Leading Differently: The Power of a Purposeful Pause© Retreat
In the Leading Differently retreat, mindfulness meditation practice and practical applications of mindful leadership are experienced as we explore the ways in which our ability to create space in our day affects our ability to lead-whether we are leading a team, our family or our own lives. We look at our personal filters and our autopilot tendencies, as well as the distract-ability of the mind. Through meditation, gentle stretching and practical daily applications, we will begin to see how we can lead with excellence – focused, clear, and compassionate.

Cultivating Leadership Presence through Mindfulness© Retreat
Cultivating Leadership Presence through Mindfulness© is a 4 day residential retreat that invites organizational leaders to explore mindfulness meditation training in the context of leadership excellence. The retreat invites leaders to ‘train the mind’ just as an athlete leverages specialized training to ‘train the body’. In a small group setting, leaders are guided through a series of systematic mindful leadership practices, leadership excellence reflections, and everyday applications (e.g mindful meetings, skillful decision-making, leading by inspiration). As we explore mindful leadership, we learn to cultivate our ability to focus, see past our own filters, be more innovative and embody compassion. After the retreat, participants are supported in the integration of their training, and the development of a meditation practice, through several weeks of post-retreat e-mails from the Institute and the Institute’s Mindfulness Meditations for Leaders (c) CD. This retreat has been taught to leaders from around the world since 2006.
