lead with calm, clarity and focus
Contemplative Leadership Training
Contemplative Leadership Training
The kind of leadership required today is different than what was needed in the past. At the confluence of a global pandemic and the urgent call to address systemic racism, we are at a critical and defining moment that requires a thoughtful response. This moment needs leaders who can engage in difficult conversations about implicit bias and inequities in the workplace with compassion and intention.
Contemplative practices include mindfulness, meditation, centering prayer, yoga, and other reflective practices, which enables leaders to respond to the reality of constant change from a place of measured calm, clarity, and focus, to create a safe environment for all employees. It’s no longer about doing but about leadership that evolves out of being.
Benefits of Training
Having worked closely with executive leaders for over 20 years, Thulani knows how important resilience is for effective leadership. Read Thulani’s dissertation summary on contemplative practice in leadership here. Her evidence-based approach rooted in mindful inquiry increases self-awareness, empowers decision-making, and enhances productivity. This leads to reduced work stress and anxiety, less absenteeism and turnover, and revenue growth. Other benefits include:
- Higher quality thinking
- Improved emotional, physical, and mental energy
