A Program for Individuals and Teams Looking to Take Their Performance to the Next Level
“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
—Jon Kabat Zinn
In our increasingly unpredictable and complex world, creating human-centered environments where highly engaged people can do their best work every day is critical. To that end, more and more organizations, from biotech to the military, are making mindfulness a cornerstone of their talent development and culture-building initiatives.
Mindfulness is a powerful tool that supports our capacity to be:
Creative and innovative; turning challenges into opportunities.
Centered and intentional; finding clarity amidst the noise.
Purposeful and values-driven; staying in integrity.
Resilient; able to bounce back from mistakes and failure.
Calm and composed; maintaining equanimity in the face of turmoil and conflict.
Open-minded and inclusive; making space for all the voices at the table.
Comfortable with ambiguity; navigating the winds of change with grace and ease.
Collaborative, relational, and empathetic; with high levels of social and emotional intelligence.
Motivated and engaged; with a focus on getting it done, and generating positive, sustainable results.
Learning to harness the power of mindfulness in our life and our leadership is a journey of a thousand steps. This program is the first (or the next) step.
This experiential and interactive program explores the fundamentals of mindfulness—what it is, how it works, the benefits and outcomes, and how it can be a genuine “performance superpower” for individuals and teams across the enterprise.
Throughout the program, we introduce easy-to-implement tools and techniques for expanding mindfulness and explore how to apply them in an organizational context.
The program is appropriate for people at all levels of the organization and is structured to be relevant to individuals new to mindfulness concepts, as well as those who have been practicing for many years.
