Janice Marturano is the Founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Mindful Leadership, a nonprofit organization dedicated to offering leaders an in-depth exploration of mindful leadership training and its impact on the cultivation of leadership excellence. She founded the Institute in January 2011, after ending her legal/business career as a senior executive with a Fortune 200 company. In 2006, while still an officer at General Mills, she taught the very first mindful leadership curricula to a group of colleagues. Demand then began to spread throughout the company and, since 2008, to thousands of leaders at organizations around the world. She has brought this training to the World Economic Forum, Brookings Institute, and top business schools. She is the author of the award winning, international best-selling book, Finding the Space to Lead: A Practical Guide to Mindful Leadership. Her work has been featured in the BBC, Huff Post Live, NY Times, Financial Times, Time magazine, CNBC, CEO magazine, and Forbes.

Final Note

Successful leaders are committed to a growth mindset and continuously learning. As important as it is to study strategy and tactics, the single greatest impact on leaders' effectiveness is the strengthening and development of the mind’s innate capabilities. We’re excited to partner with the Institute for Mindful Leadership and Janice Marturano to create this program to do just that. The institute has trained leaders with mindfulness for 15 years, including organizations like Target, Cigna, Honeywell, The Brookings Institute, the World Economic Forum, and many more. Janice is a pioneer in Mindful Leadership training and understands the challenges modern leaders face. As a senior executive at General Mills (F200) she has personal experience facing the same leadership challenges you face daily and has been in your shoes.

We've designed the program to fit into a busy schedule, requiring only 2 hours per week to complete all assignments and attend webinars. Developing mental capacities takes time, practice, support and expert instruction. With 12 weeks of expert instruction, pod groups, and daily practice you will effectively learn how to develop and strengthen the mind's essential leadership capabilities and practice doing so. The habits will stick with you long after the course has ended for lasting effect. We'll also teach you how to integrate the benefits of these practices into the challenges you face daily. This will not only show up in your work but in your life. The effects will reverberate, and the people around you will notice how you show up. If now is the right time for you, join us on this journey to leading and living with excellence.
