    Pandit Dasa’s Speech Topics

    • Mindfulness and Resilience: Tools to Thrive During Stressful Times

      During our current time of change and uncertainty, our stress and anxiety levels can go through the roof. Navigating a hybrid work environment can create greater challenges to our work-life balance. It is absolutely crucial for us to be able to maintain our mental, physical, and emotional health so we can take care of ourselves, our family and remain productive in our professional life. This talk will address the following items:   

      • Importance of Positive Relationships
      • Healthy Eating
      • Unplugged Sleep
      • Regular Exercise
      • Maintaining a Personal Hobby

      Participants will also learn the science behind mindfulness and will be virtually guided through a variety of mindfulness practices for reducing stress, improving productivity and emotional intelligence. Some of practices are as follows:

      • Breathing — for stress reduction
      • Focusing — for improving one’s ability to concentrate and focus
      • Gratitude — to shift to a more positive mindset
      • Appreciation — develop appreciation for the contributions of our colleagues

    • The Future of Work and Mindful Leadership

      The Great Resignation and the rise in mental health struggles are demanding a transformation in workplace culture. To attract, engage and retain top talent, leaders need to create a more human and employee-centered workplace. 

      It is absolutely crucial for us to lead by example and create a workplace environment that not only encourages but also supports our mental, physical, and emotional well-being so we can perform at a high level while taking care of ourselves and our family.

      This talk will address and provide practical takeaway for the following items:   

      • How to develop positive social connections in a hybrid workplace
      • Research and tips for improving sleep and its benefits
      • The importance of appreciating our colleagues
      • Methods for communicating mindfully to maximize collaboration
      • Maintaining healthy eating habits 
      • Research and benefits of practicing mindfulness at work
      • Practical mindfulness techniques
    • Creating a Mindful and Positive Workplace Culture

      The growth and overall success of an organization is defined by its culture and leadership. A positive workplace culture enhances teamwork, collaboration and morale. As a result it boosts employee engagement, creates greater rapport with clients, and can lead to increased sales.

      This presentation will address the importance of creating an environment where ego battles aren’t driving the company down and where individuals are willing to put aside their own self-interest for the sake of the greater good. It encourages an environment where individuals are willing to appreciate the contributions of their co-workers instead of feeling threatened by them. The research on mindfulness and its application for the workplace will also be presented.

      As a result of this keynote, the audience will be able to:

      • Communicate with awareness, clarity and empathy
      • Build positive relationships with colleagues and clients for increased and repeat sales
      • Manage their emotions to handle conflicts 
      • Develop a positive mindset towards individuals they don’t see eye-to-eye with
      • Express appreciation towards the work of their colleagues
      • Utilize mindfulness breathing and focusing techniques to lower stress and improve productivity
    • Developing Resilience During Change

      Change breaks us out of our comfort zone and disrupts our routine making us feel uncomfortable. However, change is the biggest constant in our life. Most external changes are out of our control and can’t be avoided. What we can do is build resilience and begin to recognize that change is actually the most powerful thing that can happen to us to help us grow, mature and become stronger for the future challenges that are sure to come in our personal and professional life.

      Dasa will help the audience understand practical ways in which our mindset can be shifted to see change as positive and not as a negative and help us accept the inevitability of change.
