Everyday you wake up to an endless stream of information. I call it…
Emails, texts, tweets, voice mails, sales pitches, videos and podcasts all vying for your precious time and attention.
As a 21st century leader you are faced with 4 big problems:
1. DIGITAL DISTRACTION
And it’s getting louder and coming at you faster everyday.
Our attention is valuable. So why do we give it away so carelessly? Like a slowly boiling frog, we fail to notice that distractions pile up and prevent us from doing the important work in our business.
To grow your business you decide to go to a conference or a live event to learn, network and get away.
But at the conference you’re faced with a fresh onslaught of sensory information, lights, music, technology, power-points, breakouts, exercises, networking, booths and you guessed it…
Meanwhile, digital distractions like emails and texts from your clients, team and family just keep piling up.
And your attention span is getting shorter by the second.
Wait… let me go check my inbox.
The increased speed of life and ever changing landscape of business can quickly lead to burnout and stress.
And it’s getting harder and harder to find the silence and solitude you desperately need in order to self-reflect, think clearly, make decisions and do the important creative work that drives your business.
Good decision-making requires focus, right?
How many times a day do you check social media and your email?
How do you find focus when your mind is addicted to the habit of distraction?
With distraction comes reaction.
If there’s a problem, you react. You get an email, you react. You get a call from a family member, you react.
In reaction mode you are not thinking clearly and you most certainly are not in the flow state.
At the end of your day you realize that you did many little things that really didn’t add up to the important work you need to do for your business.
Minfulness for Business Success
At cutting-edge businesses like Google, Facebook and Twitter, meditation is the new caffeine. Meditation and mindfulness are thriving in company culture.
At a time when more than eight in 10 U.S. employees report experiencing stress at work, and stress costs American companies an estimated $300 billion each year, mindfulness meditation is needed more than ever.
Google’s mindfulness training program “Search Inside Yourself,” established in 2007, proved so practical and popular that last year Google spun it off into a freestanding unit — Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute — devoted to “creating enlightened leaders worldwide.”
The Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate University offers a class entitled “Executive Mind” because “all manner of research supports the idea that mindfulness — paying attention to what’s happening in the present moment — is essential to becoming an effective leader.
Several leaders in the entertainment industry use meditation to connect with and channel their creative genius. This impressive list includes, but is not limited to, Tina Turner, Sting, Madonna, Gwenyth Paltrow, Oliver Stone, Harrison Ford, George Lucas & the comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
Elite athletes such as Tiger Woods, Bruce Lee, and Magic Johnson use meditation to sharpen their skills and focus their mind.

“I own a technology company with 14 employees that has constant deadlines and stress that just comes along with the job. I knew Ken could help!Over a couple month period Ken led us though mindfulness meditation.
Even from the first session, I was so impressed at the calm and quiet I experienced.
What a great way to start the day, as well as learning some valuable mindfulness techniques that could be practiced at our desks during the day.
I would highly recommend Ken LaDeroute!”

“It is rare that I give myself the gift of being in the present moment.
But when I attend one of Ken’s meditation classes he brings me to the present moment quickly and effortlessly.
With a warm, friendly manner he gently guides me into deep relaxation and mindfulness. I always walk away feeling calm, centered and recharged.
The effects of meditation are cumulative and seem to spill over into my week.
I notice a difference in my state of mind. I’m less attached to things that used to cause me tension and I find my hectic life to be more manageable and less overwhelming.
I always feel better after having attended Ken’s meditation class. Practicing meditation has made a huge difference in my career and personal life.”
~ Leigh Mitchell, Photography Instructor, Asheville, North Carolina

As he guides us into mindful meditation I find his voice so soothing and reassuring.

He has a great way of telling stories and applying the lessons in his teachings.
He shares practical insights and wisdom I can take with me throughout my work day.
