Course Description

In the words of Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) CEO Claire Lachance, Noetic Leadership: A Powerful New Model for Our Times can be thought of as where “mystic meets MBA.” How can we best use our inner-knowing in harmony with classical management tools to produce results that are both successful for our organizations and sustainable for our interconnected world?  What can we learn from science to expand our ability to tap into our noetic gifts?  To what degree can the integrity of our purpose actually strengthen our innate abilities and thereby affect greater positive impact as leaders?  These are all questions explored through the Noetic Leadership program.

Organized around the “Three I’s” of Inner-Knowing, Interconnection, and Integrity, the intensive Noetic Leadership Workshop provides a highly interactive and stimulating learning experience for leaders across a wide range of private and public sectors.  The course material is personally delivered by Claire Lachance, who grounds the core concepts in over 40 years of IONS’ scientific research and related principles from the world’s wisdom traditions.


Use your inner-knowing in constructive harmony with objective business tools 

  • Make inner-knowing a systematic part of your leadership life rather than viewing it as a random occurrence
  • Observe, revisit, and challenge your beliefs and perceptions
  • Employ the power of personal intention to manifest results


Move from a flat to multi-dimensional view of your leadership ecosystem

  • Articulate your own unique, multi-dimensional ecosystem as a leader
  • Optimize the invisible energy that connects us collectively and propels us individually
  • Understand that our leadership impact is not limited by distance or time


Recognize that the purity of your intentions affects your leadership outcomes

  • Be clear and unyielding about your higher purpose and intentions
  • Utilize your higher purpose to foster team coherence
  • Tap into the power of integrity-based collective visualization to advance success

Venue – Villa Zuccari

Villa Zuccari Front Garden and TerraceThe Hotel Villa Zuccari, in the San Luca district of Montefalco, is a large country house. The building’s oldest wing dates back to the late 16th century while the facade and the general layout date back to the 1800’s. Originally, the family’s living quarters were on the large upper floor while the ground floor served as the storage area for the foods harvested from the fields and the administrative office. The villa is surrounded by centuries-old trees and grounds that extend over an area of 40,000 square meters, where you can enjoy the 20 x 10 meter infinity swimming pool. The park, with its cypress-lined path, forest and extremely rare varieties of trees, including the Ginkgo biloba, paulownia, field maple, pink flowering horse-chestnut tree, Italian stone pine, and many more, is completely level, making it an ideal place for walking or jogging. The 980 Meilland rose bushes offer a unique spectacle from May to October. (adapted from Villa Zuccari website)
