"Well-being and high performance can co-exist without compromise."
One drawback of being a top-level leader or an established entrepreneur is that it hides your challenges. Whilst you experience being stuck in a vicious cycle of distress in your inner world, people applaud you in the outer world. Often success comes at a big price – it has been traded for your mental health, relationships, and/or optimal performance. It is a paradox a lot of leaders live in. What got you to your level of success, won’t get you to the quality of life you're longing for: a life where your overall well-being and optimal performance as a leader co-exist without compromise.
Mind Avenue ™, founded by Michelle de Bruijn, is pioneering in the field of Executive Well-being with a unique method rooted in ancient wisdom, cutting-edge science, and personal brain-data measured and trained with well-being technology called neurofeedback.
What we offer
Highly personalized and tailor-made neurofeedback training to rewire the brain as the foundation. Executive coaching and regenerative retreats for lasting life and leadership transformation.
In a constantly changing world with high demands for leaders, Michelle firmly believes in a radical new approach to executive well-being and optimal performance. A recent study showed that 72% of entrepreneurs and 49% of CEOs self-reported struggling with mental health conditions.
Conventional leadership methods or mindfulness practices won’t endure the daily challenging episodes leaders have to face.
If you’ve tried other methods that failed, this might be for you!
Whether you’re looking for an executive coaching or a retreat program, the foundation of every program is a qEEG-created brain map, a visual topographic map that shows the electrical activity of your brain during an assessment that targets your well-being and performance goals.
Inspired by the quote of HH The Dalai Lama; "Do not try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are", Neuro-Buddhism was born. It's a secular approach to develop a mind like monk, sharp, clear and compassionate, in a high paced and demanding society.
