The Science of Leadership

BluEra was excited to host an exclusive event with Dr. Julian Barling on Tuesday. His talk inspired us and our guests to think about how we can create an environment where employees “love” their jobs, “want” to do a great job, and “believe” their work is absolutely essential. Leadership is about being ethical, inspirational, developmental, and relational.  We began with a minute of counting our breaths to become more present and receptive to the material Dr. Barling provided.  His book is entitled, The Science of Leadership.

We learned that leadership is all about the moments. What is the smallest thing you can do to improve your teams self-perception, their work experiences, and create trust?

Living From The Inside Out

On March 11th 2014, the new MBA class at Queen’s University gathered to spend a day listening to speakers, entering into mindfulness practices, and doing self awareness activities, to continue to learn how to live from the inside out. Catherine Bell, co-founder of BluEra and Queen’s MBA Graduate, led the workshop along with Constance Kellough, Founder and President of Namaste Publishing, and Dr. Julian Barling, Borden Chair of Leadership at Queen’s School of Business.  Elspeth Murray, Associate Professor & Associate Dean of MBA Programs, was bold in making this event happen.

Their intent was for the students to contemplate how living from the inside out could make a huge difference to the quality of their lives, those around them in the business world, and by extension, humanity as a whole.
