Making a Mighty Mini-Mi: The Joy of Mentoring

If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. —Isaac Newton Last time we explored the wonders of the prefrontal cortex, the thing that makes us...well, us. This time we shall talk of mentoring, the art and science of sharing with others all that...

Know Your Brain: The Prefrontal Cortex

Last time we discussed the value of practice, and how dangerous practice is if not paired with feedback. Today, I would like to introduce you to the first in a series of articles titled “Know Your Brain.” Each article will discuss a brain area, neurochemical, or other valuable brain concept.

The Definition of Insanity: Why Practice Alone is a Recipe for Disaster

When it comes to building our skills, feedback is not the first tool most people consider. In my workshops, whenever I ask what it takes to get better at something, the first thing I hear is, “Practice!”

Change a Little, Gain a Lot: The Transformative Power of Feedback

Last week we talked about attacking problems rather than people. This week we return to one of our favorite topics: the gift of feedback. This post is adapted from the introduction to our book “Where’s the Gift? Using Feedback to Work Smarter, Learn Faster and Avoid Disaster.”

You Don’t Know Me! Attacking Problems, Not People

Are you happier this week than you were last week? If you read our previous post, I hope the answer is yes! Today is about how to influence others by striking at problems rather than people.

This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things! The Neuroscience of Happiness

This week’s article is adapted from our book Why the Rhino Scatters his S#!T: Expanding Your Fun, Fulfillment, and Impact at Work.

The Curse of Criticism: Why Feedback Hurts, Even When We Want It

Last week, we set the stage for the New Year with a discussion about goal setting and how to make goals actually work. This week, we will address a topic near and dear to my heart: the neuroscience behind why feedback conversations are so difficult.

Setting Goals that Work: How to Beat the Lazy Brain

Given our love of setting New Year’s goals that are then thrown away faster than an ugly Christmas sweater, today, we will talk about settings goals that work.

It’s How We’ve Always Done It: Why We Love What We’ve Already Got

Last week, we talked about the genius of that “damned fool” Abraham Lincoln. This week addresses one of the greatest philosophical questions of our modern age: Coke or Pepsi. (The following is adapted from our book Why the Rhino Scatters his S#!T: Expanding Your Fun, Fulfillment, and Impact at Work.)

The Damned Fool: Abraham Lincoln and the Art of Receiving Feedback

Last week, your humble author discussed what a cheap anti-tipping foreign weirdo he is, and the value of meeting others’ unspoken needs—at work and at home. Today is about, and I quote, the “damned fool” Abraham Lincoln.

ABOUT OUR MEDITATION TRAINING

meditation has been helping people achieve greater focus and peace of mind for aeons. 22% of employers in the united states (including dozens of fortune 500 companies) offer meditation training for their employees.

Are you looking for practical applications of mindfulness practice to help you or your team succeed in your professional and personal lives?

We can help.

PRACTICAL MEDITATION

Meditation is the art of paying attention to the present and to the inner workings of your own brain.

Thousands of thoughts run frantically through your head each day, vying for your attention. Meditation helps you manage those thoughts and focus on what really matters. In addition, meditation reminds us that all thought and emotion is temporary, and that our brain can be taught to identify more healthy patterns of thinking.

Research backs the many benefits of meditation. Meditation can help individuals physically, emotionally and mentally. It is simply a matter of training and experience.

Step Change Meditation helps your team by providing a deeper understanding of the benefits of meditation, while giving practical tips on how to integrate a meditative practice into their busy schedules.

MINDFULNESS

Our practical meditation focuses specifically on cultivating mindfulness. An increase in mindfulness optimizes personal and organizational health and performance by helping individuals:

  • Focus the distracted mind
  • Strengthen willpower
  • Improve cognitive capacity, creativity, and resilience
  • Generate space to respond rather than merely react
  • Increase overall health, energy, and wellbeing

Step Change Meditation offers customized, practical training in which we explore the best practices and tools necessary to grow a mindfulness practice within your organization.
