When you’re finished growing as a leader—you’re finished! The best leaders continuously develop themselves through education, personal reflection, and conversation with others. ACHIEVE’s two-day leadership retreat is an opportunity to engage with other leaders from across North America and explore topics relevant to your role as a leader.

The mindful leader is grounded, self-aware, and compassionate, which reduces stress for others and inspires teams to action. This retreat provides insight for incorporating mindfulness practices into your leadership. Mindfulness is about becoming more conscious, more intentional, and more aware of one’s inner processes. Balance in emotion and thought leads to health and well-being, and provides a rich foundation for leadership success. This interactive retreat will assist leaders to develop mindfulness-based strategies to promote self-awareness, emotional balance, stress reduction, and personal and professional growth. It will also examine how leaders can bring mindfulness practices into the work environment for the benefit of the workplace.

During this retreat, participants will…
  • Consider the value of mindfulness in their leadership and how it can support their tasks and relationships in their unique workplace
  • Explore balance and regulation as the core of emotional, physical, and mental well-being
  • Learn how to reduce stress through mindfulness
  • Discover how to integrate mindfulness into their daily lives and work as leaders
  • Engage in a variety of mindfulness practices including sitting meditation focused on breath, body, sound, and thoughts; mindful listening and speaking; cultivating body awareness; and reflective journaling
  • Take time to experience stillness and reflection for greater clarity, calm and leadership effectiveness
  • Replenish and relax
You Will Receive
  • Training manual
  • Lunch
  • Refreshments
