Transforming lives. Empowering leaders.
The complexity and frantic pace of modern business challenge even the most seasoned leaders. Add to that the pressure to perform at higher and higher levels, uber-connectivity, stimulus overload, and a myriad of other professional and personal imperatives. The resulting stress can seriously impair leadership effectiveness and personal well-being.
The realities of 21st century business take their toll not only on leaders, but also on the organizations and teams they lead—elevated stress, impaired decision making, lower productivity and efficiency, costly turnover, and compromised wellness.
Inseus has a proven approach to mitigating those negative impacts and unlocking in executives and leaders the kind of insights, strategic thinking, creativity, and compassion that result in better decision making and more effective management practice.
We deliver all that through an array of highly-tailored experiences at all levels of leadership in small group settings, workshops and seminars, individual coaching, and focused retreats—all grounded in our three-pronged methodology.
Mindfulness + Emotional Intelligence + Neuroscience = Mindful Leadership
Those three core elements, when integrated into regular practice, can transform and empower leaders in remarkable ways professionally and personally. Here’s a brief explanation of how it works
Mindfulness, a heightened form of attentiveness, enables leaders to become more empathetic, insightful, and effective. Those who practice mindfulness think more strategically, make better decisions, and create more productive, collaborative, and healthy working environments. Mindfulness is the foundation of emotional intelligence.
Emotional intelligence enables leaders in profound ways to create the space for making wise, conscious, compassionate choices in the face of chaos, distraction, and pain. There’s a direct correlation between high levels of emotional intelligence and professional success—90 percent of top performers have high levels of emotional intelligence. The good news: emotional intelligence can be cultivated.
Neuroscience comes into play because we now know that the human brain is malleable. We have a life-long capacity—scientists call it neuroplasticity—to change our brain’s structure and function as a result of where we turn our attention. Mindfulness practice strengthens the capacity of the human brain to increase attentional control, regulate emotion and reactivity, and increase awareness, which allows leaders to respond boldly and wisely with compassion and insight.
