Why Mindfulness…

Mindfulness provides a simple but powerful route for getting ourselves unstuck, back into touch with our won wisdom and vitality. It is a way to take charge of the direction and quality of our own lives, including our relationships with the family, our relationship to work and to the larger world and planet, and most fundamentally, our relationship with our self as a person.

Mindfulness is this quality of awareness of self that allows the development of all other leadership skills, characteristics, and practices to be fruitful. It creates the basis upon which relationships with others can be built such that connection and communication happens fluidly and with greater ease and authenticity. Wiser Everyday’s programs provide essential understanding along with actionable tools to employ mindfulness in everyday life, regardless of the conditions or challenges that surround the situation. Our mindful leadership programs develop practices around listening, appreciation, direct communication, responsiveness, commitment, and authentic interpersonal relationships.

Emotional Intelligence & Mindfulness Practices

Impactful leaders have a high level of emotional intelligence (EQ). Similar to an intelligence quotient or IQ, measuring your EQ can provide you insights into your emotional abilities. How you perceive, understand and manage yourself and others can help you develop your ability to lead. Workshop sessions developed by Wiser Everyday give attendee’s tools based on self-assessments of their awareness of themselves and others and contemplate this to how they regulate their self and others. These tools provide insights into strengths that can be enhanced and actionable steps to improve emotional capabilities. Wiser Everyday provides a unique blending of emotional intelligence assessments and enhancement techniques with mindfulness practices to provide a solid platform to launch into personal-professional development. Mindfulness is a set of practices that increase awareness and clarity through purposeful pauses. These pauses will transport leaders into a state of presence allowing their work to flow, while productivity and resourcefulness come about naturally. Blending the two allows opportunities to modify emotions with effective, sincere empathy where in challenging situations are managed positively with a focused and calm approach. Together with Wiser Everyday, leadership traits are developed through building strengths and instituting daily practices.
