What if work was less effort and daily challenges felt lighter and more manageable?

In today’s turbulent work environment, we are asked to hold the “big picture” while simultaneously juggling immediate priorities and work relationships. But fleeting thoughts and emotions can distract us at crucial moments.

What if we could increase our capacity for focus, innovation, and collaboration?

Mindfulness — an inherent human ability — is strengthened through awareness and practice. With simple tools and basic skills that expand mental and emotional capacity, we can respond skillfully to difficult situations with confidence as we make decisions and negotiate respectfully with coworkers.

Mary McHenry
Course Facilitator

The blended-learning virtual classroom presents multiple options to experience both pre-recorded and live lectures, engage directly with faculty, share ideas with classmates, practice meditation, and apply leadership skills.
