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.

They feel disconnected from their own values and overburdened. By the thousands, they seek out books on leadership skills, time management, and “getting things done,” but the techniques these volumes offer, useful as they are, don’t often don’t speak to the leader’s fundamental sense that something is missing.
