If you are unsure of what mindfulness is and how could it help your organisation, ,why not let us introduce the benefits to you?
Mindfulness can help you and your team by bringing awareness to self-regulation, protect against stress and enhance effective decision-making capabilities. Mindfulness is the art of cultivating the ability to be in control of your mind instead of your mind being in control of you. Supported by scientific research, mindfulness has been successfully implemented into businesses across the globe.
Mindfulness is a state in which you are highly aware and focused on the reality of the present moment, accepting and acknowledging it, without getting caught up in thoughts or emotional reactions to the situation.
Research conducted over the last 40 years demonstrates the benefits that can be gained from mindfulness training. Mindfulness practice reduces the risk of burnout, increasing resilience and overall well-being. It also has a beneficial impact on the brain, decreasing grey matter in the amygdala (the brains fear centre) and increasing grey matter in areas including the hippocampus (responsible for learning and memory) and pre-frontal cortex (responsible for executive functioning). In recent years research has demonstrated how mindfulness can improve many aspects of workplace productivity, improve working relationships and improve health and well-being.
Mindfulness can provide business benefits including:

In addition to learning about the science underpinning why mindfulness works, participants get to experience mindfulness practices for themselves, allowing the experiential learning and its value for peak workplace performance. We would aim to include, where relevant, any ongoing culture change, leadership or L&D training that participants are currently undergoing, so that it feels immediately relevant and applicable to them.
