Mindfulness-Based Stress Workshops for Leaders

Today, executives are expected to perform fast and effectively in a global envorinment that moves and changes at lightning speed. In order to adapt and be flexible in this framework, one must be constantly “moving” and thinking innovatively. These skills can be trained through a Mindfulness Stress course to achieve a greater sense of excellence, openness and balance. Mindfulness can help leaders to communicate more clearly, improve their decision making and enchance creativity.

All executives undertake a lot of responsibility at work, and at times, this might be experienced as heavy pressure. When such concerns build up, it becomes more difficult to stop the stressful thoughts and inner conversation, which finally bring the body into a state of constant alert. When a person is exposed to this state of stress for a long period of time, the consequences may include cardiovascular disease, anxiety and depression. All the unwanted effects of stress can be managed and prevented through Mindfulness-Based Stress Workshops.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Workshops for Leaders can be designed for groups or on one-on-one basis upon request.
