Dear Friends of PTCI!
I am very pleased to announce our new division, IDEALS@WORK, dedicated to bringing the PTCI concepts and exercises into organizations.
As you know, the mission of the Personal Transformation and Courage Institute is to assist individuals through small group work, to come to know their deepest held values – their Ideals. And, from the foundation of the Ideal, to work mindfully and constructively to remove the mental, emotional, and physical obstacles that stand in the way of fully expressing that Ideal in one’s daily life.
In PTCI courses, we teach concepts and provide experiential learning based on transformational psychologies and spiritual principles to support each participant’s inner growth. Our approach has been very impactful in helping individuals meet the challenges and opportunities in their lives in a qualitatively new way.
Based on our success at the individual level, we have taken the concepts and experiential exercises used in PTCI courses and tailored them to meet the challenges faced in the business world, creating a new division of PTCI – IDEALS@WORK.
IDEALS@WORK helps business and organizational leaders harness the talents of their teams, strengthen leadership skills, and engage in a higher level of personal and professional development. We work with business owners and senior management in a variety of organizations – non-profit as well as for-profit – who are seeking to elevate their level of performance and purpose.
IDEALS@WORK started out as an idea in early 2011. We formed a focus group of PTCI business owners and PTCI participants who were in senior management positions. Drawing from their input, experience, and wisdom, we adapted PTCI concepts and exercises to the business environment, where we have tested our ideas in a variety of business settings. We are very pleased with the impact, effectiveness and inspired leadership that IDEALS@WORK has brought to our first business clients. The concepts of Ideals and the application of mindfulness practices have been well received outside of the PTCI circle and in the corporate world.
Growing research and general awareness around the benefits of mindfulness and whole brain thinking make this new initiative timely. We believe we are at the forefront of a very exciting trend – one that brings mindfulness theories and practices into the business world, where they are really needed to address our society’s pressing issues. We are confident that there are organizations and businesses across the board – from education, healthcare, small businesses and large corporations to the military and government agencies, who are ready for and will benefit from this work.
