Course Detail: P_MINDLEAD - Mindful Leadership

Mindful Leadership is about training the mind to boost attention and concentration, have more clarity and focus, be more innovative and improve your relationships. This two session Mindful Leadership course will introduce you to practical tools and techniques for implementing mindfulness at work. During each class, you will have the opportunity to practice various forms of mindfulness meditation, learn the core competencies of Mindful leadership, and discuss strategies for being more calm, clear-minded, and emotionally aware in the workplace.

The concepts of Mindfulness, slowing down, learning to meditate and focus on the present moment may seem at odds with many corporate cultures that put emphasis on speed and achieving goals.  However, mindfulness research is convincing many companies that training managers to learn how to be more reflective, open, and emotionally aware will have a positive impact on employees and the bottom line.

People who practice mindfulness at work report an improved ability to communicate clearly and react more appropriately to stressful situations. They also report a better ability to handle workplace conflict, improved teamwork, and a better ability to "think out of the box". 

Mindfulness practice can help leaders become more adaptable, flexible and open to new ways of listening, leading, responding, and connecting with others.  Cultivating attention and awareness through mindfulness provides a new way for leaders to increase productivity, customer satisfaction, and differentiate their team, or organization in the marketplace.

The University of Southern Maine is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.
