We Specialize in Teaching & Training [Leaders] from All Walks of Life
The idea of introspective leadership is built upon the practice of mindfulness (which can be more suitably termed as “introspection”) based on original Buddhist teachings. This form of mindfulness (that has no association with any religion) which is preserved in Sri Lanka enables practitionersto enhance their lives by following the Supernormal Eightfold Way. ManoLead is created to teach people about introspection (to provide a complete understanding of the concept of mindfulness) and to allow them to experience its benefits.
The contemporary concept of mindfulness has been gaining popularity, especially among those involved in leadership positions. However, due to mistranslations and misconceptions that rose when the original concept was revealed to Western cultures in the 19th century by the British scholar Rhys Davids, recent decades have seen a proliferation on misunderstood views on mindfulness.
The original concept of mindfulness is based on the Buddhist concept of Satipattana which means introspection or awareness about self by placing attention inside. By identifying cognitive dissonance (disconnection of emotions and intellect) and exploring the self through exercises to follow the Supernormal Eightfold Way, one can achieve cognitive consonance for a unified mind, resulting in mental equilibrium.
ManoLead, backed by years of academic research into the original form of mindfulness (introspection), has developed the model “Supernormal Eightfold Way for Introspective Leadership” to guide individuals to become better leaders driven by wholesome values.

Mindfulness is the [Seventh Step] of the
Eight Step Process
Our practice of mindfulness is a progressive ascending of a flight of steps in the Supernormal Eight-fold Way known as The Noble Eightfold Path (ariya attangika magga). Aligning with Bhante Punnaji’s teaching, ManoLead uses the word Supernormal instead of the common term “Normal” because of the term ‘Ariya,” used by the Buddha means something above the normal. Our services and people set us apart. Everything we do to transform leaders are meticulously planned down to the finest details.
The Art of [Mindful] Leader
Conflict can be resolved only by undoing the personalization (anupadana) – Buddha (MN.24)
The cognitive gets subordinated to the affective. The cognitive splits in to two – one taking the side of emotions and the other taking the side of thinking. Conflicts arose because people tend to personalize either the affective emotions or the cognitive reasoning. The power rested on the side personalized.
