  • Leadership Forum: Mindful 360 Leadership | 8:30am - 10:30am | Business, Chamber, Networking
    Leadership Forum: Mindful 360 Leadership - Train your mind and enhance your leadership skills through mindful leadership.

    Mindful leadership is not a new concept, but is one that, until recent years, has not been widely utilized or seen as something more than an "artsy","hipster", or "fad" approach to leadership. Mindful leadership is about recognizing that leadership is in service to others and grows through developing a holistic and focused view of business, the community, the team, and self. The Leadership Forum will be led by Terri Mayes, who will share examples of mindful leadership and how to encourage it throughout your organization, as opposed to traditional management.

    Admission is $150 per person, which includes a hot breakfast. Registration, breakfast and strategic networking will begin at 8:00 a.m.

    Learn more and register today. Space is limited.
    Contact Tracy Tomasetti at tracy.tomasetti@elmhurst.edu, or (630) 617-5997, or register online at http://www.elmhurst.edu/ep.
