In our response lies our growth and our freedom. -Viktor Frankl
Back by popular demand! This workshop is for those interested in learning how to best utilize your wellresourced
self in situations which call for your leadership, and how to be more effective at work and home.
This engaging and insightful session will focus on the combination of two skills: emotional intelligence and
mindfulness. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is having the awareness of, and the ability to, choose how to respond
to different and sometimes challenging contexts. No matter if a person has positional leadership or is in a place
to influence others, understanding EQ will increase your effectiveness.
Mindfulness is the practice of presence. It is a cultivation of your awareness to bring attention and intention to
both the inside and the outside of you. As a leader, mindfulness helps you cultivate the presence you want in
given situations and allows you to have choice in your actions and reactions.
- Understand the neuroscience of emotions and learn strategies to access the response you choose
- Understand the leading models of Emotional Intelligence and practical application of them
- Participate in mini-mindfulness sessions and experiment with several mindfulness apps
- Understanding your personal strengths and areas to develop, and an action plan for immediate next
- Receive a 30% discount on either a yoga therapy session or a leadership coaching session!
