The challenges we face at work are unprecedented and multiplying. They include economic hurdles; unprecedented volatility in our external environments; tougher performance measurements; the demand for immediate, round-the-clock responsiveness; and the constant need to do more with less.
These challenges are not insurmountable. But sometimes we need a circuit breaker. Which is exactly what this program delivers! Led by internationally best-selling author and mindfulness coach David Michie, you will be introduced to a full range of mindfulness tools.
Just as physical training delivers quantifiable performance improvements, neuro-scientific research shows that mindfulness training can deliver dramatically enhanced working capabilities. These include:
- Improved capacity to manage stress effectively
- Greater emotional resilience
- Enhanced clarity of thinking, objectivity and perspective;
- Improved executive functioning of the brain enabling greater innovation and the ability to ‘join the dots’;
- Enriched empathy and ability to engage more effectively with others;
- The building of more resonant, focused teams;
- Ultimately, a more coherent sense of meaning and purpose in what we do.
From an organisational perspective, mindfulness programs have been shown to help improve attendance rates and staff retention, enhance job performance, as well as unleash greater creativity.
Most of us are hired not for our good looks, but for our minds. Use this opportunity to start optimising the performance of your most important asset!
