Event Details

"A good leader is one, who by their presence, increases the capacity for excellence in others, so that this excellence continues in the presence or absence of the leader. Women do this very well." -- John W. Maxwell

To be successful in our times, women leaders must become Game Changers in the arena of Disruptive Innovation. The three most important qualities of Enlightened Feminine Leadership that support disruptive innovation are:

  1. The ability to create psychological safety in individuals and teams so all voices are welcome
  2. The ability to use the powerful 'connective-edge' skill of turning teams into tribes and tribes into networks and networks into communities that create new realities
  3. Commitment to invoking organizational fearlessness in welcoming future possibilities through the process of divergent thinking

Attending the Enlightened Feminine Leadership will jump-start these capacities through in-depth teaching of new skills in the categories of BEING, DOING and RELATING. Through experience, theory and practical application, Enlightened Feminine Leadership supports leaders to bring "WHO they ARE into HOW they RELATE and LEAD."

Participants in the program will have the direct experience of the tools and embodiment processes of collective problem solving, creative relational intelligence, and using the human body as a resource in leadership. The resulting rapid and radical transformation ignited by Enlightened Feminine Leadership unleashes human potential to solve the complex challenges of these times.

On completion of the program, participants will experience a significant increase in their ability to:

  • have INSIGHT about what the real issues/problems are
  • experience NOURISHMENT
  • welcome REST and RECEPTIVITY to new problems


为了在这个时代取得成功,女性领导者必须成为颠覆性创新领域的规则改变者. 开明女性领导力支持颠覆性创新,其中三个最重要的品质是:

  1. 能够在个人和团队中创造心理安全感,使得所有人都能尽情发表意见
  2. 能够利用强大的"连接优势"技能将团队变成部落,并从部落变成网络,再从网络转变为创造新现实的社区

Sangha by Octave is a mere 1.5 hours away from Shanghai. As an immersive ex-urban retreat location in Suzhou, Sangha is surrounded by water where ancient Wu culture first started. Suzhou is a symbol in China for the artistic, cultural, sophisticated and mindful lifestyle. Sangha spreads over 189,000 square meters of lakefront peninsula on Suzhou's Yangcheng Lake. It is a place for mindful learning designed to enhance your connection with yourself, with others and with nature.

Sangha is the distillation of decades of reflection by Octave's Founder & CEO Chavalit Fred Tsao and is viewed by him as "an expression of a world-view where evolution is supported, and where consciousness can shift to embrace wholeness and connection."  

Sangha is an integrated complex of wellness residences and learning facilities consciously created by master architect Calvin Tsao to be the embodiment of a vision of how such a community might work. One of the spaces within Sangha - The Sanctuary - has won numerous architectural awards for its stunning design, elaborate interiors and exteriors, including UK Blueprint Awards, 2017 APIDA, the A&D Trophy Awards. 

Built with natural materials, Octave's aesthetics and design choices for Sangha re-think the whole idea of space utilization, reconsidering the balance between personal space and communal space, to create a greater sense of closeness, of community.
