According to Donald Rubbo, the current global state of uncertainty has had a negative impact on the decision-making processes of business leaders, politicians, professionals, small business owners and regular employees. Donald Rubbo, internationally acclaimed health expert and author, offers methods to successfully navigate these troubled times with clarity of mind and focused purpose.

(PRWEB) November 18, 2008 — Donald Rubbo, President of Rubbo Art of Energy and author of Extraordinary Breath, has been invited to present "Cultivating Power: Extraordinary Practices for Extraordinary Times," by Kevin O’Malley, Program Organizer of the Commonwealth Club’s Member-led Forum ‘Business and Leadership’ on December 8, 2008 at 6:00 PM.

"I am offering a way for people to not just survive the current turbulence, but to thrive, through self-directed strategies, and live authentic lives of limitless potential. Consider the question, ‘How many apples are in an apple seed?,’ and the answer is ‘countless.’ So too are our choices for our lives," says Donald Rubbo.

It is easier to lead others and inspire confidence when we are in a happy, relaxed, creative state. This program is designed to help attendees cultivate universal energies and develop universal wisdom, and tap into the limitless pool of resources, energy, strength and courage that successful leaders need to positively influence the course of events.

"Donald’s humor, warmth, wisdom and deep compassion opens hearts and informs receptive minds," says Christie Dames, CEO of Techtalk / Studio.

  • The importance of Intention-Driven Action
  • Finding inner strength in the midst of chaos
  • Techniques to stay alert and calm when faced with difficulties
