Mindfulness and Resilience: Tools to Thrive During Stressful Times

During our current time of change and uncertainty, our stress and anxiety levels can go through the roof. Navigating a hybrid work environment can create greater challenges to our work-life balance. It is absolutely crucial for us to be able to maintain our mental, physical, and emotional health so we can take care of ourselves, our family and remain productive in our professional life. This talk will address the following items:

  • Importance of Positive Relationships
  • Healthy Eating
  • Unplugged Sleep

  • Breathing - for stress reduction
  • Focusing - for improving one's ability to concentrate and focus
  • Gratitude - to shift to a more positive mindset
  • Appreciation - develop appreciation for the contributions of our colleagues

Creating a Positive and Mindful Workplace Culture

The growth and overall success of an organization is defined by its culture and leadership. A positive workplace culture builds trust, creates stronger teams, enhances collaboration, and morale. As a result, it boosts employee engagement, creates greater rapport with clients, and can lead to increased sales.

It is absolutely crucial for leaders to lead by example and create a workplace environment that not only encourages, but also supports our mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing so we can perform at a high level while taking care of ourselves, family, and professional responsibilities.

This workshop will address the importance of creating an environment where ego battles aren’t driving the company down and where individuals are willing to put aside their own self-interest for the sake of the greater good. The workshop will inspire individuals to appreciate contributions of their co-workers instead of feeling threatened by them. Ultimately, these changes will enable organizations to recruit and retain top talent.

Mindful Leadership: Walking the Talk and Developing Self-Awareness

Leaders set the tone and mood for the rest of the organization. To fully inspire and bring out the best from the workforce, leadership has to lead by example and “walk the talk.” They can’t say one thing and do another. To attract, engage and retain top talent, leaders need to create more human and employee-centered workplace environments.

This talk will address the importance for leadership of all levels to not only set the right example, but also, on a regular basis, appreciate the contributions of their workforce, communicate mindfully to encourage and inspire, lead with humility and without ego and manage their emotions. The research on mindfulness and its application for the workplace will also be presented.

After this keynote, participants will be able to:

  • Improve their level of self-awareness
  • Communicate mindfully and with compassion
  • Lead with confidence combined with humility
  • Better manage their emotions to remain calm during challenging situations
  • Implement mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and improve focus and productivity
