A New Way of Working: Using Mindfulness to Transform Effectiveness, Productivity and Happiness

In increasingly fast-paced, always-on, complex work environments, we face constant pressure to increase productivity and performance. This pressure can create imbalances in our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing, both at work and at home. The potential of the mind is vast, however, and we can train ourselves to become deeply focused, fully present, high-performing and at ease - even in the midst of busy work life. Managing our mind is the solution. Mindfulness training is a centuries old tradition which has been adapted to address the challenges of modern work life.
 This webinar will examine the realities of the modern workplace, including:
  • PAID reality of modern worklife
  • neuroscience of how we work today
  • why attention is so important to results
  • how we can practice a new way of working through mindfulness
 The webinar will include practical exercises, examples, as well as tools and techniques to integrate mindfulness into daily work life to be more productive, effective, and happier.
