HBR@Work: Becoming a Mindful Leader

Presented by Harvard Business Review

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Study after study shows that employees are more disengaged and uninspired than ever. The solution lies not in more management training or fun off-sites, but in looking within — into the mind of the leader.

Based on their decades of research and practice, Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter have found that three qualities stand out as being foundational for leaders today: mindfulness, selflessness and compassion. Together, they are the authors of The Mind of the Leader: How to Lead Yourself, Your People, and Your Organization for Extraordinary Results.

In this HBR@Work event, Hougaard and Carter will show how these three traits are the secret to better performance at work, and how leaders at any level and in any role can put them into practice daily.
