Developing Conscious Leaders & Mindful Workplaces

"I know what it feels like to have the overwhelming pressure of delivering results and driving the bottom line at the expense of people’s well-being. Stress, long hours and huge personal sacrifices become an incubator for disengagement and drama at work and at home. I can also relate to the rapid rate we consume information, and the impact this has on our productivity, creativity, and overall performance. So it’s no wonder, most of us have experienced mental exhaustion and lack of fulfillment. We are at a critical time where novel leadership strategies are needed so we can thrive individually and collectively. Mindfulness supports leaders to foster mental clarity and resilience so they can remain responsive rather than reactive in the age of constant distractions."
