The Mindful Leader Course

Decrease stress and anxiety, better regulate emotions and access inner calm amidst the day-to-day pressures, deadlines, targets, and busyness we all face.

This is an 8-week course in mindfulness for those companies looking to strengthen their employees’ mental health, provide stress management training at work and also build team cohesiveness. It is designed for a small team or department (max 10 employees) as it is very interactive.

Each week, our Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist hosts a live class that introduces a new pillar of mindfulness. Each class builds upon the one before, with the intention to strengthen employees’ mindfulness muscle and confidence, while also reducing employee burnout.

Through daily mindfulness activities, participants will develop techniques and skills to be resilient in their day-to-day. We know your employees are busy and short on time so we’ve ensured the daily activities are manageable while also being effective.

A Course for Stress Management at Work

In this program, participants can expect to:

  • Feel confident in managing stress and anxiety; easily access their inner resources.
  • Be self-reliant through accessing a new “toolbox” of techniques in relaxation, stress reduction, self- regulation, and energy management.
  • Learn to show up in all the facets of life with integrity built on self-awareness and control.
  • Know oneself in a profound way that positively changes relationships, in a work environment and home life.
