We were never given an instruction manual for our brain, nor our body. Mindlessness is the default condition of human beings and it affects everything we do. In a tumultuous world, this form of autopilot can be deadly for both people and organizations.

By contrast, mindfulness is how we practice mastery of our nervous system, our attention and our actions.

Today’s leaders need to know how to bring greater calm and clarity when endeavoring to solve challenging problems. Today’s leaders need to know how to stay on target and find the necessary energy to keep moving ahead. Today’s leaders need to create positive options where none seem present.

Peter Drucker famously asserted that “you cannot manage other people unless you manage yourself first.” In this keynote, Jeremy will give an overview of the necessary internal skills leaders need to be effective in quickly changing and unpredictable times. He’ll also allow us a little time to practice together as a group.

Attendees will learn about the science of mindfulness and what’s happening biologically when we’re mindless.

You’ll learn how to recognize your state, and how to begin to express deliberate command over your nervous system.

You’ll also learn some very speakable new vocabulary to talk about mindfulness work with those you lead.
