Meditation is a growing part of corporate wellness and other leadership development initiatives. Meditation4Leadership, a nonprofit organization, offers services to assist organizations to expand their effectiveness by teaching employees, directors and other stakeholders how to access inner wisdom. Following the guidelines of our philosophy of Leading From Within, Meditation4Leadership teaches the essentials for individuals to cultivate greater awareness, connection, perspective and potential in their lives (the Four Pillars) to improve their leadership effectiveness with a corresponding benefit for their organization.

Foundational 5-Part Meditation4Leadership Series

Location: Offered on-site or through remote teaching

Logistics:  Five 60-minute sessions, which can be held weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. It is preferable that this be at a consistent time throughout the series (for example, over the lunch hour on a Thursday).

This program is designed to remove barriers that inhibit people from embracing mindfulness and meditation practices and to reveal how these practices enhance personal well-being and professional performance. By the end of the five sessions, attendees will have the knowledge and tools to build a lasting practice. The program begins with a session that demystifies meditation, including an overview of what mindfulness/meditation is and isn’t, scientific evidence of the benefits of these practices, and an explanation how learning to observe with full attention in the present moment can improve your performance.  Each of the subsequent four sessions focus on one of four foundational pillars that can be enhanced through meditation practice (Awareness, Connection, Perspective and Potential). Attendees will practice specific meditations that strengthen these pillars, which incorporate 13 traits of effective leaders.  Attendees will receive a copy of Steven M. Cohen’s book Leading from Within: A Guide To Maximizing Your Effectiveness Through Meditation at no charge.
