STRATEGIC STUDIES

The Tao of Leadership


Being Strategically Kind
Nov 11, 2018 Berkeley, CA, USA - 9am to 6pm
With Eva Wong

Acts of kindness are limitless. How we use kindness in an effective way requires skill. In this workshop, we will use principles of strategy outlined in Sunzi’s Art of War to plan and execute actions that are both wise and kind. While most people associate The Art of War with competition and aggressive actions in the military and business world, this workshop will show that the same skills can be bent toward building cooperation, trust, and respect.


Join Eva Wong, translator, scholar, and strategy consultant for a 1 day workshop on how to work with challenging environments in a non-aggressive, kind, and cooperative way. Using role playing and mock scenarios, we will experience and embody kindness. Using principles from Sunzi’s Art of War, we will learn how to apply and propagate kindness in a strategic and skillful way.

Strategies for Creating a Harmonious Home

Dec 1, 2018 Atlanta Shambhala Center, USA (9 am – 5:30 pm)

Eva Wong and Will Ryken

 

Home is where we live. Harmony within a home is the key to living a healthy, contented, and joyful life. How do we create harmony and avoid confusion and conflict within our home? While we all have different ideas of what “home” means for us, the home is first and foremost an environment. Some environments can create chaos, confusion, aggression, fear, distrust, and discomfort. Others can enhance cooperation, understanding, tolerance, and respect.

 

Interestingly, the most useful tool in understanding the effect of environments on attitude and feelings is found in Sunzi’s Art of War. This program offers an insight into how we can use the knowledge of environment and the power of strategy to create peace and harmony a place we call “Home”.

Strategies for Creating a Harmonious Work Place

 Dec 2, 2018 Atlanta Shambhala Center, USA (9 am – 5:30 pm)

 Eva Wong and Will Ryken     

 

Why are some work places harmonious, peaceful, and respectful, while others are full of conflict, confusion, and aggression? According to Sunzi the master strategist, space created by environments can affect thoughts, feelings, and actions.

 

In his classic The Art of War, Sunzi described environments that can make people feel threatened, intimidated, suspicious, fearful, and aggressive. He also described environments that can help people become more open, friendly, accommodating, and respectful.

 

In this program, we will look at the design of work places in the light of Sunzi’s environments and how they might affect the mental and emotional well-being of those who work there. If we learn how to create environments that foster care, respect, cooperation, and kindness, and avoid or change those that can create fear, distrust, and confusion, our work places will be more harmonious, less abusive, and even more productive.
