Mindfulness may make you more relaxed, but it is not a relaxation technique. Relaxation is a desirable side-effect of a changed state of mind. You will be systematically trained in mindfulness techniques using traditional and modern exercises, with the emphasis on integrating these into your routine. Experience shows that this is the greatest challenge, but also the decisive factor if sustained effectiveness is to be achieved.
What you will be capable of after completing this specialist course:
Leadership: you will be able to deal more attentively with employees, superiors and colleagues, react with more composure to challenges and thus lead more effectively.
Burnout prevention: you will be able to pay more attention to yourself and better process professional challenges, therefore improving your satisfaction with life and work.
Sustainability: you will be able to maintain and develop your own use of mindfulness.
All participants will receive a confirmation of participation. Participants who meet the admission requirements for studying at a university of applied sciences and who successfully complete the proof of competence will be awarded 3 ECTS credits. These will be shown on the course confirmation certificate.
