We recently held Whil’s very first Creating Mindful Leaders Workshop and are so proud to welcome our first class of Certified Mindful Leaders! We had 40 people join us for 8 hours of highly informational and experiential training where they learned the fundamentals of mindfulness and how to use it to create high-performing and stress-resilient cultures. So how was it? According to our new Certified Mindful Leaders, it was a smash hit, earning an outstanding 9.8 satisfaction rating. Amazing!

Here are what just a few of our attendees had to say about the day:

“I loved the opportunity to connect with new people. The variety in the content and experiences was terrific.”

-Michelle Weldon, Senior Training Manager, Genentech

“What a good group of people! The content was entertaining and well-paced.”

-Stacy Nordwall, Global People Operations at Culture Amp

“I most enjoyed the studies and materials presented in this workshop.”

-Crystal Ruocchio, US Benefits Manager at NetApp

“The breakouts and experiential exercises were great! I really enjoyed this workshop.”

-Lincy Suen, L&D Associate at NerdWallet

“The interactions, the practices and the science all combined made this course an outstanding experience.”

-Laurie Deneschuk, Leader of People and Places at Anki  

We can’t wait to bring this training workshop on the road to four cities on the East Coast next month, where we’ll set out to create even more Certified Mindful Leaders along with our partners, Virgin Pulse. And if you register in the next two weeks, we’ll let you bring a friend or colleague along with you for free. When you go to the registration screen, select two tickets and use the code, “WhilBOGO” in the Promotional Code screen to get the discount.

Join us in your town!

Lastly, a quick word from our CEO, Joe Burton, telling you why you need to join us and become a Certified Mindful Leader yourself… if you weren’t convinced already.

We can’t wait to see you there!
