Well-Being In Business is a full day immersive experience facilitated by Konda Mason (USA), Founder & CEO Impact Hub Oakland, and Well-Being In Business Lab, and is designed to invite you to explore and begin the shifts within yourself and your organisation that are required to move from 'me' to 'we'. The immersion guides participants in augmenting well-being - both personally, and organisationally.
What does it take to be truly well? Find out and take well-being - yours and your business's - to the next level.
In a world of high intensity, high performance, hyper connection, rapid change, and Trumpism, it is easy to feel besieged in the relentless pace. Leaders are increasingly recognising the important benefits of mindfulness, exercise, sleep and play, on both the body and the brain. In this unique-to-Australia experience, Konda Mason takes well-being to the next level, drawing on the work of the Well-Being In Business Lab at UC Berkley's Greater Good Science Centre.
This immersion goes beyond mindfulness, mental and emotional health, leaping towards a wholistic framework of well-being essential to thriving humans and thriving businesses.

What You'll Gain From Attending
We are delighted to offer you this immersive experience, where you'll benefit from the wisdom, leadership, innovation and heart of some of the globe's foremost practitioners and thinkers around well-being in business.
In 2015, Konda Mason, amongst several other luminaries in the mindfulness and personal transformation space came together in the USA to create the first Well-Being In Business Lab. The intention behind the Lab was profound. The central belief underpinning it was that business should be aligned with what actually makes us deeply well… and that we desire to be the change. Based on large scale well-being practice (Gross National Happiness in Bhutan), and partners in the Global Well-Being Lab, the curriculum was driven by the latest in scientific research from the Greater Good Science Center.
Within the context of four pillars Konda will apply methods and practices to the ten 'Keys to Well-Being' - Altruism, Awe, Compassion, Diversity, Empathy, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Happiness, Mindfulness, and Social Connection.
With attendees, Konda Mason will explore the leading practices out of the Greater Good Science Centre at UC, Berkely, particularly the wholistic framework of Well-Being In Business as it applies to the four key pillars of:
Many of us have only recently explored and engaged in the development of mindfulness practices, and mindful leadership, recognising that being mindful has a profound impact on our well-being, mental health, emotional health and on our capacity to truly lead. Well-Being In Business takes the impact of mindfulness to the next level - demonstrating through evidence and application how the four pillars are necessary in unlocking total well-being in the whole person and in our businesses.
Take away key learnings:
* How well-being in business is an imperative, not a 'nice to have' personally and in the workplace
* Practices to enable you to consider the four pillars in relation to your self and your organisation
* Applications of the four pillars for personal well-being and business well-being
* Practical tools and real world stories of business approaches to address mental, physical, emotional health in the workplace
Who Should Attend?
This immersion is for the courageous leaders ready to shift gear both on a personal/inner leadership level and at the business/organisation level. It is for those who share a vision for a future of work that cares deeply for the human beings at the centre of good work, done well.
It is for leaders who seek to show up with intention and own well-being on a level they haven't yet considered possible. Everything you learn through the immersion has a clear and deliberate application to your role as a leader and shaper of organisational values and culture.
Due to the nature of this immersive experience, there are limited places available at each of the events. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
