Mindfulness Meditation for Leaders
Are you working in a company or law firm where leaders recognize the value of daily meditation practice?
Do leaders in your company or law firm stay calm and focused when faced with new challenges and uncertainty?
One of the most powerful questions one can ask is “Does our company culture encourage leaders meditating to better manage stress?” Emotionally intelligent and socially intelligent leaders frequently meditate to stay calm under pressure and make better decisions.

Leading others is no small task, requiring a poised, courageous, down-to-earth acknowledgment of reality. Unfortunately, many leaders hang onto delusions of control and prefer the status quo, unwilling to face the risk of being uncomfortable or fearful.

Meditation and mindfulness are invitations to become more fully human. In everyday leadership, they confer the power to have a real impact on your organization.
Working with a seasoned executive coach trained in emotional intelligence and incorporating leadership assessments such as the Bar-On EQ-i and CPI 260 can help you become a leader who benefits from practicing meditation on a regular basis.
You can become a leader who models emotional intelligence and social intelligence, and who inspires people to become happily engaged and aligned with the vision and mission of your company or law firm.
