Sign up here to join us in conversation on Mindful Leadership: Inner Engineering for a Better World, co-hosted by Asia 21 Society and Social Innovation Park.
Amidst the complex changes escalated by the 4th Industrial Revolution, COVID-19 has unexpectedly put a pause button on or severely slowed down both economic and social activities. While physical distancing has hampered many service industries and impacted social cohesion, virtual activities have sent stock prices of e-companies skyrocketing. Many said it is time for the ‘Great Reset’, but others are noticing a distancing of the SDG goals.
2020 has required leaders, institutions, and citizens to respond not only to current world challenges but also to a global pandemic. Social media and news timelines place additional pressure on leaders to provide ‘instantaneous’ solutions to complex issues. How can leaders balance the need for speed (or urgency?) whilst still making good decisions?
In this new context, our panel aims to discuss the concept of mindful leadership through case study and personal experience. They will explore: What is mindfulness and mindful leadership? How does mindfulness help us navigate life and help us solve new complex challenges? Who uses this approach and is it working? How can it help, especially, in times of crisis?
