Mindfulness in the Workplace

What does neuroscience have to do with leadership? Understanding the brain is creating significant breakthroughs in how we communicate and collaborate with others. Find out how you can create conditions where people can thrive.

The rapid pace of change, increasing demands and the ever evolving digital world are creating extraordinary demands on employees. In the workplace, this drain on our emotional and mental well-being can lead to decreased effectiveness, reduced productivity, less creativity and lower engagement.

Mindfulness in the Workplace is emerging as a key focus area to help individuals and organizations promote greater self-care, stress management, clearer communication and enhanced work relationships.

When we’re stretched too thin, our ability to listen and focus is severely compromised. Hear more from best-selling author Dr. Mark Goulston about how you can get your own emotions under control and leverage the power of listening to breakthrough to people and get better results.



  • "  Amazing instructor -- knowledgeable, capture attention, able to gently push people in right direction. I very much enjoyed Janelle's sense of humour.  "

  • "  The course gave me a good general understanding of financial reports and annual reporting.  "

  • "  Janelle was an excellent instructor and kept the class motivated which was wonderful - keeps you interested in the course and the time flew by! The course gave wonderful insight into why and how you can have a better working relationship with your boss.  "

  • "  Overall, an excellent seminar. I have recommended it to other dept coworkers already.  "

  • "  What I liked most about this course was the instructor because she made what can potentially be perceived as "fluffy" material very interesting by way of how she delivered the material. She used good examples and due to her vast experience in the field (and in delivering such courses, I'm sure) she was able to spontaneously come up with good suggestions as to how to handle specific situations the class questioned her on.  "

  • "  I enjoyed the interaction between participants and the willingness of Jim to discuss items until we were all in the loop.  "

  • "  Instructor was very knowledgeable and questions were answered without hesitation.  "

  • "  I thought that we had a perfect size for a course such as this. There were twelve in attendance, and it made for a very good rapport with one another.  "

  • "  My organization is only now starting to use strategic planning; this course provided me with the information I need to help my departments and my division to move ahead.  "
