Mindful Warrior Leadership Program:
The Mindful Warrior Leadership Program is an experience that is guaranteed to be like no other offered at Westchester Community College. As a member of this selective program, students have the opportunity to enhance leadership skills, intentionally elevate their individual self-concept, develop an enhanced awareness regarding one’s individual life purpose and foster a heightened sense of clarity and compassion towards both self and others.
This program is an 8-week leadership development series that utilizes servant leadership, humanistic, and mindfulness principles/tools to assist with reducing stress and strengthening individual leadership practices. Students that participate in this program will enhance cognitive skills that support their academic performance, strengthen overall well-being, cultivate positive psychological states, and reduce anxiety.
Here is what a past member of the Mindful Warrior Leadership Program had to say about this experience:
“The Mindful Warrior Program encourages awareness of thought behaviors, remaining present when enduring internal or external stressors, and how body language can have an effect on the individual as well as whom it’s being displayed too. Learning to remain in the moment, not to dwell on the past, and to dismantle anxiety about the future. Engaging with others genuinely with reciprocity, building a conversation instead of just waiting for the cue to respond…. How applying thoughtfulness methods allows for improved communication and understanding among individuals working together, regardless of the adversity…The Mindful Warrior Program has improved my experience of life and I am grateful to have been a part of a program with a wholesome mission.” – Joe C., FA 2019 Mindful Warrior
