The ancient wisdom behind mindfulness combines with the latest research on neuroplasticity and thinking from leaders in the business world. Clearer thinking, the ability to make calm, considered decisions and freedom from feeling overwhelmed by a seemingly never-ending workload are just some of the benefits that a practice of mindfulness can bring to the workplace.
Forward-thinking people in business and institutions are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of mindfulness training. According to the psychologist Daniel Goleman, being mindful “is now the yardstick by which pioneering organisations and their leaders are being judged. Today’s leaders not only have to be emotionally intelligent, but also mindful.”
Mindfulness training supports the development of a more effective, productive, creative and peaceful workplace and dramatically reduces levels of stress in the work environment. Stress is believed to trigger 70% of visits to the doctor and 85% of serious illnesses. Thus, when you consider that stress in the workplace reduces productivity, increases management pressure, severely restricts workers’ creativity and interferes with job satisfaction, investing in mindfulness training could be one of the most cost effective decisions you make all year.
“Based on the 2,600 year-old tradition of Buddhist meditation, mindfulness is not new or New Age. What is new is bringing its potential to the offices and conference rooms of businesses and corporations.” Pamela Weiss, Founder of Appropriate Response 2012.
