This three-hour presentation introduces the practice of mindfulness and explores practical applications in the workplace. Mindfulness is the non-judgmental, moment to moment, awareness of the present moment. Mindfulness encompasses your ability to deepen self-awareness and be fully present to others. It enables you to initiate change or creatively meet the need for change with mindful planning and decision making. Studies show that stress is the number one issue in the workplace. Mindfulness addresses our responses to stress and fosters focus, clarity, creativity, and compassion in the workplace.
