Forward-looking companies recognise the excellent value for money that comes from the right type of corporate wellness program.
Study after study shows that relaxation, meditation and mindfulness increase levels of well being, capacity to handle stress, health and motivation, thereby reducing employee “burn-out” . absenteeism, and “presenteeism”.
Positive psychology brings a new dimension into corporate wellness and executive coaching, focusing on the positive side of human nature, on cultivating strengths, and creating the conditions for maximum employee flow and engagement, using interventions that are scientifically proven to be effective.
What company doesn’t want to give itself the “human edge” by having a work-force that is “flourishing” rather than “languishing”?
Mindfulness workshops are an extremely cost effective way of bringing the benefits of mindfulness, CBT and positive psychology to your workforce. Workshops generally last 2.5 hours, and can be taken on its own or can be combined into a full day programme. A programme can be tailored to your compan’s requirements. Some example of themes covered in past workshops include:
- Paths to Wellness
- Flourishing in times of change: how to increase Resilience
- Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
- Optimistic Thinking Skills
- Developing Signature Strengths, Engagement and Flow
- Positive Communication Skills
Each workshop includes mindfulness practice and tips on incorporating mindfulness into the workplace. Workshops are participative rather than lecture-based, are fun and rewarding for participants, and the skills learned tend to be self-reinforcing.
A mindfulness and positivity programme has a “Ripple Effect” on the whole organisation.
