Do you want to Increase your performance? We offer ways for you to:
    • Understand and manage stress better

Stress is a normal response to abnormal situations. When there are more variables than we can “control”, our system prepares for a stress response: (fight, flight or freeze). And often our rational, logical capabilities are diminished when we prepare for the uncertain. We become narrowly focused and not open to often wiser solutions. However, we can train the mind to respond differently….

    • Build resilience and capacity

We can create ways to prepare, be aware and repair our minds and bodies to operate better in continuously stressful environments. We all know the importance of sleep, diet and exercise, but our minds host most of the stress. And yes, we can also pre-pare and re-pair the impact of today’s complex environments on our minds.

    • Lead in and embrace complexity….

We are in complexity when there are more variables than we have control over. We cannot “solve” or “fix” complexity. However, we can change our relationship with it. One should approach complexity the same way as driving in fog. With curiosity, openness, flexibility and acute awareness of what is happening while it is happening. Running away or fighting is not a wise option.

    • Respond (rather than react) to challenges

Our habitual reptilian brain mode of dealing with stress and complexity is to react. The same way we would react when we think there is danger around the next corner. We fight, flight or freeze. Mindfulness develops an increased ability to first pause and reflect on what the stressor is and then to respond – (with a choice and not a habitual reaction).

Before we explore WHAT MINDFULNESS IS, have a look at the two columns below. Which column does your current state of mind mainly fit into?

Fragile
Confused
Stressed
Imbalanced
Reactionary

Distant
Distracted
Oblivious
Preoccupied
Uncomfortable

Responsive
Open

Mindful

If you regularly fall into the left column, as people often do, then we can help you shift into the right column. The skills we teach can be practiced for life so that the benefits never end.
