How do you become the leader your people want you to be? The truth is, effective leadership is less technical and more relational. Traditional leadership development, however, is not enough to teach leaders to intentionally and actively relate to others. Uvinie Lubecki and Anna Kawar will do a workshop focused on mindfulness and compassion as key competencies for leaders to deepen their connection to the people they work with and lead. Upon completion of this workshop, you will leave with tools you can implement to transform your leadership.

A big thank you to Designit for hosting this workshop at your offices:
450 Sansome Street, 9th floor, San Francisco, California 94111

Wisdom 2.0 2018 conference

Feb 23rd, 2018 - 2:00 - 2:45 pm PST

Connection is authentically and meaningfully relating to others. It's the building of a bridge that allows for understanding to flow freely. It honors our shared humanity and interdependence. Everyone has the capacity for connection, but the ability to connect can and has to be learned. It does not come through simple tools and frameworks. It comes through inner work and practice.

How can Leading Through Connection support entrepreneurship and leaders, especially as women, P.O.C., and under-represented groups?



May 31st, 2018 - 6:30 - 8:30 PST

There’s a predominant worldview that when we show up to work, we need to leave our humanity at home. As leaders, we work hard, sacrifice ourselves, and feel guilty when we take time off. The problem is, the way we treat ourselves is the lens by which we treat others. Without knowing how to extend compassion to oneself and people we work with, we are creating cultures that are leading to more stress and disengagement at work.

In this interactive workshop, you will:

  • Learn to develop awareness of how your thoughts and feelings impact your behavior while you're interacting with others

  • Learn practices to manage anxiety at work, as a form of self-compassion

  • Grapple with real-life scenarios and identify how you might extend compassion to others



June 4th, 2018 - 12:30 - 4:30 PST

Giving advice feels rewarding when we can truly help others. The challenge is, we don’t always know how to give it. We can sometimes feel like we’re not capable of giving advice, misread what someone means, or jump to solutions when the other person doesn’t want any. The good news, everyone is capable of giving meaningful advice when you take the time to really connect with them.

Our friends at Leading Through Connection will teach you a different taking on both giving and receiving advice through a fun, interactive activity.

  • Learn practices to genuinely relate to people, even when it’s difficult

  • Have the opportunity to test practices for connection with other attendees

Leading in the modern world requires an ability to manage constant change and complexity while staying connected to your teams, colleagues, and customers. Learning how to harness connection, the ability to authentically and meaningfully relate with others, amidst a busy work schedule and stress can transform your leadership. Most leadership programs focus on frameworks and tools without addressing the underlying fears and assumptions that can hold you back from effectively connecting with others. In this session, we will introduce an approach that integrates mindfulness and compassion as foundations for interacting with and leading others. We will also share and discuss the challenges specific to women leaders who make up just 17% of executive leadership.

Self-Care and Self-Compassion for Leaders

Leadership begins with the self. The lens by which we treat ourselves is the lens by which we treat others. Yet, knowing how to care for ourselves in this fast-paced, rapidly changing world can be difficult. In this lunch session, we will discuss how to realistically care for yourself as a leader and trade resources and practices for genuine self-compassion.
