The world of work is in turmoil
The majority of leadership development programs have emerged from this very milieu: teaching people, quite paradoxically, how to thrive in such an environment while maintaining it.
The Academy is for Game Changers: people who dare to challenge the fundamentals of their domains and thrive for transformative change.
If you get all three of these benefits, we've achieved our goal:
To achieve these fundamental leadership traits, we introduce you to timeless principles that were adopted by the greatest leaders in history.
You will learn about methods of critical thinking and will be able to detect and change thus far unconsciously followed patterns.
You will learn about the ID MAP framework and discover the individual and universal elements of style.
Awareness is an invaluable factor in both action and thinking.
We invite you to a journey on an alternative path that challenges the very fundamentals of work and business, and gives you tools, opportunities and perhaps even courage for making fundamental change.
Whatever domain of life you are active in, your views, thinking, behavior and acts determine how you’re perceived and respected in your organization. The rest are technicalities that you’ve probably learned to master already.
In this journey we shall rely on real principles, not on their watered down business versions. Let’s face it: there are no such things as business ethics, business leadership, business philosophy, business thinking, business relationships or professional behavior for that matter. Business, modelled after a machine and infused by scientism, knows nothing of people.
In order to lead, game changers must allocate time for focused thinking and reflection on principles above the business domain. Such a practice has a profound effect on their views, thinking and behavior, and thus on how they are perceived and respected within and without their organizations.
The course is interactive and follows peer-education principles whereby the participants learn from each other while processing the topics, generating further insights.
Group interactions provide great opportunities to practice the principles of logic or rhetoric, following the spirit of the Seven Liberal Arts.
We have been busy memorizing mostly other people’s opinions, and we have learned not to question what or how we’re being taught. This is in sharp contrast with the spirit of classical education, that gave birth to the greatest thinkers and leaders in history.
The Prakhsis Academy Curriculum aims at reviving the Trivium, which was the foundation of the education of thinkers in the Antiquity and the Middle Ages, focusing on correct communication, as well as correct thinking and reasoning, whereby mere problem-solving was considered to be the most inferior type of thinking.
The discussion of the topics - themselves invaluable for developing an effective leadership practice - provides a great opportunity to adopt or fine-tune the principles of correct communications: grammar, logic and rhetoric.
