What is the Masterclass about?
Megan and Michael designed and co-led the world’s first wait-list control trial of an 8-week Mindful Leader programme and between them have considerable experience teaching mindfulness to organisational leaders.
They’ll share their methods, results and their developing model of Mindful Leadership. They will describe, using their evidence, how mindfulness impacts capacities which are considered as vital for leaders in the 21st Century. Given that their research indicates the importance of practice, they will also advise how mindfulness interventions should be introduced to leaders in a way that encourages them to practice in a sustainable way.
The day will be highly interactive and will include several experiential and small group discussion components which will assist application.

This day is part of a series of Workplace Masterclasses being introduced by Oxford and Bangor Mindfulness Centres.
