According to Gallup’s State of The Workplace, report employees have never been more stressed, which the American Institute of Stress says is costing US businesses $300 billion dollars per year.

Harvard Business Review research also shows that we are only present about 50% of the day. That means in our forty hour workweek we’re actually only productive twenty hours. Simply put, this stress pulls us out of the present moment.

In this program mindfulness keynote speaker, Mike Lee demonstrates that the present moment is where high-performance, engagement, and well-being all exist. We spend time in the past stuck in guilt, anger or regret. Or we’re in the future in anxiety, planning, or worry.

The bottom line is technology advances, information, and distractions are not going to slow down.  Our external environment is not going to change.  The change has to come from the place within. Mindfulness keynote speaker Mike Lee explains how by building a foundation in mindfulness we unlock the emotional IQ, develop the self-awareness and cultivate the resilience needed to thrive in this demanding, rapidly changing, and uncertain world.
