About the Program 

The Power of Mindful Leadership

Are you pleased with the quality of your conversations and relationships or can they be improved? Are you struggling to be understood by a difficult boss, customer, co-worker or friend? Who or what is causing you the most stress? How much control, if any, do you have in your life?

Mindful Leaders know how to get desired behavioral change from others. Whereas Management is rooted in fear-based thoughts that entrap – Leadership is rooted in faith-based thoughts that empowers. Do your thoughts empower or entrap you? Do they lead to actions that gain employee cooperation or do they or sabotage your efforts? Do you respond or react to conflict and stress?

These questions and more will be answered in this interactive engagement by transformational speaker Sheila Savar as she presents on topics that include:

  • The Power of Thought - how your thoughts become your reality
  • Emotional and Behavioral Drivers
  • The Conversation is the Relationship: How you contribute to its outcome
  • How to steer conversations from Contention into Collaboration
  • Do your thoughts Empower or Entrap you: Identifying the Source and Characteristics of each
  • A journey into Empowerment: A step-by-step Process that works!
  • Mindful Leadership – The New Management Style for driving business economics

After this presentation you’ll know how to handle difficult conversations and relationship more effectively. You’ll know how to respond rather than react with regret. You’ll know how to communicate in a manner that wins cooperation and trust. Most importantly, you will be equipped with the tools you need to make lasting lifestyle changes to help you achieve happiness and success!
