There are no places, or people, less open and available to consider mindfulness – than the place of work! Yet, at a time of global insecurity, for finance and resilience, mindfulness provides clarity – and with our attention where it needs to be, we can achieve the desired outcomes.
I recently invited 80 decision makers (ha!), to consider a proposal to discuss with me – for FREE, a strategy to introduce, among other challenges – staff welfare, including retention and absence management, performance output, and internal/external communications.
Clearly, they are all achieving their organisational goals!
Staff are turning up! They are motivated and productivity is always meeting targets. The exec team are without undue stress and have demonstrable vision and accountability with no risk of ‘burn out’ evident. Customers only write or call to place orders and congratulate the business for it’s exceptional service!
No learning required here! Brilliant!
Or, the key decision maker never got to see the invitation; perhaps they did, but were too busy to consider such ‘nonsense’! Because in a ‘mindless’ world, that is exactly what my proposals would look like – nonsense!
Now, it is fair to mention, I consider myself many things, but a ‘guru’ is outside of any of those descriptions! But I do keep enjoying client feedback that informs me the work we collaborate in around improved attention and awareness does improve both my clients personal and professional lives – and this is sustainable! An outline of just some of the aspects of mindfulness in business is within the talk given by Jeremy Hunter, below. If you decide to watch it, you’ll need an hour, which is coincidentally what I ask for!
If you’d like to learn more about mindfulness for life – or business, sign-up, call or write.
