Manage your Vitality, Balance & Resilience

In this age of increasing stress & burn-out risk, it is essential that people develop personal leadership to successfully manage own energy levels, boundaries, priorities and work-life balance. Young people especially need to learn to navigate the overload of information, requests and changes coming to them and make authentic choices: both at work and in private.

Mindfulness training – at its fundamental level – helps do just that.

But Mindfulness is not a relaxation tool: it trains attention skills layer by layer. The ‘Mindfulness fundamentals’ layer increases (self-)awareness of distractors; stress triggers; physical-; emotional- & mental reactions to stressors. Participants learn to recognize and manage their own vitality, boundaries, priorities & balance. And give an authentic, flexible response under pressure.

Mindfulness Fundamentals Program - Employees (5x 3 hours)

Goal of this training: Develop Personal Leadership in managing own energy, boundaries & balance at work (home will thank you for it).

Mindfulness is not a relaxation tool. Mindfulness training is an awareness training. Daily practice builds awareness of our personal stress reaction: when and why it gets triggered and what our automated patterns of reactivity are. Rooted in Neuroscience, this training helps participants to start to recognise when functional stress (=adrenaline to boost performance) spills over into dysfunctional stress and how this phenomena affects body, mind, mood, balance & effectiveness at work.

In 5 modules + daily home practice (commitment needed!) people learn how to recognise and manage their energy and boundaries. They start to see through stress triggers, automatic patterns of reactivity and learn how to give a flexible response under pressure.

  • For Employees (For Senior Managers we recommend a group/1-1 Mindful Leadership training)
  • 5 modules of 3 hours taken in sequence over the course of 3-6 months (+ individual intake)
  • In-company
  • 6-10 participants
  • Eur: 6000,-

“In 8 weeks, I learned how Mind training improves my work. The awareness exercised led me to see what conditioning kicks in under pressure and how to break unhelpful patterns. In difficult interactions I learned how to separate fact from interpretation and acces my real feelings/needs to communicate more effectively.
This inspires my work at Workplace Strategies: we help clients define their workplace experience vision and translate it to tangible solutions using health & wellbeing concepts such as nutrition, hydration, light, air, comfort & mental wellness.”
