Healthy Organisations– a calm focussed response to stress through mindfulness.
Mindfulness is a positive, practical, scientifically proven practice. We know from an increasing body of neuroscience research that the practice of mindfulness lessens an individual’s stress and anxiety, while strengthening their capacity focus, resilience, confidence and compassion. Recent research on the impact of mindfulness on teams and organisations also finds that ‘injecting a corporate culture where mindfulness becomes a shared practise at work that permeates processes and interactions between teams results in the whole organisation becoming more effective and sustainable.( Case Western Reserve University 2016). The converging evidence is compelling so that the corporate world now embraces mindfulness as ‘a way to keep our brains healthy, to support self regulation and effective decision making capabilities, and to protect ourselves from toxic stress‘ ( Harvard Business Review Jan 2015).
The route to increased workplace wellbeing, health and happiness can be supported by a variety of mindfulness based interventions, each tailored to meet the specific need.
- Wellbeing audits,
- Healthy workplace strategies,
- Resilience talks, and trainings
- Employment Assistance Programmes ( EAP) – One to one evidence based Mindfulness Based Interventions to support individuals experiencing stress and overwhelm
- Mindful Leadership workshops
- Mindfulness at Work training
- Mindfulness retreats.
