Mindfulness at work: an introduction
Mindfulness - non-judgemental present moment attention training - has been shown by a growing number of studies to have beneficial effects on health, productivity and team dynamics. Corporate mindfulness and meditation training is now used by many large companies such as Google, Apple and Virgin. Mindfulness at work helps people to be healthier, happier, smarter, more efficient, creative and resilient. The techniques provided on this one-day Mindfulness course can encourage new ways of working that increase engagement and reduce absenteeism, enable leaders to utilise human potential theories, leading staff through change in an uncertain environment, improve workplace productivity and resilience and provide coaching techniques using mindfulness. Not least, mindfulness will provide you with personal strategies to reduce stress, regain balance and improve your focus in everyday life.
