MINDFUL LEADERSHIP & PRACTICES
Many businesses are incorporating Mindful Leadership training into their strategic plans and professional development because it helps employees:
• reduce stress by focusing on the present moment;
• remain calm under pressure so they can respond rather than react;
• stay healthy by increasing their resilience after a stressful situation
Studies show, some of the many benefits of Mindfulness include:
• increased health, wellness, and morale of employees;
• fewer sick days (saving organizations and corporations millions each year);
• better, more thoughtful decisions;
• more effective leadership
What Can Mindfulness Do For Your Organization?
Many of the keynotes and workshops I offer incorporate mindfulness activities and practices within them (see Minimizing Implicit Bias & Microaggressions, especially).
To specifically focus on bringing Mindfulness into your organization, choose one of the following:
Mindful Leadership training offers guided practices for conscious businesses and conscious business leaders. Mindfulness can transform leadership development to make better leaders. Experience a few guided practices to get a taste of what Mindfulness can do for you and your organization. By the end of the session, participants will have a better understanding of this ancient practice, and leave with some skills and strategies for incorporating these practices into their lives and work. It is likely they will also leave feeling less stressed and more peaceful.
Mindfulness practices can be implemented to lower stress levels and to alleviate human suffering. They can provide an opportunity for deep reflection and healing. They also allow us to reach our full potential for a meaningful life by uncovering our larger purpose, and learning to live in alignment with it. For anyone or any organization that is interested in self-empowerment, check out these practices to unlock your/your employees’ full potential.
When we are triggered by someone or by a particular experience, we become less effective at our job. Triggering situations lessen our capacity for successful communication, hinder our decision-making abilities, and increase our stress levels. Without proper training on how to remain calm, or how to find calmness after the situation, we remain highly reactive, which is unhealthy and can produce potentially disastrous results. Mindfulness practices have been shown by countless studies to be an antidote to many different forms of stress, including overcoming traumatic situations. The more mindfulness practices we have to draw on, the more likely we will find our own mindful path to health and healing. This session provides a framework for understanding our reaction/response to triggering situations, and offers several guided mindfulness practices for effectively navigating stressful situations, during, and after the situation has passed.
As many studies have shown, diversity works. In fact, organizations that attend to diversity and culturally inclusion fare much better than those that do not. Mindfulness is a powerful tool for retaining a diverse workforce. Mindfulness practices can lessen our biases and transform our interactions with others, especially across social differences. This session provides several mindfulness practices that are useful for creating an workspace where every organization member feels like they belong.
