When action is strategically informed by a mindful, intentional focus, you and your organization are better able to cut through the noise and clutter to enjoy peak performance.

When leadership and employees reduce their stress levels and are healthier and happier, this directly impacts the bottom line of the organization. We call this the “return on mindfulness” (ROM).

“Dennis facilitated three sessions on the topic of Achieving Mindful Performance and each session had more participants than the one before it. It was obvious from not only those employees that told us but by word of mouth the event was a success and the participants are hungry for more. Dennis was able to share and relate to all who attended whether it was in person or via Zoom. Just in his presence alone, Dennis provided a safe place for each participant that was meaningful and uplifting and non-judgmental. In the days that followed the sessions I had participants share with me how they are using the tips they learned. Now that is priceless!”
