Mindfulness in the Workplace - Courses and Training

Across many sectors, the workplace environment is experiencing increasing  pressure, uncertainty and complexity. 

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

  • Supporting effectiveness
  • Enhancing wellbeing 
  • Fostering resilience 
  • Self regulation 
  • Attention & clear thinking
  • collaborative working
  • Sense of perspective.

Recent work has involved some clients within safety critical industries. If you are from a safety critical industry and would like to explore the possibilities of bringing mindfulness into the human performance sector please do get in touch. 

Anchor Point Mindfulness offers workplace teams a bespoke service. In developing an effective programme, we work collaboratively with key stakeholders to gain a clear understanding of the particular challenges facing an organisation or team. The result is a mindfulness course that is both relevant and meaningful. An organisation may wish to focus on:

Wellbeing, resilience and work life balance
Relationships, self-regulation and collaboration
Focus, safety and clear decision-making
Mindfulness Training to fit your requirements

Anchor Point Mindfulness bespoke training packages ensure a good fit between course content and structure and the workplace in question. Training can be delivered in a variety of formats, including;

  • Short workshop/ tasters (suggested 90 minute min)
  • Half day workshops
  • Courses running over a number of weeks.
  • Talks and workshops at Wellbeing events/conferences
  • Bespoke interventions to fit your needs

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

Very well pitched and some excellent feedback.
