The Mindfulness at Work Leadership Retreat is designed for women leaders that are focused on cultivating mindfulness to enhance their experience at work and in life. This retreat will provide an opportunity to reconnect with our purpose, evaluate our current direction and set new intentions moving forward into 2021.  An individual with this level of clarity and conviction increases their impact and effectiveness as a leader.   The retreat will be grounded in a highly practical and scientifically based approach to understanding mindfulness and the important connection to a thriving life.

Core Learning Areas

What is Mindfulness? We will examine the many facets of mindfulness, the role mindfulness plays in a thriving workplace, and how mindfulness changes the brain. 

Connecting to Purpose: 
We will explore questions such as "What are my strengths?  What work am I most proud of from 2020?  What is my vision for 2021?"   We will engage the inner voice through mindfulness and set intentions with renewed clarity, conviction and purpose. 

Making it Last:
We will explore the setting of intentions for lasting change. The brain science and other important research will be examined, along with the application to work and life.

Desired Outcomes
Participants will leave with a clear set of intentions for 2021 through the cultivation of mindfulness and connection to self. The focus is to increase overall wellbeing as a leader with improved clarity, conviction, engagement, productivity, self-care and overall performance in the workplace and in life

Who Should Attend?
Any woman with an interest in mindfulness and self-discovery.  You don’t have to be in a leadership role at a workplace.  We believe that every woman has the capacity to be a leader in any environment whether at work, at home or in the community.
