At any moment in your life, you have a hierarchy of choices at your disposal. Developing a mindful awareness of all the elements — your feelings, thoughts and sensations — that influence your decisions will give you the skills to reach the highest level of conscious decision-making, where you can combine instinct, intellect, insight and intuition to operate in “the zone.” Krishna will highlight the more intangible human elements to enrich the quality and sustainability of your choices while reducing the consequences of poor judgment driven mostly by our mindless reactions.
Krishna Pendyala is the Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer at the ChoiceLadder Institute and the President of the Mindful Nation Foundation.

He is the creator of the AlphaZone workshops designed to refine the skills of conscious judgment and effective choice-making.
