Show Notes

Today’s episode may not be for you, because today we’re going to approach the topic of corporate wellness. But, wait. Before you move on to another episode, I want to make you a promise. If you give our guest a few moments, he will likely teach you something that you can apply in your own life. I mean, look, here’s the thing. You can’t have corporate wellness without healthy people. And health is not just about your physical fitness. 

At the end of the day, you simply can’t be fully present at work or fully available to your coworkers without some patience, and self-awareness, and a non-judgmental attitude. Basically, regardless of the macro view, whether we’re talking globally, locally, or on your team, if we aren’t okay with what’s inside of us, we’re not going to be able to add value elsewhere. 

So, How can we practice being a mindful/conscious leader? And, what exactly is the connection between mindfulness, emotional intelligence and our interpersonal relationships? We will approach these topics in our episode today with our special guest, Mindfulness Instructor, Luis Gil.

Luis is a mindfulness instructor with over a decade of experience practicing and teaching at centers and organizations all over North America. He has trained and worked extensively with the community of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

He is a certified teacher of the Search Inside Yourself (SIY) Leadership Institute born at Google. The SIY programs take an evidence-based approach combining neuroscience and mindfulness techniques to teach practical self awareness, emotional intelligence and leadership tools.

If you care about yourself, and the work you do in this world, this indeed episode is for you. Let’s jump in and swim in the wealth of knowledge that lies within the mind, body, and life or Luis Gil.
