Modern work and leadership requires a relentless focus on performance and outcomes. Those at the top of their game in high performance sports have taught us that sustainable performance only happens when we balance performance and care, or activation and recovery. This requires a degree of self-regulation and skills in managing our stress levels, attention and emotions. In this workshop we dive into what balancing performance and care truly means in the world of modern work, gaining key insights into both neuroscience and the practice of mindfulness that allow us to integrate this balance into our work and leadership skills.
