“Very informative event. 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 wellbeing if we want to lead the way for others.
That’s why I invite you to join me for the 15th edition of Mindful Manager on Tuesday 23 July in Manchester.
“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 training 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.
“It was an open discussion, there was no agenda, no objectives. We let the conversation and energy flow where it wanted to go. It filled my soul. Thank you so much for your amazing work and energy.”
“Thank you, Christoph. Great session, definitely learned something and a will to act. More people should take time out to attend. By giving & receiving I feel more energised. Catch you next time.”
“I always take away so much from these sessions.”
“It was lovely to see you in person today at the mindful manager meet up. I found it very insightful and I am truly grateful to have had the chance to listen to and meet like-minded people.”
“Great session! Thank you, Christoph, for a Mindful Manager. Very inspired and insightful.”
“Thank you so much for the space this evening. Feeling much lighter and more balanced!”
“Hi Chris, just wanted to say thank you for the event – it was nice and great to meet interesting people. And as always very comfortable to be around you.”

Since so many of us are opening up about mental wellbeing challenges, here’s something I have been working through… If you sometimes feel “weird” although you’re absolutely fine, perhaps you are, like me, an “Empath.” A highly sensitive person who experiences energy in a different and often unsettling way. In this introductory video I explain how the “symptoms” began to show up for me as a teenager. In my work as a speaker, coach and trainer today I had no choice but to learn more about this sensitivity and how I can make it work for me and those I serve.

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.
