What is SkillfulMeans Leadership Lab?

SkillfulMeans Leadership Lab integrates neuroscience, cardiac footprint and mindfulness to help you reliably develop: real-time self-awareness and self-management, courage, natural leadership confidence, balanced empathy, productive work relations and…. 
a renewed zest for life.


"The SkillfulMeans Leadership Lab totally changed my attitude, helped me get promoted - gave me the tools to bring empathy and innovation into my workplace"  

                              - Daniel Volkovich, Director Product Development, CarQualifier


Based on leading edge

Neuroscience, to give us clues into what really drives our behavior - and what motivates us to change and develop lasting traits and competencies.

Cardiac footprint, a measurable state of physiological balance, where the mind and heart align. Your entire being becomes more regular and stable. You can then perform at a higher level and feel good while doing it!

Mindfulness, the science of being focused and present - a process of regulating attention and sharpening the mind, so that you can bring presence and high-resolution awareness to your daily activities.    


What makes this unique program effective?

Our leading edge method and
 Leadership Intelligence Toolbox (LIT)
Practical, easy to learn and apply. Neuroscience, cardiac footprint and mindfulness based. Data-driven, with measurable impact and sustainable outcomes.

Learn on the job with the support that you need
2-5 day leadership seminars can be inspiring. But what happens when it’s over? Positive change starts with daily practice; when you put your new skills to work. Our program is designed for just that!

Tailored for you, to help you achieve your own personal goals
Everyone has different objectives and learns differently. We customize the program for each individual and include 1:1 coaching for personal support and ongoing development.

Who is it for?

Do you work with others and want to realize your highest potential as a leader and a team member? Do you naturally take on initiative and responsibility regardless of role, function or title? Do you see the value in high performing teams that operate on trust, innovation, and collaboration?
Then, this program is for you!


"I’ve been to other mindful leadership programs, it was inspiring, but it was difficult to apply what I learned. This program is different. I use what I learned here, every day! Everyone on my team can benefit from the SkillfulMeans Leadership Lab."  

                              - Fabio Scheurel, Senior IT Architect, Maiborn Wolff
