In tough economic times, many organisations are looking for new ways to deliver better products and services to customers while simultaneously reducing costs. Carrying on as normal is not isn’t an option. Organisations are looking for sustainable ways to be more innovative and maintain resilience in the face of ongoing change, reducing stress and improving employee resilience and effectiveness. For these reasons, more and more organisations are offering staff training in mindfulness, but what is mindfulness, and how could it help your organisation? This one day course will provide you with the answers. In the morning you will gain a basic experiential and theoretical grounding in what mindfulness is, its origins and evolution, and have the opportunity to try it for yourself. You will gain practical insights into how to manage yourself better and maintain sustained attention for longer. In the afternoon you will have an opportunity to evaluate mindfulness potential impact on your organisation by considering the challenges your organisation is facing and evaluating how mindfulness might be able to assist by exploring the evidence base for mindfulness at work.
