Discover The New Research-Based Program that Will Bring You Greater Focus, Increased Success, and More Fulfillment in Your Work.
Introducing… An online mindfulness course for busy executives who want to be better leaders and more productive at work.
Let me guess…
You’re smart, accomplished, and want to be better at what you do. So how do you do that without piling more pressure onto your shoulders?
The answer is simple: by learning the psychological principles of mindfulness that provide you with:
the head space to make important decisions
the presence to create deep connections
the creativity to come up with fresh ideas
the courage to break with the status quo and do what’s right
If you find yourself plowing through your work days on automatic pilot, you already know how easy it can be to unintentionally neglect an important relationship or miss a golden opportunity…
That’s why it’s so important to let your brain function at its fullest by taking the time to pause and be present in the moment. The result?
You can see more, be more, and do more as you:
proactively manage stress
communicate with intention
maintain strategic focus
work with high efficiency
But don’t just take my word for it…
Ultra-successful business people who have practiced mindfulness include:
- Oprah Winfrey
- Steve Jobs
- Russell Simmons
- Arianna Huffington
- Rupert Murdoch
- Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford
- Co-Founder of Bridgewater Associates, Ray Dalio
And top organizations who have instituted mindfulness programs include corporate giants like:
- General Mills
- Goldman Sachs
Hi, I’m Dr. Patricia Thompson – an award-winning corporate psychologist, executive coach, author, and President of the management consulting firm, Silver Lining Psychology.
Since 2004, I’ve helped thousands of senior leaders to enhance their work performance and gain greater fulfillment in their daily lives by applying psychological principles that radically impact their success.
But while it’s true that mindfulness is increasingly being talked about in business circles – and big enterprises are investing in programs that teach it – the majority of organizations I come across don’t have any systematic ways for leaders to learn about it in a way that would help with their busy professional lives.
Mindfulness retreats for busy professionals exist, but are often expensive or disruptive. And other online course creators don’t typically have the necessary boots-on-the-ground experience of working with leaders in a corporate environment.
That means they can’t deliver relevant examples, or speak in a language that makes sense to business professionals working in high-pressure situations.
In my work as an executive coach, I’ve witnessed the significant benefits of mindfulness on my clients for myself.
I’ve seen firsthand how it gives executives greater confidence and resilience, improves their interpersonal and communication skills, and helps them to behave with intention.
Not only that, but it also allows them to have greater control over their emotions and increases their productivity.
The best part?
The benefits trickle over into their personal lives and positively impact the relationships that are most important to them – ensuring their personal fulfillment and happiness.
“I’m a different, better person thanks to mindfulness. Thanks to Dr. Thompson, I meet my employees where they are and have become a much more empathetic leader who focuses more on their development.” – Healthcare Vice-President
Not everyone has the luxury of being able to work one-on-one with an executive coach.
That’s why I created The Executive Mindfulness Online Course – because I wanted to share the advantages of mindfulness on a larger scale.
This exclusive, virtual program will provide you with the information, the resources, and the step-by-step guidance you need to develop an effective mindfulness practice all of your own.
It contains the kind of expert advice I’ve shared with the likes of the Harvard Business Review, CNN, Fast Company, Time, Entrepreneur, the Huffington Post, Cosmo, Money Magazine, Thrive Global, and elsewhere – and it can all be yours, right now.
Let me ask you this…
Is your communication style is getting in the way of your success?
- Are you so driven and results-oriented that you move too quickly, and speak before you think?
- Are you impatient, or do people tell you that you could stand to be a better listener?
- Do your emotions interfere with your effectiveness?
Could you use more confidence?
- Do doubt and negative self-talk undermine your success?
- Do you have a hard time bouncing back when things don’t go your way?
- Do you have difficulty managing your emotions?
Are you stressed out, most of the time?
- Do you have a hard time staying focused and keeping up with all of your responsibilities?
- Do you wish you could be more present – at work and at home?
- Do you constantly feel like you’re on the brink of burnout?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of the above, you’re not the only one. And the good news is, you don’t have to struggle with any of that, anymore.
“Since developing a mindfulness practice with Patricia, I am a lot less likely to let others “push my buttons.” I am less irritable, and a whole lot more pleasant to be around.”
-Vice-President of Marketing
Take action and get started with The Executive Mindfulness Online Course today.
If you’re ready to completely transform the way you approach your work – in a way that positively impacts EVERY area of your life and makes you a better leader – then you don’t have to wait.
What is mindfulness anyway?
I’m glad you asked.
Mindfulness is the ability to remain in the present moment and maintain a moment-by-moment, non-judgmental awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and the surrounding environment.
You can consider it a form of brain training that strengthens your ability to pay attention, so that you can concentrate more easily and focus on the task at hand.
You’ll also find you’re better able to take a step back from situations to observe yourself: your thoughts, your emotions, and your physical reactions. As a result, you’ll act with intention, wisdom, and perspective – and avoid any knee-jerk reactions that could cause conflict or problems further down the line.
Why are so many leading companies investing in mindfulness programs for their employees?
According to a study by the American Psychological Association, 69% of employees report that work is a significant source of stress and 41% say they often feel tense during a typical work day.
In a Gallop survey, 70% of workers reported feeling “checked out” or “actively disengaged” at their jobs.
For those companies who care about their employees’ job satisfaction and performance, bringing mindfulness into the workplace is a total no brainer.
“When I started working with Patricia, I was burnt out and self-critical. I was afraid to take time for myself, because I thought I should be working all the time. By becoming more mindful, I’ve learned that by taking breaks and focusing on self-care, I actually become more productive and engaged, not less.”
– IT Manager

