‘The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence; it is to react with yesterday’s logic!’ Peter Drucker

As the impact of the pandemic continues to have a profound effect on people there is a need for a different style of leadership, Authentic Leadership, building trust and compassion within the workforce. This is a great opportunity for leaders and managers to develop a compassionate style of leadership and by doing so embed a deeper more meaningful workplace culture in their organisation or business resulting in increased focus, engagement and productivity.

This 6-week course is an introduction to practical mindfulness as a leadership technique. Authenticity comes with a deeper self-awareness and self-management of thoughts and emotions. Over the 6 weeks participants are introduced to explore and develop the skill of being present and deepening their awareness in the moment. Each week there is a theme of focus and participants are expected to introduce a mindfulness practice into their daily life.

Mindfulness is about adopting an attentive, non- judgmental awareness of the present moment and awareness of the world around you.

Learning outcomes:

Increased self-understanding and self-management

A greater understanding of others

Flexible and effective interaction with others

Increased leadership confidence and clarity

Increase in productivity and focus

Reduced levels of stress

An understanding of the neuroscience behind mindfulness


 The course is delivered via zoom meetings for one hour each week (6 weeks). Places are limited. It is a practical and interactive course where participants are expected to apply skills into their work/ home life. Support is given between sessions and all mindfulness exercise recordings shared with participants. Participants are expected to attend all sessions for optimum benefit.
