Brian Bauerle

As founder of the Asian Leadership Institute, Brian Bauerle has over 40 years’ experience working in Asia with multinational and family-run companies. He has been instrumental in creating ALI’s unique core competence in mindfulness-based leadership transformation. Brian trained as a professional psychotherapist, earning a postgraduate fellowship in psychoanalysis from the prestigious Menninger Foundation in the United States. He has also held faculty positions at major universities in both the US and Australia.

We help organisations create the high performing teams to form thriving organisations.

Five years spent as a monk in Tibet and Thailand gave Brian a deep experiential understanding of the fundamentals and essence of mindfulness training. He uses this unusual experience in a practical, yet provocative way that directly applies to business.

He has worked closely with a wide variety of corporate and governmental institutions to design and implement strategies for organisational and personal change. In recent years, he has focused more of his time working with large Asian family-run businesses, where family dynamics play a new and challenging role in the transformational process. His success derives from his practical awareness, his extensive experience with business, and the wise, intuitive counsel he provides to his clients. He enjoys a regular meditation and yoga practice and continues a lifelong tradition of social work with his support for an orphanage on the Thai/ Burmese border named Schools of Hope.
