About Peter Anderson, PhD
Very few things in life or business are straightforward, especially when it comes to human communication. Inner Citadel Consulting specializes in helping individuals, teams, and organizations notice, engage, and empower emotional intelligence, workplace communication, and conflict resolution strategies in order to establish healthy patterns and processes and to facilitate complex dialogue.
Inner Citadel Consulting offers Mindfulness and Mindful Leadership workshops, virtual retreats, and consultations for individuals, small businesses and organizations. Strategies for a mindful approach to work and life and full engagement with potentials support emotional intelligence competencies. Our long practice in mindfulness is supplemented by modern research in leadership & mindfulness as well as the ancient understandings and practices of Stoicism.
An entrepreneur at heart, Peter has always looked for the next challenge. After more than two decades in academia – with publications, national awards, and international academic leadership experience – Peter wanted to build an independent consulting firm that could integrate his passion for people, practical Stoic philosophy, and evidence-based emotional intelligence development. His conviction that good, careful work can make lives better and more fulfilling have been at the core of his efforts to point people and organizations in the right direction. Building on his skills as a dialogue facilitator (he is a UN Habitat certified facilitator), Peter specializes in helping individuals, teams, and organizations notice, engage, and empower emotional intelligence and mindful leadership strategies in order to increase effectiveness, reduce conflict, promote diversity & inclusion, and build healthy workplace cultures.
As a licensed and certified practitioner with Genos International, Peter offers the full suite of Emotional Intelligence assessments, addressing organizational needs in talent selection, talent management, and leadership development. A dynamic and award winning teacher, Peter offers group workshops, individual development planning, and long-term coaching for leaders. Emotional Intelligence coaching brings a very high return on investment for leaders and leadership development in these sectors, building up mindful and effective leaders and promoting diversity, inclusion, and the value of sharing perspectives.
