The practice of mindfulness – centering your attention through the breath to be present and aware – has been around for thousands of years. A growing body of research is demonstrating it can have a powerful impact on how people think, feel, act, relate, perform and collaborate at work. The basic benefit of mindfulness is the ability for one to acknowledge and move away from emotion to reason and logic.

Today, many organizations are investing in mindfulness training programs for managers and leaders to help regulate emotion to improve decision-making abilities, with an added benefit of better health and wellness.

This workshop, facilitated by a long-term workplace mindfulness practitioner, will include two meditation practice sessions. Put into context through the five virtues of great leaders, you will learn how to practically apply mindfulness to the meetings you lead, the decisions you make and the ways you inspire your team. The program is designed to provide the foundation for creating lasting personal change towards being a present and authentic leader.

Note: check out our Finding Balance Through Mindfulness course for anyone who wants to improve their self-awareness and find new ways of dealing with a challenging workplace environment.

This is a one-day virtual live workshop.

Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
