“We all have habitual ways of responding to emotional challenges. Mindfulness training alters these habits by making it more likely that one neuronal pathway rather than another will be used. Mindfulness meditation carves new channels in the streambeds of the mind.” Richard Davidson The Emotional Life of Your Brain

Mindfulness at Work -- What's this About?...

We like to think work is a place of uninterrupted concentration, when it’s actually more a case of continuous partial distraction.

In busy jobs when we feel pressured or plain overloaded with daily heavy-duty demands, we rarely stop to be present; to attend to what’s going on right in front of us; to focus our full attention on the job, or the person at hand.

The costs of mindlessness at work are colossal but go un-catalogued: mistakes, stress, loss of concentration, re-work, accidents.

Mindfulness is a way we can train our brains to be able to focus on what matters most at work – a conversation, a task, a priority or a pressure. It can help us be present, prevent mind-wandering and most of all become more fulfilled, healthy and productive.

Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence...

The ability to set aside distractions, focus attention and engage with whatever’s unfolding in front of you in a measured way is foundational for self-awareness and a raft of other must-have traits like being present, open-minded, emotionally-balanced and less stress-prone...

To cope well at work and be a productive team member, it helps first to know yourself -- what we call personal mastery. At the core of personal mastery, is self-awareness -- which is also fundamental in becoming more emotionally intelligent. Mindfulness springs from self-awareness -- it’s how we put emotional competencies like self-management and self-awareness into action.

Mindfulness, personal mastery and emotional intelligence are all intimately interconnected. To put it simply, mindfulness at work starts with emotional intelligence – it’s key to being more fully in control of our feelings, thoughts and actions and waking up to what’s happening in and around us.

Mindfulness at Work extends our 10+ years of emotional intelligence and conversational coaching into refreshing new personal frontiers. It looks at what it means to be mindful and introduces 5 mental markers and simple brain-training tools to transform the way you are at work.

Mindfulness minus Meditation...

Mindfulness is often linked with meditation -- but you don’t have to meditate to be mindful. There's no doubt that regular meditation practice is good for your health and for your ability to cope with anxiety and stress.

But there are many every-day ways you can train your brain to focus attention, downgrade distractions and heighten presence and clarity – deep and abiding mind-skills to lift your personal productivity and strengthen your sense of balance and well-being.

Neuroscience discoveries show even a few minutes of mindfulness exercise a day can change our brain for the better and help us tap into our inner-space to find clarity, calm and focus in a maze of confusion, uncertainty, conflicting priorities and unrelenting stress. And this is what Mindfulness at Work is about...
