About the course: Mindfulness practice in the workplace translates directly into improved employee health by reducing stress, improving resilience, and promoting effective relationship building amongst teams. This means happier, more productive staff and a more resilient company overall.
A body of qualitative evidence supports findings that mindfulness improves workplace functioning and productivity, including:
Amid a growing awareness of the costs of absenteeism, presenteeism and staff turnover associated with stress and mental health problems, workplace mindfulness-based training courses have found positive effects on burnout, wellbeing and stress.
That's why this unique online training programme is ideal for organisations who are looking to reap the benefits of mindfulness.
Sign up for this online course prior to its official launch on 13 September 2020 to enjoy the pre-launch rate of USD49 (before GST). Designed as an 8-module course, each module will be launched weekly from 13 September onwards. Participants will be granted a two-year access to the online course, which they can complete at their own time and convenience.
Module 1 introduces the basics and benefits of mindfulness, both in the workplace and in your personal life. This session looks at the definitions and practices, and debunks some of the myths existing around mindfulness.
Module 2 looks at the definition of stress and how it shows up. Participants are encouraged to consider what they notice when they’re stressed – what are your triggers? The session also looks at burnout and how to recognise the warning signs.
Module 3 introduces mindfulness as a tool to building resilience. This session looks at how to use the breath as an anchor.
Module 4 looks at metacognition - i.e. the ability to observe your thoughts. This introduces the distinction between participants' thoughts and participants themselves. You are not your thoughts: you are what observes your thoughts. The practice allows for more clear-eyed and focused decision-making by helping participants recognise the unseen drivers behind their thoughts and decisions.
Module 5 continues the learning from Module 4 and applies it to movement and attention. Participants are introduced to the concept that only attention is under our control (not thoughts and situations etc). This understanding helps increase mindful focus and purposeful movement.
Module 6 invites participants to practise the pause: giving our brains time to catch up, and move from reactivity to responsibility. This session focuses on making the choice about how to respond to life’s events with acceptance, patience and without judgment. Without past experiences colouring our reactions and expectations, responses are more clear-eyed and fair, allowing for more honest actions and communications. This pause between impulse and action is fruitful ground for creativity, as it breaks established patterns to allow new thinking to blossom and performance to change.
Module 7 brings together learnings from previous modules with a focus on listening deeply and speaking honestly, which helps to improve communication and teamwork. What does it mean to pause in conversation and just listen?
Module 8 incorporates the teachings from all previous modules to focus on values and self-care: participants are invited to reflect on what kind of person they want to be - both personally and in the workplace.
