A Conversation about Mindfulness, Empowerment and Boundaries for Association Professionals

Discussions about mental health in the workplace have significantly increased over the past few years. This is a positive sign as the stigma is decreasing, but concerning if team members are suffering without a safe place to get help. Some organizations talk about mental health, establishing boundaries, and promoting self-care while others do not. 
As association professionals, how can we foster a positive, open environment where vulnerability and honesty can coexist with the pressures of a professional, high-performing association? How can we bring mindfulness practices to our roles working with volunteers so we can together advance the mission of the association? 

This session will explore key aspects of mindfulness and how it affects our roles as association professionals today.
