As leaders we are constantly making decisions that affect ourselves and those around us. We can certainly build the skills to do this efficiently and effectively, but how do we make these decisions ethically? Our guest speaker Adam Frank, Dean of Student Affairs Westchester Community College, will be giving a special talk about how to do just that.

Mindful Leadership

Tuesday, November 17, 7:30 pm, Hudson Glass Lounge

We all have had days where it seems as if we are thinking about a million things at once and we try to juggle too many tasks. This can lead us to become stressed out, anxious and less productive. When we use mindfulness strategies, we focus our attention, clear our thoughts and open our minds. In this session, students will learn how to handle stress in a healthy way. These lifelong strategies will help students become mindful leaders to create a happier and more productive environment for themselves and others.
