Zero Zone praxis for Executives and Executive Coaches

Flexible focusing enables to concentrate on doing instead of evaluating

You may develop your craft endlessly.
One day you'll be on top. How and where to for next?
Crafts are not enough.
You are enough.
Expand your Self.

Such a process of Executive Coaching using Zero Zone praxis for business leadership entails a conversion of a leader from a false self (trapped in fear, greed, resentment, and a distortion of reality) to an authentic self (steeped in forgiveness, acceptance, gratitude, compassion, and integrity).[1] Via such training, the leader specifies their purpose, becomes selfless and orientated to serving others, focusing on doing and being able to see a united goal within a greater moral perspective.[2] Bachkirova (2022) outlines a theory of individual development, grounded in the knowledge of the self from psychology, philosophy, and other disciplines. Her approach is practical, as the desire for fulfilment in an era of materialism is emerging in the context of rapid change in business and society with a growing social consciousness. This results in the leader experiencing a sense of commitment, connection, and transcendence. Allen and Fry (2019) foreground that today, executive leaders perceive a spiritual aspect to their work and seek to grow the spiritual facet of their lives, which a coach can support.[3]

Flow is a state of concentration so focused that it amounts to absolute absorption in an activity.
It is easy to reach one, an achievement is to stay in one.

This training introduces Zero Zone Praxis (ZZ), especially encouraging one to reflect on one’s mind regularly, creating awareness about time and flexible focusing with focus guiding, developing a skill of detachment, explaining the essence of flow and how to use it and introducing different levels of consciousness for excellent daily performance. The ZZ Praxis has perceptual exercises and techniques with the lecture format to create an expanding intellectual understanding of the essence of the praxis. The best result will be achieved with repetitive training and daily application. 

     The First Stage: The Stairs

External, psychophysical

In this introductory level, we will discover how to create a shared space for collaboration.

The Second Stage: The Entrance

Introverted kinaesthetic awareness in use.

The techniques at this level are turning external focus (from physical doing) inward, tuning one to be more intimate, balanced and thereby more precise, present and aware of the inner processes for differentiation and sharpening perception.

 The Third Stage: Zero Zone Dynamics           

    The intellectual knowledge, given in a lecture-discussion mode.

While the first two levels are carried by curiosity and gradually progressing awareness, supported by personal insights private to every participant, the third level frames everything: the reasons, the destination, the path and the result. 

The sessions are developed to contribute to personality training and performing quality in terms of a better understanding of using perceptual skills. The results of the training can be applied as a proactive tool to prevent anxiety, confrontation or confusion while maintaining personal and team balance. The praxis enhances individual and team skills in focusing and communication by removing several blockages. After monitoring and reflecting on the concrete needs, the scope will be agreed upon.

    Extraordinary absorption... profound, deep focusing on the task and uninterrupted communication flow

    Neil, 41, Deputy Head

    I realize sometimes that I am too oriented toward results. I like to achieve, being in the centre of attention. However, it is stressful and I also realize how selfish this attitude could be. It also takes a lot of energy. Zero Zone praxis helps to stay focused on doing and the shift is remarkable!

    Rebecca, 37, Sales Manager

    The Jump is really effective […] … even with a partner with whom you have been a colleague for a long time. You will discover the eyes and go in a somewhere intense connection.

    Alice, 36, Multilingual Actress

    This was challenging for me for first – how will the ensemble follow the idea of additional training. Fortunately, they took the extra training as something refreshing, with joy!

    Tim, 52, Experienced Director for Stage, TV and Radio

    I immediately felt a decisive confrontation as the director started from the wrong end. I used the Shift instead of starting to argue with her to defend my reaction. This saved the situation and brought personal relief!

    Laura, 29, Renown film and stage actress

    When I feel I will force the solution, I step back now. This provides more space for the ideas coming from the team and encourages us to contribute equally, preventing mistakes. Zero Zone praxis actually decreases my responsibility and increases the department's commitment.

    Dave, 47, Executive Manager

    Actors usually love games. This made it easy to start with the process, I actually found myself supported by them and this, in turn, reignited myself.

    Erin, 69, Director with an outstanding career

    The absorption is so strong. I practice it every evening, from the need

    Ann, 28, AD

    … this helps to get familiar and already into more dedicated connection with new further partners and avoid also stage fright!

    Robin, 43, Professional Actor for thirty years
