Mindfulness Based Leadership
People Managers & Leaders
Great leaders see things clearly. They are aware of themselves, others and the world around them. They are able to direct their awareness internally: aware of their thoughts, feelings and values, they are better able to manage their own mind-states and reactions. They are also able to direct their awareness externally. Some people may come to their leadership tasks with these capacities already well-developed. But mindful leadership strengthens and develops these qualities. The curriculum of Mindfulness Based Leadership is based on the book 'Mindfulness Based Leadership: The Art of Being a Leader, not becoming One'.
Leaders will be able to:
• incorporate Mindfulness into their Leadership Competencies
• develop self-awareness, self-management and social awareness.
• foster a culture of “Mindfulness practice” in self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness and kindness at work
• learn and apply strategies to deal with and manage emotions and facilitate decision making, conflict management.
