SMART offers individuals a disciplined yet flexible focus to reframe their thinking with a more adaptive and pragmatic perspective that is conducive to calm temperament as well as passionate engagement. Such perspective helps enhance gratitude, focus, nurture greater compassion, and the result is greater emotional intelligence, which in turn fosters more rewarding relationships, better emotional regulation, and an enhanced ability to deal with adversity, complexity, and conflicts.
The solutions share application of these skills to daily life, both personal and professional. SMART has been tested in about thirty completed research studies at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere, with the results showing consistent and strong improvement in stress, anxiety, burnout, resilience, mindfulness, self-regulation, happiness, and positive health behaviors.
For most organizations, SMART is offered in two phases, Train and Sustain.
The train phase entails sharing the core insights and skills of the four-module program. For most groups, this training is offered in two one-hour sessions supplemented with collateral materials. In the sustain phase, participants integrate and deepen their practice, building towards creating a culture of resilience and wellbeing in the organization. The sustain phase is delivered leveraging teleconferences, emails, short videos, webinars, video conferences, books, and more. A mobile app to deliver sustain is in development.
We are happy to offer SMART workshops as well as Train-the-trainer courses at your location, to help you bring SMART to the entire enterprise.
In addition, Dr. Sood would be happy to present a keynote address on topics related to stress, resilience, wellbeing, engagement, performance, and mental health. Please contact us if you want to bring the power of resiliency to your group.
