Mindful Leadership Workshop with Janice Marturano

The Provost's office, in collaboration with the Faculty Hub, is offering a Mindful Leadership workshop for faculty and staff. Whether you teach, supervise, coach, direct, or work to advance personal or professional goals, mindful leadership can create space for creative solutions and allow you to become more comfortable with uncertainty and adversity. Mindfulness approaches may help you to recognize ineffective patterns, listen and innovate, and connect with your innate abilities to respond more effectively to daily challenges.

Faculty and staff are invited to a 90-minute virtual workshop (on Zoom) on Friday, November 12 from 3-4:30 p.m. with Janice Marturano, author of Finding the Space to Lead: A Practical Guide to Mindful Leadership. This session is designed for those who have yet to explore mindfulness practices, as well as those who regularly practice mindfulness. Registration is limited and includes Ms. Marturano's book. If you have questions about the workshop, please contact Jennifer Cable.

Please sign up here. Questions may be directed to Linda Boland.

Janice Marturano

Janice Marturano is the Founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Mindful Leadership, a non-profit organization dedicated to training and supporting leaders in the exploration of mindfulness and the fundamentals of leadership excellence. She founded the Institute for Mindful Leadership in January 2011, after ending her 15-year tenure as Vice President, Public Responsibility, and Deputy General Counsel for General Mills, Inc.

Janice was a strategic leader within General Mills for nearly 15 years before leaving to dedicate herself full time to the Institute. While fulfilling her duties as a corporate officer at General Mills, she also co-developed the very first mindful leadership curricula at the University of Massachusetts Medical School's Center for Mindfulness where she served as a member of the Advisory Board. As a certified teacher of mindfulness and an experienced former officer of a Fortune 200 company, she has brought the intensive training of mindful leadership to leaders from all forms of organizations-corporate, non-profit, academic, government and military. In 2013, she was invited to share her understanding of the importance of mindful leadership at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and again at the 2014 World Economic Forum Conference in Tianjin, China.

Janice's work has been featured on BBC, HuffPost Live, and in The New York Times, Financial Times, Saturday Evening Post, Time, and Los Angeles Times. Her book, Finding the Space to Lead has become required reading at business schools, such as Columbia, NYU, and USC. It has been or is being translated into many languages including French, Norwegian, Spanish, Polish, German, Chinese, and Korean.
