We like to close each day’s training with mindfulness. At first it’s a strange experience for our participants. They might find themselves bursting into nervous giggles. Or snoring, after a particularly challenging day of soft skills development. We encourage them to stick with it. There’s a good reason why. It’s the same reason Google, General Mills and Intel are encouraging their employees to stick with it, too.
Meditation is a key part of the soft skills toolbox. Practiced regularly, it helps us be more self-aware, and have more self-control. Both key emotional intelligence (EQ) skills. It improves our ability to focus on one thing at a time – important for creativity and innovation – and for deep work. It is re-energizing, decreasing our chance of burnout and increasing our productivity.

We believe that organizations can build their future now by focusing on customer experience, harnessing relationships at all levels, and creating cultures of innovation. Around these three pillars, we work with organizations and teams to help them align their strategy, leadership model and communication style.
We design tailor-made consulting and training programs to help create congruent cultures and high-impact teams, demonstrating ROI in productivity, image and effectiveness.
