In a world of flux and rapid change, it is easy to find ourselves firmly clasping to mindsets and routines to create illusions of control. Such rigidity can result in a host of problems such as tunnel vision, greater stress, reduced physical health, and difficulty navigating complex systems. We may find that "urgent" but less important issues get in the way of our primary goals. We might define a situation too narrowly at the time, failing to realize a more creative and effective solution. Or our emotional reaction to a situation might quickly cloud our judgment, and we drop our attention from what is most at stake.
While there may be a human tendency to operate "on default", we always have choices in how we react to our environment. But these choices are predicated on mindfulness—our ability to employ full and conscious awareness of ourselves, other people and the context in which we live and work. Our ability to fully employ this awareness has a powerful impact on everything we do, the people around us and the environment. It is particularly important for leaders and managers.
Mindful awareness is not innate—it is something we need to learn and practice. During this workshop we will explore mindfulness as a tool to reduce automatic thinking and acting to improve our work and life effectiveness. Using experiential learning techniques, this program will introduce ways to increase everyday flexibility and creativity. Participants will learn how to use mindfulness as a powerful tool for effectiveness in leadership, management, teamwork, coaching….virtually any organizational challenge.
