How can mindful leadership training enhance focus, clarity, creativity, resilience and compassion?

Janice L. Marturano, Founder and Executive Director, Institute for Mindful Leadership explains

Welcome to the Institute for Mindful Leadership, a non-profit organization. We offer retreats and workshops that train the mind’s innate capability to be focused, see with clarity, cultivate creativity and embody compassion. Just as we understand that there are innate capacities of our bodies that can be trained to make us more resilient, flexible and stronger, we now know from neuroscience research that there is universal training we can experience that can cultivate and strengthen our mind’s capacity. Mindful Leadership training is fitness for the mind. With dedication and practice, you can transform yourself, your organization and your community. Join us at one of our upcoming retreats or workshops, or contact us at for information about customized training for your organization.

Winner of 2014 Nautilus Award

Are you facing another “crazy busy” day? Sometimes “leader” seems to mean “person who deals with problems nonstop from morning till night.” What if you could hit the “pause” button on your day, step back, and meet your challenges with a sense of space and clear focus? And what if you had a way not just of “getting things done,” but ensuring that what does get done connects with your deepest values?

Clarity, focus, creativity, and compassion: these are the fundamentals of mindful leadership. In this plainspoken, accessible guide, Janice Marturano, a senior executive with decades of experience in Fortune 500 corporations, explains how to integrate the practice of mindfulness-meditation and self-awareness-with effective techniques of management and mentorship.
