Companies & Organisations
Your people are your most valuable resources. By looking after their well-being and development, you not only create a more enjoyable working environment, but also a more creative one.
Mindfulness has been proven to not only help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, but also to improve attention and awareness. As a result, people tend to become less reactive and more considered in their responses, which can be particularly valuable for interpersonal relationships and decision-making.
People who have a broader awareness yet more focussed attention are likely to bring significant advantages to your organisation, whilst potentially improving their job satisfaction, reducing sick-days, and creating a more enjoyable workplace.
Is mindfulness suitable for my organisation?
If you have employees or work as part of a team, then mindfulness could help.
It has been been found to have a positive impact in a diverse range of settings including Companies, Charities, Non-Profits, Hospitals, Universities, Sports Academies, Schools, Prisons, Military, and Government.
Is mindfulness suitable for the Senior Management team?
Mindfulness is particularly valuable for any high-pressured roles.
The well-being and development of the Senior Management Team is often sorely neglected in many organisations, which is ironic given their role in making the most far-reaching strategic decisions.
These roles often carry high-responsibility and therefore high-pressure to perform or meet expectations, within an increasingly complex and challenging world.
When mindfulness is adopted by the Senior Management Team, it could be transformative in terms of improved collaboration,
co-creation of shared values, and more insightful strategic decision-making.
This attitude and approach may inevitably trickle-down throughout the organisation.
Where's the evidence?
The following articles provide good evidence, supporting the value of mindfulness in the workplace:
Do you offer in-house training?
Yes, we can discuss options for in-house training, such as one-off introductory sessions or shorter courses, all customised to your needs.
How many people are in a training group?
For the standard 9-week MBCT course, the maximum number in is usually capped around 15 people. We can discuss options for introductory sessions or shorter courses for more people, all customised to your needs.
Do we need to provide any special equipment for the course?
We just need a reasonably quiet room with chairs, usually arranged in a circle, depending on the size of the group.
What happens at the end of the course?
As we come to the end of the course, we can discuss options to support continued practice, including the possibility of offering workplace drop-in meditation sessions.
If you feel mindfulness may be of value to you, your team, group, community, or organisation, please do get in touch to discuss further.
