When you lead from a place of wellbeing, you inspire and motivate your team to do the same, creating a ripple effect that can transform your organization. This course will help you identify the benefits self-care can bring to leaders, implement techniques to develop mindfulness as a leadership trait, identify effective strategies to assess your personal wellbeing, and choose effective self-care strategies to better manage leadership challenges.
