How to manage adversity, ambiguity and increasing complexity?
ESADE Alumni Careers invites you to a flash session about the advantages of a resilient mind for managers and executives and how to develop one in order to handle a VUCA setting. This talk will explain how mindfulness can strengthen the brain circuits that facilitate resilience and boost other circuits related to wellbeing.
• How to cultivate individual and group resilience
• The impact on decision taking
• The main sources of resilience
• Sense of coherence model and resistance model.
Participants will also practice mindfulness, which can then be used as a platform for exploring everyday strategies, learn how to develop quality control for thinking in order to be in the zone, and also how to train the mind in a be-do mode. The workshop will end with personal training plans for developing these skills.
The session will be led by Andrés Martín Asuero, BSc, MBA and PhD in Psychology, co-founder and director of Instituto esMindfulness (www.esmindfulness.com), and president of Spain’s association of MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) coaches. Andrés introduced the MBSR programme into Spain in 2004 and currently works as a facilitator in leadership and stress reduction in companies and hospitals. He has written several books including Plena mente, mindfulness o el arte de estar presente (Ed. Planeta, 2015).
