Mindfulness at Work

Mindfulness at Work's MIN programme is designed to give focused lessons in Mindfulness and consists of 4 x 45 minute sessions which can be taken on a weekly basis or flexibly over a longer or shorter period of time. These sessions are held in the workplace at any time of day. Individuals normally attend once a week and practice the techniques daily for 10 minutes. By the end of the course, the participants will have a good working knowledge of effective techniques that can give them a competitive edge and enhanced wellbeing. It has been shown in over 30 years of studies that Mindfulness enhances a person's ability to experience: Greater well being: Clearer thinking: More effective communication: More creativity and stronger leadership skills: Greater teamwork: Improved ability to address conflict: More awareness of personal stress and how to prevent it: Increased stability during periods of change: The ability to respond rather than react by breaking habitual patterns of behaviour: Fewer somatic illnesses. The MIN programme has been extensively piloted and we have worked with Mindfulness for years with many clients including a UK-wide department store chain, a major international wealth management company, a large UK-based cooperative, a private tutorial college, a couple of training companies that deliver to large corporates and several SMEs in various sectors.
