Mindful Leadership: Leading with Heart and Mind for Healthcare Leaders
January 16, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The use of mindful practices like meditation, introspection, and journaling have been shown to contribute to the success of leading organizations. Mindful practices support personal and professional growth by enabling leaders to gain focus, clarity, creativity, and compassion – qualities which allow leaders to face the myriad demands and struggles of everyday work life. Healthcare leaders, in particular, deal with challenges and pressures that are unique to the healthcare climate. Practicing mindfulness can help healthcare executives more effectively deal with these challenges by teaching them how to approach each situation with focus and clarity to make important decisions, how to be creative and innovative in their approach to healthcare leadership, and how to be compassionate with others in times of turmoil.
The goal of this session is to make the case for the importance of bringing mindful practices into healthcare organizations to develop leaders’ cognitive abilities to be more effective and compassionate and provide suggestions for how to implement these practices in an organization.
