We will be hosting an evening conversation on “Leading with Attention: Mindfulness and High Stakes Decision Making” with special guest, the Director of the US Army Staff, Lieutenant General Walter Piatt.

In addition to his many accomplishments during his 40-year military career, LTG Piatt is the author of two books of poetry, a long-time champion and practitioner of mindfulness, and advisor to Dr. Amishi Jha’s research on mindfulness training in military cohorts.

In this evening conversation, LTG Piatt will speak from his perspective as a soldier and military leader on the power of mindfulness to improve discernment, survive the battle, and win the peace.

We strongly encourage you to attend this rare conversation!
