15 Feb Invest In The Mind To Improve Your Business
Over the past couple of years, myriad companies around the world have been instituting new leadership philosophies in an effort to transform their workforce. With a new year upon us, and progressive companies looking for innovative ways to improve their bottom lines and retain valued employees, corporate mindfulness continues to make great headway throughout executive boardrooms across corporate America and abroad.
Corporate mindfulness involves company executives leading the way to help their employees overcome the pressures that come with the daily grind of work and other personal responsibilities, and to guide them to prosperity on this work-life journey. Most of us know about the benefits of physical exercise to improve our health and reduce stress, but what do we really know about mental exercise?
More and more studies are showing that having a healthy mental state is imperative for better health, helping us reduce stress levels inherent in our lives and leading to greater happiness. The problem is that most people don’t know much about how and why to practice mental fitness, and if they do, they can’t find the time to devote to it. But in my view, people can’t really afford not to invest the time to better their mental state.
Related to this is the notion that the success of a company relies on the organizational productive energy and individual self-worth. In order to have a strong, industrious workforce, leaders must choose to invest in healthy, energetic employees who support each other, and who focus on a greater purpose in life than merely working toward financial gain. And it’s for this reason that a growing number of progressive companies are installing leadership that lifts their business to a higher level of consciousness to achieve a sustainable and thriving organization.
To this end, companies are assigning corporate officers as ambassadors of this growing leadership philosophy to educate, nurture and inspire their employees with better mental fitness programs and self-leadership skills to provide each individual with the choice to fulfill their potential. Specifically, they’re finding success in achieving this through corporate mindfulness techniques in the workplace during work hours.
