Philadelphia, PA – The work environment today is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA). But productivity requires focused attention. So people need to acquire skills to remain focused, engaged and productive.
Orly Maravankin is the founder of Edge Consulting, a coaching and consulting firm specializing in executive coaching and mindful leadership programs in corporate settings. Coaching and mindfulness combined help leaders to build Emotional Intelligence (EI) — considered a key leadership competency and a key predictor of success.
Mindfulness trains the brain to focus attention on purpose. Leaders become more aware of what triggers them, learn to regulate triggers, manage emotions and reduce stress. They respond, not react. Self-awareness and self-management are 2 foundational EI skills.
“Mindful leadership is about how leaders show up” says Maravankin. “It relates to how they listen, how they speak and how they manage themselves. We know that leaders are at their best when they can stay tuned and really listen to what people on their team are trying to communicate, verbally and non-verbally. Everyone wants to know they are being heard and respected.”
“A big passion of mine is helping leaders excel in the environment today that can be so taxing to anyone, especially to leaders themselves because they are under enormous pressure. Mindfulness facilitates a mindset that is more relaxed and open for problem solving and creativity.
