Upgrading Leaders founder, Stephen Presley, Ph.D., offers a 21st-century approach to online leadership development for leaders at all levels, including executives, managers, hi-potentials, team and project leaders, and business professionals. A foundational aspect of the Upgrading Leaders approach is a dual-track focus on Mindfulness Practices and Leadership Practices. Mindfulness practices provide a kind of 'mental gym' for leaders to build new and expanded capacities, essentially upgrading the human operating system, the mind. The end result is better performance and leadership.
How does this happen? Through cause and effect. By improving one skill set (mindfulness practices) leaders can then improve a dozen or more other skill sets that drive leadership. Research on mindfulness and meditation since the 1970s provides evidence of this claim.
