Mindfulness: A pathway to a richer life, and more profitable business.

The most-successful leaders are those who create a positive impact on the lives around them. And mindfulness practices are a key to becoming healthier, happier, and more connected to ourselves and to others. We guide leaders in personal and professional transformation through mindfulness programs, peer forums, coaching, and educational workshops.

Why Quantum Lead?

We bring decades of business experience as well as expertise in mindfulness, facilitation, leadership coaching, group dynamics, psychology, entrepreneurship, communication, and team building. This supports our mission of delivering personal growth, purpose, connectedness and a mastery of life skills.

The Facts

The data speaks for itself: research shows that the annual growth rate for companies whose leaders belong to a peer forum outperforms those that don’t. According to a 2009 ICF Global Coaching Survey:

  • 99% of all companies or individuals who hire a coach are satisfied with the overall experience.
  • 96% would repeat the process
  • 70% report improved work performance
  • 80% report improved self confidence
  • 86% report that they made back at least their investment


A global survey by PriceWaterhouseCoopers and the Association Resource Centre found that the mean ROI in coaching was 7 times the initial investment. Over a quarter of coaching clients reported a return of 10 to 49 times the cost.

Mindful work.

Positivity. Productivity. Profitability.

Work is rarely 9 to 5. We are up and at it, bouncing from task-to-task, meeting-to-meeting from the moment the alarm sounds. Living in a state of constant reaction can have devastating consequences on our mood, our health, our relationships, and our happiness. Our programs are designed to help you create the work/life balance you want, with mindfulness at the core.

Mindfulness Programs

Our programs are designed around organizational goals, the developmental objectives of individual members, and themes that emerge from the dynamic of the team. Each engagement offers participants an opportunity to be self-reflective, to gain perspective on their leadership, and to leverage the wisdom of their peers.  Our programs focus on the following themes:

WorkJoy: Experiencing more joy on the job.
Noble Communication: Learning how to listen with grace and communicate with power.
Coaching: Awaken who you are with performance-based, one-on-one training and guidance.
Mindful Innovation: A unique path to ideation and accessing group genius via mindfulness practices.

The Four Pillars


Both ancient wisdom traditions and modern psychologists say our mindful moments are our happiest, most productive moments. When we are mindful, we are living in the present, not trapped in the past or seduced by the future. We help you develop mindfulness practices to reduce stress, become more present at work, enhance your ability to focus, and get it done so you can enjoy life.


Our future depends on our ability to sustain and renew our own energy, and the energy of our employees. We help leaders tie together economic progress, social awareness, and environmental best practices in order to support these delicate ecosystems for future generations.


We help leaders make the vital changes to achieve physical and emotional health, positive work environments, satisfying relationships, clarity of purpose, and financial security. Complete well-being depends on these essential elements that provide the energy and vitality to increase productivity.

Positive Leadership

Breakthrough results happen when leaders walk their talk. We help you develop ways to show gratitude, encourage dialogue, generate enthusiasm, provide positive feedback, and recognize employees—which ultimately creates more value for your organization.
