Mindful Harlem ~ Mindful Leaders

We will be announcing new dates for Mindful Leaders soon.

Entrepreneurs are in a class of their own. They have grit and moxy and a determination to succeed. They work long hours and hold fast to their dream of success no matter what it takes and it takes a lot. Starting up a new company is one of the most important building blocks of our economy and our culture. It is not an accident that 500 Fortune companies such as Google, G.E., American Express, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, E Bay, Intel, Nike, LinkedIn, General mills, Aetna, Etsy and many more smaller companies implemented mindfulness programs for their leaders and employees.

The research is indisputable:

Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders that join business development groups that include mindfulness practices improve their business, make better decisions and impact their bottom line."Mindfulness enables leaders to be fully present, aware of themselves and their impact on other people, and sensitive to their actions to stressful situations"
