An invitation to participate in the first Mindfulness in Business Conference gave UK-based TPP Trainer Sally Muir a chance to lead a session on TPPs approach to Mindfulness in business through its “Corporate-Based Mindfulness Training (CBMT)”.
The conference was awash with organisations offering mindfulness in business courses in a variety of forms, so there were many experts in the topic of mindfulness present. It was very exciting to witness that TPP had a very powerful model of delivery, one that encompasses three main aspects of mindfulness that engage businesses:
- Scientific research
- Positive psychology
- Eastern philosophy
Says Sally Muir: “We do not excuse our inclusion of Eastern Philosophy, drawing from it the ancient practice that informs mindfulness while keeping the approach secular. It has depth and it works wonderfully!”
The 70+ participants seemed to agree, emphasizing in particular the authenticity of the workshop delivery: simple yet powerful; including short, regular sessions of formal mindfulness training. The practical benefits of “Mindfulness in Action” as well as the “Attitudes” , was something that was commented on, with comments ranging from: “It was absolutely fantastic," to “it was clear, well presented and easy to understand.”
The conference was delightful, informative event which linked many people in mindfulness around Europe. Hats off to Juliet Adams, the host, for her amazing vision and organisational abilities in making the event a success, and to the success of all who attended and brought such a wealth of experience, knowledge and enthusiasm that will surely help support and shape businesses around the world in a very positive way into the future.
Potential Project Senior Trainer Martin Ström interviewed Jeremy Hunter, an Assistant Professor of Practice from the Peter Drucker School of Management who has taught mindfulness to executives for more than a decade. Jeremy shared the story of how he came to teach mindfulness, his thoughts on how mindfulness is received in the workplace, and what role mindfulness can play in the modern business world.
