Building a Mindfulness Practice at Work

Description: 

According to Harvard Research, 47% of the time we are mentally off task. How would performance change for you and your organization if you could improve on this? In this course you’ll explore the modern-day phenomenon of mindfulness—the mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment—and how it’s helping employees at organizations like Google, Accenture and IKEA increase job satisfaction, reduce anxiety levels, improve concentration and build healthier interpersonal relationships.

Documented research shows that mindfulness creates noticeable improvements in the following areas:

  • Patience and resilience
  • Concentration and focus
  • Stress management, helping you to remain calm under pressure
  • Communication skills, increasing the capacity for listening and empathy
  • Innovation and creativity
  • Clear thinking, due to heightened awareness and consciousness
