About the course
How balanced is your life and your capacity to lead?
Management legend Peter Drucker observed a gross imbalance in education. Namely, leaders are taught to think but rarely to see. What they often don’t see most of all is themselves, how their minds work and how that influences their actions and results. This imbalance in education translates to imbalance in their lives and the systems they manage.
Mindfulness cultivates the capacity to see oneself with greater precision and clarity. It is the foundation for self-correction and adaptation. In a changing, volatile world, mindfulness is not an “extra” but a necessary survival skill.
While the first session is an ideal, but not necessary, introduction, this session emphasizes putting mindfulness skills into action. We will leave the comfort of the classroom and practice in more dynamic settings. We will explore actively observing your mind’s reactions and patterns so you can take these skills back to the office or home and use them immediately. We will also learn methods for working with strong reactions and how to metabolize them. The result is greater clarity, calm and energy.
Expect a lively, rich day full of insight.
