Community builders are required to be dynamic, creative and adaptable leaders, who must be conscious and aware of every aspect of their community in order to ensure that it meets (and exceeds) the expectations of both community members and their organization. To do this effectively, community builders are required to be mindful individuals; this mindfulness, however, is not something that always comes easy, but when done correctly, can make a world of a difference.
Join this on-demand workshop led by Christina Costelo, Head of Community Engagement at Mindful Schools, which has provided training for more than 50 thousand educators across the world, impacting an estimated 3 million students. This workshop will deliver the knowledge and insight necessary to be a mindful community builder, and will provide you with a solid understanding of:
- How to practice mindfulness as a community manager and the benefits it can have when making community decisions.
- How to set clear intentions that will allow for your best self and best work to shine through.
- How to create meaningful feedback loops and how to communicate them clearly to the community.
- How to use mindfulness practice to help inform your community development.
Christina has been developing community since 2011 and is the Head of Community Engagement at Mindful Schools, which is a non-profit organization that helps cultivate greater self-awareness, resilience, focus and compassion in schools. The Mindful Schools branded community, Homeroom, is slated to launch in early 2020, and will be a place for mindful educators to connect, learn and thrive. She has a Masters in Sociology from UC Santa Cruz and when she isn’t building and supporting mindful communities, she’s exploring the forests of the PNW with her family or painting glitter rainbows on canvas.
