WORKPLACE TRAINING & EXECUTIVE COACHING



Mitra designs and delivers Mindful Workplace Training Programs which lay the foundation for employees to learn the principles of mindfulness and apply them at work on an ongoing basis, while also developing a personal mindfulness practice.

These programs are designed around your company’s unique organizational wants & needs, and cover such areas as mindful communication, decision-making, problem-solving, email and technology, deadlines, time-management, stress-management, work-life balance, and much more.

Stand-alone executive programs focus on mindful leadership, purpose and values, big picture decision-making, clear communication and goals, skillful delegation and boundaries, stress management and a happy balance between work and home.

Both programs lead to more creativity and productivity, personal and organizational happiness and health, less absenteeism and an increasingly positive bottom line.

Mitra’s programs integrate decades of teaching Eastern mindfulness practices with decades of Western corporate training/coaching experience.
