    “Mindfulness is paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgement.” - Jon Kabat-Zinn

    In order for our learners to get the most out of their virtual sessions we need to keep them in the moment and focused on their learning objectives. How do we do this in our growing virtual world? Mindfulness plays a big role in how we operate on a daily basis, same goes for our learners.

    Distractions play a bigger part when facilitating virtually, and not only that but fears and insecurities about the past and future can make it difficult to fully appreciate the present moment.

    When you understand these things you can ask better questions to create an overall better learning experience. Knowing where your learner is at in the moment and what they need most will translate into better engagement overall.

    All of these reasons are why we need to make sure as facilitators we are not just reciting memorized material but are fully present for our learners.

    In this session Lauren will cover how to be mindful in your own life and bring that mindfulness into your virtual sessions. She will explain why it's so important to understand your learners mindset as well as what they need/want to get out of your sessions with them.

    Participants will learn how to do this and walk away with applicable strategies to incorporate in their own sessions right away.

    Learning Objectives:

    • What is mindfulness and how can you incorporate into your own life.

    • Understand the importance of bringing mindfulness into the virtual classroom and learn how to do this.

    • Learn how mindfulness can help you ask better questions to create better virtual learning experiences.

    Learning Objective(s):

    • Define Cognitive Load Explain how Cognitive Load works in the learning brain

    2020 has called all of us to reflect and grow in ways we couldn’t have possibly imagined. The day-to-day that seemed so routine and predictable has been flipped on it’s head in 2020. Leaders have now been asked to support their teams in a global crisis while still being required to deliver great results to our customers, clients and patients. Leaders have been called to walk the fine line of tending to the people on their teams while still ensuring that individuals are living in a high-state of accountability. This complex balance has challenged everyone to some deeper personal reflection and called us to new levels of greatness when it comes to our ability to move forward with uncertainty. In the midst of pivoting to the “new normal” and making sure tasks are still completed, many have turned down the dial on our own wellness and mindfulness. In this session, leaders will come to understand a simple and practical model for gracefully leading teams through the 5 stages of crisis or uncertain times which will help discern moments to grow accountability in the individuals they lead Leaders will review the core concepts of the No Ego philosophy and learn the common sources of drama at work to ensure everyone they interact with is understanding how their mind works and our common defaults in times of stress that can amplify into grander problems both physically and emotionally. Lastly, leaders will learn some simple tools that fuel connection and clarity that help prevent division, judgment and disconnection from teams especially in a more virtual world.

    Learning Objective(s):

    At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

    • Understanding of the 5 stages of leading teams through crisis and uncertain times
    • Use coaching tools to tend to the person first and then evolve our teams through self-reflection
    • Foster accountability while balancing grace and empathy with their teams
    • Implement simple mental processes to fuel your personal wellness through understanding how the mind works during uncertainty
