Mindful Leadership Development

Spring 2021

Taught By: Latha Poonamallee

Section: A

CRN: 7556

Credits: 3

Leadership is not simply about the leader’s ability to influence the others. The underlying assumption of this course is that the ability to lead begins with the process of self-discovery, self-awareness, and self-leadership. In this course we will review traditional models of leadership and explore emergent models that incorporate intentionality, mindfulness, authenticity, transformation, and service and art and science of mindfulness practice. Central to this course is the practical mindfulness training. Respond not React. Through mindfulness training, we will learn how to cultivate attention and awareness that allows us to live all aspects of our lives with a great sense of skill, connection, openness, and balance. Paying attention to the activity of the mind for even a few minutes yields powerful and potentially valuable information. Our capacity to be listen deeply, to make informed decisions, to effectively handle stress, to ignite innovation, and to access previously untapped resources and apply them rely on our capacity to be mindful and present. When we are fully present in the moment, we optimize our capacity for self-awareness, self-regulation, and relationship management.
