What is Mindfulness?
While mindfulness is an ancient wisdom tradition, today it is an evidence-based training used in government, healthcare, business, education and military settings.
“There are many definitions of mindfulness but it boils down to a training in attention,” says Dr. Geoffrey Soloway. “Rather than worrying about what has happened or might happen in the future, mindfulness teaches people to respond skillfully to whatever is happening right now. Once people see things for what they really are, they can respond better, communicate more clearly and be more engaged with what they’re doing."
Doctoral Candidate Adam Kay reports the top three benefits of integrating mindfulness into the workplace are:
Ability to regulate emotions
Ability to stay present and conserve mental resources
Mindfulness is taught at leading organizations such as Google, Goldman Sachs, British Parliament and MBA schools around the globe, including Harvard Business School as it decreases stress, anxiety and depression and increases performance, focus, memory and creativity. A UBC study of MindWell-U's 'Mindfulness@Work' program proves it has "significant effect on levels of mindfulness, and positively impacts work performance, creativity and conflict management."
“Teaching mindfulness enables students to calm their minds and increase focus. Such skills are crucial for succeeding in an increasingly frenetic environment where distractions from an always-buzzing phone to pressure for strong quarterly profits constantly impinge on decisions.”
— Bill George, Professor of Management Practice, Harvard Business School
Mindfulness has a huge impact on leadership because it helps leaders become more empathetic, in-tune with their employees and responsive vs. reactive which has big benefits when it comes to consensus-building and decision-making.
“Coca-Cola hosted three over-subscribed MindWell-U workshops and we were very pleased. The workshops provided a great overview of mindfulness and practical techniques that our associates were able to use immediately. We were so impressed that Coca-Cola had MindWell-U deliver a half-day workshop to our top leaders and we're offering the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge to all employees.”
— Tova White, VP Human Resources, Coca-Cola
