Mindful Leadership with Mark Thurston

Please register under “Workshops” for this event.

In this workshop you will explore the way in which mindfulness – as a way of being in the world – can profoundly impact your capacity to be an effective leader. (And, we are all leaders, whether or not we hold a particular title within an organization.) You will examine and personally assess some of the qualities of leadership that have been shown to expand with mindfulness practice – for example, emotional intelligence, resilience, hope, problem-solving, attentiveness, and creativity. And you will have the chance to consider some of the newer leadership models that are particularly compatible with mindfulness: Transformational Leadership, Servant Leadership, and Resonant Leadership. And finally, you will have the opportunity to consider an approach to leadership that is especially relevant to yogic practice and philosophy: Self-Leadership – that is, the application of leadership methods to your own “internal organization.”
