Finding the Space to Lead – A Practical Guide to
Mindful Leadership© Workshop
May 4th 2018, 9:30 am to 4:00 pm
Within each of us is the potential to lead with excellence and influence in ways that make positive differences in our organizations, our families, and our communities.
But it’s hard to reach our potential for excellence when we are so busy trying to stay current that there is no time to focus on the big picture. As we scurry through back-to-back meetings, fend off constant “emergency” interruptions, and scramble to react to change, we also lose our ability to respond with clarity, creativity and compassion.
In this daylong workshop at the Minnesota Arboretum, you will learn to cultivate the innate abilities of your mind, and approach everyday situations with greater authenticity and focus. The Institute’s day long training has been successfully used with organizations around the world for more than a decade.
Using the curricula described in Janice Marturano’ s international best-selling book, Finding the Space to Lead, you will leave the workshop with the tools to help you incorporate mindful leadership training at work, at home, and in every aspect of life.
This workshop will cover:
- An in-depth exploration of Mindfulness and Mindful Leadership
- How training the mind cultivates leadership excellence
- Mindfulness meditation instruction
- How to take a Purposeful Pause in the midst of a busy day
- How to Mindfully Communicate
- How to use the book Finding the Space to Lead as a resource for going forward
Feedback from past Finding the Space to Lead Workshop participants:
Kristin, Teacher, “Having now worked for several weeks on being more mindful, and in the moment, it’s been a gift. I’m less stressed, even though the stressors in my life (end of school year as a teacher, selling and buying a house, my children’s boundless energy) have certainly not decreased. I find myself with more time spent on my students as a teacher, more invested in what they are saying instead of my mind wandering off to other things I need to do. In faculty meetings, I’ve taken a much more proactive stance on “how can we accomplish this?” as opposed to “why can’t this get done?”. I’ve also spent less time on my computer and iphone, and more time interacting with those around me. Thank you so much!!!”
Principal, Bain Capital, “Great content. Very important investment in our team. Hugely appreciative of senior support to get it done.”
VP, Bain Capital, “I really enjoyed the topic of mindfulness – very interesting and have started focusing on it personally since the offsite.”
Bonnie, The Mindful Classroom, “The FTSL workshop was a great day. Janice is incredibly personable and she makes mindfulness exercises accessible. It was clear folks trusted her to take risks and try the practices. Janice’s skillful facilitation created a safe space for folks to feel comfortable sharing their experience.”
SVP, Bain Capital, “I see this as the firm investing in us both for our personal and professional careers, which is really remarkable.”
E. C. Maddock, “It was a privilege to attend the Finding the Space to Lead Workshop and I am very grateful to the support from the 1440 Foundation for enabling me to do so. Janice is so good at what she does and it was just a pleasure to watch her in action. I think that her and the Institute’s objective of bringing mindfulness practice to corporations and C-Suites merits all the support that it can get.”
