What does Mindfulness have to do with leadership? What are its benefits for you as a leader, your team and for your workplace?

Inaugurating the new season of The Chat Box, Dr. Theresa Ricke-Kiely, author of the forthcoming book on mindful leadership, brings this essential topic to League members. She will help participants to understand why Mindfulness is important to both practice and role model to others. Join us to learn how to integrate simple practices and share your own, and have a conversation about its benefits for individuals, leaders and teams. 


Dr. Theresa Ricke-Kiely is the executive director of the Center for the Common Good at the University of St. Thomas in St Paul, Minnesota. She has over 20 years of experience teaching leadership, has published in various national and international journals, and in 2022, she was awarded a Fulbright.  Her current research focuses on mindful leadership, and she is writing a book on the topic for mission-focused organizations. She earned a BA from SUNY New Paltz, an MPA from Marist College, and an Ed.D. in organizational leadership from the University of Sarasota.
