Event Details

Being Change-Wise: Neuroscience in Practice

 

Cultivating Inner Resources to Navigate Change

Change plays an unavoidable role in our personal and professional lives but how change-wise are we as individuals? And how 'brain friendly'* are we when it comes to managing change at work?

Day to day demands mean we can easily overlook the importance of understanding change and of consciously cultivating practical change management skills.

 

During this introductory workshop we will explore

  • The nature of change in our personal and professional lives

  • The neuroscience of change

  • Organisational management of change

  • Mindfulness as an inner resource to navigate change

  • Some of the common misconceptions about mindfulness

  • Next steps for those that would like to learn mindfulness.

 

Who should attend

This workshop is ideal for those interested in exploring their personal relationship to change and those involved in organisational approaches to change.

It is an opportunity to take time to explore the topic of change and how we might support both ourselves and those around us during times of change.

Whilst there are opportunities to go on to learn mindfulness there is no expectation to do so - curious/sceptics welcome.

 

Learning mindfulness

Those that would like to begin to practice mindfulness or explore the topic of change within an existing meditation practice may wish to consider attending an 8-week Mindfulness for Personal and Professional Change (MfC) course, offering an opportunity to

  • explore our personal and professional relationship to change

  • develop inner resources to support us through times of change, and

  • cultivate skills supportive of bringing about values-based change in our personal and professional lives.

 

Our facilitator

As a Mindfulness Instructor at the Northern Centre for Mindfulness and Compassion Sally Roberts speaks regularly about mindfulness in a variety of settings. A former HR Manager (MCIPD) Sally has taught over 50 mindfulness courses and is passionate about mindfulness in the workplace. Examples of the Centre’s work are shared as contributory authors in Chapman-Clarke’s ‘Mindfulness in the Workplace: An Evidence-based Approach to Improving Wellbeing and Maximizing Performance’.

My organisation is interested in/supportive of mindfulness – do you offer in-house training?

Yes we offer a full range of in-house mindfulness training, including stress reduction, resilience, change management, compassionate care, creativity and leadership development. Introductory workshops are an important first step for those wishing to offer mindfulness training. Please email relax@yorkmbsr.co.uk for further information. We have also agreed employee discounts with a number of local organisations. If you are unsure as to whether or not your organisation has this offer in place please check with your HR/Staff Benefits/Management team.

I am considering training to teach mindfulness, will this workshop enable me to do this?

No this is an introductory level workshop. We would recommend anyone considering training to teach mindfulness have a look at the UK Network for Mindfulness Based Teacher Training Organisations which gives guidance on good practice and teacher training organisations within the UK. An 8-week MBSR, MBCT (if you suffer personally from depression) or MBLC course is generally considered a good starting point and often a pre-requisite to attending teaching training. If you are looking to follow a particular training route it is worth checking any stipulated pre-requisites.
