INTRO TO MINDFULNESS
Modern science has shown that the brain is malleable. What we think, do, and pay attention to changes the structure and function of our brains. Mindfulness is a way to change the wiring of our brains for the better. With training, you can improve focus and productivity, strengthen communication and relationships, better manage difficult experiences, and increase resilience. Come learn what mindfulness is and how it can help you do just that!
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
What mindfulness is and the latest neuroscience supporting it How your brain typically performs at work, and whether or not that is effective Quick, simple exercises to start incorporating mindfulness into your routines
Andrew founded the Dynamic Leadership Center to help his generation be more productive at work. He believes that small tweaks in how we use our brain can fundamentally change our work performance, effectiveness of relationships, and overall fulfilment. (Oh, and make companies more profitable too).
Andrew’s background makes him uniquely suited to have an impact. He …
* is a millennial — he grew up during 9/11, does not carry cash, and is dependent on a charged cell phone
* has a depth of business experience — he excelled at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), where he saw a stark contrast between how BCG and their clients motivated and engaged their workforce
* is active in shaping the mindfulness community — he collaborates with leading experts to create content, facilitates sessions in companies and his community, and has a dedicated practice of his own.
In his free time, Andrew seeks out endurance/adrenaline sports (i.e. setting hard goals for no apparent reason) and meditation (i.e. sitting in excruciatingly uncomfortable positions for mind numbing lengths of time).
“It so easy to lose perspective in the workplace, like these deadlines or emails…. And it was a good way to regain perspective.”
“It helps you make better decisions, and those decisions led to better outcomes.”
“It has made me more patient, more empathetic, more able to see things through other’s eyes.”
