Mindfulness at Work

1 class
60 minutes

Description

In one study done at Stanford University, 97% of people agreed that multitasking leads to increased efficiency in their day-to-day lives. The unfortunate truth is that multitasking, or splitting your attention, leads to reduced focus, increased stress, and worse performance. 

Though meditation is an excellent technique for training your capacity to pay attention, mindfulness in action is about the steps you can take to be present when you are tempted to multitask or lose focus at work.

In this class, you will learn and practice techniques for running mindful meetings, listening with an open mind, and focusing on the most important aspects of your work and your relationships with others.

You will leave with a greater understanding of:

  • How to notice and intentionally intervene when multitasking.
  • When to use boredom strategically to increase creativity.
  • How to return to tasks most effectively after a disruption.
