Finding Balance Through Mindfulness (P246)

Reducing Stress and Improving Your Resiliency at Work

This course is currently being delivered as a live, instructor-led session online. See dates in the online section to the right.

The practice of mindfulness – centering your attention in the present by focusing on the breath – has been around for thousands of years. A growing body of research is demonstrating it can have a powerful impact on how you think, feel, act, relate, perform and collaborate at work.

On an individual level, mindfulness practice helps you to control your emotions – anger, frustration, fear – so you can be inquiring, thoughtful, logical, rational and strategic, and focus on the work that needs done, rather than on the situations that may distract you from your priorities. In effect, being mindful and aware allows you to acknowledge emotion and move towards logic and reason in any situation.

This workshop, facilitated by a long-term workplace mindfulness practitioner, will show you how to integrate mindfulness with emotional intelligence and organizational behaviour theories and tools, so you can immediately begin to enhance your own well-being and improve your relationships and effectiveness at work.

This is a one-day workshop in Ottawa.

Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
