Mindfulness - How to Increase Efficiency, Creativity, and Workplace Harmony

What is mindfulness anyway? Mindfulness has become the antithesis to multitasking; instead of focusing on many things at once, which can cause poor decision making and lead to confusion, stress, and poor communication, mindfulness includes calming and focusing of the mind, often through meditation and breathing practices. A 2003 study, and 6 week implementation of a mindfulness program, showed that 70% of participants took fewer sick days due to depression and anxiety. In the following 3 years following the study, absences for all health conditions were halved.

The overall concept behind mindfulness is to teach employees that even when they can’t control things around them, they can still control their own response. Kate Bartlett, of Human Resource Services, notes that the following characteristics of a mindful workplace include:

  • Lower levels of stress and illness-related absenteeism;
  • Higher employee engagement;
  • Greater productivity;
  • Less conflict;
  • Higher levels of job satisfaction;
  • Lower levels of employee turnover; and
  • Higher levels of creativity and innovation.

Promote positive and socially-responsible decisions at your dealership!! Consider reading “The Mindful Workplace,” by Michael Chaskalson, or Google’s mindful training course, “Search Inside Yourself; The Unexpected Path to Achieving Success.”
