Mindful Leadership Series

Returning in Fall 2019!
Details will be announced soon. Please check back.
Common Ground Retreat Center, Oberlin, Ohio

Do you find it a challenge to keep your focus on what’s essential? Is your connection to purpose clear? Are you showing up in your area of influence — whether that be in your work or in your personal life — in the most effective way?

From the moment we log on or step into the office, we’re bombarded with distractions. We can easily spend our days working at full speed yet feel as though we are accomplishing little.

Our Mindful Leadership series is designed to create more focused, productive and engaged leaders. By operating with intention, leaders can make more effective actions and decisions to create the outcomes they truly desire, for themselves and their organizations. The Mindful Leadership Program is a monthly series of in-person sessions taking place at Common Ground
