The Mindful Leader

Tuesday February 12th, 2019 | 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Venue: Taunton Racecourse

Traditional styles of leadership are not working, a global study by the Gallop Organisations has shown that within organisations only 13% of the workforce are actively engaged, 24% are actively disengaged and 63% are not engaged. Mindful and Compassionate Leadership are recent trends but what do these theories offer leaders and the people they lead?

This 1-day Mindful Leader masterclass combines the latest insights from neuropsychology and emotional intelligence. The morning explores self leadership, the emotional intelligence components of Self Awareness and Self Management. The afternoon session then moves into Social Intelligence, exploring how mindfulness develops critical leadership skills such as empathy and compassion. We will also explore how to bring mindfulness into relationships and communication.

 – Those currently within a leadership role and those new to leadership.
