How do you cultivate more inspired leaders who act boldly, speak powerfully, and lead holistically?
Impact. Connection. Courage. As women leaders, we seek them because we know these are some of the most important elements needed to drive engagement, job satisfaction, and results. Yet, in a 24/7 hyper-connected world, it’s often difficult to step outside yourself, pause the ever-growing to-do list, and cultivate behaviors that lead to impact, connection, and courage.
We’ve all heard advice such as ‘bring your whole self to work’ and ‘be fully present in the moment.’ In fact, research shows that practices such as mindfulness can not only increase productivity at work, but also increase creativity and employee engagement. We know leadership behaviors which embody the whole leader can drive better business interactions, problem solving ability, and productivity, all leading to enhanced corporate performance. How do you develop a holistic leader? Where do you start?
During a recent Wellesley College Leadership for Impact program, participants discovered the answer. Our executive education model, designed exclusively for women, shows how leaders can become more effective by tapping into the power that already exists within them. Our new, holistic, three-pronged approach curates a data-driven, practitioner-focused, mindful practice like no other. Participants discover their power by learning about critical leadership skills and behaviors, but also by reflection, mindfulness and connection building.
