For the past 15 years, Tony has been training under two Masters in traditional Japanese Zen. He is versed in both Soto, “let the mountain come to you” Zen, and Rinzai, “get your ass up the mountain” Zen, and incorporates both schools of thought into his coaching programs. He’s leveraged his 3000+ hours in meditation to develop innovative tools (adapters) for an applied approach to mindfulness and EQ. Check out Tony’s brain here. These adapters allow executives to experience the benefits of mindfulness — the ability to access states of optimal flow resulting in peak performance and greater results — without spending years in meditation. Tony’s experience as an instructor in a form of mixed-martial arts developed by a Navy Seal combat instructor has also influenced his leadership coaching.
