Mindfulness is our capacity to focus, to really pay attention and use our brain’s resources wisely. Using an 8-step model, the Mindfulness at Work Pocketbook will allow HR and OD practitioners, coaches and team leaders to experience it for themselves and see how they can develop and implement mindfulness-based interventions within their organisations. Building a mindfulness culture in the workplace brings significant benefits both to the individual (greater job satisfaction, less stress, improved performance) and the organisation (lower absenteeism, higher productivity, reduced costs). The 8-step model spans an eight-week period with exercises for each stage. It begins by raising awareness of how the mind works and continues by building mindfulness skills and sharpening awareness of thought processes, especially how these can trigger stress. Integrating mindfulness into everyday life is dealt with in the final stages. The many exercises afford plenty of opportunities for much-needed practice.

By adopting the ancient Buddhist practice of mindfulness meditation, we can learn to pay attention to our daily experience and become more contented and fulfilled by daily activities. Many of us find it difficult to simply appreciate the present moment. We either dwell on the past or worry about the future, moving mindlessly from one activity to the next. When we are not being mindful, we miss out on small moments that are often incredibly valuable--be it a beautiful park that we walk through on our journey to work or the taste and texture of a delicious meal. In mindfulness meditation we pay attention to our ongoing experience whether it is pleasant--such as appreciating a beautiful sunny day; unpleasant--a disagreement with a loved one; or neutral--doing household chores. This Little Pocket Book is the perfect introduction to mindfulness and is packed with easy-to-follow tips and suggestions that will allow you to incorporate simple mindful moments into your daily life.

Mindfulness-based interventions in organizations offer the potential to build individual and organizational resilience, engage employees and address workplace stress. Mindfulness in the Workplace is a practical guide written for practitioners who want to learn how mindfulness can be used as a change management and organizational development strategy. Drawing from the latest research evidence from neuro- and behavioural science, Mindfulness in the Workplace offers a framework and guidance on how to start evolution- not revolution- in the organization. It ensures the greatest chance of success, showing how to identify the key stakeholders and work with them on understanding the power of a mindfulness initiative, how to identify a mindfulness champion, adapt the language of mindfulness to the context of the organization, establish metrics, and measure return on investment. Mindfulness in the Workplace proposes that HR and OD professionals are best placed to understand the complexity of implementing change in organizational systems and, therefore, the practice of mindfulness need to be brought in-house, even if they bring in external mindfulness coaches to train their leaders. Case studies including Capital One Finance and the NHS Mental Health Trust cover the reasoning behind these initiatives, how they were planned, the barriers they faced, the lessons learned, and their results. This book offers a forum for HR and OD practitioners to hear from other practitioners who have implemented organizational mindfulness-based interventions using change management principles so that they can understand how they might be applied to their own practice and their own organizations.
