Mindful Leadership Training Options

Mindful Leadership Workshop – 2 hours to half day

Mindful Leadership Workshops are an experiential 2 hours to half-day training to give you an overview of mindful leadership.
Workshops work well to introduce leadership / management teams to Mindfulness – what it is and why the research shows it matters. People get a chance to sample lots of different practices and walk away with practical tools that they can use day to day to cope more effectively.

Mindfulness and Business Leadership Intensives – 1 and 2 Day programmes

Intensives are deeply engaging 1 / 2 day programmes designed to radically transform the way leaders/managers work and lead. They are bespoke programmes to fit your specific business objectives and provide an opportunity to pause, reflect on current practice, gain insight and open perspectives. Participants walk away refreshed, with renewed vigour and skill to inspire and lead their people.

Full Mindful Leadership Course – 8 modules and one offsite retreat day

The full 8 module Mindful Leadership course is most effective when rolled out over 8 sequential weeks; with sessions of 75 – 90mins duration plus one full offsite day.  However, some organisations prefer to schedule it over half or full days. Participants are asked to commit to a short daily practice for the duration of the programme.

An Emotional Intelligence Assessment & Coaching – ECR™ is an optional part. Joanne is a fully certified and licensed coach.

Reported outcomes from the Mindful Leadership Course show significant improvements across many dimensions.

Lots of insight and good reflection, really well worth doing, we believe these core principles are even more relevant in these times.
