About this Event

Seven Practices for a Mindful Leader

Learn how the inner work of mindfulness meets the outer work of leadership and business as a force for positive change. This mindfulness-based emotional intelligence training integrates self-awareness, communication skills, and cutting-edge neuroscience with depth and accessibility for leaders. This workshop will draw from Marc Lesser's acclaimed book Seven Practices of a Mindful Leader: Lessons from Google and a Zen Monastery Kitchen.

Become a more authentic, mindful leader by optimizing:

  • Your leadership presence
  • Your ability to thrive in the midst of change and challenges

This highly interactive training is structured around seven core mindfulness practices:

  • Love the work
  • Do the work
  • Don’t be an expert
  • Connect to your pain
  • Connect to the pain of others
  • Depend on others
  • Keep making it simpler
  • Your power and your ability to empower others

Marc Lesser is a CEO, Zen teacher, and author who offers trainings and talks worldwide. He has led mindfulness and emotional intelligence programs at many of the world’s leading businesses and organizations, including Google, SAP, Genentech, and Twitter.

This daylong workshop is presented by A Mindful Society and ZBA Associates Inc., and sponsored by Mindful Gateway Consulting.
