Mindful Leadership: The role of mindfulness in business success

Mindful Leadership: The role of mindfulness in business success

This is a past event

Mindfulness is everywhere! Schools, hospitals, sports coaches, artists and businesses are investigating secular (non-religious) mindfulness. Some bold claims have been made for this form of secular meditation such as that it can improve mental health, attention, relationships, leadership, creativity and compassion.

Dr Graeme Nixon is senior lecturer at the University of Aberdeen and programme director of the MSc Studies in Mindfulness which allows professionals from multiple contexts to apply and examine the potential of mindfulness. In this business breakfast Graeme intends to examine the potential of mindfulness for organisations and their leadership. Graeme will introduce the principles of mindfulness and research findings for business. He will also include a practical element so that participants can experience mindfulness practice - hopefully a relaxing beginning to the day!

There is no cost to attend and refreshments will be provided. Attendees will receive a certificate for one hour of continuing professional development (CPD).

This workshop is limited to 30 places, register now to guarantee your place.
