“Provided a fantastic platform on which to build much deeper and authentic connections with my colleagues and learn a lot more about myself. I really enjoyed your presentation style. The guidebook with its array of tools is a valuable resource to cope with emotional hijacks and concentrate  on the underpinning feelings that drive behaviour. “ Maurice Ware – Queensland Studies Authority


Managing mindfully. Across the globe, a new generation of leaders are seeking to integrate personal mastery, mindfulness and emotional intelligence into their leadership lives and practice, not just to improve their personal productivity and performance, but to learn how to be more present, self-aware, focused, connected, less stress-prone and more emotionally balanced.

Mindful leadership starts with Emotional Intelligence. Personal Mastery, Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness are all essential for good leadership and all intimately inter-connected. Mindfulness is how we put emotional competencies like self-awareness and self-management into action. To put it simply, mindful leadership starts with emotional intelligence – It’s key to being more fully in control of our feelings, thoughts and actions and waking up to what’s happening in and around us.

“An insightful workshop that encouraged self-reflection and helped me gain a better insight into the strategies I employ to self-manage. It was more than a chalk and talk. Bill has an easy, calm approach that creates a safe environment to participate and get the most out of sessions. Pace and content was well considered and the group dynamics and enthusiasm were a highlight for me, as well as Bill’s experience, knowledge and presentation skills.” Jay Hendricks – Queensland Health
