In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and freedom."

Mindfulness at work
Mindfulness in companies is becoming increasingly common as awareness grows of the positive impact it has on business, especially when there are issues of work overload and work burn out. These include organisations such as Google, Nike, Goldman Sachs and people such as Bill Gates. Sometimes the best way to speed up is to slow down and unwind, especially in high-pressure environments. Mindfulness skills can help leaders and teams boost creativity and deal with tense meetings, relationships and reduce stress levels.
Focusing less on impulse reactions, meditation helps us improve leadership, develop thoughtfulness, support and trust, and make smarter decisions and stronger teams. Being able to consider one's reactions can have a dramatic impact on customer care.
Encouraging employees to take time to pause in the middle of the modern workplaces, time to slow down and feel present, can seem at odds with most companies' aims. But mindfulness is gaining credibility in the corporate world and is making a positive impact on employees' ability to focus, support each other, decision-making and overall wellbeing.
When employees are feeling fed up with work, knowing that their managers are taking steps to help them deal with work stress or burning out can lead to a more committed and happier workforce.
