Episode Description

Big results come from small steps. If you think you don’t have time for mindfulness, think again. This handbook, named a Best Courageous Book of 2014 by The Center for Courage and Renewal, was written with school leaders in mind, but the perspective that it offers can help any leader with a challenging work load and endless responsibilities to gain perspective and inner balance. When leaders add mindfulness into the day, bit by bit, it results in more effective leadership – and a more positive influence on faculty, staff and students. Join Host Kate Ebner for a conversation with Kirsten Olson, co-author of The Mindful School Leader to explore how practicing mindful can fit into your busy schedule – and transform your leadership and your organization.

Georgetown ITL Faculty

The faculty of the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University are multifaceted and diverse with respect to academic training, practical experience, expertise, and research interests. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the faculty is the community they have cultivated and the dialog they have advanced around leadership development and leadership coaching. Most of the original faculty members – those who helped establish Georgetown University’s leadership coaching program in 2000 – still teach and provide direction for leadership coaches and executive leaders, while new perspectives continue to evolve and inform our programs.

At the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University, the faculty are exploring new transformative models of leadership, work, and change that can transform individuals, organizations, communities, governments and the global society. Join them each week for exciting conversations about transformational leadership.
