Learning Studio Webcast: Mindfulness & Mayhem
Topic: “Happiness is an inside job.” — Sylvia Boorstein The world operates at a dizzying pace. Between work deadlines, the demands of home and family life, and the general stress of life and the external environment, things can start to seem overwhelming. This course will focus on mindfulness and emotional intelligence training, integrating deep personal development with best practices we’ve learned from individuals and teams creating positive change within organizations. What is mindfulness exactly? It is the moment-to-moment awareness of one's experience without judgment. In this sense, mindfulness is a state and not a trait. While it might be promoted by certain practices or activities, such as meditation, it is not equivalent to or synonymous with them. Among its theorized benefits are self-control, objectivity, affect tolerance, enhanced flexibility, improved concentration and mental clarity, emotional intelligence and the ability to relate to others and one's self with kindness, acceptance and compassion. Additionally, mindfulness is highly correlated to stress reduction, one of its most popular features for most interested individuals.
• Identify the definition of mindfulness and what practices develop mindfulness.
• Identify at least four benefits of the effect of mindfulness and emotional intelligence on the workplace.
• Understand how to put mindfulness and emotional intelligence into your daily practice to live a more balanced, healthy and happy existence.
