Slow Leadership

Slow Down and Envision How to Make
a More Meaningful Impact as a Leader

Do you interact with so many people you have trouble keeping track of them all? Are you constantly reacting to email, text messages and a relentless set of daily tasks that barrage you every single day? Do you feel like you are over-connecting but under-relating to your co-workers and other people in your life? The mantra for this workshop is:

If you want to achieve your most important goals as quickly as possible, slow down.

How can slowing down make you more effective as a leader? In this session, we take a look at 7 Slow Leadership strategies that will help you become more inner-directed and purposeful. This advanced work-life balance workshop, which takes a page from the Slow movement started by Carlo Petrini in Italy, will enable you to reflect on how you can reconnect with your core values and then apply the guidance they contain toward the development of your personal leadership style.
