Mindful Leadership in the Modern World
Presented by Clif Smith and GigNow
As the world around us grows more complex every day, it’s increasingly difficult to pay attention to what truly matters — at work and in our personal lives. If you aspire to be a transformative leader, cultivating mindfulness is an important step on that journey. In addition to helping leaders better navigate complex situations, mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress, improve focus and performance, increase collaboration, as well as self-awareness and empathy.
In this free webinar led by Clif Smith, Ernst & Young Americas Mindfulness Leader and EY Global Mindfulness Network Leader, you will learn to:
• Demystify mindfulness
• Discuss the neuroscience and benefits of mindfulness practices
• Learn several exercises for enhancing mental focus, empathy and resilience
• Create the initial conditions for improving emotional intelligence and well-being despite complex and demanding work environments
• Touch on ways we can respond mindfully to the natural anxiety and fear that may arise due to the situation surrounding the coronavirus
