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?

“Gave me good practical tools to improve my mindfulness and cope with high-demand situations. Biggest learning was applying the 5 Mental Markers in a tough situation after the course. It’s been very useful. Thanks again for another great course!” Penny S - Program Manager Qld Health

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 without necessarily setting-aside time to formally meditate. This program can help you to:

·       Lift your level of clarity, focus, purpose and attention

·       Be more present for the people you lead

·       Make better decisions and monitor mind-wandering

·       Take-away focused-attention tools to train your brain to be mindful

·       Strengthen your reserves of resilience and sense of well-being

·       Reduce stress and be more calm, connected, balanced and even-minded

·       Conduct more mindful dialogues and be conversationally present

·       Tune in to yourself physically, emotionally and cognitively

·       Apply our mindfulness dash-board to measure where you are

"I wanted to learn what mindful leadership was all about. This course helped me focus more on what that is and how to do it. It gave me new  insights and I learnt strategies to improve my focus to achieve better outcomes with my leadership." Donald T - Qld Transport Manager

"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."
