ABOUT THE COURSE

Before you raise that sceptic eyebrow of yours, we’re not talking about a celebrity endorsed self-help trend, nor are we asking you to give up all your worldly possessions in order to become a Buddhist monk. 

We’re talking about a scientifically-backed method that makes dealing with work issues much easier. 

In fact, it’s a skill already practised in some of the most successful companies.

This course will teach you all about the benefits of mindfulness, and we’ll show you how it works.

KEY INSIGHTS

  • What is Mindfulness? - In its simplest form, mindfulness means awareness. It’s about paying attention to the present moment. 
  • Mindfulness Toolkit - We’ve put together five of our favourite mindfulness practices and strategies that you can implement at work.
  • Mindful Breathing - Spend some time focusing on your breathing. As you breathe, simply identify the in-breath and the out-breath.
  • Concentration - Concentration is the anchor of mindfulness. Mindful Communication - Improve the quality of the communication between you and co-workers while simultaneously deepening your mindfulness practice.
  • Slow Down - We’re so used to rushing around all day, we sometimes forget there’s another way to live. We think that it’s “just how life is”. But, it’s not. And, of course, part of the point of mindfulness and meditation is to calm the mind.
  • Fast Track Mindfulness - Life can be busy, so it can be difficult to commit to being more mindful at the start. Discover quick tips, designed to introduce mindfulness into your day, in a subtle way

WHO IS IT FOR?

  • Anyone who feels stressed at work.
  • Executives who want to be better leaders.
  • Anyone seeking more focus, emotional strength and kindness for themselves or others. 

COURSE FORMAT

The course uses an animated explainer video to cover the key topics so you can learn in a fun and engaging way. There is also a practical toolkit section that you can work through at your own pace, designed to help build your own mindfulness.
