Mindfulness at Work

Scientifically backed mindfulness programs for organisations

Mindfulness programs help leaders and employees reflect effectively, focus sharply on the task at hand, master peak levels of stress, and recharge quickly. On an organizational level, mindfulness reduces sick days, increases trust in leadership, and boosts employee engagement. Mindfulness enables people to radically strengthen their ability to adapt quickly to evolving circumstances and ambiguous situations and to increase the speed with which they learn new things. It creates mental agility and helps people look inward to find answers. 

HOW MINDFULNESS WORKS

Mindfulness has been proven to contribute to our brain's neuroplasticity, by modifying activity and grey matter density in specific brain regions in ways that help us respond better to stressful situations. More specifically, it increases the activity and grey matter density in brain areas responsible for focus, memory, learning and the feeling of joy and reduces brain activity in areas that are responsible for stress reactions, anxiety and depression - such as the amygdala, hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex.

BENEFITS

Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to have positive benefits when applied in work settings:

  • Reduction of stress

  • Improvement in communication skills and working relationships

  • Improvement in dealing with difficult situations

  • Boost in creativity and productivity

  • Improved attention, focus and memory

  • Positive work environment and a greater sense of wellbeing

  • Improvement in emotional intelligence and resilience
