In 2003, Tessa began in the professional speaking industry, and was privileged to work with famous keynote speakers and celebrities such as Dr. Oz, Geena Davis, Sir Ken Robinson and Suze Orman. Today, she speaks, trains and consults professionally, coaching contributors to become leaders, and helping leaders to become steadfast, calming influencers in stressful corporate environments.

In her programs, speaker Tessa Todd Morgan leads people to recognize the invisible barriers that exist between them and their goals, and helps them to develop strategies for achieving those goals by recognizing and neutralizing various forms of stress using personal growth, optimism and mindfulness techniques.

Shortly thereafter, Tessa received her accreditation in Emotional Intelligence for Personal Leadership from the Institute for Health and Human Potential.

After being a yoga instructor for years and not always loving the intimidation that can come for others and some of the teachings around it, Tessa now incorporates her expertise by leading corporate audiences in learning techniques that can be used to increase productivity and reduce stress in office environments using what she calls mindful movement.

How Mindfulness Can Impact Your Business

Everywhere I look I feel like I see mindfulness becoming more popular. And, it makes me happy lately to see magazines devoting entire issues to one of the topics I love speaking about.

But, what does it even mean to be mindful in business? And, why does it matter?

Let’s start with what mindfulness is in the first place. Here’s what I believe…

 

Mindfulness is a transmission that you send indicating that you are in a receptive state– being present, making decisions with clarity, and acting on those decisions.
You turn this transmission on by being…
– Aware and in control of your current mood.
– Observant of your surroundings.
– Attuned to the presence of other people, and the power you hold to affect their moment, day, or life.

So, how can you be mindful in the workplace?

Scheduling Management – By being realistic with what you can do in one day and making adjustments accordingly. Making sure you have “focus time” scheduled for the important tasks and time with no interruptions on things that must get done. Turning off email and putting away your cell phone as much as you can to be present on the task at hand. Figure out what time of day you are most productive and focus on the top priorities during those hours.

Stress Management – Notice when you are stressed. Notice when you are not taking care of yourself. Notice when you not even breathing anymore. Notice when you are overeating or overthinking or can’t think straight. Notice when you are so overworked that you can’t get anything done anymore. TAKE A BREAK! We think we don’t have time, but that’s not true. It can be as simple as taking a quick 2-minute break to do some stretching or breathing exercises. Something to get up and moving and take our minds off of what we are working on for a few minutes so that when we come back we are more productive and get more accomplished than had we not left the situation. Plus, a big deep breath tells your brain that everything is OK, so I highly recommend taking a few of them! Look up, give yourself a treat with taking a moment for you and notice what is around you. Step outside for a quick breath of fresh air, look at the pretty trees even if they are in a parking lot and live life for a moment by taking your surroundings in versus just going through the motions.

Self-Management – Pretend you’re an outsider looking in…what would you see? How do you impact the people around you? Are you impatient and cranky or compassionate and approachable? If you do more of steps 1 and 2 you may find yourself being in a better mood, which could encourage others to join you.

And, why does it matter?

– You’ll be more productive
– You will feel better physically and mentally
– You will find more joy in your life

Happy people make happy business people. Plus, if you take the steps to take care of you first, others will benefit greatly. Bonus for those around you and the people you serve! Mindfulness is a journey and it may need some reminding every single day. That’s when we can use our technology as a productive tool by putting reminders in our calendar or phone (extra credit if you put them in right now!).

If we aren’t paying attention to what we are doing in the first place, then we might as well not even be here, right!?

How can you start making being here count? Mindfulness.

Interview with Tessa Todd Morgan

What types of unique experiences have you had as a result of your profession?

I’ve been in this industry since 2003 and prior to becoming a speaker I booked speakers and celebrities to speak at events. I had some fun experiences from dinner with Mick Fleetwood to giving Dr. Oz a ride to his hotel after an event once. But, most importantly, being in this industry has taught me what people need having the opportunity to sit in audiences so many times in the past prior to starting speaking myself.

With the stresses of modern life becoming more apparent, how important is Mindfulness in a daily routine?

It is crucial. Especially when it comes to creativity and productivity. We are so distracted with all the things coming at us all day long it’s a wonder we get anything done. It’s also amazing that we are still able to communicate with one another. If we are not being mindful, our lives are just passing by without meaning and our relationships can suffer greatly when we are not fully present with one another.

Why do clients typically hire you to speak?

When they are looking for stress relief, mindfulness or emotional intelligence mostly. I also have some groups that are starting to realize how important one’s own personal growth plays into the workplace and happy employees make good workers. So, I’ve got people that enjoy bringing in my personal development topic as well and I love having the opportunity to speak on that topic!

Is there a misconception about Yoga that you commonly encounter?

That it’s not for everyone. People are afraid the are not flexible enough to do yoga, young enough, fit enough or that they can’t sit still long enough. Isn’t that the reason to do it in the first place!?! Ha! ANYONE can do yoga! I’ve taught anyone from 5 years of age to 87, a woman with a rod in her spine, another with so many injuries and previous surgeries we have to modify most of the poses and a woman with ALS that is paralyzed in her feet, so we do it on her knees. ANYONE can do yoga, even if it was just the breathing part of it!

Do you have a favorite experience from your speaking career?

I had the privilege of getting to speak to a group of people from Tobii Dynavox that help people with ALS communicate using their devices. It was so humbling to try to help the people that help so many others and also get to spend time with such incredible people.

What 3 things would you recommend to do to set yourself on a more stress free path?

1) BREATHE more consciously and meditation works wonders being the #1 thing to relieve anxiety 2) focus on one thing at a time with most important tasks being first, set aside all of the distractions 3) practice being mindful in as many things as you can throughout the day – when eating, chew slowly and taste food – when hanging with friends and family, be present and put away the worries about what can wait till the next time you sit down to work – when working, focus on work and set the personal things aside until you are finished.
