An ongoing mindfulness practice cultivates authenticity, courage, and clear-seeing. It counters the tendency to freeze situations and fall back on reactive habits -- a tendency that is especially strong in times of stress and uncertainty. Mindfulness turns the challenges of leadership into opportunities for personal and professional growth.
In this video, Alan Sloan provides a step-by-step introduction to mindfulness practice as it is taught in the Shambhala tradition and discusses the topics below.
* Authentic leadership and letting go of pretense
* Appreciating uncertainty
* The importance of self-care and finding balance
* Leadership as an expression of unconditional confidence
* Bringing mindfulness and awareness to the workplace
