The Academy is designed for people who create transformative change in their domain (both business and beyond).
We guide you to refining your thinking through the structured application of principles in critical thinking and authenticity, in the Spirit of the Trivium from the Seven Liberal Arts.
The Curriculum follows the principles of Western and Far Eastern traditions that have always guided the thoughts and actions of true leaders.
The Academy is organized in a workshop format, in groups of 5-10 selected participants, over 10 weekends in a friendly and safe environment.
"The program is based on the robust foundations of ancient wisdom. It’s incomparably more practical than the usual “leadership” education, which stops at the surface. The program intellectually equipped me for a journey toward authenticity: applying the practices not only raised my awareness of inhibiting patterns, but also created small alterations of thinking that lead to profound transformation."
- Zsolt Mohácsi
"I really enjoyed the course for its deep knowledge, presented in a comprehensible package, allowing applications either on personal or professional levels, minus the need for overly complicated interpretations, all achieved by a clearly composed curriculum and a hands-on and on-point approach of the lecturer. It makes you think, broadens your knowledge, sharpens attention, and helps you tackle day-to-day tasks via enhancing one’s logical skills."
- Alexandr Poluektov
We invite you to a journey that challenges the very fundamentals of work and business, and gives you tools, opportunities and perhaps even courage for making fundamental change.
The Prakhsis Academy helps game changers refine their thinking in a friendly, neutral setting, away from the office or other fields of action. People who want to trigger transformative change in their environment, be it in business or in other fields, will find this course especially beneficial. By transformative we mean substantial changes that reach the very fundamentals of a given domain.
For example, in the business domain there is a lot of talk about “putting people first”, or about “being socially responsible”, while the loudest proponents of these ideas tend to be the most hypocritical ones. Namely, such objectives can’t be reached without changing the very fundamentals of business in its current shape and form. Few people are able or willing to actually put themselves on the line in order to fulfill such promises.
The curriculum provides insight into traditional doctrines and classical philosophies, fusing theoretical and practical components: no practice is sound without an appropriate theoretical foundation and no theory is meaningful if it can’t be practised.
Why do we reach back to traditional doctrines and philosophies, instead of drawing inspiration from successful business leaders, like everybody else does? Does such a curriculum have any relevance in our postmodern age?
Evidently, drawing inspiration from successful business leaders would be absurd for real game changers. When it comes to principles, these are the same ones the greatest leaders of antiquity and beyond adopted for their given age and special challenges. Principles don’t change, but good change must be adjusted to principles.
The course is interactive and follows peer-education principles whereby the participants learn from each other while processing the topic presented by the facilitator. Reflecting together and discussing practical cases help generate further insights. Group interactions also provide great opportunities to practice the principles of logic and rhetoric, following the spirit of the Seven Liberal Arts.
