Overview

We'd all like to feel and be calm, purposeful and alert.  The pressures of work, adapting to change, dealing with conflict and other challenges can leave us with little time to think.  There's so much to do, and so many distractions.

Mindfulness is increasingly practiced in the workplace to help people enhance their ability to concentrate, feel calm and stay in control.

Mindfulness is simple to learn, quick to put into practice and potentially very powerful.  

It can help you:

  • make better decisions
  • focus and concentrate on the task in hand
  • tune in to other people more fully so you can become a better leader
  • become more self aware so you can understand the patterns in your feelings and behaviour 
  • reduce your stress and anxiety

What you'll learn

You'll learn: 

  • Why mindfulness has gone mainstream and why everyone from doctors to CEO's are talking about the benefits of it
  • What mindfulness is, what it isn't (it's not religious)
  • How even a few minutes a day can benefit you
  • How to regain a sense of calm and focus, allow you to make better decisions, and give you back your sense of control and wellbeing
  • How you can easily incorporate mindfulness techniques into your day in a way that saves you time (because you need another thing on that To Do list like a hole in the head!) 

Who is it for?

This is a really practical training course, intended for people who want to learn and practice mindfulness techniques.
