“Mindfulness as a Career Strategy: How to Use Centuries-Old Techniques to Enhance Your Leadership Presence Today” with Emily Bennington
To be an effective leader of yourself and others, you have to understand there is a cause and effect relationship between what you think and what you do. And since what you do is the driver of your results, if you want those results to be better you have to go to the source. This means you must shift your thinking in a way that takes full responsibility for how you experience your own life. In this 45-minute presentation (including Q&A), career author Emily Bennington will show you how to do just that through a four-step process designed to help you respond to your circumstances – whatever they are – from an empowered place, rather than simply reacting to the chaos that surrounds us all. You’ll learn specific techniques to define the leader you want to be, observe your own thoughts without judgment, call out what doesn’t serve you, and call forth what does. But most of all, you’ll walk away from this experience with a deeper appreciation of why you must be a magnificent woman first to have a magnificent career.
