Why Mindful Wellbeing?

Science-based mindfulness is a process of neural training that produces remarkably positive outcomes in wellbeing, cognitive performance, and emotional intelligence. Over the past decade, it’s been incorporated into the daily training regimen of the world’s most elite organizations, including the U.S. Olympics Team, the U.S. Navy Seal Teams and Special Forces, Formula One Racing, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, and dozens of professional sports teams.

Personal performance starts with our mental strength and physical wellbeing. The world’s most accomplished athletes, entrepreneurs and business leaders - including the CEOs at 7 of the 10 most valuable companies in the world - now practice mindfulness meditation. Why? Because it is powerful force-multiplier for personal health, happiness, performance and productivity.

Course Overview:

The Mindful Wellbeing and Performance Certification (IOM-MWP) helps individuals and teams navigate the new normal of volatile change, complexity and uncertainty. It is a comprehensive introduction to the nature, science and essential mindfulness practices that relieve chronic stress and anxiety - reduce the impact of information overload, digital distraction, unconscious bias, conflict, exhaustion and burnout - and give us the mental space and emotional strength to thrive.

Mindfulness strengthens our awareness, attention control and emotional regulation. Using these faculties, thousands of studies in neuroscience, biology and psychology have confirmed that mindfulness practice produces remarkably positive outcomes in health and wellbeing, cognitive performance and emotional intelligence.

Mindfulness training is an important self-development program for high-performing individuals - and a win-win investment for organizations. It is a path to greater joy, happiness, personal motivation, engagement, performance and productivity.

Course Outline

Week 1: Introduction to Mindfulness

Three decades of research have confirmed that the mind can physically change the brain and body - and mindfulness proves it. This class provides an overview of the nature, science, hands-on practice, and application of modern mindfulness.

You will learn: 

  • The psychology and neuroscience of mindfulness

  • How mindfulness strengthens our brains and bodies

  • The foundational formal and informal mindfulness practices

Week 2 - Reducing Chronic Stress and Anxiety

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have named chronic stress the most dangerous global epidemic of the new century, and confirm that the workplace is far and away the primary source. This class is an exploration of strategies and practices that relieve workplace pressures, stress-related burnout, and chronic illness.

You will learn: 

  • The evolutionary wiring and triggers that creates negativity, chronic stress and mental exhaustion

  • How mindfulness is applied to reframe worry, rumination, self-critical and depressive thinking

  • Mindfulness practices that reduce chronic stress, and increases mental and emotional resilience

Week 3 - Reducing Distraction and Attention Deficit

Information overload, workplace distraction and the addictive properties of our digital communications and social media are steadily eroding our attention spans and capabilities to do deep work. This class explores practices that physically strengthen brain networks associated with focus, concentration and attention control.

You will learn: 

  • The sources and science of information overload, digital distraction and workplace ADD

  • How to apply mindfulness to suppress distraction, and increase attention control

  • Mindfulness practices that strengthen our abilities to direct and sustain concentration

Week 4 - Adapting to Change and Uncertainty

Our brains are wired to fear change and loathe uncertainty - yet we live in a world and workplace that is undergoing volatile and rapid disruption. How can we overcome our evolutionary resistance, and develop the mental skills to welcome and embrace change? This class explores mindfulness as a positive catalyst for change management.

You will learn:

  • How change and uncertainty triggers fear that hijacks our emotional state

  • How mindfulness helps us consciously navigate from the known to an uncertain future state

  • Mindfulness practices that develop the mental skill to embrace change

Week 5 - A Positive and Growth Mindset

Motivation, engagement and performance all flow from a positive, "growth" mindset. But our brain needs help in recognizing and overcoming its evolved circuits of pain, fear and worry. This class explores mindfulness practices that interrupt our negative bias and reactivity - and strengthen circuits for positivity, expanded learning, and growth.

You will learn:

  • How our brains get started and stuck in a cycle of negativity

  • How mindfulness is applied to reframe mindsets and change behaviors

  • Mindfulness practices to reconcile, change course and move forward

Week 6 - Developing Social and Emotional Intelligence

Science has proven that self-awareness, empathy, compassion and social grace aren't immutable traits, they are trainable skills that can be intentionally developed through neural exercise. This class examines the visceral power of social and emotional intelligence, and how to strengthen these foundational inter-personal capabilities.

You will learn:

  • The framework and competencies that comprise social and emotional intelligence

  • How to use mindfulness to strengthen self-and-social-awareness, empathy and communication

  • Mindfulness practices for care, kindness and compassionate behaviors

Week 7 - Communication and Collaboration Skills

Mindfulness enables us to listen deeply and consciously - to pay close attention to aural tone, non-verbal cues and body language - to connect with our intuition - and to create rapport. This class introduces strategies and practices for strengthening awareness, attention control, and effective interpersonal communication skills.

You will learn:

  • How to connect closely and cooperatively with others

  • How to conduct an articulate and productive dialogue

  • Mindfulness practices that increase intuition, attunement and rapport

Week 8 - Mental Strength, Grit and Resilience

Our volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world can be frustrating, discouraging and exhausting. But mindfulness dampens the negativity that saps our energy, reduces our stress, anxiety and worry - and gives us the mental strength to cope with difficult situations, and bounce back from adversity. This class explores practices that build our emotional stability and resilience

You will learn:

  • The principles of elite performance 

  • How mindfulness connects us to the state of flow

  • Mindfulness practices for mental toughness, grit and resilience
