What you learn:
* Dealing with Change Toolkit *
This online companion helps you mindfully through difficult change - whether your changes are due to COVID or something else, your choice or not.
Based on the outstanding results from our research study, this toolkit was created! Company pilots have completed, showing similar or better results than the research study. Individuals are reporting it helps through difficult times.
You are guided through creating a better experience of your difficult changes, based on integrating industry standard change management techniques, using mindfulness and meditation.
In 2010, my life was a messy blur when I was diagnosed with cancer.
Mindfulness and meditation became a solid foundation for dealing with... well, everything in my life. The ups, downs and sideways.
In 2023, I celebrate 12 years leading workplace mindfulness and 9 years training and being in community with compassionate facilitators to bring mindfulness to others.
With deep gratitude, I am here to serve.
