Session 1 

Leadership Presence and Emotional Agility

This program offers you the opportunity to explore leadership presence through mindfulness practices to uplift your emotional agility and resilience muscle, while also learning to become a better observer of yourself and others. There are simple ways to pick up our resilience and develop emotional agility to create breakthroughs in trying times, get back on track, and create the future you want for yourself, and those you lead.

Emotional agility is growth mindset and we will talk about fixed mindset versus growth mindset in leading through change. You may learn how to prime your mind for high performance habits to pick up habits and behaviors that render successful outcomes. You will learn some tips to generate a higher level of presence with empathy and compassion as you manage strategic initiatives involving business and technology organization or customer disruptions. We will explore how to self regulate your emotions to ensure you can show up at your best with mindfulness and radical acceptance to create new opportunities as you lead others. You will learn how to shift your mood and emotions, and the mood and emotions of others to create higher level of engagement and trust. Leadership is taking others where they have never been before and they will not go there until you show up as a server leader with presence and as a better observer of yourself and others.

Let's take this show on the road!
