The Mindful EAStructure
Over these guided modules, Executive Assistants will learn to overcome the challenge of competing demands and distractions, and flip their mental state for complete mental control and engagement with their best work.
Module 01: Attention and the Now
You’ll embrace the often-elusive ‘present moment’ and harness the attention required to experience it at will.
Module 02: Automaticity
Grasp the ‘automation’ of your thoughts and clearly see how these thoughts result in the emotions you experience. With awareness of these thoughts, can come the option of change.
Module 03: Judgement
Experience the judgemental nature of your mind, and its problematic aspects and how to remove these obstacles for greater mental awareness.
Module 04: Acceptance
Learn to experience ‘Acceptance’ – a profound mindfulness technique designed to allow restricting and distracting emotions to pass with ease..
Module 05: Goals
Upon taking care of the ‘present moment’, this week, we shift our awareness to the future to set goals in a way that inspires and motivates.
Module 06: Compassion
Throughout the achievement of goals, you’re likely to experience the ‘Inner Critic’. Compassion is taught here to instantly resolve the tension and keep you on track towards your goals.
Module 07: The Ego
This module will assist you to realise the fears and stories holding you back – are just that – stories. With this awareness comes the choice to create new, empowering stories.
Module 08: Integration
Learn the next steps and integrate your new practices into your daily life.

The Mindful EAWhat Our ClientsSay
This training has been so valuable for me. Going through a rough time at work, with lots of change, this program has helped ground me and realign my focus to what’s important. It’s been really insightful and very good to learn about the psychology and science behind what makes us tick. I would highly recommend this training, you can do it in your own time and revisit whenever you’re having a tough day or week.
Before I started this training, having done a huge amount of learning and development, I had some idea of what mindfulness was, however this has given me a far greater understanding and helped me greatly in my role as Executive Assistant. The session on judgement had a big impact, and every time I do the training another light bulb goes off. If you are on the fence about doing this training, I would say go for it. There are so many resources included, and it will help just as much in your personal life as it does for work.
