It is only too easy to blame outer circumstances as the cause of difficulties at work. Awareness in Action training focuses on enabling people to make the connection between what is going on for them internally with their thoughts and emotions and what is happening to them externally in their jobs.
Choosing how you want to react
Stuck patterns of thoughts and emotions block creativity, the capacity to respond to change and the ability to problem solve. Reacting emotionally to a situation means seeing only 10% of the situation clearly, leading to miscommunication, and errors. Our training helps employees to identify their habits and choose how they want to react to situations. This defuses their inner time bomb of frustration and stress and makes it possible for an organization to move from an embattled communication style to one of engagement.
Sustainability from the individual to the organization
The tools that Awareness in Action offers in order to manage the mind are mindfulness, meditation and compassion training. Through this training employees can develop high levels of self-sufficiency, independence and responsibility and become more able to manage the challenges of their work environment. The changes that these techniques bring about on an individual level naturally influence the team level, and impact the level of the organization as a whole.
Secular applications backed by current scientific research
There is a growing body of research that backs up the effectiveness of these techniques in modern, secular environments. Neuroscientists are investigating the effects of meditation and compassion training on the brain and are discovering positive indications in terms of working with emotions, depression, anxiety, resilience and health.
