SatiMind’s founder Erik Leslie will give you an introduction to mindful techniques that improve the competencies of self-awareness and self-regulation. These simple techniques can improve team cohesion and help teams gain different perspectives. Learn how many high performing teams incorporate mindfulness everyday to increase performance, reduce stress and develop empathy. 

Empathy is one of the most important design tools when designing for our users. But empathy is also an important life skill that can improve communication, collaboration and creativity. Exploration x Design’s founder Jess Lowry will take you through a simple team exercise you can use to cultivate deeper empathy for yourself and your team.
