The training is based on the latest research which has shown that mindfulness develops emotional intelligence; the skills that predict employee performance, leadership effectiveness and organisational wellbeing.

The result is more:

  • Self Mastery    –   Focus, clarity, emotional regulation, resilience, tools to recharge
  • Social Mastery   –   Able to foster connection, communication, relationship and trust
  • Mastery of Possibility   –     Expanded capacity, open to innovation, inspired teams.
