On Demand Webinar Duration 60 Minutes

  Enroll in Course

Speaker :Dr. Laura McGuire is a nationally-recognized trainer, subject matter expert, and inclusion consultant.

Overview

You don’t have to have peace in your life or a calm mind in order to use the tool that is mindfulness. Mindful-ness is about increasing awareness to manage reactions, emotions, and perceptions. In the work environment this means increasing productivity, avoiding burnout, and retention. Too often we believe the lie that we should first have it all together and then we will be more rational and centered when in the reverse is true. In this webinar we will explore why that is true, how to increase your mindfulness inside and outside of work each day, and how to make a mindful approach second nature now.

Why Should You Attend

If you have ever seen someone talk about mindfulness or meditation and been curious about how it could help in your daily life this webinar is for you. Mindfulness is so much more than being calm it is about being aware of what is going on and how you are reacting to situations. At work there are often so many factors that we can-not control and this can leave us feeling overwhelmed and disengaged. In this webinar we will present the tools you need to get started with a mindfulness practice for you and your team and the benefits there in.
