Finding the Space to Lead

Clarity, focus, creativity and compassion: these are the attributes of mindful leadership.

About this Event

Organizational leaders are invited to fully explore the mindful leadership training we need to cultivate leadership excellence. The sessions invite leaders to train the mind just as an athlete leverages specialized training to train the body.

In a online setting, leaders are guided through a series of systematic mindful leadership practices, leadership excellence reflections, and everyday applications (e.g mindful meetings, skillful decision-making, leading by inspiration).
