The course is divided into 4 modules. Each module focuses on a different aspect of mindfulness in the context of modern leadership.
01 What is Mindfulness?
The first module introduces some of the key theories around mindfulness and what impact the practice can have. You will also learn some short and simple techniques that will help you develop your own mindfulness exercises and 'experiencing the moment'.
02 Introducing Mind Time Practices
The second module develops some simple ten-minute practices that our research tells us can enhance three key leadership capacities: personal resilience, effective collaboration with others, agility in complex and uncertain environments.
03 The Application to Leadership
The third module explores the specifics of the 'Mindful Leadership' and highlights key findings from the Mindful Leader research conducted by Hult Ashridge.
