In many workplaces, stress and burnout not only result in high turnover, they impair the organization’s ability to serve its customers and fulfill its core mission.

This proprietary program targets supervisors and employees who are on the front lines in stressful job situations. It’s designed to help them better cope with stress and compassion fatigue by building resilience and social and emotional intelligence and competencies through mindfulness awareness practices and essential self-care techniques. You’ll learn to implement these workplace wellness strategies to manage conflict at work, improve conflict resolution skills, or simply make it through a stressful day of meetings.

You will learn how to:

  • Become present now; pay attention in the moment
  • Become aware of stress responses and triggers
  • Cope with difficult emotions
  • Create a practice for self-care and compassion
  • Speak and listen mindfully
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Develop a daily practice that fosters kindness, compassion and more authentic relationships

Some of the organizations we’ve worked with include…






“I believe mindfulness will help me in my personal life. I don’t like to be the one who typically apologizes, but this has changed a lot. I’m more likely to make the first move.”

“Mindfulness will help me be a better manager/leader, husband and father.”

“I really enjoyed the course and especially the half-day seminar. I believe I learned numerous things that can help me in both my personal and professional life.”
