About the Event
The field of education has become increasingly complex. Our quickly changing landscape puts exceptional demands on school and district leaders. Navigating through tumultuous times requires leaders to embrace their own personal resilience to increase their understanding of the changing/critical needs of the professionals and communities they serve. Educators and educational leaders are working harder than ever yet are expressing feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and on the edge of burnt out.
Mindful leadership consists of more than a few breathing strategies and active listening skills. Good leaders become great leaders as they look inward and invest in their own personal development and well-being. Leadership success depends on how well we interact, collaborate, and communicate. This workshop will teach you ways to integrate the practice of mindfulness into the practical issues and skills needed as a leader: effective communication, focus and clarity, creative problem solving, improved collaboration, cultivation of an inclusive environment, and more. Learn how to build trust, inspire performance, create strong relationships with your team, and manage challenging situations with more grace and ease. Join in exploring the science supporting mindful leadership as well as how to cultivate practices so you can best connect with the leadership skills you already possess.
