Mindfulness at Work

Bringing Well-Being, Creativity and Performance Back to Work and Turning a Workforce into an Amazing Team

For the past decade, we have been bombarded by technology and information, which have sped up the pace of living. There are more demands on our time than ever before. More things to do, more options, more decisions to be made which make us more overwhelmed and frustrated, causing us to worry and feel confused. Even at work, we are often multitasking and dealing with stressful situations, thus stopping our productivity and creativity Could you imagine being at work and truly feeling fully connected to yourself, your colleagues, and your task?

Can you picture yourself being mindful of the present moment and performing well under stress while still connected to the source of the creativity, solutions, and performance? This is possible when we learn to establish the right relationship with our own thoughts, emotions, and reactions to stressful situations and learn how to use our brain and mind in a more effective way. Integrating Mindfulness at the workplace is having a new resource for your ideas, which brings out the genius within us and puts it at work for the benefit of all.

A Mindful Approach to Work and Managing Stress:

Everyone experiences stressful days at work, but how we respond to stress makes a significant difference in work performance, the quality of our interactions, and how we feel both physically and mentally. The Mindfulness in the Workplace program trains participants to recognize stress, as well as the sources of stress. It also teaches the difference between reaction and response, and shows how a steady mindfulness practice can help individuals to respond to work and life situations in a calm, clear, and thoughtful manner.

Mindful Leaders: Leading with Compassion and Insight

Mindfulness enables leaders to become more empathetic, resilient, and effective by managing their own state of mind and reactive patterns. As a result, these leaders build and manage the better business model that is the result of clear vision and mission. Integrating qualities such as awareness, equanimity and self-observation, which are the results of practicing Mindfulness, equips leaders with the skills needed to focus on complex challenges with clarity, creativity, and a NEW perspective. Great leaders are trusted by people around them and are effective with their action. They have a high level of care and concern for their associates and take an active interest in the well-being and development of themselves, as well as the group as a whole.

By taking the Mindful Leadership in Workplace program, individuals learn to align themselves with their values and priorities and develop a keener focus and enhanced creativity, in order to live the life they envision at work and in their personal life. They learn skills such as Mindful Listening and Mindful Speaking to improve Mindful Communication. This is the key to any successful relationship instead of pretending.

Our leadership program is available as a one-hour introductory session or customization to lengths up to a half or a full day. The program can be delivered on a one-to-one basis or to groups.
