EDC offers free work­shop on mind­ful­ness for business

The San Juan Coun­ty Eco­nom­ic Devel­op­ment Coun­cil will present a FREE work­shop on the top­ic of mind­ful­ness in busi­ness, on Wednes­day, March 8th from 10:00 to 11:00 am on San Juan Island. Advance reg­is­tra­tion is required.

Mind­ful­ness was once con­sid­ered a fringe move­ment in the West­ern world, but is now being used by com­pa­nies around the coun­try – includ­ing For­tune 500 busi­ness­es like Aet­na and Google. Employ­ers have found that it low­ers health costs, improves employ­ee pro­duc­tiv­i­ty and helps busi­ness own­ers and employ­ees stay sharply focused on tasks.

The work­shop will be taught by not­ed man­age­ment con­sul­tant, Mike Sanders, author of the book Advanced Mul­ti­task­ing. From his web­site, www.advanced-multitasking.com: “Mike Sanders is a senior pro­gram man­ag­er, change man­ag­er, instruc­tor, pub­lic speak­er, tech­ni­cal writer, pub­lished author, and Native Amer­i­can. He cham­pi­ons a col­lab­o­ra­tive, ser­vant-leader approach to man­age­ment with a pas­sion in orga­ni­za­tion­al psychology.”

Details: San Juan Island, on Wednes­day, March 8th from 10–11 a.m. at the San Juan Island Library in Fri­day Har­bor. Free work­shop; advance reg­is­tra­tion is required: https://edcmindfulness.eventbrite.com. For more infor­ma­tion, please call 360–378-2906 or email: info [@] sanjuansedc.org.

The EDC thanks San Juan Coun­ty gov­ern­ment, our ports, the Town of Fri­day Har­bor, Her­itage Bank, Islanders Bank and the Depart­ment of Com­merce for their sup­port of this workshop.

The San Juan Coun­ty Eco­nom­ic Devel­op­ment Coun­cil (EDC) strives to strength­en and diver­si­fy the econ­o­my of San Juan Coun­ty. We believe a strong econ­o­my builds a strong com­mu­ni­ty. The EDC works to build an envi­ron­ment that helps busi­ness own­ers cre­ate jobs. We serve busi­ness: link­ing orga­ni­za­tions and resources, pro­vid­ing valu­able infor­ma­tion, ren­der­ing assis­tance and advo­cat­ing for an improved island busi­ness environment.
