Mindfulness is used regularly to great effect to reduce stress and make better decisions. In this workshop, you will dig into how to become a better, more authentic leader by using mindfulness to discover your own leadership values, as opposed to trying to lead like “the expert.” This will be an interactive seminar teaching you skills such as mindful listening, how to take mindful breaks during a busy day and how to lower your own stress to make better decisions for yourself and your team.
