A conversation with yogi, mystic and visionary humanitarian Sadhguru with serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist BV Jagadeesh.
We are all leaders. Whether you are an entrepreneur, a CXO of a large corporation or a community leader, leadership qualities are necessary for success in all aspects of life. But some leaders take their leadership, their teams and their companies to far greater excellence than others.
• What does it take to achieve that excellence?
• What makes some leaders realize continued and ongoing success?
• How can they fulfill their responsibilities joyfully rather than being stressful?
• How do they manage their body, mind and emotions?
Leadership requires an inner strength, a quality that can be enhanced and strengthened. Join Sadhguru and Jagadeesh for a lively discussion about what it takes to scale the challenges of business and life to manifest the kind of legacy, team, and success that most only dream of creating.
This special event continues the acclaimed series "In Conversation with the Mystic" where prominent leaders from diverse fields, such as Infosys and ICICI Chairman, K.V. Kamath, Apollo Hospitals Chairman Dr Prathap Reddy, fashion designer and entrepreneur Donna Karan and movie director Shekhar Kapur, have explored a variety of subjects with Sadhguru.
This is a special event co-hosted by SIPA along with other bay area organizations.

Equally at home trekking barefoot through the Himalayas as riding a motorcycle on the expressway, meeting with world leaders or speaking with farmers in rural communities, Sadhguru is a contemporary mystic rooted as strongly in worldly and pragmatic matters as he is in inner experience and wisdom.
Sadhguru’s inclusive vision for human wellbeing, spurred him to establish the Isha Foundation, a public service organization. Started 30 years ago, and run by over 2 million volunteers today, Isha has grown from its grassroots origins in southern India to a global presence with centers in over 150 cities worldwide. Named one of India’s 50 most influential people, he has addressed prominent global forums on issues as diverse as socio-economic development, leadership and spirituality such as United Nations, World Economic Forum, TED, British House of Lords, the Australian Leadership Retreat, MIT and London School of Business.
His interviews are featured in The New York Times, BBC, Bloomberg, CNNI and CNBC. He is the author of over 50 books, the subject of four books and co-author of the Amazon bestseller “Midnights with the Mystic.” His public talks frequently draw crowds of over 300,000 people.
A yogi and visionary humanitarian of our times, Sadhguru works tirelessly towards the physical, mental and inner well-being of all. He was also honored with the Indira Gandhi Award, India’s highest award for environmental work in recognition of his Project GreenHands initiative.
Sadhguru’s life and work serve as a reminder that the inner sciences are not esoteric philosophies from an outdated past but a contemporary science vitally relevant to our times.
