mindfulness leadership practice

The increasing demands and nuances of educational systems in America places leaders in complex, high-stress environments. In response, leadership interventions like ours help educational leaders become more mindful and thus more resilient, focused, and aware — qualities that many administrators believe can make them more effective in their leadership roles.

Over the course of two days, participants will learn why mindfulness is relevant to secondary and higher education, its relevance to their leadership practice, how to implement a personal practice, and how to apply their learning to their individual leadership challenges.

The week-long workshop will include panels of diverse senior faculty talking about the tenure and promotion process, launching a research program, professionalism, and detailed sessions on academic and proposal writing. In addition, the workshop will include a discussion about alternative career paths.
