Jerry Colonna + Dan Harris

Leadership and the Art of Growing Up

Wednesday, July 10, 2019
7:00 PM–8:30 PM
Sold Out

What happens when leaders who hold structural power fail to develop their inner power and let bad psychological habits run amok? Venture capitalist turned executive coach Jerry Colonna calls upon CEOs and others to embrace the experience of being challenged to grow, to rethink the structures of their lives, and to make peace with their demons: the psychological habits and long-held patterns that have helped them to succeed yet have been detrimental to their relationships and ultimate well-being.

How? Colonna shares with ABC anchor Dan Harris the tools of inquiry—inspired by Buddhism, Jungian therapy and more—that all of us can use to tap into our unconscious minds, help unmask ourselves, and enhance our sense of community.

This program marks the launch of Jerry Colonna’s new book REBOOT: Leadership and the Art of Growing Up. There will be a book signing after the talk.

Presented together with Naropa University.
