)-- Becoming a Better Leader Using Mindfulness Meditation
Renowned experts to explore practical ways to de-stress and re-focus in order to become stronger leaders and more fulfilled people at annual "leading differently" retreat June 2-3 at The Hilton Garden in Wayne, NJ.
Leaders in all walks of life from business to government to military and the non-profit world are under constant pressure to execute against a myriad of challenges and tasks that true leadership demands. How can they better perform their duties? Two prominent experts from the world-renowned Institute For Mindful Leadership (IML) will be teaching Mindfulness Mediation during a special two-day retreat called "Leading Differently: The Power of A Purposeful Pause"* to enhance leadership skills, qualities and personal character June 2-3 at the Hotel Garden Inn, located in Wayne, New Jersey.
Cost of the two-day event is $549 and includes tuition and lunch with fellow attendees and instructors. Register online at the IML site.
IML instructors include Janice Marturano, lawyer, author and founder of the five-year-old Institute For Mindful Leadership in Oakland, NJ, and Carol Hyman.
Professor emeritus Jon Kabat-Zinn (founder and former director of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center) helped mainstream the practice of Mindfulness meditation in modern medicine and healthcare many years ago. Today, Marturano is mainstreaming that same much-needed message -- and mindset -- by training business leaders and executives to practice it, from Davos to corporate America and the U.S. Government, military and other organizations (See Media Kit).
Marturano: A Trusted Pioneer in Mindful Meditation for Leaders
Maturano is the author of the award-winning book, Finding The Space To Lead, that is available now in several languages and is being taught at select business schools. And she remains one of the top practitioner/proponents of Mindful Leadership as a Best Practice, as you can see in this recent (brief) "Pioneers" clip at the Huffington Post.
"In today’s world, we are faced with novel challenges, limited resources, and increased demands for our expertise and time," Marturano says. "The constant pressures can deplete our mental resiliency and interfere with many of the hallmarks of excellence, including our ability to focus, to see clearly, to cultivate space for creativity, and to embody compassion."
"During this 2-day nonresidential retreat, we will explore mindfulness meditation and practical applications to enhance our ability to lead and live with excellence," adds Hyman. "We will also uncover ways in which our ability to create space in our day affects our ability to lead–whether we are leading a team, our family or our own lives."

Feedback from Past Participants of the Leading Differently Retreat:
S. Weekes, “I found all parts of the retreat beneficial to my learning and development as a leader. Purposeful pauses have made their way into my day at home and at work. I already see the positive impact grounding myself has on interactions with others as I am more open to exploring their perspectives.”
A. Clark, “Of particular value is the discussion around taking time for oneself to be a better leader. Another aspect I enjoyed was the discussion on mindful communication. I am very much looking forward to having Dawn send me the translation for the steps. I enjoyed everything about the retreat.”
J. Piche, “The retreat was of immense value to me. I discovered that I too am capable of meditating – with a little practice. I no longer believe that such an activity is beyond my capabilities. This became more obvious to me during the 2nd day. I found that I was able to listen to my 'core' in response to questions or direction from Janice or Dawn. I also appreciate how the purposeful pause can assist in 'grounding' me when necessary, and of reminding me of the importance of living in the present moment.”
