CONSCIOUS CALM - Mindfulness Workshop
ONE DAY Corporate Workplace Training
Business leaders today are being asked to perform and thrive in a global environment that moves and changes at an increasingly fast pace. To become more adaptable and flexible in this environment, leaders need to move beyond familiar or habitual ways of seeing the world and open up to new ways of listening, leading, responding, and innovating.
An optimal mindset is acquired by training the brain – building the “attention muscle” to expand awareness and increase focus. Just like professional athletes train their bodies for peak performance, business professionals and their teams can train their brains to perform at optimal levels. Developing an optimal mindset takes time, practice and commitment; it’s a new job skill learned like any other and is mastered in much the same way.
Studies of Mindfulness in a business context have shown that increases in mindfulness are associated with increased creativity and decreased burnout.
Conscious Calm (Mindfulness and Conscious Awareness) programs quietens mental chatter and lays the foundation for better decision-making and communication.
The practice of mindfullness can bring many benefits to your emotional and physical health, as well as to the relationships in your life. Mindfulness is an amazing tool for stress management and overall wellness because it can be used at virtually any time and can quickly bring lasting results.
Conscious Calm offers instruction in mindfulness for professional performance. We teach employees to cultivate and work from their mental “sweet spot” for calm, focused engagement on the job. Our curriculum includes education on basic neuroscience as well as experiential practices with a collection of clinically proven, practical techniques that produce real results in the workplace.
Clarity, efficiency and performance are dramatically improved by changing the way in which employees perceive and react to everyday stress stimuli. This leads to improved interpersonal communication, better task management, and a decreased sense of overwhelm. Employees are able to respond to the daily challenges of professional life with calm and focus instead of distraction and frustration.
Increase Profits and Productivity
Today’s high-pressured business environment – competitive challenges, lay-offs, long workdays, the competing demands of home and work life – are leading to employee burnout and rising health care costs. Optimal Mindset keeps your workforce on the job and well engaged, helping businesses increase profits and productivity while reducing the negative effects.The practice of programs such as the Conscious Calm program in the business world is increasingly moving from the fringe to the mainstream, and already features as a key part of a number of international management and organisation development programmes.
Conscious Calm enables good managers to become great leaders by developing clear focus, clear vision and authenticity.
