Description

Join Poppin and General Assembly for the first installment of our Fostering Growth and Innovation Series.

At the first event, Mindfulness for Personal and Professional Development, learn how to become more focused and creative in 2018.

We’re partnering with CULTURE LABx and Kim Nicol to bring you two interactive sessions.

Session One: Kim Nicol, Mindfulness in the Workplace
Learn what mindfulness is, and how to bring it into your workplace! This practical session will give you tools and ideas that you can start using immediately. You’ll feel more relaxed, focused, and ready for whatever comes your way. Most importantly, you will learn how to integrate mindfulness with real life, including specific tactics for dealing with interruptions and context switching.

Session Two: Marisol MacGregor, Leadership from the Inside Out

Deepen your understanding of mindfulness and how it translates to Emotional and Leadership Intelligence. This interactive segment will outline the importance of developing creativity vs. reactivity as a leader, and broadening your capacity for empathy through self-awareness and a tendency toward powerful questions.
