APEX – Achieving Personnel Excellence

APEX brings The Art of Living Foundation's success to the corporate world through its Leadership Development Program. At APEX we believe that within every individual there is a leader waiting to be unveiled. The Program transforms individuals into leaders based on the simple principle - an individual able to manage oneself is truly capable of leading exemplary life and inspiring others on a sustainable basis. Inability to focus, negative emotions, lack of self-confidence, deep-rooted insecurity, unexplained anxieties, and lack of self-esteem are all factors that prevent one from living life to one's fullest potential. Stress builds up and it aggravates the downward cycle.

Very often skills learnt in organizations work on efficiency but do not address the root -the individual.

APEX program modules are structured to bring deeper levels of understanding and experiences that harmonize all the seven levels of an individual's existence - body, breath, mind, intellect, memory, ego and the Self. In harmony is calmness, in calmness is dynamic action. APEX creates benefits that are sustainable by offering practical tools that begin the process of transformation at the deepest levels. The Program is experiential.

It touches the inner core by using the SudarshanKriya® - a powerful breathing technique that impacts the body, the mind and the spirit. This creates an inspired individual ready to explore, open to change and willing to take responsibility through ownership.
