Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence are popular topics in the media and elsewhere. It is likely you've heard about them and may have studied or got involved in related initiatives. For most business professionals, the challenge of how to incorporate these in daily work and reap the promised benefits remains enormous. This experiential workshop is intended to accomplish exactly this. It demystifies these concepts and provides practical frameworks to bring mindfulness and emotional intelligence to your everyday work life, creating immediate tangible benefits and cumulative breakthrough outcomes.
In this highly experiential workshop, you engage in a variety of exercises that bring each point home. Individual and group exercises are carefully designed to build increased awareness of the world inside and outside. Tools and techniques are introduced to guide you through establishing new mindsets and behaviors, and forming new habits. You will also leave the workshop with a booklet and an eCourse to support you and help you continue the learning and instill the new behaviors well beyond the workshop.
