March Chapter Event: Mindful Leadership

Thursday, March 15th (5:30pm-8pm)

Today's World - We live and work in a new world that is hyper-connected, fast changing, and shaped by VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity). Constant distractions and information overload make it more difficult for people to remain focused and engaged at work. VUCA creates stress. Plus, there is an emerging trend of employees looking for meaning, connection and happiness at work.
Today’s workplace calls for people that have highly focused and clear minds; those who are adaptable, resilient in the face of challenges and can lead with emotional intelligence.
Mindful Leadership programs are designed to help people achieve precisely that – acquire skills to become more effective and focused at work. The benefits of mindfulness programs are concrete and tangible according to both scientists and business leaders; they include stronger performance, better leadership and improved overall wellbeing.
Speaker - Orly Maravankin, PhD

Member Testimonial

The first annual ATD Philadelphia regional conference in 2012 came at exactly the right time for me. I was beginning to transition from a career as a face-to-face adult learning director at a local college into workplace education. A bigger shift than I anticipated. I found out about the conference two days before it was to be held, and signed up. That day I met wonderful people from varied corners of the field, and attended captivating sessions. I left convinced that I was moving in the right direction. I kept coming back for more. I immediately was inspired to become active on the conference program committee. My participation affords me the opportunity to interact with thought leaders in the Training & Development field; this is a much richer experience than just being in the audience. 

It’s not easy to change careers in midlife. My friends through ATD-PHL have been trusted resources pointing me to new and interesting positions, and have helped me get noticed. In fact, I landed in my current position because an ATD presenter/mentor knew someone who I wanted to know.

I almost always feel the SIG gatherings and chapter events are worthwhile. Sometimes I attend simply because I enjoy the networking, camaraderie, and friendship!

I highly recommend membership. No regrets! Please join me.
