A 1-day ‘minds-on’ workshop on how attention, focus and presence

can transform you, your brain and your leadership...

Why Mindfulness Matters?

It’s a hugely beneficial practice to help leaders navigate turbulent workplace terrains we all face today - unrelenting busyness, pace and pressure; anxiety, overload, burn-out; a deluge of digital distractions that drain focus and keep us in a state ‘of continuous partial attention’.

Managing Mindfully? The ability to set aside such distractions, focus attention and engage with what’s unfolding in front of you is foundational for self-awareness. A prime task of leaders is helping people focus attention and energy on the right things. To do that, leaders need to push aside distractions and be able to focus themselves first [Read more in our FactFile: Mindful Leadership in Action]

Are you ready to make this your year of living mindfully?

“I’d highly recommend this program to those who want to learn specific strategies to incorporate mindfulness principles into their leadership practices at work, especially colleagues suffering stress and burn-out. Plenty of opportunities for interaction with techniques and practical exercises that helped engagement”

Judith W - Allied Health Director

Mindfulness Minus Meditation... Many automatically link mindfulness with meditation but you don’t have to meditate to be mindful. There are many every-day ways to train your brain to focus attention, downgrade distractions and heighten your presence and clarity. Such deep and abiding mindfulness traits not only enhance the quality of your thinking and actions, they can also lift your leadership capacity, personal productivity and strengthen your sense of emotional balance and well-being.

If you’re looking for ways to put in a peak performance without sacrificing your sanity, humanity and well-being, Mindful Leadership in Action may well provide a useful starter-platform to help you re-think and re-invigorate…

“Excellent - as with all your programs - especially for those in leadership positions, given the stresses of today. The guidebook is outstanding, as always, with excellent tools - such a useful follow-up resource and always supported by a strong research base. A top presentation. It's always a pleasure to attend your programs.” Dr Lyn Bishop - Sheldon College

Mindful Leadership in Action is a 1-day coaching clinic that looks at what it means to lead mindfully. It takes a practical, every-day approach to introducing simple brain-training tools to help you find ways to incorporate the mental disciplines of presence, self-reflection and focused attention into your everyday leading activities, rather than just react on auto-pilot all the time. You’ll learn to...

·       Lift your levels of clarity, focus, purpose, presence and attention

·       Monitor mind-wandering and tune into your mental models

Get off the emotional roller-coaster of reactivity and regain perspective and emotional balance


Retrain your leader-brain. Neuroscience discoveries show even a few minutes of mindfulness exercise a day can change our brain for the better and help leaders tap into their inner-space to find a haven of clarity, calm and focus in a maze of confusion, uncertainty, conflicting priorities and unrelenting stress.

“We all have habitual ways of responding to emotional challenges. Mindfulness training alters these habits by making it more likely that one neuronal pathway rather than another will be used...(it) carves new channels in streambeds of the mind.”

Richard Davidson ‘The Emotional Life of Your Brain’
