Mindfulness isn't a practice you encounter all that much in the rush-’n-hurry of workplaces yet it actually underscores so many things that matter for good leadership. Work, for many of us, seems to be a place where action is valued over reflection; where we prefer speedy decisions over more considered ones and mindful leaders are a pretty rare species.

Mindfulness is a hugely beneficial set of practices that can help us cope more calmly and constructively with constant demands, busyness, pressure and stress and the deluge of distractions we face every day that can keep us in a state of continuously divided attention. 

What are the qualities that define a mindful leader?

"I came along to learn how to manage personal stressors in high-workload environments. I enjoyed the insightful conversations and relaxed nature of a small group and went away with a much better understanding of how to incorporate mindfulness into leadership life at work and elsewhere." Tim G, Qld Gov

Mindful Leadership in Action…

…looks at what it means and how to lead mindfully.

You don’t have to formally meditate to be mindful. We’ll show you lots of ways you can be more calm, clear, present and emotionally balanced while going about your usual leadership work.

Mindful Leadership in Action introduces 5 Mental Markers and simple brain-training-tools to develop the mental disciplines of presence, attention, self-reflection and focus into your everyday leader activities. Apart from helping you to lift your performance, mindfulness can also help leaders:

x      Make better decisions and increase the quality of your actions

x      Be more present and focused for the people you lead

x      Manage distractions and mind-stray – ease anxiety and lessen stress

x      Regain balance, curtail confusion and dampen down disruptive emotions

● Try-out some simple techniques you can use back at work

● Complimentary in-depth Mindful Leadership in Action Toolkit

● Quality learning & materials at very reasonable rates
