Welcome


5th Annual Mindful Leadership Summit
November 1 - 4th, 2018
Washington, D.C.
 

The Mindful Leadership Summit is the world's largest gathering devoted to the advancement of mindfulness and compassion in the workplace. 

 

Now is the time to Redefine Leadership.

There is an alternative to just leading from the top down.
It's leading from the inside out. 

 
 


That’s what mindful leadership is all about. It’s about recognizing that your leadership is in service to others. It’s about creating the space in your life to cultivate self-awareness, compassion and leading with authenticity in a way that inspires others. Doing this, we can transform our own lives, our organizations, our communities – and the world.  

If you aspire to bring Mindfulness to your organization, then this is the Pre-Eminent Opportunity to join the Movement and learn how to redefine Leadership for the 21st century.


In the last 4 years, we've had 2,970 leaders from over 34 countries attend our annual event



The Mindful Leadership Summit is the world's largest gathering devoted to the advancement of mindfulness and compassion in the workplace.

    Experience SMART (Stress Management and Resiliency Training) a structured approach to enhance self-awareness, focus, and positive mindset based on integrating cutting-edge advances in neurosciences with timeless principles. The program has been tested in over 20 completed research studies at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere, with the results showing consistent and strong improvement in stress, anxiety, happiness, and positive health behaviors.

  • Thursday Option 2: The Flourishing Center
    Discover what 30 years of research has uncovered about the science of resilience. Help yourself and others bounce back better from ANY adversity, big or small. In this training learn the foundational mental, emotional, physical and spiritual/social skills for resilience. Full day participants will earn a Certificate of Level 1 Completion in the Bounce Back Better® (B³) Program from The Flourishing Center, the worlds leader in positive psychology practitioner training programs. 

  • Sunday Option 1: Conscious Leadership Group
    Join Jim Dethmer, co-founder of the Conscious Leadership Group, and discover the 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership. Learn practical ways to bring emotional intelligence into the workplace, how to shift from being reactive to being present and how to use candor & authenticity to shift a workplace conversation or culture.

  • Sunday Option 2: New Ventures West
    Our world is being disrupted, rearranged, collapsing in many ways. It is tempting to distract ourselves or throw up our hands in resignation. However, it is possible to re-find our feet, stand with resolve and dignity, reawaken our courage and sensitivity, and reoccupy our hearts and our connections to everyone. How? Join James Flaherty for this important exploration.

  • Sunday Option 3: The High Performance Learning Center
    Learn about the ancient practices of Tai Chi and Qigong during Michael Gelb’s Post-Summit Intensive. The workshop will be broken down into two parts. Part 1 will look at Mindfulness in Motion and provide an introduction to Tai Chi and Qigong. Part 2 will provide a deep dive into the applications of Tai Chi and Qigong principles for Leadership.

  • Sunday Option 4: Naropa University
    Participate in an experiential workshop titled Death as Catalyst: An Exploration of How to Develop Fearless Leadership. Mindfulness practices will be used to guide participants into a contemplation of their own mortality, bringing heart-centered clarity to the values and priorities that inform their leadership style and daily decisions.

 

NOTE:  You can update your intensive option at any point so long as there is space available.

What to Expect


What to Expect


What to Expect at the Summit

 
 

What we hope for you:

Discovery - How do you keep up with the latest research? Techniques? Innovation? You will be inspired by work being done in your backyard and across the globe. You'll hear updates from the leaders in the field and untold stories about ordinary people having an extraordinary impact. You’ll encounter new ways to approach situations that you’ve been stuck in and tools that help implement Mindfulness into your workplace easier. You’ll learn from the best of the best and engage with peers that are in the trenches facing the same issues you face daily.

Growth  - How do you have a greater impact? Work with competing priorities? Not enough time? Not enough money? You’ve got to get creative and hone your craft. You will discover new ways to approach old problems, learn to deliver more effective results with slight modifications to your technique and how to have greater success while avoiding burn out. You will leave with a deeper sense of self, knowing how to apply Mindfulness to your profession with more skills and how to bring Mindfulness into your workplace with greater effectiveness.

Connection -  How do you ensure that when you leave the Summit that you have a support system to fall back on? You’ll be part of a unique gathering of people, all of whom are interested in exploring this emerging path of leadership excellence. We know how important it’s going to be for you to connect with others at this event, so we're creating an environment that encourages peer-to-peer learning and community-building. In addition to keynote talks, main stage presentations, workshops and mindfulness practice, there will be opportunities for making personal connections through small round tables, organic group discussions and social events. We'll have time to share success stories, challenges, practical tools and best practices.
