    Abdul Kalumbi

    It has been said Mindfulness is the new workplace “superpower” -- a way of thinking and being in the present moment rather than fixating on the past or imagining the future. It is also accepting our thoughts and feelings without judging them, without believing there is a “wrong” or “right” way to think or feel in each moment. Leaders that practice Mindfulness can increase their positive impact on those they lead. They suspend judgement of their counterparts or subordinates before receiving the complete picture. They wisely respond to organizational problems and other people instead of knee jerk reacting, which tends to exacerbate the problem or makes others feel small.

    Join us to discuss:

    • What is Mindfulness?
    • What is Mindful Leadership?
    • Mindfulness Practice Reshapes the Brain
    • Benefits of Learning Mindful Leadership
    • Guide, Not Control: Learning Gentle Guidance, Avoiding Heavy-Handed Controlling

    Randal Weidenaar

    As an HR professional in these challenging times, how do you train your leaders to steer the culture of your organization effectively?  One in three workers say their manager can’t lead them and 28% of HR professionals’ time is spent addressing problems caused by poor people managers (SHRM 2019 Culture Report).  What if there was one thing that motivated both employees and managers in your organization to lead and perform well?

    Drawing on human attachment theory, scientific research, and business case studies, this seminar provides participants with inspiration and actionable insights into what creates healthy, thriving culture.  The presentation is designed for HR professionals on any level interested in learning more about how to pivot your organization toward effective leadership that can build and sustain profitable, winning AND caring cultures.
