Our work environments can be challenging. Amidst ever-increasing demands and numerous distractions, we find ourselves caught in a dizzying whirlwind.

Our work environments can be challenging. Amidst ever-increasing demands and numerous distractions, we find ourselves caught in a dizzying whirlwind.

Yet, we strive to make our unique contribution and fully leverage our talents. To live according to our values and satisfy our passions. To lead our life in such a way that we become the best version of ourselves.

Discover with us how to develop thoughtful, intentional, and sustainable leadership that will have a remarkable impact on you, your organization, and the people you care for.

Our approach goes far beyond sharing unprecedented knowledge.

New knowledge is more accessible than ever, but it is not enough.

To make a tangible impact, it must be turned into deliberate actions, and these actions must become lasting habits.

That’s why Mindful Humans goes beyond just imparting knowledge.

Our approach to coaching and leadership training relies on not only management advances but also on breakthroughs in neuroscience.

These are essential for training the brain to develop its capacity to think in remarkable ways, to take action, and to establish new habits.

Leadership is the driving force behind each and every one of us.

It channels our energy, inspiring, directing, and mobilizing our actions to bring our most cherished dreams and ambitions to life.

We are looking for exceptional people who share a passion for learning.

Our program is uniquely designed for everyone who shares the same passion for making a meaningful impact in their personal and professional lives.

The potential for leadership is inherent in each of us, merely waiting to be awakened and nurtured.

By joining our program, participants become part of a vibrant community of deliberate and mindful leaders, transforming into catalysts for positive change.

This transformation empowers them not only to elevate their own lives but also to enrich the lives of those they care about, fostering a circle of influence that extends far beyond themselves.

Our unique approach forms a perfect alliance for extraordinary outcomes.

We integrate leadership development with advances in neuroscience and the practices of mindfulness whose effectiveness is now proven, with scientific evidence to support it.

Our method does not merely reveal the best practices in leadership; it aims to transform knowledge into concrete actions and these actions into solid and enduring habits.

We leverage progress in neuroscience to decrypt the thought processes of our brain and maximize its potential for adaptation and evolution.

In parallel, we encourage the adoption of mindfulness, which can be compared to strength training for the brain. Supported by scientific evidence, it sharpens our ability to focus our attention and objectively observe our thoughts and emotions, facilitating the establishment of new, lasting behaviors.

Mindfulness is the art of directing our attention to the present moment intentionally and without judgment.

It sharpens our ability to reflect, to respond rather than react, and to cultivate a better connection with ourselves and others. It is the key that unlocks our potential, enabling us to fully embrace every moment of our lives.

Without a trained mind, arriving at a good decision is primarily a matter of luck.

Despite a wealth of knowledge, skills, and intellectual rigor, our analytical capacity can be subtly misled, often without our realizing it.

We capture only a minuscule portion of the reality around us and of what unfolds within us. Without specific training, maintaining sustained concentration and gaining perspective amidst the chaos of events proves to be a challenge. Distractions are plentiful, and we frequently remain blind to our own biases and prejudices.

Discover below some surprising revelations from neuroscience.

We are subjected to

11,000,000

pieces of information… per second.

Yet, we only consciously perceive 40 pieces of information – where we focus our attention.

Imagine cultivating your capacity to consciously direct and sustain your attention so you can focus on what truly matters.

Our mind wanders

47%

of the time

Which means that nearly 50%…

This includes the moments when…

Imagine developing your ability to detect when your mind wanders and gently bringing it back to what truly matters.

We only have

0.2 second

between the moment we become aware that we are going to act and the moment we act.

In a fraction of a second, we can either blindly follow our first impulse or confront it and decide to act with discernment.

Imagine having the ability to objectively observe your thoughts and emotions and to take the necessary step back to make an informed decision before it’s too late.

Given these facts, training our mind becomes essential.

Mindfulness practices prove to be indispensable allies to train our brain to focus our attention on what is essential and acting with wisdom, rather than on impulse.

Discover my book, the starting point of the Mindful Humans journey.

Mindful influence focuses on the way human beings think. It enables better decision-making and more effective communication. It fosters the creation of relationships based on empathy and trust. Finally, it inspires others to give their best to achieve common goals.

Mindful influence relies on the impartial observation, in the present moment, of the two ways human beings think: reason and intuition. Observation of ourselves, but also of others.

Discover what our participants say about their experience.

I’ve had the pleasure of attending a few management workshops with Ginette and I’ve really enjoyed them. She challenges you to take a step back and to look at situations from a different perspective. I’ve been able to apply some of her methods and have found it to be beneficial thus far. Not only is she great at what she does but she is a pleasure to be around.

Ginette really helps us become better managers. She takes a very hands-on approach with us, which makes it easier to assimilate the concepts she imparts. She encourages us to reflect on our actions, while giving us sound advice. Ginette feeds our reflections with high-quality content, in addition to keeping abreast of the latest studies in management. It's a pleasure to work with a professional of her calibre. Thank you, Ginette!

Just a quick note to say that the capsules we receive from you are always relevant and judicious. They show a real understanding of the manager's day-to-day role and give us food for thought. I often share them with my management team, and sometimes even with the whole company.

I wanted to take a moment to share them with you, because I know what a commitment it must require. It's important to me that you know there are readers out there, and that this makes us think and move forward.

Pierre-Olivier Lapointe

President | Groupe Lafortune

We engaged Ginette’s services to facilitate a workshop for our team, which is currently in the process of significant transition. We have seen immediate results - stronger alignment, buy in from our team members, and tangible action on what was established as key areas in need of immediate focus. Ginette has a rare ability to adjust to a team’s culture and quickly zone in on the team’s blind spots. We are excited to continue working together, and I have recommended Ginette to many fellow leaders and entrepreneurs as a result!
