An initiative for mindfulness & agility in the technology age

“Do not forget to stay human among all the machines”.
– Lilian Güntsche-Hilgendag, Founder of THE DIGNIFIED SELF® 

THE DIGNIFIED SELF® is a central contact point for knowledge transfer on the topics of mindfulness and agility. By applying our own training concept MINDFUL AGILITY®, relevant New Work skills to promote resilience and adaptability are taught in seminars, workshops, lectures and keynotes. THE DIGNIFIED SELF® (short: TDS) is a movement for more humanity in a digitally dominated world and a source of inspiration and creativity in an era of robots.

We support people and companies in moving from a top-heavy (MIND FULL), often unfocused “self” to a conscious (MINDFUL) and value-oriented “DIGNIFIED SELF”. In times of increasing information and constant change, THE DIGNIFIED SELF® is a source of inspiration for mindfulness methodologies combined with agile principles.

MINDFUL AGILITY - Our training approach

Hit your goal with mindfulness & agility

Two of the most important skills in times of constant change are adaptability – keyword: agility – and the ability to not “get lost” in the sensory overload of constantly new information – keyword: focus.

The MINDFUL AGILITY training approach provides knowledge to strengthen these two skills. To master the digital transformation from a people perspective, individuals and teams require emotional stability and inner peace, which is cultivated by mindfulness methodologies.

The Training approach “MINDFUL AGILITY” is built to strengthen your mindset with mindfulness and agility.
