Mindfulness Training

True North Development training is the best of both worlds.  

The True North curriculum has been carefully crafted to weave mindfulness techniques into already existing leadership development practices and theories that have been proven to be successful.  The result is comprehensive programs that combine the best of both worlds and enable participants to get clear on what mindful leading, living, and working really look like.

Shelley’s clients include organizations such as:
Dell, Lake Austin Spa Resort, The University of Texas at Austin Center for Professional Education, HEC Business School, NYU, Amgen and UBM
