The Mindful Workplace: Developing Resilient Individuals and Resonant Organizations with MBSR
This book offers a practical and theoretical guide to the benefits of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) in the workplace, describing the latest neuroscience research into the effects of mindfulness training and detailing an eight-week mindfulness training course.
Mindfulness – a way of paying attention to whatever arises from moment to moment, in yourself, others and the world around you – enhances resilience by enabling people to more quickly renew themselves, offsetting stress and reducing the risk of burnout. Fusing the ancient art of meditative practice with scientific research, this approach develops self-awareness and an empathic understanding of others, raises emotional intelligence, and enables employees to build more resonant relationships both inside and outside the workplace.
In addition to describing the latest neuroscience research into the effects of mindfulness training, the book lays out a detailed eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) training course that has been specifically customized for the workplace. For executives and employees, The Mindful Workplace offers insights into the process and potential benefits of mindfulness training. For professionals interested in individual and team effectiveness, it suggests ways to significantly advance workplace dynamics and provides the hands-on tools and advice needed to implement lasting change.
