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

For bereaved parents the development of a continuing bond with the child who has died is a key element in their grieving and in how they manage the future. Using her experience of working in a children's hospital as a counsellor with bereaved parents, Catherine Seigal looks at how continuing bonds are formed, what facilitates and sustains them and what can undermine them. She reflects on what she learned about the counsellor's role supporting parents in extremely distressing…

Surviving Work in Healthcare: helpful stuff for people on the frontline

Posted by Jill Anderson on August 7, 2017 at 10:54 0 Comments

The book takes as its starting point the crisis of healthcare in the UK: impossible health targets managed through command and control management and a stomach-churning rise in racism, whistleblowing and victimisation in the NHS. The use of nationally set productivity targets combined with austerity cuts have increasingly put clinical best-practice into direct conflict with funding. Health targets have become politically controlled, and performance has become a cynical exercise in ticking…
