Welcome to the PAID environment
The world is changing, and we now live and work in a PAID environment: Pressure, Always on, Information Overload, Distraction (Hougaard, Carter & Coutts, 2016). We have less time to think and more demands on our attention than ever. As a result, we are more reactive and struggle to remain focused, we experience higher stress overall and we lack the effectiveness and sense of fulfillment that comes from being more creative in response to the challenges in our work and lives.
With greater mindfulness, we can develop the self-leadership required to better manage our own thoughts, emotions and behaviors so that we can respond in the ways that truly serve ourselves and others.
Leading Mindfully is a customizable, interactive workshop that explores the impacts of the PAID environment along with the connection between mindfulness and self-leadership, with practical applications in the moment.
The workshop is suitable for anyone who works and lives in the PAID environment and wants to be able to choose how they show up in the moment and become more intentional about the impact of their presence – on themselves, their staff, colleagues and managers.
"We were fortunate enough to have Maggie present her "Leading Mindfully" workshop to a group of Women in Leadership members recently. Over 90% of the audience rated the presentation "Excellent" in terms of topic, structure, engagement, thoughtful questions and activities. Everyone walked away with a couple useful tools to apply in and improve her work and life. Thank you Maggie."
