Leading from Within: Using Mindfulness to Become a Better Leader
Wednesday, February 24, 2021
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Please join the Washington Network Group when we meet with Rebecca Cassidy, founder and director of Seva Yoga, who will discuss with us "Leading from Within: Using Mindfulness to Become a Better Leader."
Think of the best managers, bosses, and leaders you have in your life. Chances are, they all had similar characteristics: good listeners, self-aware, empathetic, decisive and perhaps a bit fearless. And chances are, they were mindful leaders as well, perhaps developed through a meditation practice. In this session we will discuss what mindfulness is, how it is a skill we can develop, and how working on our mindfulness can help us become the leaders we strive to be both in the workplace and in our home lives. You'll come away with specific techniques you can use starting today to help you become a better leader.
