Many organisations have implemented Mindfulness based programmes to improve
effectiveness and productivity. Examples include Irish Life, eBay, Google, Prudential,
BT Group, PricewaterhouseCoopers, the Home Office and the NHS.
Beckinridge are leading providers of Mindfulness training with a focus on the practical application of Mindfulness within the workplace.
Our 'Using Mindfulness In The Workplace’ programme consists of a one-day workshop to explore and practice Mindfulness techniques applicable to a workplace context with Four Weeks of Follow Up Support.
The follow up support element includes weekly contact for each participant with instructions and guidance on their Mindfulness practice for the week.
They also receive access to weekly on-line Guided Mindfulness Meditations which they can download to use to support their practice. The purpose of the follow up is to encourage the practice of the Mindfulness skills explored on the training day and embed the learning and practical application.
The overall Mindfulness programme will help attendees:
- Increase effectiveness and concentration.
- Improve interpersonal relationships.
- Better manage conflict and difficult situations.
- Achieve higher levels of well-being and resilience.
- Reduce levels of stress.
- Develop Emotional Intelligence.
- Increase self-awareness & awareness of others.
