Many aspects of basic meditation practice can have a profoundly positive impact on people in the workplace increasing their productivity and quality of life. Teaching your staff to meditate is a "Win Win situation" as everyone benefits.

Why Should You Teach Your Staff Meditation?

There are lots of real benefits that people get from properly taught meditation. From a corporate perspective many of these meditation based benefits translate into happier, healthier and more productive staff. Below are just some of the ways meditation can improve the wellbeing and performance of your employees:

Positive Feedback From "Workplace Meditation Training"

Feedback from Meditation for the Workplace Trianing Given to the NHS ...feedback was great from the session. People ranging from saying that they felt totally energized afterwards, to people saying it gave them just that quiet 25 to 30 minutes just to decompress at the end of the day really. People also said to me it was a really thought out session, and they really appreciated the time just to take some time to be still at the end of the day... [read the rest here]

What Are The Typical Workplace Meditation Training Options?

Option 1. Short Workplace Meditation Taster Session

Typically I would come to your workplace and in a quiet room, would teach your employees the basic techniques appropriate for stress reduction and mental clarity. After the session, which would normally be about one hour, they will have the foundation skills to start meditating and benefiting right away.

The training is instructional and exercise based and they would need comfortable chairs. They will be seated throughout. Typically group sizes of between 15 and 30 are ideal.

Option 2. Structured Workplace Meditation Course

Typically this would be a workplace based meditation course held one evening a week for three to four weeks, with an hour to 90 mins per session. During the course I will provide practical hands on training in a range of meditation techniques, relaxation and awareness approaches to empower you staff in their work and personal lives.

Option 3. Half Day Meditation Training Workshop

I would come into your workplace and train your staff in a number of meditation, relaxation and awareness improving techniques. The half day meditation training would be structured around practical, applicable and usable meditation techniques with a focus on enhancing workplace performance, morale and work life balance.

Key Points To Consider For Workplace Based Meditation Training

So What Does a Meditation Teacher Know About Corporate Pressure?

I've been teaching since the late 90's and I've worked with many a "stressed out executive or employee". But I also have a day job and after spending many years working as an IT specialist for a well know multinational company, a role which saw me managing two rapid development teams in the UK and USA, I then went on to become a Director of my own company. So I have first hand experience of corporate life both big and small. In fact it is practicing regular meditation which has allowed me to not only cope but thrive with the challenges of balancing, work, life, family, fun and teaching. So when I teach meditation skills for the workplace, I am teaching based on years of direct experience.

What Inspirational Leaders Say About Meditation:

"If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there's room to hear more subtle things - that's when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It's a discipline; you have to practice it."

From the Steve Jobs Biography by Walter Isaacson.

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

Albert Einstein
