MINDFUL LEADERSHIP MISSION
FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS
A Mindfulness-Based Leadership Development Program to cultivate Clarity, Focus, and Compassion
Facilitated by Dr. Home Nguyen & MindKind Institute Faculty
Are you feeling out of balance, stressed or overwhelmed by the amount of work you have?
Do you have a difficult time focusing on shifting priorities, and staying calm amidst uncertainty in your work?
Are you interested in spending less time worrying and more time helping patients?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you will find great benefit from this program.
Why Mindful Leadership is for You?
The Healthcare space is undergoing dramatic change due to healthcare reform, advancing technology and consumer distrust, among other factors. Healthcare providers are feeling overwhelmed and overworked, and the tremendous stress has caused physicians and nurses to burnout and disengage. Unfortunately, as the health and well-being of healthcare providers suffers, so does their sense of compassion for patience.
This training program provides an opportunity to explore how mindfulness and contemplative practice will help you cultivate qualities of a mindful leader and care-giver. This includes being more focused, clear, responsive, creative, and compassionate. Explore your ability to step off the “autopilot treadmill” and rediscover the inspiration that brought you to medicine. With dedication and practice, you can transform yourself, your patients and the entire field of medicine.
Practicing mindful leadership will improve your mental and emotional health while optimizing your leadership presence.
Today every media and reputable research publication, from trade magazines like HBR and Strategy+Business to worldwide periodicals like Time, Newsweek, and the New York Times, is talking about Mindfulness. With all this information available at fingertips, you may still be wondering, how does one begin to develop one's own practice to realize the many benefits ascribed to mindfulness?
Mindfulness can be an excellent practice to improve self-awareness and leadership ability, while also providing other benefits including increased peace of mind, less emotional reactivity, more satisfaction and greater joy. By cultivating mindfulness, you will not just become a more effective leader but a more compassionate healer.
Dr. Home Nguyen and our team at MindKind Institute invite you to join the Mindful Leadership Mission for Healthcare Professionals, a program specifically tailored for busy professionals within the medical field. You will not only grow your personal effectiveness as a leader, but also enable your team to achieve great results through collective growth.
This course can be taken remotely and will be held via an online learning platform and through live video conferences with Dr. Home Nguyen and other experienced co-facilitators.
Through this course you will:
Learn mindfulness meditation, including scientific, theoretical and practical aspects
Identify sources of stress and release it through breath and body awareness
Reduce emotional reactivity and increase space for creativity
Communicate more effectively with co-workers, patients and family
Strengthen a daily practice of mindful leadership and loving-kindness
29 Minutes A Day for 29 Days
You’ll walk away with a range of useful techniques and make a strong start to building a daily mindfulness practice – one that will help you to become more centered, present, and grounded in your day-to-day life. We estimate about 29 minutes per day for meditation and reflection, and an extra one hour per week for readings and group discussion. There are additional opportunities for developing a more rigorous practice and greater learning for those who have the time and volition to go deeper. In general, you will benefit from the training and practice in proportion to your effort.
How it works:
1. Daily Exercises and Practice
You will gain access to our private online learning platform called "Dream See Do." You will practice daily guided meditations, read articles on contemplative practice, share your reflections, and gain specific insight on the benefit of mindfulness in your work and life. You will get helpful feedback and insight from your peers, Dr. Home Nguyen, and other facilitators.
2. Weekly Group Calls
You and your group will meet via video calls for live discussion with Dr. Home Nguyen and other facilitators. In these calls we will review the material and practices, answer questions, express challenges and practice mindfulness together.
3. Group Support & Buddy System
Through group calls and the online platform, you will share insights, progress and personal feedback with one another throughout the weeks. Additionally, you will be paired with a "buddy" who will hold you accountable for your practice. These components will provide encouragement and accountability between the weekly calls and foster a sense of community and shared progress.
