Mindfulness

Course Overview

Working at a fast pace with more and more demands of employee time inside and outside of work, increasingly people have turned to mindfulness to maintain their wellbeing. Looking after employees can protect businesses from absence through illness or when good people decide to leave through unhappiness. And generally a happy workplace performs better.

As employees, looking after ourselves and others is more important now than ever. We’ve lived through an extraordinary time with increased remote working becoming the norm. Being happy and confident with who we are is important and we’re more likely to reach out and work well with others if we’re content with ourselves.

In this programme we give learners techniques and skills to help them be the most self-aware and mindful version of themselves. In the second part we look at how mindfulness can help learners be resilient to difficult situations and work effectively with others. And finally, we look at what learners can do now to protect themselves in the longer term from stress and burnout.

Subject

Mindfulness means being present and content in the moment. Having the right mindset and using techniques to stay in control can help learners navigate challenging situations. Through greater understanding of themselves and awareness of the environment can equip learners to remain calm in the eye of a storm.

Mindfulness is often associated with Meditation. Although this isn’t a course on meditation the techniques and exercises we cover aim to achieve the same goals.
