Conscious Leadership: Why Leadership is Mostly About Paying Attention

Sarah Young, Zing Collaborative
June 25, 2015 from Noon-1pm (central)
Webinar PowerPoint

SarahLeadership is largely about paying attention - to how we show up, to the words we speak, to the impact we have, to others, and to what is happening around us. The truth is, this can be hard. We are busy. We juggle a lot. We are taking in more information than ever before (there are 40,000 Google searches happening every second). During this webinar, we will explore what it means to lead in a more conscious way by looking closely at the way we show up, the words we speak, and the impact we have. You’ll leave with practical tools you can apply right away.

 What you'll gain from this webinar:
  • Understand what "conscious leadership" means and how it looks in everyday life
  • Specific practices, structures, and routines that will support you leading in a more conscious and compelling way
  • Tools and approaches to create a positive impact with other people and in your environment
  • Strategies for successfully leading with challenging people and in difficult situations

Sarah Young is the founder of Zing Collaborative, a leadership-focused change management and coaching company. Sarah works with organizations, teams, and individuals to make an impact in way that leads to great results and to a feeling of aliveness. She believes that leadership is something we do in all areas of our lives – at work, at home, and out in the world. Prior to launching Zing Collaborative, Sarah studied business at the Carlson School of Management (U of MN) and then spent 8 years leading people, projects, teams, and large divisions in the healthcare IT industry. It was during this time that she became obsessed with human potential and the possibilities we create when our strengths, passions, talents, and values are aligned. On the weekends, you’ll find her somewhere in nature, on a mini-road trip exploring somewhere new, or hanging out with her favorite two-legged and four-legged companions.
