Authentic Leadership: Mindfulness at Work • Boulder

Acharya Susan Skjei

September 24, 2013

  • $15.00 – Program Price

How do we engage with difficult or challenging situations in the workplace?  What does it take to be present, resilient and responsive to those around us and to the complexities we encounter everyday on the job?  Mindfulness practice offers immediate access to our own authenticity and to the courage and confidence that arise from that experience. We will explore three ways leaders can build capacity for resilience in the face of constant change.

Susan Skjei is offering an Authentic Leadership Workshop at Shambhala Mountain Center October 17-20.

This talk is co-sponsored by Naropa University and will be held 7-9pm at Naropa University, Nalanda Events Center, 6287 Arapahoe Avenue, Boulder.
