What is the ROI of Mindfulness Training?
Ryan is an expert at helping to create the kind of workplace culture that fosters positive outcomes. Research indicates that incorporating mindfulness training into employee development programs can double the business impact of other programs. Attendees gained skills that helped them become more confident, responsible, and better listeners. In her work at Genentech, executive coach Pamela Weiss, founder of Appropriate Response, has demonstrated the ROI of teaching mindfulness to increase workforce productivity http://bit.ly/m4yVVq . The ROI of a mindfulness program can be up to $2 dollars for every dollar spent!
As former Medtronic CEO and acclaimed author Bill George has stated “Leaders who do not take time for introspection and reflection may be vulnerable to being seduced by external rewards, such as power, money, and recognition. Or they may feel a need to appear so perfect to others that they cannot admit vulnerabilities and acknowledge mistakes.”
Mindfulness is a state of being fully present, aware of oneself and other people, and sensitive to one's reactions to stressful situations. Leaders who are mindful tend to be more effective in understanding others and motivating them toward shared goals. Hence, they become more effective in leadership roles.
Inspired by the mindful leadership retreat conducted in 2010 by Bill George and Yongey Mingur Rinpoche, the goal of the Mindful Leadershop Seminars is to bring together Western understanding about leadership and Eastern wisdom about the mind, developed from practices that have been used for thousands of years, to contribute to the self-awareness and self-compassion of leaders.It will enable us to explore such complex subjects as the impact of understanding self-awareness in leadership effectiveness, gaining self-compassion, shared awareness through the support of others, leading others mindfully, and self-actualization so that we can lead an ethical and productive workforce.
Rather than coach leadership strategy and tactics, we place an emphasis on the practice of emotional intelligence to help you become self-aware and effective communicator. Clients gain these "soft skills" to become more understandable, confident, engaging, and adaptive. We focus on creating the kind of workplace culture that fosters positive outcomes.
