As an organiser of New Zealand's first Mindful Leaders conference in March 2018 in Wellington I'm delighted to invite you along. “Creating a new vision for leadership” the conference will bring together leaders and aspiring leaders from New Zealand and the world, to share experiences, develop skills, and create a new vision for leadership and awareness of the importance of mindfulness in all aspects of life.
With a goal to educate and empower individuals and organisations to effect change at all levels of society, Mindful Leaders draws on the latest research in neuroscience, wellbeing, resilience, leadership and organisational cultures. It will share practical examples of the application of mindfulness-based approaches across a range of organisational settings. This includes business, government, community, social enterprise, healthcare, education, community, arts, and sports.
Mindful Leadership with Jess
The modern world is evolving at an amazing rate, the technological age has changed the face of how we live and work, never has resilience been so important. The world moves faster now than it’s ever done, we are working more hours, our lives are busier, expectations are higher and the pace of life has quickened to a point where we’re struggling to keep up.
In a world where burnout is becoming more prevalent we are looking for a cost effective solution to ensure our performance is sustainable. Many big corporate have been proactive in this space and are already using mindful programmes including; Google, Apple, Ford, Proctor & Gamble and General Mills.
This evolution has brought about a required change in the way we lead. Research is suggesting that emotional intelligence (EI or EQ) is now more critical than intellect and IQ. Learn the new skills fundamental not just to your own progression as a leader but to ensure your employees flourish and are able to achieve their potential. It's less about instructing and more about inspiring these days and leading and managing ourselves has become just as important as being a leader of people.
