Partnered Thought Leadership Event with Meditation4Leadership & Philly SHRM

During meditation, we practice being in the present moment with full attention and without judgement.  Greater awareness in the present moment allows us to see problems and solutions that we may have previously overlooked.  Meditation practice can also assist us in learning how to be a better listener and break down the barriers to meaningful relationships, as well as assist us in maintaining balance and reducing stress.   Ultimately, learning to meditate is about becoming the best version of yourself. The impact can be life changing, both personally and professionally.

This 90-minute program highlights the science behind how meditation affects physical change in the brain and body and explains the how and why the lessons derived from meditation practice are universal.  Meditation practice can make you a more effective HR professional and assist the leaders and managers in your organization to be more effective in their jobs, thus improving the performance of the entire organization.  During this session, we will learn how meditation helps us to be more aware, to focus, to listen with greater attunement, to respond instead of react, to rebalance during times of stress and to develop a growth mindset.  We will also address the particular challenges we are all facing during this Covid-19 created period of isolation as we explore emotional mindfulness and LovingKindness meditation practices. We will also discuss how HR leaders can assist their colleagues in need with group meditation training offerings, as well as one-on-one coaching. 

Please join us for this interactive experiential program with our esteemed panel including Steven M. Cohen, author of Leading From Within:  A Guide to Maximizing Your Effectiveness Through Meditation, Lisa Jacobs, President of Meditation4Leadership, Melissa Severance, executive and leadership coach with over 15 years of professional services firm human resources experience and Lisa Specter, a certified Leadership Coach and certified Yoga instructor with 20 years of human resources management experience with diverse Fortune 500 organizations. The program will include discussion of the benefits of meditation; diverse meditation techniques practiced together, explanation of the practical benefits of meditation for human resources professionals, and an ability to ask questions.  You will leave this program with easy to use meditation tools and techniques and access to resources to bring these techniques to your organization.
