Mindful Leadership

Mindfulness is the psychological  process of bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment - "live in the moment."

Leadership is a process of social influence, which maximizes the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a goal.

A mindful leader is someone who embodies leadership presence by cultivating focus, clarity, creativity, and compassion in the service of others.

Mindfulness has become a business buzzword recently with far more people talking about it than actually practicing it.  You will not be one of those people.  

Take-Aways From This Session:

 In this interactive session, you learn and experience more about mindfulness, participate in practice exercises,  and take away some practical insights such as:
  • the science of mindfulness
  • how to remove the very real obstacles to showing up fully for your business, team, boss, employees, or partner
  • how to cultivate greater awareness about yourself and others that lead to empowered leadership
Please bring a Pre-Digital Tablet or Notebook (i.e., paper-based) to the session so you can record your observations.

About Our Facilitator: 

Dawna Newcomb
Bold Strategies
Dawna started her career as a cell biology with a focus on virology and subsequently focused her 20-year sales career around growing revenue for companies in life science research, biotechnology, and healthcare.
Concomitantly with her sales career, she opened and ran a yoga center in Montgomery County where she taught yoga, meditation, and offered wellness workshops to a wide variety of students and clients. 

Dawna enjoys the energy of a well-run sales organization, coaching sales managers and their teams and training scientific sales professionals who are moving beyond technology evangelism to commercialize their products and services. 

She also has an unusual knack for helping clients (and business leaders) who are terrified of the word "sales" move gracefully and professionally into a more functional role that allows their ideas to reach the marketplace and generate revenue.  
Recently Dawna opened her own business, Bold Strategies, to give her more freedom to coach, consult, and train sales professionals and teams within biotech and emerging technology companies.

Resolutionary Thinking

Focusing on solutions. Thinking creatively and tenaciously about outcomes. About what’s in your best interests. Getting matters resolved, so you can get on with what matters to you. That’s resolutionary thinking. And that’s made Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy & Ecker, P.A., one of the largest, most respected law firms in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

In 1972, Shulman Rogers was founded on a commitment to client service. Today, the firm’s roster of highly skilled attorneys and other dedicated staff members are all guided by that same commitment. A client-first approach. A smart, efficient practice. A relentless focus on problem-solving. And an underlying compassion—for our clients and our community. It all adds up to resolutionary thinking. The kind of thinking you can count on from the people of Shulman Rogers.
