What They Said:

“At HSF we are fortunate to have introduced the Potential Project mindfulness program to our firm in 2014. The training itself was a fantastic way to bring teams together in a supportive and safe environment to focus on building skills such as focus and prioritising, which in my view are fundamental to high performance in our global law firm environment. The continued use of mindfulness is proving critical for our people to not just manage in our fast world of increasing client and internal demands, but to grow and thrive. It helps achieve the mental space to enable the high level thinking our clients expect us to bring to help solve their unique challenges.”
Sue Gilchrist, Partner, HSF

“The Corporate Based Mindfulness Training has had a profound effect on me. My team says that I have become more serene, and I notice how quickly I feel stressed if I don’t do my daily practice. I have also noticed a marked difference in clarity of thought and feel much calmer.”
Nicole Lacy, Special Counsel, HSF
