Successful leadership relies on collaboration, creativity, cognitive flexibility and effective decision-making – the very things that unhappiness, stress and distraction are known to erode, and that mindfulness is known to enhance.
Mindfulness initiatives have been proven to help leaders become more cognitively resilient, emotionally regulated and able to respond skilfully to stress and challenges.
Plus, research also suggests that employees of leaders who practise mindfulness have less emotional exhaustion, better work-life balance and better job performance ratings.

How we operate under different Covid Alert Levels
We are able to operate in-person at all levels of the traffic light system. However, in this ever changing world if circumstances change and for some reason we are no longer able to hold the sessions in person, we will move online and deliver the sessions via zoom.
Ready to join in?
We ask that participants make a commitment to daily practice of 20-40mins during the course. We appreciate that it’s often difficult to carve out extra time for something new in lives that are already very busy and crowded. However, the commitment to spend time in between the sessions will mean that you will gain the maximum benefit from the course.

Proven Track Record
The evaluations and individual feedback we have received from staff supporting the impact and effect it had on their self-care and resilience, with the tangible lasting benefits they felt from utilising simple techniques, were testament to its value.
I have found the team to hold the highest professional standards of practice and experience in their work. I have been impressed by how they have demonstrated a genuine understanding of the pressures and challenges that healthcare staff experience in their day to day work and been flexible in adjusting programmes to meet that need.
We were shortlisted as a finalist for Award for Health, Safety and Wellbeing at the HRINZ Awards in 2016 as a result of our mindfulness based resilience programmes.”
