What does it mean to be a Taoist and a leader? In the Taoist wisdom tradition, to be a leader is to embody the view of vastness. Leadership is not about controlling things to go our way or dragging everybody else behind us. Rather, it is inspiring and leading by example. Most important, it is the skill of knowing when to let things run their natural course and when to guide them along. This is the principle of “wu-wei”, the path of effortlessness.
To maintain a view of vastness, a leader needs to understand the natural, human, and the spirit world. Just as the Tao benefits and accommodates all, the leader things and acts for the good of all. Knowing that ambition creates disharmony, the leader does not push him or herself and others beyond physical and mental limits.
Join Eva Wong in exploring the Taoist art of effortless and responsible leadership using references from her best-selling book Being Taoist Wisdom for Living a Balanced Life, and discover how to apply Taoist leadership skills to your social, work, and domestic life. Participants must bring a copy of Being Taoist Wisdom for Living a Balanced Life in paper or e-book form.
