Today’s business success increasingly depends on your ability to get people to follow you as a leader, not because they have to, but because they want to. Participants in Omnia leadership development programmes are able to step out of their comfort zone, exceed personal limitations, and experience leadership first hand.
With extensive military experience, the Omnia Discovery team offers various leadership development experiences that will encourage students to step out of their comfort zone, by taking part in intensive, real-life situational challenges, where they will lead a team in difficult and challenging environments.
Omnia Discovery offers a modular leadership development course with a blend of in-class sessions and real situational leadership challenges based upon the methodologies used by leading western militaries for leadership development.

Mindfulness is becoming a mainstream corporate practice with potential benefits to both the individual worker and manager as well as to the organization collectively.
Mindfulness is also a great technique to enhance creativity, to reduce the reactivity of the reptilian brain (relentless mind), increase resilience, stimulate the neocortex, as well as improve emotional intelligence. Therefore, global companies such as Intel, 3M, SAP, McKinsey, Goldman Sachs and Google (“Innovation Time Off”) have already utilized Mindfulness training programs, and regularly encourage their employees to take time during work – to let their minds wander and to pursue and share personal passions.
Slowing down, taking a step back, and even napping and mind-wandering, interspersed with diligent focus, are all part of creative Mindfulness or Mindful Innovation. Creativity, that process that leads to innovation, is changing everything, including the way that people and organizations flourish. In a 2010 IBM study, CEOs ranked “creativity” as the most crucial leadership quality for the enterprise of the future. So, how do we become more creative? One way is to turn to the ancient principle of Mindfulness, helping us tap into our innate capacity to imagine, discover new ideas and innovate. So what is Mindfulness? Put simply, it’s a way of engaging with the present. However, you don’t have to sit in silent meditation or chant “om” to grow more Mindful. All you have to do is to pay attention. It’s that simple and that difficult. The art of paying attention, in a world of SMS, Emails, WhatsApp, Instagram, Netflix and Twitter, takes practice.
