Our 1-1 purpose led present leadership training + 4 supportive corporate group programs help you and your business build muscle to stay present and lead from purpose: even amidst great turbulence.

We use attention training as a key enabler to achieve this. (See our Whitepaper for scientific evidence) in 4 levels of learning:

  1. Learn to manage your own vitality & balance
  2. Learn to act from presence & purpose
  3. Master the team art of connective communication
  4. Facilitate collective change, involving stakeholders

The 1-1 program (grey arrow in diagram, see home page) trains 1 leader across all 4 levels. The other 4 programs trains larger groups of people per level. Start with what your organization needs most: see our 4 proposition descriptions below.

Corporate Mindfulness Program

 

Overview

Lay the foundation for change: corporate mindfulness program

Corporate Mindfulness Program - Employees (5 x 3 hours)

Goal of this training: Self-management of own vitality,  resilience, 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.

Practicalities:

  • For Employees
  • (For Senior Managers we recommend a separate group training or a 1-1 Purpose Led Present Leadership training)
  • 5 modules of 3 hours taken in sequence over the course of 3-6 months (+ individual intake)
