The biggest challenge companies have had in the U.S. during the pandemic is leadership in a virtual environment. It is difficult to hold meetings virtually, engage employees, and keep continuity. More than ever leaders need to develop listening skills, develop empathy, and work hard to identify emerging leaders. In this class you will learn how to: Engage employees that are working from home Set reasonable goals knowing your employees are under a lot of stress Track participation Online Platforms and what is best for your group How to make the connection instead of feeling like you are talking to a screen
When Elizabeth started her own meditation practice nearly a decade ago, her teacher gave her one valuable piece of advice. " One thinks, "I can't do it. I can't stop my thoughts." However, thoughts aren't the problem. The way that you look at them is the problem. That's what I've been saying for years. Also, it doesn't matter whether you have a peaceful or active mind. What matters is whose mind is it and how are you looking at it? Someone may have an active mind and some of those activities could have great merit." It was through this simple piece of advice that Elizabeth began to implement that changed her entire practice and eventually her life. It helped her to relate to co-workers differently, perform better at work, and eventually get a raise and awards for her performance. She found that her marriage thrived, as well as all relationships. Ultimately she found that her thoughts caused her a lot of stress and uncomfortable situations. So at work and at home, she implemented making friends with the mind to her daily practice. Standing back and watching thoughts rather than reacting or identifying with the thoughts is the first step to relating with the mind and eventually making friends with the mind, which leads one to peace. How one relates to their mind and their thoughts are highly relative to their meditation practice and advancement. Many meditation practices teach that a person that meditates needs to stop or slow down thoughts. The reality is, that isn't possible - especially for a busy person in the working world, with timelines, demands, and obligations to work, family, and friends. In this session, Elizabeth discusses: How meditation practices can feel frustrating when one can't get 'there' and how to overcome being judgemental with oneself Why feeling peaceful and then angry later is a part of the process The first step in witnessing what happens in the mind and actually realizing how many thoughts one has during the day or even in an hour is a great place to start How to not identify with the mind and thoughts How to stand back and witness thoughts Why judging yourself or being ashamed of yourself and you're meditation progress only adds to problems All are welcome to join us. If you just started meditating or an advanced practitioner, you are welcome. Even those without a formal practice and are just generally interested in mediation are encouraged to join us. We'd like this session to be collaborative so all can learn from different approaches and support each other. To that end, Elizabeth encourages all that register to bring questions or challenges that you'd like to share with the group. This session is for all people of all denominations - regardless of religion or beliefs. It is specifically tailored to one that has a full, active life with demands.
Join Elizabeth Lions for this 30 minutes presentation on Mindfulness for the Busy Professional where she'll discuss: Simply - What is mindfulness? Simple easy steps you can do daily that create mindfulness Cultivate self-awareness Learn how to respond instead of reacting Change reactivity patterns that are destructive How a busy person can cultivate mindfulness and still be effective at work Mindfulness at work is worth learning and practicing. The technique reduces obsessive/negative thinking, decreases stress, boosts working memory & focus, provides less emotional reactivity, and increases cognitive flexibility. In short work relationships become less stressful. Theses benefits were reported in a 2011 practice review for the American Psychological Association. Elizabeth Lions specializes in teaching mindfulness and meditation to executives. She's coached some of the top leaders out of banking and finance, manufacturing, and healthcare. Each of them was highly talented, driven, and passionate individuals. However, while her clients varied in gender, upbringing, socioeconomic, and status all clients had one common denominator: fears, uncertainties, and anxiety despite the level of success and mastery they had at work. Elizabeth is just like you - a busy executive - which makes her the ideal teacher. She is a certified meditation teacher, coach, author, and podcaster.
