Introducing a Contemplative Practice into your Practice
Imagine what the world could look like if we had more awareness or were more skillful in providing constructive feedback to each other!
Jules utilizes “Active Engagement” (the art of active noticing and mindfulness) as a principled way to help teams, clients and consultants, families and loved ones have honest and safe conversations with each other. He promotes self reflection and being more aware of our own behaviors and actions to see if they are in alignment with our espoused values. Are they in sync? Really??? Let’s find out.
Perfect lessons and reminders as we re-emerge into a new world post Covid world.
