Mindfulness

Stress undermines our health, performance at home and at work, and our enjoyment of life. Regular mindfulness meditation reduces stress, and improves focus and attention. We become calmer, better rested, and have a clear, open mind so we make better decisions and interact more successfully with others. Mindful leaders exhibit a confident presence that inspires peers and employees and leads to creative solutions to complex challenges. Training is offered individually and in small groups.

Specific programs include:

  • Expanding Leadership EQ through Mindfulness
  • Mindful Leadership: The Importance of Presence
  • “Breathe” your way to Healthy! Increase Wellness through Mindfulness
  • Beyond Work-Life Balance to Resilience
  • How to Manage Multiple Priorities and Stay Organized

Programs are custom designed, highly interactive and relevant to build trust, open communication, and inspire collaborative and creative problem solving. Team building is custom designed for the unique mission, vision, values and challenges of the organization.
