Eric Kaufmann Biography

Eric Kaufmann’s earliest professional insight into coaching and leadership wasn’t at his sales role at 3M, nor his Marketing leadership role at Corning. His first job exposure to coaching and leading was when he was a Scuba Diving Instructor at Ocean Enterprises in San Diego, when he was a college student. It’s there that he learned the techniques and values of organizing and influencing people to learn new skills, work together, and venture into the unknown and have a grand time.

For the past 19 years, after leaving Corporate, Eric has been the President of Sagatica, an executive development consultancy. Eric and his crew partner with leaders and teams at companies such as Verizon, SunPower, Dr. Bronner’s, Alcon, and Cymer. He describes his work as an unrelenting commitment to results with an unyielding regard for the human spirit.

Eric’s book, The Four Virtues of a Leader: Navigating the Hero’s Journey through Risk to Results, turns early scuba lessons into teaching the essential virtues shared by successful, passionate, and creative leaders and how they navigate through uncertainty and anxiety. As an Executive Coach, Consultant, Speaker and Author, he partners with leaders to go below the surface and beyond the obvious so they can think more clearly, make better decisions, and relate wholeheartedly.

Eric is a Fellow and Thought Leader at Harvard’s Institute of Coaching, and a speaker for TEDx. In addition to nearly two decades of coaching leaders, he has drawn on management roles at Fortune 100 firms, degrees in business and psychology, thirty years of Zen practice, living in Israel and South Africa, teaching as a Master Scuba Diving instructor, working as a certified hypnotherapist, and meditating in a year-long retreat in an isolated cabin he built in the mountains of New Mexico.

Eric lives with his wife, two daughters and dog and cat in San Diego, CA.

Coach-Led Q&A: The Blueprint to Conscious Leadership with Eric Kaufmann

Session length: 45 minutes

2019-06-03T17:00:00-04:00 Monday, June 3rd 17:00 EDT

As coaches, we know much about what leaders do and how they do it, but we often don’t know enough about their inner place, the source from which they operate. Successful leadership depends on the quality of attention and intention that the leader brings to any situation - the quality of their consciousness. Two leaders in the same situation can bring about completely different outcomes, depending on the consciousness from which each operates.

This Deep Dive Q&A into the Blueprint for Conscious Leadership is an opportunity to address Source – that inner place from which coaches and leaders decide, relate, and think – in order to remove blind spots that get in your way and diminish meaningful relationships and results. We’ll examine and distinguish WHO (inner source) from HOW (the process) and WHAT (the results).

To extract the most possible value from your time in this session, conceive of your most curious questions about conscious leadership.

Key Learning Takeaways

  1. Clarify distinctions of cause and effect in leadership results.
  2. Apply the levers of conscious leadership for engagement.
  3. Understand the subtle and definitive source of personal change.
