For many people, the bulk of waking hours is spent in the office, making work an undeniably large percentage of daily life. Life and relationships outside of work are, not surprisingly, impacted by this one all-consuming component. Thus, it would be worthwhile to pay attention to and improve the quality of time at work, so that the benefits impact all aspects of life outside the workspace.
With this in mind, we have created a Menu of Offerings for you to consider. Below is a list of topics that are moments and situations when people generally suffer under stress. The poet Leonard Cohen famously said, “Pay attention to the cracks. That’s where the light gets in.” The impulse is generally to put on “armors” to protect or avoid conflict.
Our Take Your Armors Off Seminars will pay attention to the “cracks” and bring light into those areas. Our presentations include wisdom, practical tools and suggestions, and scientific data, when available, to support the material shared. Our aim is to help employees bring peace and joy, not stress, back to their homes and families.
MEDITATION AND BREATH 101
Many myths have complicated the universal practice of meditation into a mysterious technique requiring discipline and self-denial. Our beginner’s seminar will demystify and introduce the participant to the simple yet magical possibilities that open up by combining the mind and the breath. We will share tips and tools to carry in one’s pocket as moment-to-moment stress relievers.
SELF AWARENESS FOR
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE & VULNERABILITY
It is said that Knowledge is Power. The knowledge of emotions and how to work with them is called Emotional Intelligence. This is the secret ingredient in the recipe for success. Conscious Connection makes a big difference to how we interact with the world and are perceived by it. Through practices and exercises that open the mind and unlock the heart, we will teach you how to establish true connection and claim authentic power.
TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES TO SUPPORT SUCCESS
It is said that success is not only determined by how much you work for it but also by how much you can dream it. This seminar will highlight the role of imagination and visualization in creating a successful future. These exercises will go a long way in all work scenarios, and open pathways to out-of-the-box solutions for work and/or home-life issues.
Monday mornings can be times of great stress. Statistically it has been established that most working people who suffer from heart attacks, experience them on a Monday morning. Transitioning from the weekend to a dreaded work week often proves to be too much when you transition in a mindless way. Our interactive seminar will teach ways of making this shift with courage and compassion so that we ease into the work week seamlessly.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND MINDFULNESS
Conflicts are a natural part of any organization. Avoiding conflicts or feeding them mindlessly are counterproductive. Understanding the emotions and the issues involved in a conflict enables creative conflict resolution that can help a business to grow even stronger in the long run. Our conflict resolution tools and techniques will help your organization to counter the fear of conflict and face the situation mindfully with equanimity and fairness.
HOW TO CALM PERFORMANCE ANXIETY
Presentations and sales pitches are crucial to the success of both an individual and an organization. Thus, when the stakes are high, there is a tremendous fear of failure and a high risk of exposing imperfections in the person or the corporation.
Modern day work life includes several hours in midair. For many busy people the airplane becomes an extension of their workplace and they carry that stress on to their destinations. Let us bring a new Airplane Awareness so that you can use this time to relax and reflect. We will introduce airplane travelers to meditations and mind exercises so that you take advantage of this time to retreat restfully into your inner world and land safely ready for successful possibilities.
HEALTHY HABITS FOR MIND AND BODY
The body and the mind are closely interconnected. Feeding the body in an unhealthy way, yet expecting the mind to operate in a healthy fashion is unrealistic. Our experts will talk about food habits and regimens that support a healthy state of mind and create efficiency and success at the work place and outside. Together we will shine the light on one’s blind spots in eating and help participants to take responsibility for them with compassion.
TEAM SPIRIT FOR TRUE SUCCESS
A team that is cohesive and connected provides a firm foundation for success. This seminar will bring mindfulness into group interactions. We will use the Myers-Briggs Personality Tests to understand differences and appreciate the unique strengths within the team that combine to complement each other. Understanding helps build communication styles that enhance connection and co-operation.
