Lawrence Warry lives in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and has followed his passion for Aikido, the martial art of Peace, for more than 20 years and is a 4th dan black belt national instructor of the Japanese martial art, Aikido, in The Netherlands.
In 2013, Lawrence received certification as a Samurai Game® facilitator. The Samurai Game® is an ingenious personal development game, created by the late George Leonard, which has ingrained in it, principles of Aikido and mindfulness.
In his talk, Lawrence tells how his life brought him to Aikido and The Samurai Game® and how his experience elevated him to realize some universal leadership principles and tribal values which are often missing from the modern day world. He explains that the act of surrendering as a leader is effective for leadership and collaboration, and, the Samurai Game® is a simple but effective tool for learning this.
