A Mindful Workpace.
What are we missing when we're not present? What would be possible if we transcended power struggles towards a clear and united purpose? What would we pursue if we could tame the self-doubt that holds us back? What decisions would we make if we were not racing through our day with cortisol pumping out of our every pore?
Imagine a workplace where people are kind, happy, focused and importantly, highly productive. One where teams are built on trust, respect, and authenticity rather than ego, politics, and gossip. Peak organizational performance is greatly hindered by social friction and individual agendas but a mindful workplace creates a set of possibilities that is truly remarkable.
My research and training have shown me what is possible when we are truly present at work. When we begin with a practice of self-awareness and self-mastery, true transformation emerges that inevitably impacts the team, and the wider organization. When we can identify and embrace our own discomfort, stress and anxiety begin to hold less power over us. Learning to care properly for ourselves enables us to lead, deepen our relationships, and live more meaningful lives.
We can't improve that which we are not aware of. Self-mastery and sustainable excellence begins with our relationship with ourself. It's up to us to choose how the story of our life unfolds.
