Mindful Leadership: Transforming Self and Inspiring Others
Applying mindful leadership to thrive in today’s challenging work environments.
The hallmark of an influential and inspirational leader is one who has the ability to comprehend how their actions and behaviours positively or negatively impact others. Mindful Leaders have the ability to create an atmosphere of calm in the midst of chaos and exponential change for themselves and others. Mindful leaders can also help the team to achieve focus and clarity, reduce stress, and develop the presence of mind to meet any number of challenges.
