Mindfulness matters. The ability to be present and mindful — to stay focused intentionally without passing judgment are important skills. Businesses with mindful individuals and teams are better equipped to compete in today’s ever-changing environment. Mindfulness is an effective tool, backed by science, that can be applied to any habit in our life to improve our focus, confidence, productivity, resilience, and how we handle stress, all leading to greater well-being. We can’t usually control the stress that comes our way, but we can control how we respond to it. We just need the right tools.
Most of us spend the majority of our day working or thinking about work. Often, our jobs can feel like an unruly journey – sometimes exhilarating, other times discouraging, creatively fulfilling, or tragically toxic. But is it the job that is distressing or is it the mind that we bring to the task? Participants will learn how mindfulness can transform the hassles, conflicts, and anxieties of the workplace into valuable opportunities for personal and professional growth. You will learn how mindfulness can help us develop honesty, agility, openness, courage, maturity, respect, and authenticity – characteristics that allow us to thrive in the workplace.
