TRAINING DESCRIPTION

Inherent to the role, leaders influence and impact the lives of individuals and systems. Leaders can be found throughout various levels and sections of an organization, from influencing a handful of people to influencing a whole organization and community. Leadership involves a great amount of responsibly, service, and commitment which can be incredibly fulfilling and empowering, while also can be quite taxing and overwhelming. Mindful leadership concepts and applied skills and practices have emerged as a way to support leaders’ well-being, sustainability, and effectiveness in their work and personal lives. This training is an introduction to the application of mindful leadership, especially for leaders who seek to create and support sustainable and thriving organizations that aim to increase and embody diversity, inclusivity, and equity.
