The benefits of mindfulness in the workplace is an expanding field of research that has so far shown promising results in the following fields. Research is ongoing, however more and more businesses are including mindfulness as an intervention both for staff wellness & for systems change within organisations.
- Decreased rumination
- Improved stress resilience
- Improved relationship skills
- Enhanced task performance
- Greater focus & improved performance
- Improved decision making
- Improved job satisfaction
Mindfulness should no longer be considered a “nice-to-have” for executives. It’s a “must-have: a way to keep our brains healthy, to support self-regulation and effective decision-making capabilities, and to protect ourselves from toxic stress. It can be integrated into one’s religious or spiritual life, or practiced as a form of secular mental training. When we take a seat, take a breath, and commit to being mindful, particularly when we gather with others who are doing the same, we have the potential to be changed.”
I believe that mindfulness represents a state of mind that speaks rather directly to the kind of cognitive flexibility and creative insight required in the modern workplace. It builds unique cognitive abilities that enable creativity in individuals that otherwise would be trapped
in conventional ways of interpreting their world. It is all the more promising because unlike other individual difference factors, it is directly trainable, which increases its promise as a possible workplace creativity intervention.”
