mindfulness & meditation
“Peace - it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. Instead, it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.” ~ Anonymous
Mindfulness and meditation are the essential soft skills for personal development as well as leadership development in the corporate environment. The benefits are increasingly being recognised. We are seeing more business leaders and companies promoting and encouraging their employees to practice mindfulness and meditation to improve engagement and productivity.
These benefits are also the key ingredients for the workplace health. They include:
