Mindful Leadership Workshop - Advanced
Learning and practicing mindful awareness has been shown to decrease symptoms of stress, build confidence, and improve energy and enthusiasm. It has also been shown to assist leaders in facing the inevitable uncertainty and complexity of their role with a rational and calm thought process. This ability for calm under pressure in the midst of chaos is the hallmark of an influential and inspirational leader.
