Mindfulness for Leaders and High Achievers
Our lives are faster and busier than ever before. Juggling an impossible number of tasks, we often go into a state of mental autopilot, barely aware of what’s happening to us and around us.
More and more people are turning to mindfulness as a way to slow down, get off the autopilot and become fully present to their lives.
Recent studies have shown the seemingly endless ways mindfulness can positively impacts our lives: less worry, better health, improved focus, and more fulfilling relationships, to name a few. Recent breakthroughs in neuroscience have proven that regular mindfulness practice can actually change the brain, making it possible to let go of old negative patterns.
The best news is that anyone can learn and cultivate this critical skill, and even five minutes a day can make a difference. Entrepreneurs, founders and CEOs of successful multi-million businesses have made mindfulness part of their daily lives, a critical ally to fully tap into their creativity, resilience and grit.
“Mindfulness will help you clear away the trivia and needless worries about unimportant things, nurture passion for your work and compassion for others, and develop the ability to empower the people in your organization.” – Bill George, Harvard Professor, Former Chairman and CEO of Medtronic
