CSL Triage MEQ® Leadership is a programme of learning that has been specially designed for the Civil Service to teach Leadership using the principles of Mindfulness (M) and Emotional Intelligence (EQ). This programme reconnects participants' often forgotten skills, personal power and resilience with the confidence to act.
Throughout the programme, participants are taken on a journey that helps each understand their emotional responses and builds strength and an understanding of their own leadership style so they can apply it immediately.
What does the Programme Teach?
CSL MEQ® Leadership shows participants how to discover & develop the leader inside themselves, make meditation a part of their everyday lives and develop tools that can be used in any scenario to remain calm, focused, productive and emotionally stable.
Participants are coached with weekly direct contact modules and encouraged with daily updates via a 'Buddy Group'.
Right from the start the group framework and the sharing of personal intuitive experience allows learning and development to come from all sides.
The programme begins with an Orientation Questionnaire sent by email two weeks before the first contact session and ends with a Closing Questionnaire & certification. The questionnaires enable collation of before and after metrics.

"I would recommend this training...
“I had a half day session with AJ Bicât at work with group of colleagues. He helped me to understand this skill could be gradually developed by using daily meditational practice by spending a very reasonable amount of time on it. I would recommend this training as you will be getting tailor-made suggestions/practices based on your daily routine which will make it easier for you to invest on your well-being and peace.”

"...helped me become more focused and in control.
"AJ Bicât has an instantly calming influence. In the 2 hours we spent together I felt more relaxed and better prepared to approach my working day. With all the distractions that come. The practices he taught have helped me become more focused and in control. It’s amazing what can be achieved in such a short space of time."

"...especially interesting for those focused on authentic and values based leadership.
"I attended the mindfulness for leaders course. The content was valuable for my personal leadership, it was also aligned to driving engagement in teams and would be especially interesting for organisations and leaders that are focused on ‘authentic’ and values based leadership. AJ’s style is enjoyable, he clearly walks the talk."
