The Regional Leadership Council brings together leadership program participants and alumni from Central Iowa to learn and connect at the first-ever Converge event.
Participants will experience:
4:00 - 5:30 p.m. - The Power of Pausing (Kevin Pokorny)
Pause is a tool for leaders who want to be masterful, influential, and inspiring. Pause allows leaders to respond with a mindfulness approach to whatever is placed at their feet. A growing body of research shows that by practicing mindfulness, leaders have improved cognitive function, increased attention, and lower levels of stress.
This interactive workshop gives you both an understanding of mindfulness and its practical application for leaders, beginning with the simple pause.
You will learn and practice the value of pausing to:
- Help you deal with ambiguity and complex challenges
- Respond with greater clarity, purpose, focus, compassion, and creativity
- Expand beyond performance - the doing of leadership - to the overlooked aspect of being
- Increase you own positivity, sense of peace, and personal presence
Kevin Pokorny is a master trainer, curriculum designer, consultant, facilitator, moderator, speaker and coach.
