Creating a mentally healthy and emotionally safe work environment starts with mindful leadership. Mindfulness practice trains managers and leaders to open up a space where they can more readily choose their response under pressure rather than reacting on autopilot. This means they’re more likely to regulate their emotions, empathize, and view situations from multiple perspectives—all key to creating a mentally healthy workplace.
You’ll walk away from this webinar with the following:
- An understanding of how mindfulness affects key leadership traits, including resilience, collaboration, and focus
- Knowledge about how mindfulness training can prevent leaders from falling into traps that lead to less healthy workplaces
- Practical strategies to engage managers in mindfulness training within your organization
