Mindful Leadership in Action looks at what it means to lead mindfully. It explores the idea of mindfulness as a practice and takes a practical, every-day approach to introduce some simple brain-training tools to help leaders identify ways to incorporate mental disciplines like presence, awareness and focused-attention into their everyday activities – without having to set-aside time for formal meditation.

In naming this program I was fully aware of the pun that many leaders think of mindfulness as “inaction’ – as mainly meditative, inactive, passive and possibly impractical. But as you’ll discover, you can do it “in action” just as well.  Ie: you don’t have to meditate to be mindful. A raft of recent neuroscience discoveries show that targeted brain-training exercises can rewire key brain areas connected with attention, focus, self-control, compassion and calming – and there are many ways to build mindfulness practice into your working-week minus-meditation.

If you’re looking for ways to put in a peak performance at work without sacrificing your sanity, humanity and well-being, Mindful Leadership in Action may well provide a useful starter-platform to help you to re-think and re-invigorate your leadership.

Positive Performance Conversations looks at ways to deliver difficult feedback to low performers more sensitively and constructively.  It provides tools and a framework of carefully-crafted conversational formulas to help you feel more comfortable and competent to tackle touchy topics.

Positive Performance Conversations works on a simple principle: focus on the positives you want to see, not the negatives you don’t.  Focusing less on what's wrong and more on what’s expected creates a different emotional climate that enables you to give difficult feedback in constructive ways. It helps to keep defensiveness at bay so they hear what you have to say. While the focus is mainly on difficult performers, many principles and tools in this 1-day coaching clinic can also be used to coach, support and encourage good performers too.

Those who’ve been along to my programs previously know that I try to provide a relaxed, safe and comfortable learning environment to try out new concepts and tools – and these programs continue that tradition. I’d be delighted to welcome you or some of your other colleagues at one of these minds-on learning forums.  Either way, much appreciated if you’d help to pass on this information to others in your wider networks…  Cheers! Bill
