Take a teambuilding day to practice connective communication and build trust

In most businesses, Command/Control management is the norm. Today’s leaders were often also mentored by Command/Control managers, so it is hard to break that mold.

Even though this leadership style brought good results so far, a shift is urgently needed to successfully meet the challenges ahead: A shift towards Trust, Collaboration and Shared Leadership. Teams can learn to build such trust: a safe space to connect; appreciate each other; experiment; engage everyone and leverage diversity to find the best solutions.

(Leadership) Team building day(s) help set the right intentions. But – back at work – it is easy to revert to habit under pressure. Interactive (Team) Mindfulness and Mindful Leadership training are key to making intentions reality.

Daily practices – on the job – help bring out the best in each other and be fully present to what is needed in each new moment: even under pressure.

Mindful Leadership Individual Retreat (5 days in Spain)

From alienation to reconnection

In this current, fast changing world where insecurity and complexity are continuous drivers, alienation is a risk. Our natural reflex is to grasp for control and analyse. Important question: what responsibility do we have and take ourselves?

The retreat gives you a chance to explore the conscious and unconscious triggers driving your behaviour. It provides you with a chance to experience what choices you have. A shift from alienation to reconnection with yourself and the environment. To be able to act (again) with authenticity, from your purpose. Re-energised.

  • For individuals at a crossroads in their leadership
  • 5 days
  • 6-12 participants, open subscription
  • Amidst nature in Spain
  • Eur 790,- per participant (excluding travel costs)

“Mindfulness develops my consciousness and self-awareness. I register things on many more levels which improves the quality of my decisions. We advise leaders at the top: The best leaders I meet distinguish themselves with a high level of self-awareness. Mindfulbizz used Mindfulness based methods to train our research team, helping them deal with stress; listen to each other; make better decisions and come up with more creative ideas.”
