Mindful Leadership Circle

What is it?

A Mindful Leadership Circle gathers leaders together to:

  • foster a better culture in the leadership team.
  • slow down, be mindful and listen deeply.
  • access the wisdom and experience of peers.
  • create a sense of collective, a true connection and positive energy amongst leaders.
  • improve the overall team performance 

  • offer new perspective to look at an important leadership challenge or question.
  • develop new innovative ways for responding to the challenge or questions.
  • hear the reflections of others and gently share your own

It filled a gap for me as a team leader because it is so necessary to have peers ask the right questions to help me make decisions. It gave me clarity. 

Product Owner, Telstra

It is a great initiative to enhance our listening skills and enable a new thought process to emerge that is more creative.

I loved it!

It helps me be more present and listening more deeply. It is a time where I'm not distracting with my laptop, emails or calls.

I enjoy the quality of the conversations held in the circle and how we all face the same challenges somehow.
