About the course
Develop new skills and perspectives to lead your team and organization mindfully through an unprecedented period of crisis. This virtual program will help you to manage strong reactions, center yourself and connect with others, even from a distance.
Enhance virtual skill development, resilience and understanding as we collectively navigate this historical crisis. This approach follows best practices of learning neuroscience, interleaving learning and practice in a “real time” setting, resulting in more effective personal and organizational results.
The entire program will run over a four-week period. Live virtual classes will meet via Zoom. Between live virtual classes, participants will practice daily exercises, apply learning in real-time in their own settings, and check-in with peers and instructors via an online learning platform.
Embark on a personal leadership journey that is designed for leaders at any level who need to strengthen their resilience and learn to lead with intention. Grow your capacity for self-management so you can engage and communicate more mindfully, generating more effective personal and organizational results.
- Bring your own personal leadership challenges and work on them directly through experiential learning.
- Identify and transform personal triggers and habits of attention that influence your ability to take effective action in a crisis.
- Engage in exercises - inspired by meditation, yoga, improvisation and acting - all designed to help you observe your own leadership in action.
There are no prerequisites for participation. Advanced preparation includes:
Reflective Writing: Leadership Challenges
The selected case studies, readings, assessments, and exercises will be sent prior to the program for all participants to read and prepare for discussion on the first day of the course.
