Leadership in the Moment: Becoming an “in the moment” leader.

Leadership in the Moment:

Becoming an “in the moment” leader.

No leader wants to be asleep at the wheel or miss that great new idea. Yet so many leaders–due to chronic stress, old habits, fear of change, and poor self-management–are failing to see the opportunities right in front of them.

In this presentation, Martin Boroson, author of One-Moment Meditation, presents a radical new approach to leadership development and time management.

He teaches you a simple exercise, derived from the practice of meditation, that can help you reduce stress, respond to change quickly, and develop true leadership presence. He will help you notice the moment, be in the moment, harness the power of the moment, and liberate momentum in yourself and your team.

REVIEW OF THIS PROGRAM:

This program was the opening keynote in 2012 for the “Executive Development Seminar for Interim and Aspiring Leaders” – a two-day boot-camp run by the Association of American Medical Colleges.

In their evaluations afterwards, the physician-leaders who attended were asked if this presentation was of “high quality”: 33% agreed and an additional 63% “strongly” agreed.

Comfortable in the Chaos: Leadership in a Time of Uncertainty

Comfortable in the Chaos:

Leadership in a Time of Uncertainty

In times of uncertainty, leaders can feel enormous pressure to come up with “the right decision.” They are expected to do something—anything—to solve the problem and remove everyone’s fear and anxiety.

Sadly, this can cause some leaders to engage in truly dangerous behavior: hasty decision-making, false bravado, failure to face facts, ethical lapses, and shameless attempts to shift the blame to others.

But a period of uncertainty, if handled wisely, can give you a remarkable opportunity. A period of uncertainty gives you the chance to preside over a process of reflection–a profound pause in which you take a step back, clarify core values, find new ideas and innovations, and radically re-vision the future. As a leader, you can also help other people become comfortable in the chaos … until a truly creative solution emerges.

In this inspirational keynote, Martin Boroson draws on the classic story of Siddhartha (by Herman Hesse), to give you a new model of leadership. He suggests that the traditional model of a “decisive leader” is failing us, and he offers you a model of leadership that is more appropriate to a time of anxiety and uncertainty. With this model as inspiration and support, you will be more able to see the opportunity in uncertainty, convert anxiety into creativity, and be truly ready for what might come.

REVIEW OF THIS PROGRAM:

This program was opening keynote at the Association of Business Psychologist’s Annual Conference (2009). Said the conference organizer, “Martin set the scene perfectly for the whole conference—inspiring us to access our power and potential. His work is truly impactful for those leaders who have experienced his way of thinking and, most importantly, way of being.”  — Jo Hennessy, PhD, Director of Research, Roffey Park

Stop the Stresscalation!: Stress is contagious ... Here's how to stop it in its tracks

You Can Stop the Stresscalation:

Stress is contagious … Here’s how to stop it in its tracks

According to the American Psychological Association (2010), a majority of Americans experience moderate or high levels of stress, and seventy-four percent of Americans identify their work as a significant source of their stress. Ironically, this workplace stress causes them to make errors and suffer health problems that actually diminish their productivity at work.

In this playful, profound, and yet very practical program, Martin Boroson gives you a whole new perspective on why life has become so stressful. He shows you how your own state of mind perpetuates it, and shows you what to do about it.

Martin Boroson is the author of “One-Moment Meditation: Stillness for People on the Go,” now published in ten languages. He created the series “Transform Stress in 30-days for Oprah.com” and his short animated video, “How to meditate in a moment” has been seen by over 500,000 people.

In this program, he shows you how stress is highly contagious, and he teaches you a simple, practical tool that you can use to stop the “stresscalation.” In other words, you will learn how to avoid picking up stress from other people … and you will also learn how to not “dump onto others what was just dumped onto you.”

You will leave with a practical technique that you can use to restore peace at home, covert crowded days into spacious ones, and play your part in creating a happier, more productive workplace.

But most of all, Martin shows you how to turn your dream of a stress-free life from a far-off fantasy into a present-day reality. For the real key to stress relief is that it only takes a moment, and that moment is right now.

It Only Takes a Moment: One-Moment Meditation® for Busy Professionals

It Only Takes a Moment

One-Moment Meditation® for Busy Professionals

These days, everyone knows that meditation is “good for you.” It’s on that list of things you “should” do, like going to the gym, saving for your retirement, and flossing.

Indeed, study after study is proving that meditation reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and strengthens the immune system. It also improves focus, productivity, empathy, decision-making, and our ability to take effective action. Indeed its applications for workforce wellness and peak performance are so significant that, someday soon, meditation could become a required skill.

Yet so many people believe they can’t do it. Or they don’t have time for it. Or meditation seems too “far out” and exotic. Or they just can’t imagine how they would be able to bring any peace of mind into their busy, stressful lives.

In this program, Martin Boroson gives you basic training in his playful, profound, but above all, practical technique of One-Moment Meditation.

Martin Boroson is the author of “One-Moment Meditation: Stillness for People on the Go” now published in ten languages and featured as a 30-day course on stress relief for Oprah.com. His animated short video, “How to meditate in a moment” has been seen by over 500,000 people worldwide.

Martin has presented this program in keynotes and training sessions for corporate leaders, physicians, nurses, and stressed-out students. In it, he teaches you the core of One-Moment Meditation–a short, simple, but powerful exercise that you can do wherever you are–at your desk, in the car, on a train, before a meeting, or even during a meeting.

He also gives you a new twist on time management–in that you will learn how to make a meaningful change in your state of mind quickly. Indeed, he inspires you to use those otherwise “wasted” moments as extraordinary opportunities to refresh your mind, see things more clearly, and be truly ready for what’s coming next.

Martin’s core message is that having a calm, focused mind is not a distant goal, reserved for saints, sages or samurai masters.  Nor does it take a long time to discover that mind. It only takes a moment. And that moment is now.
