Would your employees describe the workplace as toxic?

Does your staff seem competitive towards each other; losing sight of the end goal?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, the work environment may not be as pleasant and productive as it could be.

Stress in the workplace leads to higher rates of absenteeism & low productivity.

Here’s a great example of how staff not working well together and putting too much pressure on each other can affect a staff member:

7 Reasons You Should Meditate

Mindfulness training pivots around three skills which are naturally developed as mindfulness training progresses: concentration, clarity and equanimity.

  • Increased emotional intelligence – helps managers manage teams better and make better decisions
  • Increased clarity – allows for different perspectives & better understanding when dealing with customers, co-workers and stakeholders
  • Improved concentration – attention to detail, and ability to stay focused despite the distractions of the office
  • Increased equanimity – less conflict in relationships overall & better ability to work in a team ( improved home/life balance)
  • Happier and healthier people are more productive
  • Better attendance at work means higher productivity with less draw on company benefits and resources

This retreat will teach your staff how to incorporate mindfulness into daily life and to bring those practices into the office.
