All leaders can benefit from reduced stress, increased resilience, better self-awareness, and improved performance. One way to achieve all of this is through mindfulness.
By practicing mindfulness, you will be better able to stay in the present, pay full attention, and act in an emotionally intelligent manner. These are things that are tremendously important when managing people and projects in uncertain times.
In the leadership program, Mindful Leadership, you will dive into the benefits of mindfulness, how to apply it to yourself and your team, and use it to build stronger relationships. Finally, you will be equipped with the skills and tools you need to actually begin practicing mindful meditation in your everyday life as a people leader.
Whether you are preparing to move into a leadership role, have been promoted recently into leadership, or have been a people leader for many years, Mindful Leadership is a foundational leadership program designed to make you a stronger leader.
While we know you will complete this program feeling inspired, we'll do you one better. This program will leave you immediately equipped and confidently able to:
Practice mindfulness to improve decision making and innovation
Reduce distraction and stress through self-awareness
Build relationships through emotional intelligence
The Mindful Leadership program is made up of highly interactive sessions led by a facilitator that encourages you to network with peers, brainstorm ideas, engage in skill-building activities, and receive constructive feedback. The program will also give you access to a library of self-directed resources such as videos, readings, and self-assessments.
