Positively changing workplace culture.
We colour your water, make magic sandals and ensure you have skin in the game!
Colouring your water
Ask a fish about water and the fish is likely to say, “what water?”
Thinking is our water. Until we’re aware of what we’re thinking about we’ll continue to be be yanked around by our minds.
Mindful at Work colours your water to expose mind wandering and old habits of thinking.
Learning how to observe your thoughts offers a powerful new perspective.
Interrupting mind-wandering and taming unhelpful thinking is a known outcome of mindfulness training.
Making magic sandals
Thinking the problem is ‘out there’ is the problem!
Once upon a time a barefoot princess stepped on a thorn which hurt like anything. She immediately demanded her father the king should carpet the entire kingdom, so she’d never be hurt again!
The king freaked (carpeting kingdoms is quite expensive!). Then a wise person offered to make the princess a pair of sandals. Problem solved!
Mindful at Work shows people how to make their own sandals by building inner resilience.
Getting some skin in the game
Gandhi said “be the change you wish to see in the world” because real change starts with you!
You to decide what you want to work on. That might be a specific intention, or growing a leadership quality.
You might want to become more courageous, to communicate better, be more present, authentic, calm, resilient, innovative, or an inspiring?!
Having some skin in the game takes things up a notch. We’re not just teaching you mindfulness, we’re making a stand for lasting change.
We believe in being better humans…
- Workplace mindfulness is about changing the way people work and growing a positive workplace culture.
- Whether you’re leading an organisation, making a sale, giving a presentation, or simply answering the phone, you’re at your best when you’re relaxed, clear-headed and feeling open-hearted. Mindfulness is about cultivating and maintaining this state.
- It takes time and consistent practice to experience the benefits of mindfulness. People are more likely to stay with it when they experience the benefits for themselves and have expert support.
- One of the biggest benefits of mindfulness is seeing yourself clearly. With more self-awareness comes choice. You get to choose how you’ll show up.
- Smart organisations often train their leaders in mindfulness first, because leaders have the most impact on engagement.
- Today’s work environments are complex and constantly changing. Humans are not designed to think well when managing uncertainty. Stress powers off the mind’s executive functions and increases the suffering associated with mind wandering. Mindfulness builds resilience by down-regulating the stress response and interrupting mindless reactions.
- Awareness of your intention trumps all other communication skills. Mindfully deciding to listen generously, be open and curious and less critical and judgmental, exponentially improves relationships.
- Doing business mindfully means operating consciously and ethically while boosting the bottom line.
- Everyone wants to feel they’re making progress at work. Teams that function collaboratively harness their combined energy and do a better job.
- Wishing and wanting to be more mindful doesn’t change anything. People need new tools to manage from the inside-out, otherwise they’re ruled by their habits. Nothing interrupts unhelpful behaviours better than mindful awareness.
- When people are mindful at work they’re present and fully engaged, happier and more productive. They’re also more fun to be around.
- Reflecting on what you did is ‘nice’ but without in-the-moment-awareness, we’re slaves to our unconscious mind and old behaviours take over.
- A solution-focused mindset isn’t something you have, or you don’t have; you train it by deliberately practising mindfulness.
- Businesses that thrive in the future will encourage their people to innovate, make mistakes and to think creatively. Mindfulness provides people with groundwork to be innovative by accessing a clear, open and flexible mindset.
- People who can see how their values and behaviours align with those of the business, are likely to be more engaged in promoting a healthy workplace culture.
