Description

We would like to invite you to an workshop specially designed for senior executives and top management executives. The workshop will be about Positive Leadership: Mindfulness-Based Strategic Awareness Training and the session will be led by IE Professor Dr. Juan Humberto Young, Ph.D.


ABOUT THE TALK:

The integration of scientifically grounded Positive Psychology and secular practices of the ancient tradition of Mindfulness has forged a new model of leadership for already successful executives who seek to refresh their perspectives and optimize their personal performance, the performance of their teams, and the bottom-line results of their organizations. Mindful positive leaders create authentic value in all functional areas of management such as marketing, strategy, finance and information technology and develop constructive, sustainable solutions that benefit a wide range of stakeholders.

Based on over 30 years of professional experience Dr. Young has found that the most transformative leadership training is to invite individuals to examine their lives and present them an integrated approach to achieve more clarity so that they can discern what is truly important to them and how best to work towards their true valued goals. The Mindfulness-Based Strategic Awareness Training (MBSAT) is one such integrated approach. In addition to Mindfulness and Positive Psychology it draws on the latest insights in Strategic Management, Behavioral Finance, Systems Dynamics and Risk Management amongst other disciplines.

At the core of MBSAT are new research findings in Positive Psychology, Contemplative Sciences (Mindfulness) and Neurology that help us better understand human behavior and mental patterns. This has allowed developing the MBSAT training methodology that generates integrative benefits on several levels: cognitive, emotional and physical. Only when all three components are in balance can we human beings really flourish and achieve the highest levels of wellbeing and performance.

This workshop will give you an introduction to the MBSAT training methodology.
