Leading Differently: The Power of a Purposeful Pause

  • Minnesota Landscape Arboretum 3675 Arboretum Drive Chaska, MN, 55318 United States (map)

A Two-day Non-Residential Retreat

In today’s world, we are faced with novel challenges, limited resources, and increased demands for our expertise and time. The constant pressures can deplete our mental resiliency and interfere with many of the hallmarks of excellence, including our ability to focus, to see clearly, to cultivate space for creativity, and to embody compassion.

During this 2-day nonresidential retreat, we will explore mindfulness meditation and practical applications to enhance our ability to lead and live with excellence. We will also uncover ways in which our ability to create space in our day affects our ability to lead–whether we are leading a team, our family or our own lives.

We will gather to experientially explore this training of the mind. Through meditation, gentle stretching and practical daily applications, we will begin to see how we can lead with excellence- focused, clear, creative, and compassionate.

This retreat will cover:
An in-depth exploration of Mindfulness and Mindful Leadership.
How to take a purposeful pause in the midst of a busy day.
An exploration of what we understand about leadership excellence and what gets in the way.
Practical applications of Mindful Leadership training to calendars and meetings.
How to continue to develop and strengthen your practices at work and at home.
