Mindfulness in the Workplace: Online & In-person Training

Mindfulness offers a way to stay balanced, focussed and connected in the face of uncertainty and complexity. The impact of Covid has made this even more vital.

The article linked here  published in Hindsight (a leading Europe-wide aviation magazine) provides a good example of the work carried out by Anchorpoint with a UK client in the nuclear sector. It also provides a great introduction to the relevance of Mindfulness for the workplace more generally.  

There is growing evidence that Mindfulness can help with the following:

  • Enhancing wellbeing 
  • Fostering resilience 
  • Supporting effectiveness
  • Self regulation 
  • Attention & clear thinking
  • collaborative working
  • Gaining a sense of perspective
Wellbeing, resilience and work life balance

For more information on bringing mindfulness into the workplace see the report Building the case for Mindfulness in the Workplace which was written in 2016 in response to the UK Parliamentary Report ‘Mindful Nation‘.

Recent work has involved EDF (see case study below) and Leeds Building Society staff. 

Following a workshop at the end of 2018 one Leeds Building Society head office staff member reflected, 

“I found the session fantastic and since working with Martin I have taken steps to learn more about and practice mindfulness. I am making great progress and can already feel calmer, happier, less stressed and able to deal with my over active mind far more easily.”

Following many workshops with her staff Becky Hewitt, Director of People at the Leeds Building Society commented,

Very well pitched and excellent feedback from workshops.
