In my work with organizations, I teach mindfulness skills to many diverse staff members to improve their performance and attitude in the workplace. I have taught in many formats: half-days, full-days, or in a series.
Mindfulness is increasingly recognized as an important positive factor for individual health and well-being; it has been shown to increase work satisfaction, decrease burnout, and produce better overall outcomes for the organization.
The experiential trainings I offer teach participants about the science that supports the benefits of mindfulness, provides opportunities to learn and practice techniques that can be used in a professional setting, and offers guidance and materials for leading colleagues and co-working in an introductory mindfulness experience.
Organizations can realize numerous benefits from professional trainings – both immediate and long-term. Employees experience greater focus and concentration, enhanced fulfillment and happiness, more effective interpersonal interactions that are less reactive and more cooperative, and an enhanced self-confidence and confidence in the organization of which they are part.
I have taught diverse groups of 25-30 participants at the Johnson & Johnson Excellence in Nursing Program, the Duke Law School, for the School of Nursing, the Duke Diet and Fitness Center, Durham’s Hospice Nurses, Durham’s Smart Start Program staff, and the Veterans Administration, among many others. I have also taught continuing education workshops for medical personnel through the NC AHEC programs and as a keynote speaker for Prevent Child Abuse NC.
The trainings I offer are tailored to professionals of any background. Participants learn skills and gain experience to bring mindfulness forward in their professional lives and work.
