    Event Description:

    Bestselling Author Emily BenningtonBestselling Author Emily Bennington will present "How the Most Remarkable Leaders Think: An Introduction to Mindful Leadership" at the Charleston Area Alliance Elevations Professional Women’s Network Luncheon at noon Monday, Nov. 13 at the Charleston Marriott. 

    A Charleston native, Bennington is the bestselling author of three books and the founder of AWAKE EXEC™ mindful wisdom at work. Her programs and courses deep dive into “the space” between stimulus and response where she challenges professionals to choose intentional, values-centered action.

    Presented with title sponsorship from Dow Chemical, the Elevations luncheon and workshop series supports the economic enrichment and empowerment of women in the Kanawha Valley. 

    To effectively lead yourself and others, you have to understand the cause and effect relationship between what you think and what you do. Since what you do is the driver of your results, if you want those results to be better you have to go to the source, meaning you must shift your thinking in a way that takes full responsibility for how you experience your own life.

    This presentation will show you how to do just that through a process designed to help you respond to your circumstances – whatever they are – from an empowered place, rather than simply reacting to the chaos that surrounds us all. You’ll learn the “Four Questions” process for wise decision-making, you’ll be introduced to a proven tool psychologists use to interrupt negative thought patterns, and you’ll also receive a virtues, intentions, and goals template that will clarify your most important leadership behaviors. Indeed, with the level of disruption and uncertainty in business today, we must all respond to these and other pressures with greater poise, agility, and patience than ever before. Come discover how a practice that started more than two thousand years ago is your leadership edge of today.

    Named one of Monster.com’s 11 Career Experts to Follow, Bennington has led training programs on composure for numerous Fortune 500 companies and has been featured in press ranging from CNN, ABC, and Fox, to the Wall Street Journal, Glamour, Marie Claire, and Cosmopolitan. Her blog, Grace, touches a growing tribe of thousands seeking a holistic approach to being in the world and, while her blog is gender-neutral, Forbes has listed Emily’s site as one of the “100 Best Websites for Women.”

    Elevations with Emily Bennington is presented with supporting sponsorship from Appalachian Power and United Bank.

    Invoicing is available for groups of 10 or more. No refunds are issued within 48 hours of the event.
