Discuss. Afterwards, we will have an interactive discussion where participants share what they experienced and any challenges or concerns will be addressed.
Do. At the end of the session, participants will create their own a Mindfulness Action Plan so they have a way to sustain their practice.

Mindful Time Management
This program busts the myth of ‘I am busy, so I don’t have time’. We discuss with the participants busting myths on “busyness” and list the time wasters. Than present tools of prioritisation, effective time allocation, address procrastination and introduce mindfulness practices used by successful people. Participants practice mindfulness techniques during the program and take away an action plan.
This initiative is a mix of all the above modules plus a range of trust building activities. It is a experience based team bonding program focusing on inner and outer connection building a strong relationship with oneself and the team plus listening, communicating and handling team projects effectively. It also imparts empathy, compassion and forgiveness using unique methods and tools involving music, drumming, dance and play.

Shakti Leadership - Mastering Mindfulness Program
Based on Zen Principles and insights/themes from the organisation, this program is customised for employees in challenging leadership roles. It prepares leaders to simply understand the employees and situations mindfully, act calmly, come up with creative solutions, give creative feedback that empowers subordinates, give opportunities to grow and handle conflicts like a pro. Participants also learn to use tools from Dr. Robert Cialdini’s work to optimise conversations and negotiate effectively.
Zen says Facilitation is moving from known to the unknown. It's a simple engaging- emerging process to arrive at strategic solutions.
Design End-to-End Training programs keeping in mind the 'ADDIE' cycle.
- Begin with understanding the organisation, it’s culture, working styles, HR and L&D functioning and current needs
- Dig deeper and trace the underlying crux of the issue
- Design a experiential program to make the participants realise the cost of not solving the problem and their subtle unconscious actions that are causing potential issue
- Orchestrate a meaningful conversation as a as a neutral anchor to emerge with solutions in a safe and respectful space, a nurturing environment where participants achieve the objective in the timeframe they are comfortable
- At the end, participants make a decision, come up with a solution, resolve conflict or take practice tools to sustain the effect
We believe in the enhancement of content development and delivery through:
1. Dr. Benjamin Bloom's Taxonomy of learning behaviour
2. ADDIE cycle
3. David Kolb’s learning styles model and experiential learning theory (ELT).
