  27. 27. Public Speaking Workshops Flourishing Programs What is mindfulness? Why and how is being applied in the best organizations in the world? What are the benefits for the employees, for teams and organizations? ! Through interactive lectures is possible not only to answer these and other questions, but also to perform some brief mindfulness exercises. How to use mindfulness on a daily basis within organizations t o d e v e l o p e m o t i o n a l intelligence, productivity and well-being, particularly those who have leadership roles? ! Interactive workshops, of initiation to mindfulness based emotional intelligence, with exploratory exercises done individually and in small groups. Emotional intelligence is a skill and, as such, must be cultivated in order to be fully manifested. The mindfulness based techniques are the safest and fastest way to do it. ! These are programs designed a c c o r d i n g l y , a l l o w i n g participants to become more aware of themselves and others, and to really flourish!

  33. 33. Facilitation
  34. 34. Vasco Gaspar believes that a "new world" is possible in organizations. A world where wise and compassionate leaders are really able to "lead from the future as it emerges" as well as to inspire people to flourish into their highest potential, igniting a real evolution in teams and organizations. With a toolbox filled with "cutting-edge" awareness-based technologies (e.g. Search Inside Yourself, ZBHD/Mindfulness, Integral Model, Presencing/Theory U, Element-B) his dream is to co-create this future, something that he has been doing in the last 10 years at different organizations as a Facilitator and with the general public around the globe as a Social Entrepreneur. During one year (2014) he was trained by SIYLI (Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute) with some of the world greatest specialists in the fields of Mindfulness, Emotional Intelligence and Neurociences, like Daniel J. Siegel, Chade-Meng Tan, Marc Lesser, Rick Hanson, Pamela Weiss, Mark Coleman, Shauna Shapiro, Norman Fischer, among others, to become one of the first persons in the world certified to facilitate Search Inside Yourself, a Leadership and Emotional Intelligence Program, based on Mindfulness and Neurosciences, that was developed and tested at GOOGLE to increase organizational performance and wellbeing, as well as to enhance the conditions for world peace, by inspiring leaders worldwide to become more wise and compassionate. After the certification he was invited to become one of the 10 mentors for the 2015 teacher training world class. VASCOGASPAR.COM ZORBUDDHA.ORG
