Overcoming Burnout through Mindfulness and Mindset

Some of the latest neuroscience and behavioral research suggests that we can systematically train the brain to enhance mental clarity, manage stress and boost resilience in complex environments.

Using science-based and highly practical tools, this hour-long interactive presentation introduces participants to the useful mental habits that promote flourishing and enhance motivation while helping them navigate ongoing stress and the risk of burnout.

This ExecuNet Master Class session is led by Rich Fernandez, PhD, CEO of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute and former head of executive education at Google. Rich writes frequently on the topic of stress and burnout for Harvard Business Review and other publications.

The Search Inside Leadership Institute (SIYLI) was originally developed at Google and later spun off as an independent educational institution that offers the world’s leading science-based mental skill training focused on emotional intelligence.

Currently, SIYLI operates in over 50 countries around the world. Rich’s interactive presentation includes:

  • The neuroscience supporting useful mental habits for flourishing such as emotional intelligence, mindfulness and growth mindsets
  • The role of attention training in enhancing mental clarity and emotional wellbeing
  • Foundational exercises to focus attention, calm the mind and enhance connection
  • Short “micropractices” to integrate immediately into life and daily work.
  • Exercises to help reconnect to motivation and purpose

Here’s what some people who attended the the live class had to say:

  • “One of the most insightful presentations I have attended on the subject!”
  • “Masterful content prepared by a credentialed specialist on a topic of current relevance.”
  • “Great way to remind all leaders of the importance of being mindful of themselves as well as their employees. “
  • “Fantastic opportunity for personal growth.”
  • “The breathing thing was awesome!”
  • “Becoming more mindful is contagious and who wouldn’t want more of that in the world!”
