MindFULLness for Peak Performance: The Cure for INFObesity

We are constantly bombarded with information to filter through, requests to engage, additional projects, responsibilities and general overwhelm. This overload is termed INFOBesity. It affects our performance as well as our working relationships. Through Mind-FULL-ness practices - including focus, high performance habits, emotional intelligence, energy checks, and strategy and meditation time – we will find a way to simplify and make sense of the craziness, forming effective strategies for high performance moving forward.
