Mindfulness, it's a practice NOT perfection! Lead iMpErFeCtLy!
What does your mindfulness practice look like? Is it still a practice if you don't meditate or do yoga?
Human development is largely driven by changes that take place in the body and the brain. As we strive to create and be a part of high performing teams, having an awareness of the physiology, neuroscience, and the power of empathy will greatly increase our probably of success. Even more powerful, is having the capability of AWARENESS of ones self and our environment. How do we foster and create an environment where you and your colleagues can experience the feeling of being understood, lead with empathy, and create generative solutions through dialogue. Mindful Leadership provides clarity and enhances the journey through the important work we are doing.
Please join me on this exploration of the the physiology of the brain, patterns of the mind, how each of our individuals stories create our perspectives, and how our current agile and coaching models incorporate aspects of mindfulness.
Outline/Structure of the Case Study
Introspection, conceptualization, and actualization is the reoccurring learning pattern followed through this presentation.
In this session the audience will be given a chance to understand the concepts of mind, mindsight, and mindfulness.
These concepts will be follow by an open discussion on how colleagues and we as an industry are incorporating mindfulness into our practices. RAIN (simple version) and Mindsight (a little more completed) will be introduce to the audience as well as an overview (and video) to explain the physiology of the brain.
The audience will then be given the opportunity to explore (table exercise) how "their story" may be shaping their behaviors, actions, and even brain activity.
After a few minutes of silence, we will walk through some coaching models and discuss their relation to mindfulness.
After another silent, intentional pause each individual will build their own roadmap, with their new, tailored understanding of their mindfulness practice.
