Planning, idea generation, decision making, communicating, and supervising, advising or training others, are all essential activities in everyday business. With better focus, clarity, empathy and creativity we become much better at all of them. Optimizing our state of mind is critical to our business, (not to mention our happiness), yet how much priority do we give it? Choosing to take regular action to improve your mental state is one of the most powerful business decisions you will ever make.
This one-hour highly interactive webinar looks at the state of mind of technology workers today – from the scattered, anxious manager to the clear minded, supportive leader.
Contemporary research will be reviewed demonstrating the improvement in productivity, engagement and retention resulting from mindfulness practice. Participants will explore the challenges they currently face, the impact of low level state of mind on team dynamics and customer outcomes, and tangible ways they can begin improving their focus, empathy and clarity using two simple exercises. Those in attendance will have access to a research summary and two guided meditation recordings that they can use to continue practicing at home.
