Mindfulness was introduced to the health community by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. at the U Mass Medical Center in the 1970's. It has since become the focus of many studies and has been utilized by major corporations and others in pursuit of excellence.
Organizations like Google and Aetna, as well as sports teams including the Chicago Bulls, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Seattle Seahawks have been among the many who are using mindfulness to improve performance. It is a promising strategy that is gaining acceptance.
The most common way to learn mindfulness skills is to participate in an 8 week group process. These groups meet weekly for 2 hours each week. Mindfulness groups in this format have been extensively studied and research demonstrates their effectiveness.
The Healthy Thinking Initiative can provide these groups for your organization. Dr. Weaver has facilitated these groups since 1997. for more information or to schedule groups for your workplace, click here.
Leadership retreats help to introduce your management team to a way of leading that is more authentic. Organizations that lead with character and an inner focus have been shown to be up to five times more effective than organizations with leaders that are more self-focused.
