As our work environments become increasingly fast-paced and stressful, how can we continue to thrive, rather than deplete at the workplace? Is there a way to increase employees’ resilience, motivation and job satisfaction, on the one hand, while also enhancing task performance and employee engagement? The answer may lie in teaching your team about mindfulness – gently noticing what is going on for us, in the present moment, without passing judgment.
Mindfulness seminars are aimed at innovative companies and organizations for whom promoting mental health at work is a key concern and who are interested in sustainable programmes for stress management and burnout prevention for their employees.
In a half-day workshops based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR developed by on Jon-Kabat Zinn, University of Massachusetts Medical School), your team will be learning:
- about the causes and effects of stress, as well as, mindfulness-based approaches to meet stress and change at work;
- how to use mindfulness to feel more calm and focused;
- to relate more mindfully and compassionately to yourself, co-workers and clients.
Extensive scientific research into mindfulness training consistently reveals its effectiveness in enhancing health and well-being. Some of these benefits include:
- Reductions in stress, anxiety, depression and exhaustion – and an increase in positive emotions, resilience and well-being
- A stronger immune system, helping you to fight off illness more effectively
- An increased capacity for focus, attention, learning, memory, creativity and concentration
- A greater ability to regulate emotions and to feel kind and compassionate towards ourselves and others
- Heightened self-confidence and assertiveness
The workshop is suitable for teams of 4–20 persons. Participants will receive audio files and handouts to continue practicing at home and/or at work.
