Mindfulness Practices for Resilient Organizations
Mindfulness meditation has become popular for helping individuals recover physically and emotionally from typical work stressors. People who regularly practice mindfulness and reflection tend to develop a deeper awareness of self, others, situations, and environments. Besides the positive effects on individuals, mindfulness contributes to workplace effectiveness through greater empathy, enhanced collaboration, and more contemplative decision-making, all of which enhance organizational resilience.
Session participants will:
• Discuss the effects of mindfulness on communication and emotion-regulated collaboration
• Compare and contrast several methods for enhancing mindfulness
• Discuss the value of opportunities for practicing mindfulness individually or together and the potential effects on workplace culture
