The dictionary defines leadership as “the action of leading a group of people or an organization.” So whether you are a stay-at-home parent, CEO of an international organization or a mid-level manager with direct-reports, you are being asked to lead.

However, being given the responsibility to be in charge of people does not necessarily mean that one is a good leader. Untrained or stressed out leaders often default to the command and control method, often resulting in unhappy team members, high turnover and at worst, may even have complaints filed against them either in their HR department or in court.

While knowing those who you lead and being able to navigate the work environment are certainly helpful in becoming a better leader, research is showing more and more that good leaders are those who have the skills to look inside themselves. Meditation and self-reflection are skills used for accessing emotional intelligence and social intelligence, both of which play a large role in the today’s effective leader. Those who develop these skills – and they are skills that can be developed – often have more effective and happier teams.

This webinar will explore what emotional intelligence and social intelligence are, as well as how to access the wisdom via meditation and self-reflection to access the wisdom we all have inside of ourselves to become better leaders.
