s assertion that “You cannot manage other people unless you manage yourself first.” He co-leads the Leading Mindfully Executive Education program at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business.

He has designed and led leadership development programs for a wide variety of organizations, including Fortune 200 aerospace, Fortune 50 banking and finance, accounting, the arts and civic non-profits. Program impacts have led to both positive professional, personal and financial outcomes for participants.

Hunter has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The Economist, The Financial Times, the Los Angeles Times and National Public Radio’s Morning Edition. He has been voted Professor of the Year five times.

His work is informed by the experience of living day-to-day for 17 years with a potentially terminal illness. When faced with the need for life-saving surgery more than a dozen former students came forward as organ donors.

Dr. Hunter received his Ph.D. from University of Chicago, under the direction of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. He also holds a degree in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and in East Asian Studies from Wittenberg University.
