Workplace coaching and mentoring has become an essential approach to developing both individual and team peak performance. Why? Because Coaching is forward-focused, keys in on outcomes, and how to get to those.

Mindfulness & Self-Care for Leaders December 15, 2020 - Virtual Class 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM CST Learn to be mindful while leading others. In order to be a great leader of others, you have to first take care of yourself. Everyone wants to know how to move forward in our organizations, but they don’t realize that it really starts internally, with you. That’s where self-leadership comes in. Self-care is consciously built into everything you do throughout your day—the physical, mental, and spiritual rituals built into your life. Join Rev. Paige Swaim-Presley and Rev. Dr. Joey Shelton to consider how mindfulness and self-care can keep you grounded in how best to serve others and remain productive in your work, even as you face personal difficulties. Your Instructors: Rev. Paige Swaim-Presley and Rev. Dr. Joey Shelton - are elders in the Mississippi Conference of the United Methodist Church. They have each been trained in spiritual direction through the Journey Partners program and have served on various planning teams and committees in the Mississippi Annual Conference.
