Principles of Mindful Leadership
This presentation is inspired by Gandhi's quote, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." This presentation will encourage the audience to reflect on how they can become better leaders in whatever leadership role they are in, whether personal or professional. It will address the importance of creating an environment where ego battles aren't driving the company down and where individuals are willing to put aside their own self-interest for the sake of the greater good. It encourages an environment where individuals are willing to appreciate the contributions of their co-workers instead of feeling threatened by them. A mindful leader is one who is able to provide constructive feedback that is balanced with a healthy dose of appreciation.
A few of the traditional and non-traditional qualities that will be explored are:
- Leading by Example
- Mindful Communication
- Balanced Emotions
