The fast paced and “do more with less” environment of today’s workplace can be very challenging for individuals and teams, raising stress levels and absenteeism while lowering morale and productivity. However, there are practical tools that can help you improve your resiliency in the face of these challenges. The practice of mindfulness – centering your attention in the present – has been around for thousands of years. A growing body of research is demonstrating it can have a powerful impact on how you think, feel, act, relate, perform, and collaborate at work. On an individual level, mindfulness practice helps you to control your emotions – anger, frustration, fear – so you can be inquiring, thoughtful, logical, rational and strategic, and focus on the work that needs done, rather than on the situations that may distract you from your priorities. This workshop, facilitated by a long-term workplace mindfulness practitioner, will show you how to integrate mindfulness with emotional intelligence and organizational behaviour theories and tools, so you can immediately begin to enhance your own well-being and improve your relationships and effectiveness at work.
