Global Management Consulting Firm
In a demanding, always-on consulting culture, attention is under siege. For consultants and staff to succeed, paying attention to project details, to the client, and to the task at hand is absolutely essential.
Through the roll-out of an international mindfulness training program, the leadership sought to improve sustainable performance for partners and consultants. The program was specifically customized to their fast-paced minds and the work realities they faced every day. Managing priorities, emails and overall mental effectiveness were some of the chosen topics.

What They Said:
“Mindfulness at first appeared to be a soft skill training. But in my experience of it, it is not soft at all. It is hard work and requires discipline and determination. I personally struggled at first, but when I suddenly found my overall work focus and mental clarity improving, I got seriously committed. I believe this training on a large scale benefits not only our bottom line, but also our well-being and happiness.”
Partner and Managing Director
“The mindfulness training helped me realize how I constantly get distracted during the work day and how these distractions affect me, my effectiveness and personal well-being. The theoretical explanations were supported by daily practice and these have stayed with me in my daily routines, helping me to focus. I am more in charge of my time and more clear about how I spend it.”
