21 Feb 2017 (5 – 6.30pm) Mindfulness for Mediators & Negotiators

Being mindful gives ADR practitioners the opportunity to recognise and respond skilfully to whatever is arising in the moment, even in the heat of conflict. To strengthen your ability to be mindful at work you will be introduced to the practice of mindfulness, which, over time, increases mental acuity and focus, promotes freedom from habitual judgments and reactions, builds our capacity to be fully present in the moment to better assist parties in resolving their issues.

Practicing mindfulness lowers stress and promotes clarity and calm. The practice of mindfulness involves developing an open and clear-sighted perspective on yourself and your life.
