“I enrolled in one of the Mindfulness Leadership courses and it had such a positive impact on my approach to work. I use the tools he taught regularly and my meetings have more authentic participation and we get more done! Personally, I feel more grounded as I listen more and talk less so I get the best solutions from my team. I highly recommend any professional take a mindfulness course with Optimistic Brain.”
