Mindful at Work
21st century working life demands higher output with greater standards, at lower cost and with tighter deadlines. Globalisation and unprecedented changes further add to the challenge. How can we meet these ever-increasing demands without compromising health and well-being for ourselves and for our staff?
Research over past 30 years has proven that Mindfulness has multifaceted benefits and impacts including:
- Well-being: Reduces stress, improves immune function, reduces blood pressure and increases enjoyment (both inside and outside of work)
- Cognitive: Mindfulness generates a clearer focus and ability to sustain it for longer periods of time. It improves memory, boosts creative problem solving skills.
- Emotional: Enhances emotional awareness, emotional intelligence and helps build relationship skills
- Organisational: Boosts engagement, fulfilment and decision-making within organisation
- Leadership: Mindful leaders produce improvement in performance, job satisfaction, psychological need satisfaction and organisational citizenship in their staff
Mindfulness improves 3 unique qualities of attention – stability, control, and efficacy. In terms of relationships, Mindfulness boosts connection, provides us with greater empathy and compassion for fellow human beings. Despite the popular image, Mindfulness is not about relaxation. It provides a clear presence of mind that helps you focus effectively on what matters most. It helps to get more done, more easily, more effectively and more enjoyably.
Results of research indicate that Mindfulness can help you in more ways than you think, especially in the workplace. The study suggests that:
- Mindfulness positively impacts human functioning
- Mindfulness helps improve quality of attention
- Mindfulness, even though it is an internal quality, can impact interpersonal behavior
- Mindfulness can help provide greater empathy and compassion.
