Developing effective leaders is critical to the long term success of any company. Every year, corporations invest significant time, money and resources on leadership identification and development initiatives. Yet many companies report that the plateauing or derailment of high potential managers and the failure of newly promoted leaders is still a significant problem. What's going wrong?
We believe that the foundation for developing grounded, agile, and insightful leaders lies in cultivating their capacity for present moment awareness, both of themselves and of the people and situations they encounter. Also referred to as mindfulness, this quality enables leaders to put aside their personal biases and sensitivities, and apply themselves and their talents fully to skillfully address the challenges they face. Mindfulness enables leaders to learn more quickly, build stronger relationships, manage stress more effectively, and adapt quickly and creatively to changing circumstances and expectations.
Mindfulness training has been used extensively in both medicine and psychology for decades, but it is just beginning to be harnessed for leadership development. We incorporate the cultivation of mindfulness into all of our leadership development practices. We have adapted powerful established methodologies to provide the maximum benefit to our corporate clients.
