We would make better decisions, communicate more effectively, be more efficient, and perhaps even leave work happier at the end of the day.
Jon Kabat-Zinn   This is exactly what every employer and employee desires to be. The difference between successful organisations and the rest is not confined to the ability to face adversities but also advancing the vision of the organisation through the achievement of its goals. This can be achieved by investing in the inner resources of employees. Mindfulness practices are geared towards developing these inner resources. In fact, successful and innovative organisations such as Google and Apple have been running programmes to sustain a mindful corporate culture in the recent years.

Our daily transactions at work are most often than not driven by our habitual tendencies like an autopilot. These habitual tendencies could sometimes be detrimental to the objectives and goals of the organisation, department or even personal commitments. The ability to step away from our habitual inclinations and focus on the goals objectively would require a mind that is naturally responsive and not one that is reactive. This can be achieved through Mindfulness Practices that are based on clear intention and purposeful attention. It all starts from within.
