Workshop facilitator

Those who are currently in leadership roles or who aspire to leadership.

There will be no more than 20 in the workshop. This ensures that the group operates at its optimum and that individual concerns can be addressed

Successful leaders learn to manage themselves first. Only then are they in a position to take balanced decisions that are beneficial for the organisation they lead and all those concerned. Mindfulness is a practice that increases our self-awareness and strengthens our concentration. It also allows us to focus the mind on the tasks at hand and increases our confidence through feelings of calmness in the face of unusual stress.

This workshop develops mindfulness initially through the practise of meditation. It then takes this practice into situations in which leaders find themselves every day. Skills in using techniques based on mindfulness are developed that give leaders options for managing a wide range of challenges that are commonly confronted in organisational settings.

If you are a leader who aspires to inspire others through your example, then this workshop is designed for you. This workshop will help you:

. Learn the basics of mindfulness meditation
. Acquire an awareness of self and others that gives you an array of options for managing common leadership dilemmas
. Provide you with the ability to focus your energy on your priority responsibilities as a leader
. Increase your discernment of interpersonal dynamics and allows you to maintain balance in your resolution of differences and conflicts
. Make your decision-making more confident and evidence-based
. Improve your powers of observation and information collection and processing necessary for effective leadership
. Allow you to focus your concentration in order to deliberate effectively on issues needing your consideration
