The Importance of Mindful Leadership

Did you know that both men and women are equally bad at multi-tasking and whatever we do we do better if we give it our whole?

Vicki Curtis of Indigo Square will discuss what is meant by mindfulness and how it can be applied to the role of leader at SPVS VMG Congress 2020, sharing evidence from both the UK and elsewhere.  She will also describe how you can apply the principles in practice to become a better, happier and more fulfilled leader.
Vicki has worked in the field of Leadership and Organisation Development for over 25 years. With her early career spanning clients including MacMillan and the NHS, Vicki became partner in an international development consultancy, following her Masters Degree in Organisation Consulting from Ashridge Business School.
Vicki’s last in-house role was for Nuffield Health, as Head of Leadership and Organisation Development. Here Vicki commissioned research into wellbeing in the workplace and piloted innovative programmes around mindfulness and mindful leadership.
Now heading up her own consultancy, Vicki works with a range of clients across different sectors and industries. Still working in human healthcare (both private and public sectors) Vicki developed the Compassionate Leadership through Mindfulness and the Personal Impact and Influence Programmes for the Leadership Faculty of the Kings Fund (NHS focused).
