About the course

In this course we introduce mindfulness as a mental skill necessary for effective leadership and management roles in modern times.

With ever-changing needs and pressures of the modern corporate world, being a leader who is present-minded, self-aware, calm, composed, and tolerant in the face of uncertainty can be a strategic advantage. Mindfulness-based leadership skills have been shown to be more effective in the modern business world than conventional skills. Mindfulness — the ability to be intentionally present — is a learnable mental capacity. Regular practice of mindfulness skills cultivates non-reactive habit patterns, essential to navigate the ups and downs so common to the business domain.

This session offers you an opportunity, through experiential exercises, to learn these skills and how to apply them in your current professional and personal roles. Participants will gain the insights and skills that will allow them to become more mindful leaders.

Studies have found that mindfulness techniques can improve:

  • Executive functioning
  • Emotional regulation
  • Working memory
  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the role of mindfulness skills in effective leadership and management
  • Learn neuro-biological impact of mindfulness training on specific areas of the brain
  • Identify and explore ways to apply these skills in your professional roles
  • Continue working on mindfulness skills in a systematic manner to establish long-term healthier mental habits
