Mindful Leadership Program
Much of the existing wisdom on leadership emphasizes the leader’s ability to Influence the behaviors of others. Over the past fifty years many theories and models attempting to capture the relevant factors have been developed. In this program, we move away from the traditional objectivist approach to leadership that focuses on the leadership context and, instead, direct our attention to the “subjective experience of the leadership relationship” (Lawler, 2005). Participants will learn the importance of exploring new ways of listening, leading, responding, and innovating and to see the world in new and different ways. Through mindfulness training, participants will be able to cultivate attention and awareness that allows them to live all aspects of their lives with a greater sense of skill, connection, openness, and balance.
8-week on-site MBSR Program
The 8-week MBSR program is a unique opportunity for participants to have a highly experiential experience with mindfulness. Throughout the 8-weeks participants will participate in guided meditations, mindful movement, and small and large group discussions. There will be weekly home practice assignments that include a daily meditation practice, along with other small journaling assignments. The course will help the participants tap into the internal resources that already exist within themselves. For many, this can result in an increase in stress hardiness and resiliency. The instructor will help navigate challenges with the practice and highlight learning areas. The course is structured to help the participant find ways to cultivate mindfulness into their daily lives so that they can receive the benefits far beyond the 8-week course.
