Event description
Learn and practice the foundations of Mindful Leadership. Lead above the line: improve self-awareness, emotional agility & mental fitness

About this Event

Our working environments are becoming increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA).

Leading change and the capacity to connect are therefore primary leadership competencies required today.

Neither is easy. They require us to level up and develop resilience, agility, empathy and self-awareness.

Change brings up fear, resistance, insecurity and reactivity.

In order to help move people beyond these regressive states of mind, leaders need to shift out of reactive and into adaptive style of leadership. They need to develop their own resilience and emotional intelligence. The capacity for empathy and the ability to accept their own vulnerability around the challenges they face are key competencies needed to be able to meet the demands of complexity and unpredictability of leading change.

"Opportunities for leadership are all around us. The capacity for leadership is deep within us." Madeleine Albright

Research tells us that when leaders do not manage stress effectively, more than 50% of their employees believe their leader is either harmful or irrelevant to their job and the entire organization's performance. Yet, when leaders are adept at managing stress, only about 10% of their employees harbor such negative opinions.

When asked what has the most significant impact on their level of engagement, 37% of employees reported that it is the quality of leadership, in particular at the senior level.

During this 1/2 day workshop, Maya will share her model of Mindful Leadership and introduce some key ideas and tools to help you get back in touch with your leadership potential and gain a better understanding of how to live and lead above the line.

Mindful Leaders are calm and empathic leaders who know how to manage themselves in times of stress. They are resilient, open and know how to get better engagement and more productivity out of their people. They are in touch with a sense of meaning and enjoyment in their role.

Principal learning outcomes will be around exploring how to improve:

  • Personal clarity and focus
  • Self-awareness
  • Self-monitoring and stress management skills
  • Mental fitness and emotional resilience
  • Mental and emotional agility
  • Enhanced empathy and interpersonal skills
  • Deep listening skills and postponement of unconscious bias.

"In more than 30 years of research, we've found that increasing mindfulness increases charisma and productivity, decreases burnout and accidents, and increases creativity, memory, attention, positive affect, health, and even longevity. When mindful, we can take advantage of opportunities and avert the dangers that don't yet exist. This is true for the leader and the led.”

Ellen Langer, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University

Here is what previous participants have to say:

"I love working you, Maya. You are so thoughtful and so professional. The types of subjects and the types of concepts and techniques that are discussed might be daunting to some people but you put them at ease with a wonderful balance of care, aspiration, emotion, science and reality. I would 100% recommend these workshops to other leaders and their teams. They would learn a lot that will help them enjoy their lives, enjoy their work and discover many positives along the way. They will also gain productivity and engagement with their teams. I would also tell them that they would be working with an accomplished and experienced professional who is very easy to deal with."

Michael Brook, Creative Industries Manager, ATEED

"I LOVED the whole presentation. Great style and speed – there was a lot more detail we could have explored however as an overview and introduction it was very worthwhile. I have already used the 5 Step Empathy Practice many times, STOP is featuring many times daily and I’m truly putting focus to the space between the stimulus and my response. I have also taken a lot from the “thoughts are not facts” practice as I am a bit of an over thinker during times when my brain is overloaded, and, I will now refer to the light that I cast rather than the shadow; so simple but very profound. I also found the explanation of our different lives within our life extremely useful and I can see now those times where I may have moved from one into another. " Hannah Speedy, People and Performance business partner, Auckland Council
