To prepare for the discussion, please review this quote:
"There is an important relationship between the psychology of learning, as we understand it today, and the growing consensus among philosophers and epistemologists that new knowledge creation is a constructive process involving both our knowledge and our emotions or the drive to create new meanings and new ways to represent these meanings. Learners struggling to create good concept maps are themselves engaged in a creative process, and this can be challenging, especially to learners who have spent most of their life learning by rote. Rote learning contributes very little at best to our knowledge structures, and therefore cannot underlie creative thinking or novel problem solving" (Novak & Canas, 2008).
The purpose of our PDN is to bring together managers and supervisors within our industry to discuss topics of interest, current industry trends, collaborate on best practices, and connect with other colleagues in similar roles. Our goal is to help members of this network improve professionally and bring greater value to the organizations they serve.

Please join us for an insightful session with Susan Lubar Solvang and learn to integrate mindfulness practices into your talent development process. Mindfulness inspires and empowers us to lead from a place of self–awareness, clarity, and kindness. By incorporating purposeful pauses to manage stress and step out of automatic, conditioned patterns, you can begin to cultivate nourishing habits for yourself and and guide others from a place intentionality and vitality. When practiced regularly, these simple moments can encourage us to see the world with curiosity and compassion and creating stronger and more trusting relationships, allowing for better outcomes.
Susan is a leader in the Milwaukee area when it comes to mindfulness. She runs a non-profit organization, Growing Minds, Inc., in Milwaukee teaching mindfulness skills to those who depend on safe and trusting relationships for successful leadership. She has worked with Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co., University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee Area Technical College, Alverno College, the Milwaukee Public Schools, and many other businesses.
Everyone has the natural ability to bring their attention to what they are doing in the present moment. Being mindful is learning how to extend and maintain those moments of focus to bring awareness to one’s daily emotional patterns, creating a platform to interrupt and retrain oneself for more conscious choice-making. After repeated practice, neural connections develop which help rewire our patterns and develop constructive habits of thinking and acting. These simple, yet powerful practices can be used throughout the day to emotionally reset when needed. They can be used anywhere and anytime to manage emotions, reframe situations and step back from depleting thoughts.
