Mindfulness for employees
With the increasing digitalization and working from home in the pandemic, the separation between work and private life has decreased for many people. The natural pauses when transitioning from home to work or from one meeting to another have been replaced by a stream of back-to-back online meetings which often last until late at night.
During this time of social distancing, many employees feel isolated, worried and anxious.
As we are facing more challenges, it is important to build up inner resources such as learning to activate our soothing system, gratitude, kindness, determination etc. Applying mindfulness skills can increase your resilience and wellbeing and decrease fear and stress.
Choose from a range of workshops or 8-week mindfulness courses in an online or in-person format to support your wellbeing. Topics include: stress, attention, energy, compassion, communication, emotional balance.
Special wellbeing programme for staff during lockdown:
- mindful pauses with 30 minute online meditations, yoga or stretching during lunch time or morning.
- 8-week online course on "Finding peace in a frantic world"

Mindfulness for leaders
Being a manager has never been easy, but today leaders are facing unprecedented complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity. The most frequent complaint by leaders is the lack of mental space they experience. We simply do not have the necessary space to be clear and focused, to listen deeply to ourselves and others in order to take adequately informed and wise decisions.
If we are to successfully resolve the greater challenges we face – within our organisations, society and the planet as a whole – we need more focused and creative leaders, with a clear sense of purpose and compassion for the greater whole.
Learn how to lead from awareness with our focused leadership training.
The benefits of mindfulness in organisations
Offering mindfulness training in an organisation has numerous benefits.
On an individual level, you will experience greater wellbeing, be more focused, calm and creative and find a better work-life balance.
On an organisational level, people who deal better with stress and have a clearer mind are more efficient, creative and committed. Scientific research shows that there are also fewer conflicts and communication and trust improves when the team members practise mindfulness.
Mindfulness improves both individual wellbeing and organisational performance
Our mindfulness courses and workshops help to:
- Keep your cool in acutely stressful situations and prevent chronic stress from building up
- Develop sharper focus, and identify and act on opportunities more quickly and more creatively
- Manage your energy levels and prevent exhaustion and burnout
- Balance your emotions and communicate more effectively
- Move from “crisis management” to a more inspirational style of leadership
- learn to see clearly and be more creative
- Develop self-confidence based on self-compassion and a sense of agency
- Improve your communication skills by learning to listen and speak mindfully
We teach practical and easy-to-learn mindfulness skills that can be used both at home and at the workplace.
We have seen from experience that our courses and workshops appeal to a diverse audience, including administrative staff, engineers or scientists, managers, sales people, and other profiles.
We believe that mindfulness skills can make this world a better place, not only because it helps to improve individual wellbeing, but also because it leads to wiser choices and more kindness in this world.
