Join inspirational author and omotenashi consultant Christoph Spiessens for a refreshingly different talk on Mindfulness in business.

“Turning encounters into extraordinary moments of engagement”

If you think mindfulness is only about stress management, think again. It’s so much more. In fact, mindfulness is a business strategy. Come along to this inspirational -and practical- talk and discover how mindfulness can turbo charge employee engagement, sales and customer satisfaction at your business.

This educational talk was also presented at Google Digital Garage and Manchester MMU and was sold out on both occasions.

Christoph draws on extensive experience from working in Japan and looks forward to sharing the key “omotenashi” and “Ichi go Ichi e” principles to help you boost mindfulness in the workplace, which results in improved quality and productivity. Get your ticket today!

My Workshop: “Healer, heal thyself”

Yogis are givers. You sense opportunities to help others wherever you go. You’re the listening ear, the counsellor, the provider of energy. People feel uplifted after spending time with you. It’s a rewarding way of life and you’ve embraced your special gift. During the festival we encourage you to take some time out to top up your own energy levels in a uniquely different way.

This is a workshop that will help you:

– Remove blocks around receiving
– Give without feeling depleted
– Strike a balance that’s perfect for you!

MINDFUL MANAGER edition 10 - The Holistic Coaching Seminar for Wholehearted Leaders
ENQUIRE NOW for date and booking info

“Very informative evening. Great listening to others. Christoph really makes you think.”

When helping others grow is not just a rewarding career choice but your raison d’être, the pressure to be a role model can be significant.

Always in the frontline absorbing energy from clients and colleagues, under significant pressure to drive change within an organisation, or trying to establish our own work/life balance, times can get stressful for leaders.

What makes it worse is the (often self-imposed) pressure that we have to be the perfect role model and somehow be masters at handling change, anxiety, and uncertainty. Yet we are human beings too and need to look after our own mental health if we want to lead the way for others.

That’s why I invite you to join me for the 10th edition of Mindful Manager!

Mindful Manager is about soul-deep coaching conversations that heal the past and inspire the future.

“It was amazing to see what happens when we’re given the opportunity to open up and share our feelings outside of a formal structure. All sorts of really interesting insights emerged.”

No slide decks, no models, no graphs. Just a safe space for participants to decompress, recharge and network with like-minded conscious leaders.

I will host a short inspirational talk and after that there’s plenty of time for Q&A in open-forum style. Nothing is off-limits; the challenges of wholehearted leadership, life purpose, the soul journey, anxiety, impostor syndrome, loneliness, relationships, …

I’m looking forward to sharing coaching energy to help you resolve personal and professional challenges and create more headspace in a uniquely refreshing way.

Whether you have a specific question or just want to come along to recharge your batteries and network… Mindful Manager is the inspirational event for you (and of course non-managers are also welcome!)

It’s OK to put yourself first… You can’t pour from an empty cup.

Christoph was contacted by GoLive Events to design and deliver a motivational workshop for the teenager Finalists of the Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards in Delhi, India. He created a workshop called “Domino” which focused on the importance of a positive mindset and using your jury-selected volunteer project to inspire the next generation of young volunteers. The whole event was a huge success and Christoph has certainly lost a part of his heart in beautiful India.
