Description

Lean mind: Mindfulness & Work

Juggling the demands of today’s private and working life is not easy. Evolution has not yet caught up with the 21st-century lifestyles so we need to help our nervous system to cope with stress.

The reason why many organizations and Leaders are turning to mindfulness are the well-documented benefits it brings:

Among the benefits listed by The Mindfulness Initiative, an institute that offers mindfulness teaching in the UK Parliament are:

· Better decision making, giving leaders more freedom to choose informed responses over automatic reactions.

· Boosted creativity & Innovation by improving focus, promoting divergent thinking and increasing the capacity to respond in a novel and adaptive ways to challenges.

· Improved quality of life through higher resilience to stress and the associated mental health problems.

Like with any exercise regimen, regular practice is the key for mindfulness to bring about sustained results.

In this workshop, we will learn a short mindful routine that can be put into practice immediately. To gain the necessary confidence in establishing this new habit, we will investigate exactly why and how it is so beneficial - based upon an explanation of cutting-edge neurobiological models.

This programme, in combination with regular guided practices in the office, is currently running at KPN with success.

Agenda

15:00 - door open - welcome drinks.

15:30 - presentation starts.

17:00 - 18:00 networking after the presentation.

Organiser Keen Folk

Organiser of Lean mind: Mindfulness & Work

Keen Folk is the space where freelancers go to grow, connect, thrive, contribute and dream.

 

While the 21st century raises many challenges for us as individuals never have the opportunities of working for ourselves been so great.  We believe that the real key to happiness in the workplace is to change the traditional employee/employer relationship.  Through it, a more equal and collaborative relationship can be achieved between those who provide services and those who enjoy them.  To democratise the workspace in this way is to empower people while unleashing their potential.  This is what drives our higher purpose and our desire to capacitate and support all those who want to benefit from this new economy as freelancers or entrepreneurs.  And while we encourage you to be in business for yourself we know how important it is to not be by yourself.
