Mindfulness for Organizations

 
One way to boost our will power and focus is to manage our distractions, instead of letting them manage us.
— Daniel Goleman
 
 

Mindfulness is a state of consciousness

Mindfulness is a state of consciousness in which our preferences and judgmental ways fade and equanimity emerges. This state of conscious awareness reduces stress and allows us to face complex and difficult situations in a more centered and resourceful way.

Mindfulness also refers to the practices that cultivate this state of awareness. The most well-known mindfulness practice is meditation.

Jon Kabat-Zinn played an instrumental role in helping mindfulness spread in the west, thanks to his research that helped provide evidence for the benefits of mindfulness practice.

Benefits of regular Mindfulness Practice:

  • Reduction of stress and the associated health risks

  • A more focused, less distracted attention

  • A more centered and open presence

  • Increased skillfulness to handle difficult situations, such as conflict and intense emotional circumstances

A group of 15 people took the 8-week Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction course with Alex. Having finished the course, we can say that we grew closer relationships and that we acquired tools that have allowed us to navigate a period of change at the company in a more skillful way. Additionally, the work climate was positively impacted and the growth as human beings in each of us is evident.
