Standing out from the Crowd as a Manager – With Mindfulness

"Mindfulness is a state of being fully present, aware of oneself and other people, and sensitive to one's reactions to stressful situations. Leaders who are mindful tend to be more effective in understanding and relating to others, and motivating them toward shared goals. Hence, they become more effective in leadership roles." - William W. George


Mindfulness in Management is critical for leaders!

Many managers focus on exceling in their domain knowledge as a means to stand out in a crowded and competitive field. However, in today’s dynamic and highly connected world, the ability to quickly discern changes, communicate and influence others to work towards a common goal is one of the key determinant of superior results. Managing complex people relationship is another. A manager who has superior clarity and focus of mind holds the edge.

Mindfulness is a state of mind that focus on the present moment. A mindful manager see things with clarity and conceptualize with agility. He develops strong people relationship, and his confidence and composure inspires the people around him. A true differentiating skill must come from within. Mindfulness provides a manager with the critical edge to be successful, and a strong foundation to build deep domain knowledge.

A world leading technology company has adopted Mindfulness as a competitive differentiator. Discover and master it!

  1. Describe how the Mind works, and its impact on behaviour and actions.

“I find that this course has used a different approach to guide us for an effective communication by knowing ourselves first via the self-reflection approach, before we think and speak (speak to be understood).In addition, Chong Yuen, our trainer, has made the course interesting and very interactive as we were asked to share our past experiences in terms of the challenges we faced.I have recommended this course to my fellow colleagues & friends for their consideration”

– Manager, Republic Polytechnic

After reading about the much hypedup topic on “mindfulness”, I have attended this workshop. This course has provided me with an enriching & insightful understanding of the whole new meaning of it.
Chong Yuen has structured the course with a comfortable flow, infusing subtle but interesting practical exercise such as role plays, for us learners to experience the sensory aspect of it. Chong Yuen is able to leverage the learners’ wealth of experiences & relating mindfulness events in our daily lives, creating a very meaningful learning journey for me.
