"Becoming a Mindful Leader"

Mindful leadership is leading from a state of presence and then creating a culture of presence amongst your team or organization.

In this presentation, you will learn the five core competencies of mindful leadership. Then how to implement each of these into your lives and leadership styles to make you a more impactful leader. This will help you raise your level of awareness, strengthen your relationships, increase your productivity, and improve your emotional well-being. 

This interactive speech will allow you to look at leadership from a different lens. There will be a variety of questions to spark your thinking and you will walk away with actionable ideas that you can immediately put to use.
