Actions and Detail Panel
Integrating mindfulness and compassion
Thu 7 September 2017, 09:30 – 12:45 BST
Mindfulness and compassion are increasingly being mentioned as features present in great places to work. Research studies indicate the employee wellbeing and performance improvements which can result. In this experiential workshop we will explore what these concepts actually are and how they might be taken beyond training programme provision and leveraged to support organisational transformation and culture change.
Topics we will cover include:
- An update on research on mindfulness and compassion at work.
- Integration with HR processes; including learning and development, reward, performance management and employee engagement.
- Connecting with organisational transformation and culture change initiatives.
The programme for this event will be made available soon.
Lunch will be provided.
Who should attend?
HR, OD and leadership development specialists. It may also be of interest to senior managers tasked with leading on people, performance or systemic change initiatives.
How will you/your organisation benefit from this event?
Workshop participants will come away with practical ideas about how to introduce and embed mindfulness and compassion within their own organisations.
Alison Carter, Principal Research Fellow, Institute for Employment Studies
Alison writes, speaks and consults on a range of HR, change and leadership development issues. Her current research includes mindfulness and organisation readiness for change, but it is her evaluation of training and development programmes at work (especially coaching) for which she is recognised as an international expert.
Margaret is a consulting work and coaching psychologist, researcher and author of Mindfulness in the Workplace: An evidence-based approach to improving wellbeing and raising performance.
Margaret is passionate about ‘championing the champions’ through coaching and mentoring; facilitating masterclasses; and in her writing and speaking about mindfulness, compassion and (for which she is most known nationally and internationally) emotional intelligence (EI). She served on the expert panel that advises the UK government on mindfulness and contributed to the online resource ‘Building the Case for Mindfulness in the Workplace’. Her current research explores how creative methods, specifically poetry, can ‘reach the parts that other coaching and non-mindfulness-based EI interventions do not’.

Liz Hall, IES Associate, Professional Coach and author of 'Mindful Coaching'
Alison's discussion of what makes a 'change-ready' organisation draws heavily on recent IES research into the use of mindfulness to support strategic change-readiness in organisations.
