What clients have said

Patrick has a very calm and patient demeanour. I would categorise myself in the “tough-to-coach” category as I am impatient and at times resistant to change. I found Patrick’s ability to listen, challenge, and mostly to stay engaged in the process to be impressive. I found his questioning to be pertinent and his willingness to be authentic to be very refreshing.

Patrick, I appreciate your time and effort that you put into coaching me, and more especially your willingness to be patient and flexible in your work.

Corporate-Based Mindfulness Training

Corporate-Based Mindfulness Training (CBMT) is tailored to meet the specific challenges of working life: heavy workloads, tight deadlines, ongoing change and high demands on energy and flexibility.

Without tools to handle these challenges, we get stressed and burned-out. Mindfulness is a tool to handle them with clarity, effectiveness and calm.

Key Attributes of CBMT

  • CBMT is embedded in the activities of everyday work-life, not an extra add-on that takes lots of time
  • CBMT is a vast but simple method, presented in a clear, step-by-step approach that can be applied on the spot
  • CBMT is presented within a rigorous, accessible framework of neuroscience and psychology

How Does CBMT Help?

In a knowledge economy, our capacity to pay attention is the fundamental source of productive power. Mindfulness training improves that power-source. With a simple shift in our minds we can stop losing productivity to distraction, instead using our attention skills as a competitive advantage.

Stress and burnout are more than just feelings: they affect our health and our productivity. And our workloads aren’t going to go away. Mindfulness is proven to increase focus, significantly reduce stress and increase overall wellbeing. That means fewer days lost to sick leave, and a healthier, happier, more productive workforce.

Self-awareness and empathy are crucial skills for effective leaders. Mindfulness improves both of them. With more data to work with and a better understanding of our co-workers, teams operate more smoothly, with less productivity lost to conflict.

Leading Companies Use Mindfulness Training

Google, Apple, Intel, General Electric, Sony, and Carlsberg – to name a few – all run mindfulness training programs to increase their productivity, stress-resilience, interpersonal communication, leadership skills and creativity.
