Mindful Leadership Summit at 1440 Multiversity


A New Way of Leading

Today’s fast-paced and uncertain times call for leaders to have minds that are incredibly focused and clear.

In addition to the difficult and stressful demands on leaders today, more and more employees are unwilling to accept a purely top-down approach in the workplace. Plus, there’s now an emerging movement of employees looking for more meaning, happiness and connectedness at work.

This requires a new way of leading, and a new, people-centered approach to leadership.

Consider This . . .

“In a 2016 McKinsey & Company study of more than 52,000 managers, 86% rated themselves as inspiring and good role models. But this stands in stark contrast to how employees perceive their leaders. A 2016 Gallup engagement survey found that 82% of employees see their leaders as fundamentally uninspiring.”

 - From Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter’s new book, The Mind of the Leader, being published by Harvard Business Review Press in March 2018

How Mindful Leadership Leads to People-Centered Leadership

Three important characteristics of mindful leadership are mindfulness, compassion and service. Mindfulness helps you with focus and resilience. It also helps you to understand how your mind works, and to become more self-aware.

Compassion is not about being soft. It's about understanding people at an emotional level, and truly caring about their well-being.

A commitment to service helps you to get out of the way, and provide the space and support that people need to thrive. It's one of the cornerstones of a people-centered organizational culture.

Put together, these three qualities are a powerful way for you to improve the way you lead yourself, your people, and your organization.

The Mind of the Leader: Learn to be a More Mindful and Compassionate Leader

Jacqueline Carter and Rasmus Hougaard

Rasmus Hougaard

Rasmus Hougaard

Through two years of research, Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter have identified two of the most important traits of some of today’s greatest leaders at companies like McKinsey, Microsoft, Lego and Google: mindfulness and compassion. In this workshop they will teach you the science and practices of developing mindfulness and compassion and how to apply them in your leadership.

They draw on their own personal experiences training leaders around the world for the Potential Project, as well as research conducted for their book, The Mind of the Leader, being published in March 2018 by Harvard Business Review Press.

Rasmus is Managing Director and Founder of The Potential Project. Jacqueline is North American Director of the Potential Project.

Intensive 2

Finding the Space to Lead

John Cregier

John Cregier

John Cregier

Each of us has the potential to lead with excellence. But it’s hard to reach our potential for excellence when demands for our attention can feel overwhelming, and the frenetic pace of work causes us to function on autopilot much of the time. We lose our ability to respond with clarity, creativity and compassion.

This daylong intensive offers you the opportunity to explore and learn how to cultivate the innate abilities of your mind, and approach everyday situations with greater focus and ease. Founded on over a decade of work and research by Janice Marturano and the Institute for Mindful Leadership, this training has been successfully used by leaders and organizations worldwide. It is based in part on Janice's award winning book, Finding the Space to Lead: A Practical Guide to Mindful Leadership.

John is a Senior Leader at the Institute for Mindful Leadership, and former Vice President of Information Technology at U.S. Cellular.

Chuck Lief

Develop practical skills and tools to engage with leadership in a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Perhaps surprisingly, meeting the challenges of leadership allows us to develop skills to connect more deeply with ourselves and others.

Learn more about how mindfulness helps you develop resilience, and how connecting deeply with yourself and others is the foundation for leading with authenticity.

Chuck is President of Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Bill is the former Superintendent of Well-Being at Google.
