mindfulness leadership training
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 sensations, they are better able to manage their own mind-states and reactions. They are also able to direct their awareness externally. They have an objectivity that reduces the natural human tendency towards “confirmation bias” – the tendency we all have to favour information that confirms our own preconceptions or hypotheses. And they are aware of others. Great leaders have a high level of concern for their people and associates and take an active interest in their well-being and development.
Whatever else may be going on, great leaders remain true to themselves and that authenticity provides them with an essential aura of trustworthiness. Their people, colleagues, customers and other stakeholders know where they stand with them.
Some people come to their leadership tasks with these capacities already well-developed. But we know from research that whatever the starting point, mindfulness training strengthens and develops these qualities.
Mindful leaders are self-aware, ethical, clear-sighted and relationally transparent. They are trusted and they are effective.
Our Mindful Leadership training course can be delivered on a one-to-one basis or to groups.
