Practice of Mindfulness: Towards Effective Management and Performance

3 Hours

Program Description

Business leaders are being challenged today in an environment, which is fast-paced, hyper-connected, and technologically focused. There is a growing interest among thought leaders from varied disciplines such as science, medicine, sports, and business that the practice of mindfulness will enable business managers and employees to develop the required capabilities for effective management and to enhance performance. In addition, organizations will be able to cultivate and develop the leadership potential of their employees through the practice of mindfulness. The workshop will consist of interactive discussion, understanding the nature of the mind, recognize the barriers, learn techniques to overcome the barriers, simple exercises for daily practice, guided meditation and individual feedback (depending on size of the group). Real world situations will be discussed and participants are encouraged to bring their cases to the workshop.

  1. Develop self-awareness (awareness of your strengths and developmental needs for weaknesses) and situational awareness
  2. Identify your goals clearly, prioritize conflicting demands, and remain focused
