Mindfulness is no longer ‘suspicious hippy stuff’. It has become a vital cog in the organisational wheel of some of the world’s biggest businesses and organisations and more and more are turning to mindfulness in a (successful) bid for across the board efficiencies, productivity and profitability.
Today’s working environment coupled with political and economic uncertainty puts a huge amount of stress on businesses and organisations and it doesn’t take long for that stress to trickle down to the workforce.
Put very simply, mindfulness is ‘the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something’ and our Introduction to Mindfulness blog is a great place to start to understand what it is but how can it help your business or organisation?
How Will Mindfulness Help You?
At Vital Minds Business Training, we understand that encouraging your staff to slow down and focus their minds on the present can seem at odds with the lightening-fast paced environment we find ourselves in but it has become more important than ever to recharge batteries and clear the mind of clutter.
Our mindfulness courses and workshops take delegates through a series of guided meditation techniques that direct focus onto the task at hand, in turn improving interactions and decisions. The net result is a more engaged, reflective workforce driven to work not necessarily harder, but certainly smarter.
- A far greater ability for clarity of thought
- More informed, intelligent decision-making skills
- Improved memory and concentration skills
- Enhanced wellbeing and mental health
- Decreased inter-staff confrontation and conflict
- Clearer communication between employees, teams and hierarchy
- Reduced staff attrition and absenteeism rates
- Increased loyalty
Teams that are mindful are more productive, more creative and better equipped to grow, flourish and survive and individuals who can control their internal stress triggers are more content and more focused.
The world’s biggest businesses are turning to mindfulness, now it’s your turn.
