PC07: Mindfulness and Leadership Excellence

Heather Stang, MA, Frederick Meditation Center, Frederick, MD

In a world where multi-tasking, digital distractions and continuous partial attention are the norm, it is challenging for 21st century leaders to find the time, energy and creativity to innovate. Fortunately, the practice of mindfulness – paying attention to the present moment with an attitude of open awareness – can wire your brain for leadership excellence despite the chaos. During this workshop, you will learn simple mindfulness-based exercises that will cultivate the four fundamentals of leadership excellence: focus, clarity, creativity and compassion. Learn to lead from a place of choice, based on your values and expertise, rather than reactivity. You may also experience better health, a deeper connection with others, and a greater satisfaction with life – at work and at home.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define mindfulness and give examples of formal and informal practices
  • Discuss the benefits of practicing mindfulness for leadership excellence
  • Integrate mindfulness-based techniques at work to cultivate focus, clarity, creativity and compassion
