Modern Mindfulness - A Two-hour Master Class

Join us for a comprehensive overview and some hands-on experience with today’s secular, science-based mindfulness. What is modern mindfulness, and where did it come from? Why has it so captured the attention of mainstream science and the media — why are so many olympians, professional athletes and other elite performers practicing it — and why is it increasingly being taught in elementary and secondary schools, universities and graduate programs?

Whether you are starting a personal mindfulness practice — looking for strategies to reduce stress and distraction in your workplace — or evaluating mindfulness as an intervention for health and wellness, employee engagement or leadership development — this class offers an important and informative baseline.

Mindfulness @ Work - A Four-Week Intensive Workshop

Join us for an intensive course in mindfulness, presented live-on-the-web in four 90-minute workshops — with step-by-step home study and 90-days of self-paced mobile learning to help you establish a sustainable practice. Two decades of research in neuroscience and psychology, and over 4,000 individual studies have proven that mindfulness physically changes the brain, and produces a remarkable array of physical, intellectual and emotional benefits. This course gives you the detailed understanding, the hands-on practice, the tools, resources and 24/7 support to get started, and stay on the path.

Mindfulness is an investment in your personal health and happiness AND your professional capabilities. Many of the “personal” benefits you gain are exactly the attributes your organization most values. Positive, engaged and emotionally intelligent people perform at a higher level, are more productive, are a pleasure to collaborate with, and become the most effective leaders. Mindfulness also increases attention control, situational awareness, clarity and concentration — improves logic, strategy, critical thinking and decision-making skills — and strengthens self-awareness, empathy and compassion, communication and influence.

Mindful Leadership Certification - A Six-Week Certification Program

Join us for a deep-dive at the intersection of modern mindfulness and leadership — and the learn the science-based practices that every major business school, including Harvard, Wharton, Stanford and Kellogg, are now incorporating into their core curriculum.

Effective leadership in today’s VUCA world requires extraordinary mental strength. It is increasingly difficult to lead amid the chaos of information overload, digital distraction, disrupting technologies and constant change. Leaders are grappling with a multi-generational, increasingly virtual, and largely disengaged workforce — They’re under intense pressure, often overworked, overwhelmed and short on bandwidth for big-picture problem solving.

In this challenging environment, mindfulness is a Superpower — It relieves stress, while it improves cognitive performance and emotional intelligence — It gives leaders the attention control to stay in the present, concentrate deeply and communicate intuitively — and the emotional intelligence to influence and mobilize others. Mindfulness represents a new and important inflection point in management science.

Mindfulness and Mental Fitness

What were once immutable traits, are now trainable skills.

Modern Mindfulness

Better You. Better Team. Better Enterprise.

Mindfulness changes the structure and function of the brain, in a manner that produces a remarkable array of positive results. In ten years, meditation will be a standard public health checkbox for mental fitness, alongside a healthy diet and exercise for the body. Today, it’s a proven path to happiness and high performance, and a competitive advantage for those who practice it in their personal and professional lives.

Better You

Mindful meditation is a rigorous fitness program for your brain. Like exercise (but even more powerfully), a small investment during your day can dramatically relieve your stress and anxiety, reduce your exposure to chronic illness, improve your relationships and increase your feelings of overall happiness and well-being.

Neuroscience has proven that the brain is trainable, and that you can develop the mental and emotional strength to concentrate and execute more effectively in your personal life and professional career. As a result, professional sports teams, elite athletes, special forces and top business schools are all adopting mindful meditation as a tool for achieving excellence and extraordinary performance.

In ten years, meditation will be a standard public health checkbox for brain fitness, alongside a healthy diet and exercise for the body. Today, it is a competitive advantage for those who practice and apply it in their personal and professional lives.

Better Team

Many of us are working harder, longer hours, across more projects, with little or no recognition — in an environment of escalating demands, constant change and toxic stress. As a leader, you’ve almost certainly experienced the difficulties of effectively communicating, collaborating, resolving conflict and managing change in today’s attention-deficit, exhausted and overwhelmed workforce.

Mindfulness offers hope, as a remarkably effective toolset for reducing workplace static and restoring rationality. The calm and emotional intelligence developed through mindful meditation can be a powerful new starting point for you — and for the people you lead, manage and work alongside.

Better Enterprise

Leading agile, smart creatives across cultural, geographic and generational boundaries is less about command-and-control, and about more clarity-and-wisdom. Top-down, industrial-era management techniques tend to create oppositional behaviors and disengaged workers, falling far short of the compassionate people-skills that elicit high performance from today’s workforce.

Trust, generated by the true authenticity, self-awareness and compassion of mindfulness, is the scarce resource and most valuable currency in the workplace today. Clearing toxicity and re-engaging workers begins with a change in the emotional maturity and behavior of their leaders.

Mindful leaders, with the emotional intelligence to inspire, re-engage and motivate others, are rare and truly transformational.
