Event Description

Effective leadership in the 21st century requires resilience, empathy and clear-minded decision-making in the face of constant change. How do leaders intentionally cultivate these capacities?

Endemic stress in knowledge-based jobs is causing widespread absence and loss of productivity, eroding creativity and collaboration.  How can employers address this?

Around a third of young people now report mental health problems, a burden on university services but more importantly with significant implications for academic attainment, retention and employability. How might leaders deploy mindfulness interventions to prevent distress and boost performance?

The Mindfulness in Higher Education one-day conference will address how mindfulness training can help to answer these questions and explore:

  • the importance of wellbeing and emotional intelligence, particularly in the coming ‘fourth industrial revolution’
  • the rapid adoption of mindfulness training in the private sector to improve wellbeing, performance and relationships
  • international examples of good practice in mindfulness training for students
  • world-leading mindfulness research in UK universities
  • how mindfulness practice helps leaders to enhance ‘metacognition’, the capacity to notice thoughts, emotions and intuitions with some perspective, so that they have more freedom to choose informed responses.

The development of Mindfulness in Higher Education is a collaboration between the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education, The Mindfulness Initiative and Universities UK
