In this fast-paced world, as a manager, you have to deal with complex situations, which require you to have greater leadership and to tap into your inner resources.

Conscious leadership is a contextual approach that requires regular, embodied practice to chart a personal path to increased leadership.

Conscious leadership is a way of being,that integrates conceptual frameworks and personal resources specific to each individual.

You still have untapped internal capabilities and resources that, once uncovered, will enable you not only to navigate this rapidly changing environment more skillfully, but also to become a full-fledged transformation agent and change leader.

The 7 sessions of our "Mindfulness for Leaders" program

Mindfulness: theory and neuroscience

Participants will discuss the scientific basis for the effectiveness of mindfulness in the workplace. The link between neuroscience and the art of management and leadership will be established. Participants will self-assess their level of mindfulness in order to create an initial indicator for the course: Mindful Attention Awareness Scale.

Emotional intelligence: Understanding and managing emotions at work

A presentation of the concepts of emotional intelligence according to Daniel Goleman will allow to create the framework for learning. This will be reinforced by an exploration of several studies that show the role of emotional intelligence in managerial competencies. An introduction to 3 mindfulness practices will allow managers to develop their emotional intelligence. They will commit to practice between sessions.
