A win-win situation – how rare is that!
Mindfulness can improve your business through a personal approach that is unique to every employee…
I am interested in working with every single employee in your organisation. They all can add value to your business, otherwise why are you employing them?
Mindfulness can reduce absenteeism, improve productivity, reduce health and safety incidents – all statistical outcomes.
What interests me is the personal impact it can have on every individual who is prepared to explore it; it is a universal tool for personal development.
All of us have hopes, aspirations, challenges and fears – we are all human. We may see stratification by job title, role or salary, but we all work for the same organisation.
By investing in Mindfulness, every employee who is prepared to explore it, from the cleaner to the CEO, can be enriched by it. Enhanced communication skills, better relationships and increased empathetic awareness all lead to happier and healthier employees. This makes a more functional and creative company – a double win!
What does the Business Service offer?
Helping you to see what needs to change
Mindfulness can shine a light on habits, routines, pre-conceptions and moods. Imagine an employee starts their day, every day with these four dimensions fixed. It is likely their day and their contribution to the workplace will be roughly the same regardless of how much training or support is put in place. Mindfulness can provide a different approach, a very personal one and therefore a very powerful one.
Meeting the specific needs of your workplace.
There will be a reason that you have investigated Mindfulness, some way that you want your workplace to change. Discussion is a starting point, but I will also need to see what is happening in your business. By meeting the employees and seeing what it is that they do, and most importantly, how they do it, I can then begin to formulate a relevant programme. Each business is unique and each programme I create is tailor-made.
Join Google, Apple, Intel and other leading companies using Mindfulness
Mindfulness programmes have been used in many successful businesses since as early as 2006. Progressive companies recognise the value of investing in their employees, not just in terms of qualifications, but also in them as people.
Meeting Health & Safety Executive advice in reducing work related stress
Mindfulness supports 5 of the 6 Management Standards that are in place to reduce the 11 million days lost each year in the UK to stress. This is a legal requirement and most organisations have a H&S budget. http://www.hse.gov.uk/stress/standards/index.htm
This clip sets out the main benefits for both employees and companies who invest their time in Mindfulness.
Such companies include Google, Nike, General Mills, Ford and Apple who have been reaping the benefits for years.
Thank you to The Mindfulness Network for sharing this clip on YouTube so we can all access it.
I will listen, I will look and I will learn how Mindfulness can best support your workplace.
Initially, we can talk through your vision for how you would like to see your workplace change. The next step will be for me to explore with employees how they go about their work. Wherever possible, I would like to work alongside them or shadow them so I have a felt sense of their experience.
I will formulate some suggestions for the content of the course and discuss how this meets your intentions. Typically, this will centre around exposing unhelpful behaviours and habits. It will also focus on building new capacities such as self-compassion, empathetic awareness and revitalising communication between employees. We can also discuss ways of measuring outcomes, so you know if Mindfulness is having the effect you envisaged.
Finally we will also look at post-programme support so benefits become embedded and don’t stop when the course stops.
