The Women’s Business Center, hosted by Jefferson Economic Development Institute, is expanding course offerings to include topics such as Mindfulness for Business: Train Your Attention, Strengthen Your Resilience and Promote Positive Change. The three-week training will be held on Tuesdays, May 2, 9 and 16, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the JEDI training lab at 205 Chestnut Street in Mount Shasta.


This workshop is designed for anyone interested in learning how mindfulness practices can harness the neuroscience of change to enhance personal and professional effectiveness and satisfaction.


Mindfulness trainer, Kristen Stroud, M.A., explains, “There is a powerful economic rationale for investing in personal wellbeing and performance when results transfer to higher levels of efficiency, morale, creativity, productivity and customer satisfaction and lower levels of absenteeism and burnout.”


Schools, businesses, hospitals and organizations around the world have been applying the science and practice of mindfulness to great effect: Increased health and wellbeing with improved student and employee satisfaction and engagement, stated a recent press release from JEDI.


Joy Taylor, director of the Women’s Business Center, sees the value of stress resilience training. “After working with many business professionals over the years, I’ve seen how overwhelm and stress can derail people if they don’t have the inner skills to find more balance, patience and focus. I believe that this course will help entrepreneurs prevent burnout, which helps businesses survive and thrive.”


“Kristen’s training went beyond my expectations. I gained a deeper understanding of my clients’ needs, a better ability to solve problems and a stronger capacity to see other perspectives without judgement. I believe anyone would benefit from her trainings,” says Mark Clure, CFP, AAMS Financial Advisor in Mount Shasta.


Longtime trainer, educator and facilitator, Kristen Stroud, M.A., provides practical tools for enhancing personal and professional effectiveness and satisfaction. She applies the neuroscience of mindfulness, positive psychology, emotional intelligence and self-directed change to enhance communication, compassion, conflict prevention, stress resilience and self-mastery with a wide variety of audiences.
