Mindful Leadership

Your Organization needs this Workshop!

Effective leaders have a multiplier effect on savings and revenue generated through other areas of organizational excellence (strategy, culture, operations and innovation), and yearly savings and/or revenue associated with leadership training may range between $50,000 to $100,000 annually.


Leaders are now expected to guide their organizations through countless forms of complexity, including market uncertainty, rapid technological change, globalization, generational divides, cultural differences, and change management initiatives. Research demonstrates that practicing mindfulness enables success in this environment by transforming a leader's relationship with ambiguity altogether. Learning to lead mindfully enables this transformation by cultivating: Non Attachment, Resilience, Creativity, and Compassion.

Participants also learn how to awaken these same qualities in others and inspire them to rally around causes greater than their own self-interests.