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE COURSE
LIFETIME INSTANT ACCESS
I know you’re busy. That’s why you’re here. It’s also why I designed this self-paced course with you and your needs in mind. The easily digestible lessons are available both in video and audio format so that you can watch or listen to them whenever it’s most convenient for you. There are no deadlines, so work at your own pace (something you probably don’t hear very often), and if you need to take a month off, the course will still be here, waiting for you to pick things back up again.
16 Guided Meditation Downloads
Mindfulness is called “a practice” for a reason – it takes commitment to build up your skills. Just as strengthening your muscles requires consistency, so too does developing your ability to be mindful. As a result, I’ve included 16 downloadable guided meditation recordings that you can use as part of your mindfulness practice.
The Executive Mindfulness Companion Workbook
To help you to put the course concepts into practice, you’ll receive a companion pdf workbook in which you’ll complete your assignments, write notes, reflect, and learn. As you work your way through, you’ll reinforce the material that’s covered in each lesson. The Companion Workbook is filled with additional information, exercises, and instructions designed to help you integrate mindfulness into your daily life.
The Executive Mindfulness Discussion Forum
As a former university instructor and frequent trainer of corporate clients, I know how valuable it can be to have direct access to your instructor. The course’s discussion forum acts as a home base from which I can answer any questions you might have and provide helpful leadership tips. The forum is also a great way to network with classmates who share your business concerns and challenges.
Bonus #1: My Book, The Consummate Leader
As the first bonus, you’ll receive a pdf copy of my book, The Consummate Leader: a Holistic Guide to Inspiring Growth in Others…and in Yourself.

In this presentation, I review the research on mindset, and provide actionable tips on how to cultivate a mindset that will help you to fulfill your potential. And, I show you how to create the sort of environment that will allow others to perform at their peaks.
Bonus # 3: Professional Development Tip Sheets
While mindfulness is a practice that can help you become a more effective leader, it’s not the only competency you need to perform at your peak. That’s why, as part of your registration, you’ll also receive access to my library of tip sheets to promote your professional development. These cover a wide range of topics that come up consistently when I’m coaching clients – such as time management, accountability, delegation, executive presence, strategic planning, and much more. Whether you’re creating a formal development plan or just want some ideas for honing your skills in a given area, these tip sheets will prove an invaluable resource.

Don’t Decide Now — Try the Executive Mindfulness Online Course Risk-Free
I have been working with executives and teaching for over 15 years. I am also the founder of Silver Lining Psychology, a corporate psychology and executive consulting firm, as well as a writer and frequent expert in the media. I have helped numerous people to apply mindfulness in their professional and personal lives, and have the success stories to prove it. That’s why I want to give you an opportunity to see the results first-hand without any risk. You won’t know the benefits until you try it.

And then, you decide whether to keep the program or not at the end of it. If you’re not satisfied with your results, simply email the Executive Mindfulness Course team via firstname.lastname@example.org and your entire investment will be instantly refunded. It’s that simple.
So get started now. You have nothing to lose, and a whole lot of clarity, growth, and success to gain.
Can you really learn mindfulness via an online course?
Yes! Developing a mindful approach to work requires time and practice. And, my course enables you to take the time you need to develop a sense of mindfulness at your own pace. A mindfulness workshop may well motivate you in the short term, but if it doesn’t deliver the kind of results that last, the value is lost. This online program provides you with the tools and support to develop an ongoing mindfulness habit that you’ll be able to sustain over the long haul. Plus, you’ll have the option to sign up for email reminders that will act as gentle nudges to make sure you are keeping up with the course despite distractions.
I’m afraid that mindfulness will make me lose my “edge.” Is this course for me?
Rest assured – that’s not the case. Although people think that pursuing goals at a consistent high intensity is the key to success, that’s actually a myth. Take an athlete, by way of an example. While their training is important, the resting or recharging that they do in between training is also integral for them to perform at their peak. Constant high intensity leads to burnout, and the ability to bounce back, recharge, and focus on issues in a calm manner leads to clarity, creativity, and perspective. That’s exactly what mindfulness helps you to do.
When does the course start and finish?
The course will have its official launch on January 1, 2017. However, if you enroll with our introductory rate, you will have instant access, and save money to boot! The course is self-paced by design, so you can complete it whenever is most convenient for you.
What does lifetime access mean?
Lifetime access means that once you enroll, you’ll have access to the course materials forever.
What if I’m not satisfied with the course?
I’ve helped countless professionals to apply mindfulness to their work over the years, and I’ve seen firsthand how it has radically transformed their lives – at work and at home. This course contains all of my very best tools, techniques, and know-how. I don’t hold anything back. That’s why I’m confident that, if you study this course from beginning to end and complete all the exercises, you’ll strengthen your leadership skills and enhance your effectiveness in the workplace. However, if you do go through the course, complete the homework, and are still unhappy with your results, then contact us at email@example.com within 14 days from your enrollment date explaining why you’re dissatisfied, and I’ll provide a full refund.
I’m a business leader who needs to enroll multiple people in the course, how do I do that?
