Finding The Space To Lead

Today I have a special treat for you.

Janice Marturano is a rock star in mindful leadership.

She is credited as being the first to bring mindfulness into the corporate space during her tenure as vice president of General Mills.

She was the first to bring mindfulness to the World Economic Forum in Davos where her presentation was all the buzz – even among an audience of world leaders.

And she is the Founder of the Institute for Mindful Leadership, a non-profit dedicated to training and supporting leaders in the exploration of mindfulness and leadership excellence.

I was fortunate enough to chat with Janice recently and in this 18-minute interview she shares:

–       The definition of mindful leadership and how it can benefit your career.

–       The four characteristics of a truly mindful leader.

–       Practical tools to ground yourself during periods of extreme stress.

I took SO many notes from this discussion, but here are two of my favorite quotes.

“Our body and our mind are rarely in the same place.”  

“The best leaders have bright minds and good hearts and they are drawn to leadership through a sense of service.”

I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.

P.S. I’m giving away three copies of Janice’s new book Finding the Space to Lead: A Practical Guide to Mindful Leadership to readers of this blog. All you have to do is write YOUR favorite quotes from the interview in the comments section and I’ll select the winners based on – what else – thoughtfulness. Good luck!
