International education is faster, more complex and daringly digital than ever before. We operate in a world driven to distraction with emails, notifications and increasing demands for our attention. In such a fast-paced environment, how do great leaders slow down and focus to make thoughtful decisions?

This new (and ever-evolving) reality demands a new style of leadership. Enter the mindful leader. Mindfulness enables you to clear your mind of clutter and concentrate on what is important. Individuals who can focus, inspire and engage their teams will be best positioned for success.

This masterclass will help you develop the authenticity, self-awareness and global nous required of the next generation of international education leaders.

Key interest area: Business development and strategy (BD&S)
