Mindful Leadership, 3-Day Course (stand alone, or part of Mindfulness Practitioner Certification)

Event number: 17629
21 CPD hours
Presenter(s): Liana Taylor, Clinical Psychologist, Director - Australian Institute of Applied Mindfulness

A comprehensive framework for understanding, guiding and leading individuals and groups from a mindfulness perspective.

Every person in a leadership position reaches toward wisdom, is expected to have wisdom, and wants to be wise, and yet, it is not always easy to articulate what wisdom is or how one develops it.   Leadership is about vision, the insight that cultivates wise action, and the ability to guide others to their full potential.  

Health professions, people in leadership and education are in these positions of influence, and want to be wise.

In this Mindful Leadership course you will see clearly how mindfulness helps us understand and lean into our strengths and those of others, bringing clarity to areas of challenge. The more we see clearly, the more we develop our emotional intelligence, capacity to respect others, and ability to lead authentically.

As with all mindfulness training you will seek ways to be more aware, accepting of what is, stable of mind, focussed and decisive. There are few teachings more eye opening and affirming than exploring our own personality style.  Far from boxing us into a mold, having models to help us be mindful with real strengths, hopes and drivers, as well as areas of struggle, for ourselves and others, can be profoundly enlightening and life changing.

“75% of careers derail due to lack of EI: inability to handle interpersonal problems; unsatisfactory team leadership during difficulty or conflict; inability to adapt to change or elicit trust” – Center for Creative Leadership
