Coaching Mentoring and Mindfulness in the Work Environment
Mindfulness is cultivating the quality of being awake, present and accepting of this moment’s experience – which has a transforming potential on how we are with ourselves, how we are with others and how we are with stressful, difficult and challenging situations.
Designed to help you develop your mindfulness mentoring and coaching skills, the Coaching and Mindfulness in the Work Environment will teach you how to design and implement a Coaching and Mindfulness in the Work Environment program using adult learning principles and current coaching and mentoring methodologies
Mindfulness is now recognised by doctors and psychologists as a powerful tool for enhancing ‘wellbeing’ and reducing anxiety, depression and everyday life stress
Some of the now much-discussed benefits of developing a mindful meditation practice speak directly to some of the biggest challenges that face us as coaches in serving our clients in the most helpful way, consistently. Benefits such as an enhanced ability to be present, calm and focused and having an increased sense of connection, empathy and compassion are at the core of good coaching. Many coaches report that developing a mindfulness practice has had more impact on their coaching and facilitation work than any other self-development they have done.
When you look at this list of benefits and add to it those connected with general health and wellbeing, it is also apparent that mindfulness can impact many aspects of your life. As such, it can also be hugely helpful to some clients, whether that means helping them to become more grounded and connected as a leader or coping better with vast workloads and stress.
In this course we will explore in more depth the benefits that becoming more mindful can bring to your coaching, and also when and how you might introduce mindfulness to clients.
Most importantly, mindfulness is practice not theory, and in order to really begin to understand what it is ‘to be mindful’, it is necessary to experience it – not just talk (or read) about it.
