RESEARCH SHOWS that as many as 25% of employees in some countries have been diagnosed with depression. Many of these report having too many competing priorities and not knowing how to cope, plus increasing complexity and anxiety about the future.
A great number of the problems that we as consultants are presented with by our corporate clients can be dealt with through the application of mindfulness in the workplace. This applies not only to anxiety and depression, but also to performance related issues. For example, one group of people who benefit greatly are project managers! They learn to manage their attention so that they only focus on what they can control.
In fact, elements from this program are nearly always among the solutions we provide. After all, as we said on the Home page, the key to performance in a world of complexity is knowing how to simplify!
Mindfulness in the workplace enhances the impact of other interventions and programs.
In other words, mindfulness is not just about being more present while eating and taking a break from your phone. In fact, it’s not just about reducing stress either. Mindfulness, properly applied and taken to its logical conclusion, is a powerful tool for improving performance in all areas of life and work. It also helps to improve one’s experience of life and work. That’s why we say that mindfulness provides the “salt in the mix”—it enhances the impact of other interventions and programs.
The Practical Mindfulness program is popular and respected in the workplace among its corporate clients. It can be offered live and in-person, or online, either tailored as a once-off event or in its native format as a series of modules.
