April 4:  Breathe. Think. Lead. | Mindfulness for High-Achievers

Angie O'Donnell, MBA’92, Master Certified Coach and Co-Founder, 3D Leadership Group

The pressure to succeed at everything can leave an aspiring leader in a constant state of exhaustion. In an increasingly complex world, it is no wonder that mindfulness has gone from buzz word to an essential component in reducing stress and improving performance among top executives, doctors, and educators. Beyond health benefits, for leaders, the practice of mindfulness can bolster emotional intelligence, heighten self-awareness, and provide clarity and focus in decision-making. Tonight, we’ll examine ways to incorporate mindfulness into your daily routine to reduce anxiety, avoid burnout, and position yourself for continued success as entrepreneurial leaders.
