All workshops and programs are focused on 3 pillars of training – Attention Awareness Action
The training of attention as the quality of our attention affects the quality of our work, our relationships and our life.
The training of our attention increases awareness of our patterns of thinking and emotional reactivity and we engage in effective and practical methods to work more skilfully with these patterns
Strengthening attention and awareness leads to more skilful action – in line with values. We develop skilful habits – sustainable ways of living, relating and working – that lead to efficient and creative people and workplaces and underpin good leadership and management.
The five-week program and 1:1 coaching cover the following topics:
Week 1 – Focus and Presence
Week 2 – Perception and Appraisal
Week 3 – Physiology and Psychology of Stress
Week 4 – Emotional Regulation
Week 5 – Cognitive Flexibility
Mindfulness training teaches us foundational skills to:
Enhance mental fitness and clarity
Develop agile and adaptive mindsets
Reduce stress responses
Improve access to creativity
Develop greater self-awareness
Enhance emotion regulation and mastery
Improve communication skills
Develop better decision-making skills
Increase engagement and team effectiveness
Experience greater overall wellbeing
As you build the skills of mindfulness, you will become less stressed, less overwhelmed and less distracted. As you increase your mindful presence you will become more focused, engaged and make better decisions. This increases efficiency, productivity as well as making you more available to receive creative ideas and insights. You will also increase your capacity to connect with other people and respond in wiser ways to everyday events as well as significant challenges, upsets and difficult relationships.
Assessment and feedback
Before and after a program a number of mindfulness survey assessments tools can be used, for example the Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS), the Five Facets of Mindfulness and the Mindfulness at Work survey. Post-program feedback surveys are also conducted.
