CPD 1 2015: Working with Mindfulness
IMI CPD For Managers
This event is now sold out.
Our 2015 series of CPD Workshops for Managers kicks off on Thursday March 12th, with a session on Working with Mindfulness led by Rasmus Hougaard of The Potential Project (TPP).
Businesses today operate under intense pressure to produce results. In the 24/7 pressurised, always on, information-overloaded environment of the typical modern workplace, it can be difficult to focus our attention on what is really important. Indeed the ability to manage our attention may be one of the key management skills of the 21st century.
This CPD Workshop will show why and how Fortune 500 companies are using mindfulness training to significantly increase job performance, resilience, creativity and work-life balance.
The session will cover:
- What mindfulness is and what the science is telling us
- Benefits to you and your organisation
- How to apply mindfulness in the workplace
- A mindfulness training session
Participants should leave with a clear understanding of how they can practically use mindfulness to benefit themselves, their team, and their business.
