Coaching for resilience
 

Better Organizations Start with Resilient Teams

The success of your organisation depends on your team, but what happens when your team struggles to perform at its full potential? While you can’t eliminate stress, adversity and uncertainty from the workplace, you can help your team cultivate the mindfulness skills to navigate difficult situations more effectively.

Our Cultivating Resilience with Mindfulness (CRM) Workshops is designed to do just that.

Through experiential training incorporating group and individual activities, our experienced trainers can help your team members sharpen their situational and self-awareness and strengthen their inner resilience.

Ultimately, our aim is to drive the success of your organisation by empowering your team to perform at a higher level in any situation.

Why mindfulness
Our Cultivating Resilience with Mindfulness Workshop is designed around the belief that peak performance is all about being in the flow and embracing mindfulness as a life skill – in other words, paying attention with intention to the present moment. By using mindfulness as the foundation of our workshop, we can help you drive transformational change in your team through greater resilience and self-awareness. We truly believe that better organisational performance starts with mindful leaders and teams.


About our trainers
Han Ee, a performance psychologist, is the first Singaporean to be fully qualified through the direct training pathway with the Center for Mindfulness (CFM) @ UMass – the origins and home of MBSR – and trained under the direction of Jon Kabat-Zinn to deliver the MBSR program.

Drawing from close to 20 years of experience in high-performance domains (leadership, corporate and sports), Han Ee stands by the adage of "less is more" in the pursuit of excellence and mastery. He aims to hack the conventional approach to performance development by helping his clients find their flow and get in the zone on demand – anytime, anywhere – through the discipline of mindfulness.

He is an experienced executive coach (qualified with the International Coach Federation) and corporate training facilitator, working actively with a diverse range of clients including MNC leaders, executives, Red Bull athletes, royalty, professional athletes, soldiers and other high performers.

Han Ee is also the first instructor in this region to integrate biofeedback and assessment profiles into the MBSR program to evaluate and quantify behavioural changes before and after meditation training.

Testimonials

"At first I was skeptical about working with Han Ee, as we had no mutual business contacts/referrals, but I'm glad I took the risk. Han Ee is extremely humble about his expertise, but he impressed our Regional Leadership team in the 3 hours we allocated to him to talk to us about mindfulness. It was a success to me because of 2 simple things: He was able to embed the importance of mindfulness within my leadership team and he gave practical tools to get us started. We are now investing more time to understand and spread mindfulness within our organization." T. Nguyen, Associate Director, Regional Operations, Nielsen
