MINDFULNESS AND EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE FOR LEADERS AND TEAMS 

In these turbulent times, people are reporting higher levels of anxiety, stress and burnout. Navigating today's VUCA-world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) requires that leaders and organizations develop new skills to manage stress, enhance emotional wellbeing and cultivate a sense of purpose to engage the workforce. Some of the latest neuroscience and behavioral research suggest that we can systematically train the brain to enhance mental clarity, boost resilience, strengthen effective collaboration and increase individual fulfillment at work and in life. IdeaLift provides transformational mindfulness and emotional intelligence-based programs grounded in neuroscience and evidence-based practices that lead to sustained peak performance, resilience, creativity and effective leadership.

Decades worth of research shows a relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and many of the most critical aspects of organizational performance, leader success, and employee engagement.  The World Economic Forum named Emotional Intelligence as a core work-related skill, and predicts it to be “in higher demand across industries than narrow technical skills. Emotional Intelligence differentiates top performers beyond IQ and technical abilities and enables us to understand and navigate our own emotions as well as our relationships. Using mindfulness practices, EI is highly trainable skills and has been found to reduce turnover, absenteeism, and increase employee engagement, performance and productivity organizational return on investment

EXPERT QUOTES AND CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Åsa is a very experienced mediation instructor.  She was light with her instruction, but direct.  She really wants to GIVE each and every person in the room what she has to share.

I could not believe how smoothly the session went – in that she had time constraints, and we are in an office versus a yoga studio, and she just worked with it TOTALLY. 

 

You can feel the positive energy from her, as soon as she steps up to greet you. I have been exposed to meditation before, but this class was the best!”

“By teaching people to tune in to their emotions with intelligence and to expand their circles of caring, we can transform organizations from the inside out and make a positive difference in our world” 

 

Daniel Goleman, Author and
Science Journalist

“Gallup research in 2019 revealed that when workers perceived their company to have the mindset and the tools and processes of an agile culture, they're more likely to believe that their organization is perfect for customers, that their company is ahead of the competition, that the company's financial future is secure, and that their employer is successful and growing.”

A company is only as resilient as its people. If employees are anxious, reactive and burned out, every business metric — from productivity to attrition to customer success — will be affected. That’s why the human layer needs to be central to whatever re-entry plans or digital transformation strategies companies are formulating right now. And for all businesses, small and large, focusing on the upskilling and reskilling of their employees, it is more important than ever to include the human skills of resilience and stress management in the upskilling.”

"Mindfulness allows you to develop a broad set of cognitive and executive functions, raises self-awareness levels and facilitates emotional regulation, empowering individuals to substitute knee-jerk reactions with more conscious and ultimately more efficient behavior”
