Mindfulness and Energy Management

Potential Project Senior Trainer Chin Lai Meng has written an article on Mindfulness and Energy Management which was recently published in the Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce & Industry magazine.

Leaders and decision-makers need to sustain a high level of energy to handle the demands that the modern working environment makes on our attention. Mindfulness as a practice can conserve our energy so that this vital resource can be managed and sustained. Lai Meng's article outlines scientific research into mindfulness as energy management and describes how mindfulness can be applied as a workplace practice.

TPP at 1st Mindfulness in Business Conference in the UK

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.
