Mindfulness at Work

Helping People and Companies Thrive

2bpresent uses the latest research from the fields of Neuroscience and Psychology, combined with Mindful Awareness practices to teach people the skills they need to thrive at work and in life.

2bpresent's Mindfulness at Work Program:

  1. Enhances Performance at Work through Heightened Emotional Intelligence
  2. Cultivates Outstanding Leadership Skills
  3. Creates a Corporate Culture of Cooperation, Innovation & Resilience
  4. Increases Happiness and Health of the Individual and the Organization

Mindfulness Training is the foundation of building Emotional Intelligence. The latest research shows that mindfulness training helps individuals increase their ability to manage stress, to improve focus, to manage difficult emotions and to resolve challenging situations.

As Kate Pickert wrote in the February 2014 Time magazine cover story, The Mindful Revolution, “most leaders…feel besieged by long work hours and near constant connectivity. For these people, there seems to be no time to zero in on what’s important or plan ahead.” Mindfulness training can help leaders slow down, focus, skillfully solve problems and make better decisions.

Mindfulness Benefits Individuals: In our world of hyper-connectivity constantly pulling our attention and focus in many different directions, we need to learn to:

  • Slow down in order to concentrate on what is important;
  • Focus our attention and energy; and
  • Access our creativity and innovation to meet the demands of an ever-changing world.

In order to access our greatest potential to meet these demands, we must first learn to

  • Raise our self-awareness and understand our emotional responses;
  • Create a greater sense of clarity and calm; and
  • Connect to our  purpose and goals.


Mindfulness Benefits Organizations: Mindfulness training helps

  • Employees and business leaders develop a greater sense of interconnectedness, cooperation and compassion;
  • Companies create a positive corporate culture of cooperation, innovation and resilience; and
  • Improve the overall health of the organization and its individuals

2bpresent's Mindfulness at Work gives organizations the tools to build a more effective work environment with a greater sense of productivity, efficiency and the capacity for intelligent decision-making and skillful leadership.

About the Instructor:

She then earned her law degree from New York University School of Law. Cheryl worked as an attorney for several years in Manhattan practicing corporate litigation, white-collar crime and public interest law. She has had many roles in her life, but her most challenging and rewarding job yet — mother of three children.  The culmination of her life experiences in the corporate world and as a busy parent led her to explore a personal yoga and meditation practice. The life-changing effect of these practices and her desire to share the amazing teachings of leaders in the field of meditation and mindfulness, inspired her to co-create 2bpresent.  Cheryl has studied meditation and mindfulness under the guidance of many leaders in the field.  She is trained in Learning to BREATHE and Mindful Schools Curriculum Training.   She has completed her Level I and Level II Meditation Teacher Training from Om Yoga.   Cheryl has studied MBSR and Buddhist Psychology, as well as Neuroscience and Positive Psychology. She has also participated in Search Inside Yourself, Google’s Mindfulness-Based Leadership training. Cheryl is a motivational speaker, and teaches mindfulness and meditation privately to children, teens and adults, as well as to businesses and organizations.  She has created and taught programs in and around New York to train executives, teachers and students in stress reduction techniques and mindfulness tools to help them thrive.  It has been through her daily practice of yoga, meditation and mindfulness that she recognized that it is the journey itself, and not the destination, that matters most.  She is thrilled to be taking this journey 2bpresent and sharing it with you.


What people are saying about 2bpresent Programs:

“Every now and then you come across a class or a person who helps you to be a better person. Cheryl offers just that. I am a better person because of all the things that I have learned- I am a better spouse, a better mother, a better friend, a better co-worker, and actually even more compassionate with myself. And what’s the best part? That I got all this by simply learning how to slow down and calm down. I will be forever grateful! Taking the beginning meditation class is the single most important thing I have done for myself in the last decade. I can honestly say that my family and I are all happier because of my taking this one step to learn how to be calmer and more mindful.” – Psychologist, participant in Real Happiness and Mindful Living

“Cheryl’s class taught me not only how to meditate, but how to incorporate mindfulness into everything that I do. Cheryl is extremely knowledgeable about the practice of mindfulness and has a teaching style that is very easy to understand and accessible. It was a truly life changing experience. I can’t wait for my next class!” – MBA, participant in Mindful Living

The tools and techniques she showed the classes were fun and easy to use and the discussion really brought everything down to a real level that can be applied.
