A workshop to help you thrive - even under pressure
with Silvia Christmann, Leadership Coach
Is stress limiting your productivity at work? Is fatigue leading you to underperform? ...when others stay calm and focused?
Mindfulness is an increasingly important part of leadership often misunderstood by those who would benefit from it most. Without it you end up reactive and below your potential.
• See mindfulness as a tool you can use anytime and anywhere
It’s a practice best understood through experience.
This workshop will demystify mindful leadership, revealing it as a simple, practical process of transforming yourself to effectively lead others.
We will explore several mindfulness techniques as well as their practical application to leadership.
The workshop will alternate between applied solo practice, reflection, and peer-to-peer discussion. You will learn tools you can use immediately and that will be valuable for your whole life.
Attending this workshop will help you:
• Feel more calm and, present and in charge
• Maintain equanimity
• Lead with integrity
• Clarify and articulate your vision and goals
• Perform effectively even in the most stressful times
• Be stress resilient
• Use mindfulness as a tool to optimize your team's efficiencies
...the result is that you will be more calm, make fewer mistakes, connect better with others and enjoy your work more.
