Mindful Leadership in Action
Master 5 Mental Markers of Mindfulness to reset your focus, reduce stress and re-balance your leadership approach
1 Day Mindful Action Master Class for your personal leadership wellbeing
A major mission of leaders is to help their people stay engaged and on-task – so they can apply themselves to producing good results, relatively free of stress, distraction or upset. Before they can help their people like this, though, leaders need to work on setting aside their own distractions and focusing their own attention first. That’s where Mindful Leadership in Action can help - it looks at what it means and how to lead mindfully…
What's this clinic about?
Mindfulness isn't a practice you encounter all that much in the rush-’n-hurry of workplaces yet it actually underscores so many things that matter for good leadership. Work, for many of us, seems to be a place where action is valued over reflection; where we prefer speedy decisions over more considered ones and mindful leaders are a pretty rare species.
Mindfulness is a hugely beneficial set of practices that can help us cope more calmly and constructively with constant demands, busyness, pressure and stress and the deluge of distractions we face every day that can keep us in a state of continuously divided attention.
You don’t have to formally meditate to be mindful
The sheer number of leaders suffering stress and burn-out has doubled during the last decade. If you’re a leader, you’re more likely now to be lost in a maze of confusion, distraction, ambiguity, conflicting priorities, uncertainty, unrelenting pressure, stress and data-driven overload. That’s not a pretty prospect!
More and more leaders are seeking ways to put in a peak performance without sacrificing their sanity and well-being. Recent neuroscience discoveries vividly show how mindfulness training can reshape neuronal pathways, exert a beneficial and healthy influence on brain function, and help leaders find a haven of clarity, calm and focus in a maelstrom of uncertainty.
5 Mental Markers to rebalance your leadership focus
Mindful Leadership in Action introduces 5 Mental Markers and simple brain-training-tools to help you develop the mental disciplines of presence, attention, self-reflection and focus into your everyday leader activities. We’ll show you lots of ways you can be more calm, clear, present and emotionally balanced while going about your usual leadership work.
Apart from helping you to lift your performance, mindfulness can also help leaders:
• Be more present and focused for the people you lead
• Make better decisions and increase the quality of your actions
• Conduct more mindful dialogues and be conversationally present
• Manage distractions and mind-stray - ease anxiety and lessen stress
• Be more attuned to yourself physically, emotionally and cognitively
• Regain balance, curtail confusion and dampen down disruptive emotions
• Strengthen your reserves of resilience and sense of well-being
• Build your social intelligence capacity to cultivate connectivity and compassion
