Programme Introduction:

Recently, interest in research and practice of mindfulness in organizational setting has increased manifold. This interest has been fueled by the host of research findings which have highlighted the positive role of mindfulness for employees well-being and organizational bottom line. A large body of research has highlighted the implications of mindfulness on intra and interpersonal levels. Realizing its importance, many organizations have integrated mindfulness based programmes.
Recent discoveries in the field of Neuroscience have categorically proven how mindfulness training can reshape neuronal pathways, exert a healthy influence on brain function, and help leaders find a haven of clarity, calm and focus in a maelstrom of uncertainty. This programme holds a lot of significance specifically during COVID times when employees are more stressed and emotionally exhausted. Handling such workforce remains a big challenge for practitioners and requires both personal and social competencies. Equipping practitioners in mindfulness would help shape these competencies. Our subconscious mind is a really powerful source that heavily influences our skills concerning leadership and organizational success. And, not surprisingly, the subconscious often feels out of our control because its impact is either completely out of our awareness or we don't know how to access and change it. In this program, we'll help you reorganize and change in ways you didn't know you needed to change or that you could.
The programme focuses on manager’s own self growth and development by employing multiple formats and tools that allow space for self-exploration and provide developmental inputs drawing upon a diverse body of literature on mindfulness.
