Two successful leaders from the financial world shared their insights on leadership and in particular how the practice of meditation has helped them form and apply these insights both in their work and across their lives. Peter Ng Kok Song, chief investment officer at the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation, spoke on the attributes of leadership and how meditation bears fruit in self-transcending leadership. Sean Hagan, general counsel of the International Monetary Fund, spoke about how the practice of meditation has made him a better decision-maker and manager.
