Business Growth Through Increasing Well being.
Great leaders make well-executed decisions, because they have clarity of ideas and a clear vision of execution.
This self-awareness, combined with an awareness of others and the environment in which they operate, allows a good leader to have a realistic overall picture. From this base, they can establish the necessary next step to achieving their company goals.
Great leaders take self-awareness one step further. They are able to reflect inwardly, in order to best manage their own emotions and reactions. This enables them to inspire externally, encouraging others to take the same calm, considered approach throughout the business, even at times of high levels of stress.
This is described as the practice of Mindfulness. Mindfulness is the method of paying attention to the present moment, using numerous techniques that anyone can master. Through the implementation of these techniques, staff are better able to deal with their own thoughts and feelings, in order to ensure that they are not overwhelmed by them.
Through the use of Mindfulness, staff can:
– Boost their attention / concentration
– Ensure better decision-making
– Lower self-centred behaviour and increase compassion for others
– Improve relationships within the workforce
– Limit anxiety, depression and addictive behaviours
– Have a positive effect on physical problems such as hypertension and chronic pain
Imagine if you could establish these benefits across your entire workforce. Not only would staff absences decrease, but the company would see better teamwork and clearer decision making. What could this low-cost intervention do for your bottom line, in as little as eight weeks?
Great leaders, and indeed, great businesses, understand the importance of the well-being of their people. This interest in the workforce’s happiness and development will spark and maintain enthusiasm and loyalty, two attributes in staff that can neither be manufactured nor bought.
By establishing both loyalty and enthusiasm as part of a company culture, in a workforce who are both respected and valued, a business sets itself strong foundations. It is said that ‘your team is only as strong as its weakest link’, but if the whole team is pulling together, in the same direction with common goals and a healthy sense of teamwork, contribution and job satisfaction, then a strong unit has been built.
Our Mindfulness Programmes
We know that creating a company culture absolutely starts from the top down. That’s why we offer the Mindful Leadership programme. Focusing on getting your company’s leaders as clear, calm and focused as possible, having great, mindful leaders will undoubtedly encourage the rest of your workforce to take inspiration and follow suit.
Mindful Sales & Influence
If your company is active in a high-pressure environment, such as Sales, it is especially important to give attention to the well being of your workforce. By learning how to use Mindfulness techniques, your team can ensure that they are efficiently managing both their physiology and psychology in order to most efficiently influence potential customers and successfully build their sales, individually and as a unit.
Mindfulness & Stress Management
We all encounter stress at some point in our lives, and more frequently this is being attributed to pressurised work environments, over- worked individuals, long hours, feeling devalued by employers and the constant need for successful delivery.
If you feel that your employees are likely to be suffering high levels of stress on a consistent basis, then it is important that your organisation finds a way to help your staff to manage it. When left unmanaged, heightened stress levels can lead to increased staff absence, high levels of physical illness, discontentment within the workforce, and ultimately a high staff turnover, which all cost the business, unnecessarily.
Probably the most crucial reason for Mindfulness training, is to enable individuals to learn simple techniques proven to reduce anxiety and stress, giving increased levels of wellbeing, thus impacting positively upon all areas of the business.
Performance & Mindfulness
In order to execute to the highest level of excellence, it is imperative to be calm, focused and clear on how to achieve objectives. With your employees practising mindfulness techniques, they can rapidly enter high levels of concentration and execute effectively.
Mindfulness: Train The Trainer
With your Leadership team trained in Mindfulness, the rest of your team will also benefit from training in how to use Mindfulness techniques within their own specific roles. By training your Leaders and Managers in how to teach Mindfulness, we can ensure that your entire workforce are working efficiently as one unit.
