Jeremy Hunter teaches courses on the Executive Mind and the Practice of Self-Management. He is also the founding director of the Executive Mind Leadership Institute, which is dedicated to helping leaders thrive by enhancing their capacity for effective action.
His courses cultivate human capital by developing the positive qualities necessary for sustainable and effective professional action. These courses enhance the skill of mindfulness, a focused and deliberate moment-to-moment awareness. With practice, mindfulness fosters clarity, focus and judgment, enables more skillful decision making, and improves communication and interpersonal relationships as well as quality of life.
