Individual growth: Organisational growth
Mindfulness training is as much about skills and competency development as it is about health and wellbeing.
We work with organisations committed to facilitating sustainable behaviour change and who emphasise the growth of their people as much as they do the growth of their business, recognising of course that the two are inextricably linked.
Cultivating mindful organisations
Our ‘Four Trees’ model supports organisations from their first explorations of mindfulness through individual skills development to the organisational integration of more mindful approaches to work.
Awareness-raising through taster sessions and introductory workshops
Mindfulness and Compassion Training
Tailored training to meet organisational needs
Embedding approaches for a sustainable and better new norm
Integrating brain-friendly behaviours, psychological safety, emotional agility and creativity
Investing in people
Whether you are looking to support employees who are struggling to respond to mental health challenges, keen to develop more brain-friendly approaches to managing uncertainty and change or seeking ways to nurture creativity and insight, supporting individuals in the cultivation of inner resource packages is time and money well spent.
Mindfulness in the workplace – reports and resources
Our experiences of working with local organisations are shared, as contributory authors in Chapman-Clarke’s ‘Mindfulness in the Workplace: An evidence-based approach to improving wellbeing and maximising performance’, alongside a thought leadership piece on the potential within the active cultivation of insight in organisations.
Building the Case for Mindfulness in the Workplace
Following on from the Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group’s ‘Mindful Nation UK’ report below, ‘Building the Case for Mindfulness in the Workplace’ offers a wonderful resource for anyone wishing to make the business case for Mindfulness in the Workplace.
