“The main business case for meditation is that if you’re fully present on the job, you will be more effective as a leader, you will make better decisions and you will work better with other people,” he tells me. “I tend to live a very busy life. This keeps me focused on what’s important.”


Businesses will increasingly discover this 'power of arrival.'

Mindfulness: helping employees to deal with stress - 9/3/2012 - Personnel Today

Mindfulness: helping employees to deal with stress - 9/3/2012 - Personnel Today | Living Resilient | Scoop.it

I know from personal experience that mindfulness can be a very powerful approach both in and outside of work.  

 

I became interested in this approach about 8 years ago. As part of my exploration about it, I went to live in a Thai Buddhist Monastery.  I taught the monks English and they taught me about meditation and mindfulness.

 

You don't need to travel to a remote monastery to develop such skills.  As per the article above, many organisations recognise the benefits of this approach to both the individual and the company.  It alleviates stress and allows for clearer thinking.  It is not uncommon to find mindfulness sessions being made available to employees. 

 

Here at Grass Roots one of my colleagues Justin Farquhar is also very experienced in the practice of mindfulness.   He ran a series of mindfulness sessions for employees that were very successful and well received.   

 

It is definitely worth trying it out for yourself, and recommending to employees.
